Our Network

STATE-OF-THE-ART DATACENTre Facilities

We continually invest in our hardware and platform in order to provide a cutting edge service that moves with the times.

Valcato Shared Hosting is powered by powerful Intel Xeon Nehalem-based servers. Each server has two CPUs, with four CPU cores and Hyperthreading, giving a total of sixteen virtual CPUs – enough power for even busy web sites.

Not only that, but each server is backed by a high-performance RAID storage array, providing excellent speed and reliability. Data reads and writes happen across multiple hard drives simultaneously, vastly reducing latency, and all data is stored on more than one drive meaning that if a drive fails the system will stay online until we schedule the drive to be replaced at a convenient time.

On top of this state of the art hardware, our servers run a modern Linux operating system with the latest stable version of the cPanel® control panel. We also make use of Ksplice, allowing operating system security updates to be installed quickly and with no disruption to service.

Security
The facility was previously a purpose built data centre and payment processing centre for a major UK bank so the site itself occupies its own secure compound and already had some very useful security features.

Two new alarm systems have been added as well as two new CCTV recording systems (N+N).  We have also replaced the older access control systems and added electric gates with anti tail gate for vehicles and also an advanced anti tailgating portal for visitors accessing the data hall areas
