As a California web hosting provider, Globat primary equipment is housed in the main Data Center, Equinix, located in downtown Los Angeles, California and is the same one used by Google, Yahoo and IBM. Their Tier-1 providers include Level (3), Verio and Mzima Networks and operate over private peering networks to avoid overcrowded public exchanges. They also maintain a presence at a second Data Center in Marina del Rey, California exclusively for secondary DNS and email server backup. This facility uses AT&T; and Time/Warner for connectivity.
Globat’s new B2 hosting platform features the redundancy and backup found only at top-level, commercial Data Centers. B2 is capable of distributing various areas and functions of your website across multiple servers; each one manages a different application for optimum performance. Other hosting companies run numerous applications on one server, thus increasing the likelihood of failure.
Globat’s B2 system features Foundry Switches, Network Appliance Raid 4 Filers and on-line backup machines with additional disc drives, ensuring that even if one part of their hosting network goes down your website continues to operate without loss of any data.
