Two independent network connections to each server guarantee high availability
Every server is connected to one of our Primary (A) network switches. Our Primary network switches are connected with no less than 10 Gigabits/sec uplinks to TWO different routers. Each router is connected to multiple Internet uplinks. This means if an Internet provider goes out, you do not have an outage. If a router goes out, you do not have an outage.
Equipment does fail; and if a provider who says otherwise, they not being honest with you. What can you do about this? We can connect your server to our Backup (B) network switches. These are not relate to our Primary network in any way. (This is key. Other providers will setup a LAG with two network connections, or to two different switches in a stack, or two different line cards in a chassis. This DOES NOT COMPARE). By connecting to two diverse switches there is configuration resiliency. The Backup (B) network switches are connected in the same way, with no less than 10 Gigabits/sec uplinks to TWO different routers. There is NO SINGLE POINT OF FAILURE. This is a true 2N configuration. Beyond 2N, this is a resilient configuration, which means even in the rare event of a wrong configuration change, we would have to mess up in two places to interrupt your service. Connectivity to all servers is automatically verified before and after each change to prevent two changes from creating a service interruption
