The Easyspace Network
The Easyspace network infrastructure is built around the 10 UK data centres (located in Glasgow, London, Maidenhead, Manchester, Nottingham and Leicester) owned and managed by the company. Owning and managing these data centres allows Easyspace to guarantee high levels of resilience and uptime, not to mention the flexibility of creating its own network as it sees fit (rather than relying on 3rd party data centre setup).
The data centres are linked via 1GB per second (Gbps) fibre ring and all exchange hardware required to keep it running is housed in purpose built storage on each site. The network hub of each data centre includes Cisco switching, dual power supplies and a range of fabric enabled line cards, supporting both fibre and copper gigabit connections.
All network, transit links and servers are monitored continually by our automatic systems, meaning that should any issue arise, it is found and fixed quickly.
This resilience and security allows Easyspace to offer high levels of uptime on all of its dedicated servers.
