The UKFast multi-100Gb network includes multi-homing to provide the definitive optimised conditions for dedicated server 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 data centres located in multiple locations throughout the UK and connected to multiple transit and peering connections, we can guarantee 100% network uptime, high-performance and security.
To guarantee high bandwidth and low latency connectivity within the UKFast network, our data centres are directly connected by multiple, diverse 100Gbps fibre links to form a resilient ring around Manchester and London.
In every regional Point of Presence (POP), we include the latest hardware to provide a continuous unaffected service. This means that network traffic will continue to pass through the UKFast network even if there is a total loss of a router and/or circuit.
Core equipment and services on the UKFast network continually run below 50% capacity to ensure that, in the event of network spikes, there will be no effect on our clients. Your solutions is always equipped to handle an influx of visitors.
Around-the-clock monitoring of network routes, circuits and power supply provides our engineers with early warning alert signals via email, SMS and web interfaces, ensuring we have professional expertise to hand 24 hours a day.
In conjunction with the multiple transit providers utilised to provide internet connectivity, the UKFast network has points of presence on a number of Internet Exchanges (IX), including LINX LON1 and LINX Manchester. This further adds to the resilience of the UKFast network.
For additional resilience, each POP has a redundant UPS system and two independent UPSs feeding the equipment. If any of your UPSs fail, your connectivity will not be affected. Each POP also has an emergency backup generator, meaning we never suffer a power outage.
Our transit suppliers include Zayo, Cogent, TATA and NTT. Each provide 100Gbps transit points for internet connectivity. Each and every one of these suppliers has been selected for their global presence and reliability to ensure our clients' solutions are always available.
The UKFast network has a combined total internet connectivity of more than 1Tbps. This, combined with the Global DDoSX® platform, provides 1.7Tbps of global internet connectivity for UKFast clients. This ensures the UKFast network is geared up for increased demand in the future as our clients’ organisations continue to grow.
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 12 framework.
