Our East Coast Data Center

Connectivity
Our datacenter is connected via 10-Gigabit Ethernet & 2.5Gbps Wavelength handoff(s) on redundant/dual-path OC48/OC192 DWDM fiber-optic transport connections to XO Communications and Zayo Bandwidth. Verizon (Formerly Bell Atlantic PA) and Frontier Communications (Formerly Commonweath Telephone - CTSI), fiber is also available in the facility. The network currently connects POPs (Points of Presence) in Scranton, Philadelphia, & NYC. Transit is provided via multiple 10-Gigabit/Gigabit Ethernet transit circuits from Global Crossing (http://www.gblx.com), Cogent Communications (http://www.cogentco.com), BTN/PCCW (http://www.btnaccess.com), XO Communications (http://www.xo.com), Hurricane Electric (http://www.he.net), & Deutsche Telekom (http://www.deutschetelekom-icss.com). We also peer with multiple carriers at the New York Internet Exchange (http://www.nyiix.net). For redundancy, Hosting and Designs L.L.C. is currently running BGP4 (border gateway routing protocol) to maintain the speed and uptime for all our dedicated servers. If one backbone line goes down, it will balance the load to the other(s). If one line gets congested, it will load balance the traffic. Hosting and Designs L.L.C. is currently negotiating with additional major backbone providers to open POPs in the Hosting and Designs L.L.C. Scranton PA facility, with XO Communications being available already at this time. We are currently the only major east coast data center facility within 60-75 miles of the Tier-3 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre PA USA Metro Area.

Hardware
The Network Operations Center utilizes ONLY top name brand hardware. The network is centered on Cisco 6500-series border/core routers and 4900M switches, connecting via Gigabit Ethernet (1000mbps) to the Cisco 6500-series aggregation switches. Hewlett Packard Procurve & Extreme Summit 24/48/4 managed distribution switches comprise the power and stability of the internal network, operating at 10/100/1000 mbps switched ethernet speeds. The network is protected from Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks via Cisco Guard protection systems. Hardware utilized in the facility is comprised of name brands, including the following: Intel, Asus, Supermicro, AMD, Adaptec, Cisco, Kingston, Micron, Crucial, 3Ware, Maxtor, Abit, Western-Digital, Seagate, Hitachi, Dell, Realtec, & Belkin, APC, Tripp-Lite, Powerware, & Liebert. Facility monitoring is provided by a Geovision Digital Video System over Sony & Panasonic CCTV cameras.

Failsafe Power Supply
Our Network Operations Center currently has 1200amps 480V & 800amps 208V 3-Phase power currently available from PP&L (Pennsylvania Power & Electric). The facility is currently backed up and protected by multiple 275KVA and 160KVA Powerware 9315/9395 facility-wide UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems, which feed PDI, MGE, & Liebert PDU (Power Distribution Unit) systems. In a very rare case of utility outage, our Cummins 250KW & Detroit Diesel 580KW & 675KW deisel generators start automatically, taking over for the UPS systems and supplying all necessary power for the facility. The generators interface to the power grids thru Asco 7000 & RussElectric RTBD automatic transfer panels. With multiple fuel tanks on-site, the generators are capable of running without refueling for approximately 48 hours.

Environment
East Coast Datacenter for dedicated servers with DDoS protectionPrecision-controlled raised floor air conditioning systems protect and cool mission-critical servers and equipment in the Network Operations Center. The facility is controlled by multiple 30-Ton APC/Airflow, 20-Ton Liebert, & 20-Ton Data Aire dual-compresser redundant systems. These systems provide a virtually dust-free and particle-free computing environment, with temperature, humidity, and air-quality regulation.

Security
Restricted access to the Network Operations Center is monitored by qualified personnel 24 hours a day, every day. Visitors and clientele are only allowed on-site if escorted by Network Operations Center staff. The entire Network Operations Center is monitored, ensuring prompt response and thorough coverage to fire or security alarms. We supply all our Network Operations Center customers with advanced firewall, encryption, intrusion detection and other security measures. Hosting and Designs L.L.C. maintains a full digital video surveillance system of the Network Operations Center, with full on-site and off-site recording.

Backup Systems
These services are optionally available to all dedicated server clientele. Hosting and Designs L.L.C. offers secondary hard drives for data backups and also utilizes off-server and off-site backup services labeled as "external backup".

24x7x365 Monitoring
The Network Operations Center uses industry-standard SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and provides round-the-clock monitoring of all hardware, including routers, switches, UPS systems, and servers. The Network Operations Center also monitors power, environmental factors (such as temperature and humidity), generator status, East Coast Datacenter for dedicated servers with DDoS protection and network connectivity. All critical services/ports can be monitored, including FTP, HTTP, SMTP, HTTPS, SSH, TELNET, and POP3. We provide network monitoring of the Local Area Network, Internet connectivity (all routers, switches, and wiring), and the Internet backbone via MRTG. Our close and constant communication with our upstream backbone providers ensures that our customers have constant access to high-performance Internet connections. Failure on any monitoring service results in audible alarms, LAN messages, and alerting our staff paging system. Hosting and Designs L.L.C. offers remote cold boot hardware for dedicated server, with private, password protected, web based access.

Software
The Network Operations Center utilizes the CentOS Linux operating system on the majority of servers present. CentOS Linux is a highly configurable system, and well known for speed and stability. CentOS Linux servers have been documented to remain operating for up to one year at a time without even requiring a reboot. The Apache Web Server nicely compliments the CentOS Linux Operating System. The majority of remaining servers operate on the Microsoft Windows 2003/2008 Server operating system, with Internet Information Server Web Server. Microsoft Windows 2003/2008 Server provides a system that simplifies database, application, and visual effect programming. Hosting and Designs L.L.C. also supports FreeBSD, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian operating systems. CPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, vePortalw/OpenVZ, & Virtuozzo control panels compliment the default operating systems.

New Lower SSL Offerings - Secure Socket Layer certificates can be an important part of security for any website but is often a feature that is reluctantly purchased due to the expense involved. Not only can the price be steep for some, but SSL certificates need to be renewed each year adding to the total cost each time it is renewed.
Fortunately there have been solutions to this problem and one such provider is called RapidSSL who offer SSL for only $49 per year. Even though more expensive SSL certificates are more popular and promoted more frequently, the argument can be made that this is simply due to the higher profit margins that are involved and businesses wanting to maximize consumer trust. Even though higher cost SSL certificates do provide more security than RapidSSL, what is most important is that at least some sort of SSL is enabled on a website that is verified by a third-party.
