Data gets to where it needs to be — no matter where or when it's needed.
Datacenters, hardware, service level agreements (SLAs) and support are all important. But often, the network — what connects you to your end users — is overlooked. Historically, networks have caused many huge outages and extended downtime events. Which is why PEER 1 Hosting has invested so much time, money and expertise into building and evolving our proprietary FastFiber Network.
Very few hosting providers own their own networks — and only PEER 1 Hosting has successfully run and refined one for over a decade. Over that time, we have created a 10Gbps network that’s fast, redundant and resilient. It’s also intelligent — recognising potential traffic jams and latencies and helping our Network Operations Center (NOC) experts monitor and reroute data to optimal routes.
Not a single inch of the 25,000 miles of fiber that links together our 16 datacenters in Europe and North America is shared. It’s strictly for the use of our hosting customers. This means that our NOC can anticipate and mitigate potential issues that could affect your data transfers, because at any given moment it knows what our other clients’ data needs are.
Features and Benefits
Owning our own network offers a lot of benefits to our customers compared to what you get from a shared network.
The Speed of a Proprietary Network Backbone
With over 25,000 miles of fiber connecting 16 datacenters and 20 points of presence (PoPs), our FastFiber Network carries only PEER 1 Hosting traffic so that data paths are as uncluttered, fast and secure as possible.
The network and our NOC experts proactively identify potential network obstacles and send your traffic down paths of least resistance. They also mitigate the effects of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
Peered to the Right Network Partners
Because we are connected to over 1,500 network providers and multiple Tier 1 upstream providers, your data speed and performance do not drop once you leave the FastFiber Network.
Proprietary Content Delivery Network (CDN) and domain name system (DNS)
Built with our network and infrastructure in mind, our RapidEdge CDN™ and AnyCast DNS™ services help you speed up your business traffic even more.
MPLS and IPv6 Ready
Our network continually evolves to deliver what today’s businesses need to work online.
