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.


Our main servers are located in Beauharnois, Canada with custom water-cooled servers, powered by Hydroelectricity. The property has over 1,000,000 square feet of rentable space and boasts significant electrical and HVAC infrastructure as well as robust telecom access critical to enterprise data center tenants.

To guarantee the maximum redundancy and availability of your server internet connection, all links are at least doubled at every routing point.

The data center offers complete redundancy in power, HVAC, network connectivity, and security. Beauharnois data center facilities sit atop multiple power grids, 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 facilities 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.
