Where does the name GigE 'BOX come from?

We originated as a linux terminal hosting company back in 2009 under the brand "optimizedshells.com" later trading as "HostRazor.net" and rebranding to GIGEBOX.com early 2012.

In computer networking, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE or 1 GigE) is a term describing various technologies for transmitting Ethernet frames at a rate of a gigabit per second (1,000,000,000 bits per second), as defined by the IEEE 802.3-2008 standard. On our network we use these Gigabit connections with our servers also known as "boxes" - hence the name: GIGEBOX.COM

Maximum Physical Security!

In our datacenter, access is strictly monitored. To avoid any intrusions or risks, each perimeter is secured with barbed wire fences. The area is also monitored by constant video surveillance and motion detection sensors. Activity both within and outside of the datacenters is monitored and recorded on secure servers, with surveillance teams working on site, 24/7.

  • Servers can only be physically accessed by authorized employees
  • CCTV video surveillance and security personnel 24/7 on-site
  • Rooms fitted with smoke detection systems.


High-quality routing infrastructure!

To guarantee the maximum redundancy and availability of your server internet connection, all links are at least doubled at every routing point. Two Cisco routers (each with two network cards) make up the physical connection to your server. The fibre optic cables are at least doubled, and sometimes tripled.

  • Guaranteed high speed, high quality bandwidth and low latency time.
  • Anti-DDOS is capable of mitigating up all types of attack, 24/7.
  • 24/7 Server and Network Monitoring.

High availability infrastructure!

  • Systematic double power supply
  • 250 kVA per device
  • Generators with an initial autonomy of 48 hrs
  • Minimum of 2 network connections to and within the datacenter.
  • Advanced network capacities: 10Gb+ and 40Gb+ connectivity on main network.


Record ecological achievements!

  • 98% of our hosting rooms are free from air conditioning
  • The Water cooling enables 70% of heat emitted by the processors to be dispersed
  • Air-cooling evacuates the remaining 30%
  • Energy costs halved
  • PUE below 1.2 constantly reducing our data center energy consumption.


Our data center offers complete redundancy in power, HVAC, network connectivity, and security. The facility sit atop multiple power grids powered by hydro electricity, with full UPS battery backup power and diesel generators onsite with a network that is supplied by several separate networks including, Level(3), NTT, Tinet, and nLayer. Dozens more third party backbone providers are available in the facility via cross connect, such as Verizon, Global Crossing, Abovenet, Qwest, XO Communication, Sprint, and Cogent. The fiber provided to the Canadian data center is also provided over redundant paths, with diverse entry points and building riser. The data center facilities have been built to meet the high demands and reliability of telecommunications providers and Fortune 500 companies and have achieved SAS70 / SSAE16 compliance.

  • The fiber provided to the data centers is also provided over redundant paths.
  • Available Networks: Abovenet, Verizon, Qwest, Level3, BT, CME, ICE, and over 100 other networks.
  • Internal Cabling: Cat6/6e for 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Single-Mode and Multi-Mode Fiber, Overhead Cable Trays

Our network utilizes routing and switching products from Brocade, Cisco Systems, and Juniper Networks, the leaders in the industry. We utilize redundant Brocade MLXe routers as our core routers/switches, Cisco 6500 and Juniper EX8200 (depending on location) switches in our distribution layer, and Cisco 2960 and Juniper EX2200 switches in our aggregation/customer layer. Additional network equipment includes an InterNAP FCP to optimize overall network routing and performance, assuring the lowest latency and jitter to sustain high frequency trading, voice services, and game server providers. In addition, redundant 10 Gigabit Ethernet circuits are used across the entire core of the network to reduce the risks of internal congestion due to DDoS attacks and to maintain optimal flexibility.
