Why Us

When you sign up for service with CAT5 Hosting Solutions, we don't just put you on any old server like all the other hosts. We place you on a sever closest to your physical location (based on IP Address) and because of our multiple data centers, chances are we have a data center usually within a very close distance to you.

Fully Redundant Data Center Power

With multiple SAS 70 Type II Certified data centers located in Seattle, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, New York & Miami as well as Europe and Asia we deliver complete redundancy in supplying data center power to servers and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. If any of our data centers were to experience a power disruption for any reason, you're covered. That's because we have a complete power management system, including backup generators, in the unlikely event that normal power supplies fail.

Uninterrupted Power Supply

Servers within our data centers are fed power through an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) that takes raw power from a utility to control, modulate, and supply it power to thousands of individual servers. (See diagram) The UPS prevents power surges or local brown outs from affecting server performance. Power typically flows from the local utility to our UPS system to power our servers and the building's lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. In the unlikely event that the local utility power supply is disrupted, our N+1 generator architecture assures that backup generators kick in automatically.

Our High-Powered, Screaming-Fast Network

Our network speed and capacity eliminate bandwidth traffic jams and roadblocks to assure high volume, instantaneous response for hosted applications. By using multiple Tier 1 telecom providers and direct Internet connections, we bypass transit networks and shorten the network path between your websites and your visitors. The result is lower latency, maximum speed and unsurpassed reliability. In short, we provide you with connectivity, bandwidth and stability you simply can't find anywhere else.

State-of-the-art Network Operations Center

We offer 24x7x365 redundant monitoring capabilities from server-oriented response centers in each city, as well as centralized network monitoring from the Network Operations Center (NOC). The NOC has Cisco-certified technical support on duty at all times to rapidly respond to any network problem. In the event of some sort of natural disaster that could affect our NOC, the NOC is able to transfer operations to another location before the disaster actually manifests itself. We leverage state-of-the-art network monitoring software combined with highly defined monitoring and escalation procedures to ensure the highest standards for security, reliability, performance and systems availability.

Location, Location, Location

CAT5 Hosting hand-selects the best location in each continent for DC operations. We partner with the best to bring you the best! The following server locations are available for instant deployment for shared and VPS products: Seattle, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, New York & Miami.

Parallel, Redundant, Multi-Tiered Network Architecture

We have taken special care in building one of the best network routing and switching infrastructures in the industry. Designed without single points of failure, our network operates at full redundancy across multiple layers that contain redundant core routers, core distribution switches and carrier diversity.

The NOC Staff Monitors

Our redundant network cores in all of our data centers: if a router or high-level network appliance goes down for any reason, there is no loss of service.
The multiple cross-connects between our data centers: if any multi-gigabit connection becomes unavailable, traffic automatically re-routes to the remaining connections. No datacenter has less than two connections.
The speed and performance of our network routes: analyzing and optimizing when necessary.
