Overview

About Gigenet

Gigenet was originally founded in 1997 as a virtual web hosting and application development provider. In 2003, an official filing was made and the company changed their core focus to web hosting and co-location services.

Gigenet operates their own private data center in Arlington Heights, IL. The 17,000 square foot facility features cutting edge security & environmental controls; including Liebert HVAC systems, VESDA smoke detection, double-action dry pipe fire suppression, diesel generator backup, uninterruptible power supplies, proximity card access, 24/7 on-site staffing, and diverse-path fiber connectivity to their two downtown POP’s.

The company specializes in managed co-location & dedicated servers, DDoS mitigation, and disaster recovery solutions.

Why Gigenet

Pinnacle Support
Beyond the servers, 100% uptime network guarantee, and our industry leading portal, Gigenet's core focus is providing you with a level of service that cannot be compared to by any other hosting provider. It's not marketing fluff, it's not empty promises. Our ecstatic clients are a testament to it. It's our way of doing business.

Pinnacle Support Philosphy
True 24 x 7 x 365 On-Site Engineers

With hosting customers in more than 140 countries across the globe, we understand the importance that your websites are operational around the clock. And when something needs to be fixed, it needs to be fixed now. Gigenet's entire technical support staff operates on-site, in the same facility that your servers are located, 24 hours per day. So the next time you need something fixed, you know that when you call you'll speak to a live engineer who is capable of resolving your issue immediately.

Trained & Certified Professionals
Every single one of Gigenet's support engineers have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the hosting industry. In addition, the majority of our technical staff hold certifications in Linux, Microsoft, Cisco, and other areas related to your server deployment. Having an experienced, trained, and certified group of technical support engineers is crucial to ensuring the smooth operation of your hosting infrastructure.

Dedicated Support Team
Having a team of professionals dedicated to supporting your particular hosting platform is essential to ensuring maximum uptime, performance, and speedy resolution to any problems that may arise. Gigenet takes a different approach to providing support. When you call or submit a ticket, you know that you aren't in a queue to be answered by a random "call center" rep. You will be assigned to a dedicated support team that understands your infrastructure and you'll work with the same people every time; from planning your initial deployment, to resolving issues, expanding, maintaining your systems, and everything in between.

Hardware, Network, Power, & Support SLA's

Beyond our promises of 100% network uptime, high quality server-grade hardware, and industry-leading support, you have the security of knowing that our claims are backed with written guarantees. If we don't exceed your expectations, beat our promises, and provide the overall best hosting experience that you've ever had, we'll pay you for it.

100 Percent Network Uptime SLA

Your business simply cannot afford downtime. By partnering with Cisco & Juniper to develop a completely redundant, self healing high-performance network, Gigenet is able to boast one of the best uptime records in our industry. We provide you the reassurance that your infrastructure is in good hands.
How Do We Do It?

Dedicated Team
Receive a single point of contact with a dedicated account manager, your own systems engineer that will design your entire infrastructure, a 24/7 Level 3 support team that is here to resolve any technical issues you may have around the clock.

Redundant Network

A fully redundant network with diverse POP's is powered by Juniper & Cisco gear & monitored around-the-clock by certified network engineers. A separate, 1000 Mb/s private network enables you to deploy and grow a fully scalable load balanced cluster.
Worldclass Datacenter
Gigenet operates our own world-class datacenter in Chicago, IL. Facility features: VESDA smoke detection, double-action dry pipe fire suppression, diesel generator backup, in-line UPS, Liebert HVAC systems, proximity card access, IP surveillance system, 24/7 on-site staff, and redundant fiber connections to our two downtown POPs.

Industry Leading Service Level Agreements

No downtime. That is our philosophy. The best network, the best hardware, and the best support in the industry. These are meaningless claims if they are not backed by a written guarantee.

Rapid Server Provisioning
Launching a new service? Running a marketing blitz? Is your social application seeing unexpected growth? You need a server online now. GigeNET can deliver. Our average server deployment is two hours or less.

Industry Leading Self-Service Portal
At GigeNET, our customers have the capability to manage every aspect of your hosting environment through an intuitive centralized web portal. Our team of dedicated software development engineers are constantly adding new tools & features that make managing your servers easier & more efficient.

Datacenter Profile

Gigenet operates our own 17,000 sq. ft. private data facility. Instead of leasing space from a third-party wholesaler, we have built and maintain our own IDC. Doing so provides us with flexibility to expand, strict cost controls, higher security standards, and overall better facility management.

Network
Multi-homed redundant fiber connections and peering with Tier-1 providers ensure you're always connected and that your data takes the quickest, most efficient routes for optimal transfer speeds. Maintenance and support contracts with all of our vendors, along with third party consultants, ensure constant uptime and availability.

Power
Uninterrupted power solutions that are flexible and upgradeable provide constant power to your hardware. Our Mitsubishi UPS battery system takes over instantly while our diesel generator starts up.

Security
Multi-layer security control procedures, staffed 24/7, proximity card readers, and IP video monitoring ensure that your hardware is never tampered with. Public access is not available unless personally escorted by Gigenet staff or authorized ISP's.

Fire Suppression
VESDA smoke detection, double-action dry pipe fire suppression modules prevent emergencies before they start.

Cooling
Leibert HVAC redundant architecture with overhead air distribution makes sure that your equipment is always operating at optimum temperatures.


Internap Optimized Network
With eleven premium bandwidth providers delivered through two diverse points to our private datacenter, our 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%.

Internap-Optimized Network

Traditional networks are managed using BGP, a protocol that attempts to improve network performance by measuring the distance (number of hops) between the end user and the server they are accessing. The shortest distance between two points is not always the fastest. Utilizing Internap's FCP-10Gx routing optimization appliance, every path out from our network is continuously monitored for latency, packet loss, route stability, and congestion. This method of routing optimization ensures maximum network performance.

Continuously monitors every outbound route for latency, packet loss, route stability, and congestion
Automatically routes traffic around major network outages
Manages network issues such as IP network brownouts
Proactively identifies and chooses the best path at all times
