Business, Personal and Development Web Hosting Overview

You spend enough time trying to get your Website just right, and when you do, you want the world to see it. Choose SDS International, and you can be online in minutes. Below are some specifications common to all of the data centers we use:

Location is Everything!

All of the servers SDS International utilizes are located in the United States in modern data centers. All data centers are patrolled by armed guards, protected with physical and biometic access restrictions, and staffed by skilled engineers and support personnel to ensure the security, integrity and availability of our customers' technology infrastructure 24x365. The facilities we select to house our servers are carefully scrutinized, and are not selected based on price alone. SDS International considers only those data centers that meet our demanding standards, a few of which are detailed below:

  • Building and infrastructure designed to withstand at least a category 5 hurricane, or comparable catastrophic event
  • Building currently houses, or previously housed, equipment for at least one major telecommunications provider
  • Building receives power from at least two municipal power grids
  • Backup generators capable of sustaining the entire data center for a minimum of 7 days without requiring additional fuel deliveries
  • At least six Tier 1 bandwidth suppliers, with at least four separate entry points for data connections

Physical Security

Access to all of our data centers is strictly controlled. Armed security personnel either man the front door or patrol the grounds outside of all facilities. To guard against line failure or intrusion, the data center is staffed around the clock and monitored by a comprehensive security system incorporating proximity card readers and other devices, such as biometric scanners. NO public access is permitted under any circumstances. You can rest assured that only a handful of highly trained technicians will be allowed within close physical proximity to any server housing your data, and then only on an as-needed basis.

Reliability

The data centers have been engineered to avoid any single point of failure in connectivity, power, or HVAC. All servers receive 24-hour individual monitoring, for the highest level of personalized security. Our servers utilize hardware RAID 1 or RAID 5, which greatly increases data integrity. The level of connectivity redundancy designed into our data centers helps ensure zero downtime. Not 1%, we mean 0% unscheduled downtime. Our overall uptime guarantee of 99.9% is an aggressive goal, and one we have consistently met since we began offering Web hosting services. In fact, our uptime typically meets or exceeds 99.999% during any 30-day period.

Multiple Redundancy

Everything from the connections to the Internet backbone, to the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) has at least one backup.

Reducing Spam

SDS International employs myriad techniques designed to reduce Spam. Due to our use of real-time blocking lists from both Spamhaus and SpamCop, most Spam will never even reach you. For additional flexibility and control over individual email accounts, users can enable and configure both SpamAssassinTM and BoxTrapper Spam Trap via their control panels.

We Eat What We Cook

All of the servers SDS International utilizes for billing and other Web-based activities are located in the same facilities as our customers' Web servers. We do not compromise anything, and we do not expect you to, either.
