Our Secured Servers
If it weren't important,
you wouldn't have put it on your Web site. And it doesn't matter how important
your web site is, if nobody can connect to it, it's useless. That's why
using MICROLINQ is such a smart choice. We make sure your Web site is
up and running, all day, every day. But it's not just reliable, it's blazing
fast. We deliver the fastest, most reliable service available anywhere.
How do we do it? Check out some of our strategies:
Redundant Internet Connections
MICROLINQ systems are connected to the Internet via fully redundant, multiple
T3 connections. We're hooked up to a T3 through UUNET and another T3 through
Sprint. Some of our competitors claim that they're connected to the Internet
through multiple T3s as well, but look closely. Chances are, their so-called
multiple T3s are sold to them by the same provider, so if one of their
routers goes down, their entire connection goes down. But not at MICROLINQ.
If one of our T3s goes down, the other one can reroute the traffic in
seconds while we work on getting the connection back up. All without the
slightest interruption in performance.
We route traffic from our server systems to our redundant T3 connections
through, you guessed it, redundant routers. We use two Cisco Series 7513
routers (people who know routers are drooling right about now), with a
host of other Cisco routers, hubs, and switches taking traffic from your
servers to the Internet. In plain English, that means your data is in
good hands. Because if a router goes down or if a hub goes down your service
will stay online.
