Hosting solutions provider dotCom host today announced that it has bolstered its network with four state-of-the-art data centers located in Southern California, Arizona, Virginia and The Netherlands.
dotCom host executives secured three data centers to supplement their primary San Diego facility after thorough tactical research and testing. Fully certified and compliant, the data centers feature optimal connectivity, redundant bandwidth, local network infrastructure, peering arrangements with knowledgeable network engineers and allow extremely high speeds without oversaturation, says the official press release.
“The datacenters we work with are pioneers in their own ways and often involve us in various pilot projects that keep us on top of the latest technologies and options in cloud hosting and virtualization,” Michelle Lockhart, VP-Sales, dotCOM.
“We are already seeing interest in what might be the next big thing: 4K high-definition video and 3D video without the use of 3D glasses. These technologies will use significantly more bandwidth than current formats, so we are beefing up our data pipes, increasing bandwidth commitments, and researching the best ways to provide distributed storage for these large video files,” she added.
The data centers also feature constant monitoring, backups, redundancy and are capable of handling large spikes in bandwidth use.
“Like insurance, you can get by without it, but it’s really nice to know you have it in place if something unexpected happens,” said Lockhart
“In our world, you can find cheap servers at many places, but with no backups, no redundancy or failover, no monitoring, no firewalls, no staff to handle problems – whether hardware failure, or natural disaster, or even unexpected business growth – your online livelihood is at risk,” she added.
