Virtual Servers & Cloud Computing

Virtualisation platforms have made it possible to run far fewer physical servers, as most servers stand idle or at low utilisation for most of the day. By sharing server resources, we can provide high performance RAID-protected SAN storage based on 15K SAS drives on a redundant platform with expansion capacity for your changing requirements, in one of the most connected UK datacentres, often at the same price as a entry-level dedicated server solution.

We operate a number of virtualisation platforms, but by far the most popular is based on the Xen-hypervisor which makes it possible to run virtually any common operating system. We use Citrix XenServer with central storage, giving us the ability to migrate virtual servers between physical servers, allowing for zero-downtime maintenance in the event of upgrades.

We use high spec Dell PowerEdge R710 servers with two quad-core or six-core Xeon low voltage (energy efficient) processors.

Why should I choose NetConnex?

  • We do not rely on any single supplier for our network connectivity . We run an 'autonomous' network which means we are in control over how our routes are announced to the Internet.
  • Our network is designed and maintained for performance and quality which are our priority #1. We provide hosting to companies specialising in network metrics/monitoring and VoIP, applications which are very sensitive to latency, jitter, packet loss and speed variations.
  • We monitor everything. We monitor servers, switches, routers, availability and performance to various international destinations, BGP announcements, traffic levels,
  • We have been providing hosting services since 1997 and have run our own autonomous network for over 10 years. You can rest assured we are financially sound and technically competent. We still have many customers who signed up over ten years ago!
  • We are members of LINX and LONAP so we can interconnect directly with most of the UK network operators . This helps us to get the fastest and most reliable connectivity to key broadband networks and hosting companies, and when problems do arise, we can liaise directly with network engineers of the relevant networks We have diverse connections to both exchanges.
  • We use the best quality international transit providers and our routing policies ensure we pick the optimal path. We have diverse links at 1Gbps or faster to tier-1 providers in multiple sites.
  • We have direct relationships with co-location facilities, with no third parties involved. This protects us from failure of intermediate suppliers.
  • We are a Local Internet Registry within the RIPE region, so we can assign IP space directly to clients from our aggregate block, so it shows up being registered to you.

“We specialise in providing call centres with cost effective VoIP services, so the quality of our platform is absolutely critical. Our customers would notice even a couple of seconds of interruption, at any time, day or night.

We use NetConnex to co-locate our equipment in multiple datacentres, provide our IP connectivity and the inter-site links that connect it all together."

Adam Crisp CEO, (customer since 2005)
