Managed Dedicated Hosting
Our focus is on your entire dedicated IT infrastructure. With GigeNET's Managed Dedicated Hosting, you receive a dedicated support & engineering team, combined with a fully redundant network, a world class datacenter, and industry leading Service Level
GigeNET operates its own 17,000 sq. ft. private data facility. Instead of leasing space from a third-party wholesaler, we have built and maintain our own facility. This affords us the flexibility to expand, strict cost controls, higher security standards, and overall
better facility management.
With several Tier 1 premium bandwidth providers delivered through strategically diverse points to our private datacenter, GigeNET's 100% uptime network provides the performance and reliability that you expect for your hosting infrastructure. Redundant Juniper routers
direct traffic over our private fiber optic network, delivering it to your servers on Cisco's 6500 series switching platform. In addition, a partnership with Internap provides routing optimization that reduces network latency by up to 50% compared to standard BGP routing protocols.

In a traditional server environment, individual physical servers are dedicated to specific tasks. Services such as HTTP, SQL, FTP, LDAP, DNS, and file storage all run on separate physical machines where each machine may only utilize 20-50% of its available resources.
With virtualization technology, a single physical server can provide multiple virtual environments, completely separated from each other and still dedicated to a particular task. Now you can reduce the number of physical servers in half, or even more, fully utilizing
each physical server and reducing your hosting costs significantly.
