High-end servers, stellar support and management all housed inside an enterprise grade data center.
WebPlanet Hosting operates out of a state of the art Steadfast data center located centrally in downtown Chicago, IL. The data center was constructed offering fully redundant N +1 power, HVAC, network connectivity and security. The facility sits atop multiple power grids with full UPS battery backup power, diesel generators on site and a network that is supplied by several separate premium network providers - Level(3), NTT, gtt and Cogent allowing for optimal speeds and reliability. Further, dozens more third party backbone providers are available in the facility such as Verizon, Global Crossing, Abovenet, Qwest, XO Communication and Sprint.
The fiber handed off to our Chicago data center is delivered over fully redundant paths, with diverse entry points and building risers. These facilities have been built to meet the high demands and reliability requirements of telecommunications providers and Fortune 500 companies, and have achieved the rigorous SAS70 and SSAE16 compliance audits.
