About BexHost™ - Data Centre Features

Servers Location
Our servers are located at state of the art datacenter in the United Kingdom.

3 1000 MB Connections to the Internet

Our network is based on gigabit technology, which means that it runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second - most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second.

Gigabit Network
BexHost's network operates on industry-leading network equipment running at Gigabit speeds. Our network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable, which contains four pairs of copper wire and, unlike CAT5, utilises all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, which is the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.

Diverse Fibre Networks

Hosted on Dell Super Servers

We use only Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Utilising state-of-the-art technology we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none. Our current server specification is: Dual Quad Core Intel® Xeon® 3.16GHz with 2X6MB Cache, 8 GB RAM, Dual 136 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system), RAID Mirroring (for the operating system), Dual Power Supplies, Dual Gigabit Network Adapters.

Load Balanced Storage Systems

Redundant Data Backup
Our network arrays operate RAID, a way of configuring a system so a disk can fail with no impact to data. We also operate our network arrays in mirrored pairs so a whole array can fail with no impact. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster which is then written to tape and stored offsite. Our backup procedure goes above and beyond the majority of web hosting companies.

Redundant Power Feeds
Each rack has 2 independent power feeds, fed from 2 diverse connections to the national grid. Should one or both of these feeds fail 4 x 300kVA Riello UPS (N+1) battery backup systems will cover immediate power requirements. All power to the cabinets is supplied via the UPS to maintain clean supply to the servers.

Redundant Uninterruptible Power Supplies

Redundant Standby Generators
If mains power is not restored within 10 seconds 3 x N+1 diesel powered generators will start providing full continuous power to the data centre.<br /><br />Spare fuel for the generators is stored on-site and contracts are in place with fuel companies to deliver continuous emergency fuel for a virtually unlimited amount of time.

Redundant Cooling Systems
The data centre is fully climate controlled with N+1 Stultz DX Cybercool Air Conditioning Systems. The system monitors and controls the temperature and humidity levels. Drip sensors located below floor monitor for any leaks in the system. Cold air is forced underneath raised flooring into the bottom of each server rack, and vacuumed out of the top providing maximum cooling efficiency. The position of each server rack/apparatus is calculated by a dedicated deployment team to further optimise cooling efficiency.

24 X 7 X 365 Onsite Manned

Fire Suppression
Fire protection is provided by the FM200 Fire Suppression System which fills the sealed data centre with gas to extinguish any fire quickly without the use of water and without damage to any equipment.

The data centre is monitored by cctv both externally and internally. All CCTV images are recorded and stored for 3 months.

Secure Fence
The building is surrounded by a 8ft perimeter fence. gates are locked outside of normal business hours.

Secure Fob Access
There are two locking doors to go through for access to each of the separate data halls within DC2. These are locked and can only be opened using Secure Fobs which are only held by named staff.
