Hosting Data Centre

DATA CENTRE OVERVIEW

Electric Escape Hosting currently leases dedicated server space located in the heart of Auckland City, New Zealand. Our servers are located in a data centre which serves as one of the best connectivity sites in New Zealand, with close links to the Southern Cross Cable – New Zealand’s international connectivity gateway.

 

 

NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE

Our network is run on enterprise grade Cisco hardware, meaning that your websites load fast, without any worry about bottlenecks and congestion. We guarantee our network uptime at 99.9% SLA so you have peace of mind and can rest assured knowing that your websites and servers are run on a reliable and efficient network.

Electric Escape understands that connectivity is an important factor for a fast, reliable network. Our data centre has several backbone connections to the internet, through our national providers Telstra Clear, Telecom, Orcon, and Vector Fibre as well as peering at New Zealand peering exchanges APE (Auckland Peering Exchange) and WIX (Wellington Internet Exchange), as well as international providers AsiaNetCom and MCI. Connectivity to these providers are made possible by fibre optic cable, ethernet, and ATM technologies.

 

 

FULLY REDUNDANT POWER SOLUTIONS

In the unlikely event of a power outage, our data centre holds backup power systems, including online UPS and on-site battery banks which keep our servers running. We have an on-site diesel generator with SLA diesel supply which turns on when there is no power.

Our Data Centre environment is controlled by redundant indoor climate control systems that maintain an ambient temperature of 19 (+/- 1 deg) Celsius. We utilise hot and cold aisles, designed to drastically improve airflow between server racks.

Our Data Centre utilises VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) system which detects particles of smoke early before it can be detected by the human eye, as well as concrete floors, walls, and ceilings to ensure fire protection.
