Ultra-fast Gig-E dedicated server solutions

What is Gig-E hosting?

Hosting providers generally limit (or “throttle”) the data pipe from your server to the CISCO (or other) switch that links their cabinet to the internet. Usually this is done at 10Mbit or 100Mbit depending on the server plan that you commit to. The size of the data pipe effectively limits, or restricts the amount of data that can be transferred by your server at any given point in time. Given your own customers may have a download speed of 10, 20 or even 50Mbit per second it does not take many clients downloading content or surfing your site at any given time to saturate your 10Mbit data pipe. A slow surfer experience ultimately means lost income.

* Ultra Fast Gig-E uplinks * Zero throttling on data pipes * 100x Faster than a 10Mbit Leased Line * Single servers to Full Cluster solutions * Free Systems Consultation * Global data centres for Geo Targeting * Backup critical information in separate locations

This is the reason that Altwood has ALL its clients servers connected to multiple CISCO switches with unrestricted and un-throttled Gig-E data pipes – these are 100x the capacity of 10Mbit so called “leased lines” and x10 those with 100Mbit uplink connections. Please don’t be fooled by cheap Mbit pricing and restrict your income – with uplink speeds the size of your pipe really does matter!
