The UKFast multi-20Gb network includes multi-homing to provide the definitive optimised conditions for cloud hosting. Built for redundancy, speed and security, our UK-based, enterprise-grade data centres deliver fast and fail-safe routes to the internet.
With our UK data centres, located in multiple locations throughout the North-West, connected to multiple transit and peering connections we can guarantee both 100% network uptime, high-performance and security.
Designed for resilience, our data centres are directly connected by multiple links with Telehouse North and East coming from different Telcos. This is backed up by a dual fibre ring encompassing Telehouse and Redbus.
In every regional Point of Presence (POP), we include Cisco hardware to provide a continuous unaffected service; this means we can continue even if there a total loss of a router and/or circuit.
Our suppliers include AboveNet, Global Crossing, Level 3 and Cogent. Each and every one of these suppliers has been selected for their global reach and reliability.
This monitoring provides our engineers with early warning alert signals via email, SMS and web interfaces ensuring we have professional on hand expertise 24 hours a day.
Reliable peering strategy combined with state-of-the-art Cisco hardware, ensuring a network with no single point of failure. We also have peering arrangements in place with LINXP, LONAPP, LIPEX and IX Manchester.
For additional resilience each POP has a redundant UPS system and two independent UPS's feeding the equipment. So should either UPS fail your connectivity will not be affected. Each POP also has emergency generator backup so we are guaranteed never to suffer a power outage.
This allows bursts in traffic and network spikes to take place with no effect on our clients, so you are always equipped to handle increased visitors.
Your solution is only ever housed in our government and ISO-certified, ultra-secure data centres managed by security cleared personnel. And as an exclusively UK-based company, hosting with UKFast offers guaranteed data sovereignty. UKFast is a government approved supplier through the G-Cloud 10 framework.
