    Hardware and Server
    Our cloud utilizes the latest technology from the best brands. Each hypervisor node runs on a six-core Intel Xeon Processor E5645 server connected to our storage area networks (SAN) clustered in active/passive configuration, ensuring no slowdowns in the event of a failover. Our SANs utilize solid state disk (SSD) drives and SATA2 drives configured in RAID-10 to improve performance. Each SAN also has redundant power sources for further increased uptime.

    Technology and Software
    Controlling our entire cloud platform is OnApp that allows our cloud to have enterprise-class resilience, multi-layered security, a self-healing architecture and automatic hypervisor failover. Constantly monitoring the status of our network, OnApp features an extremely valuable automatic failover process if a hypervisor becomes unavailable. Failover is initiated within 15 seconds if OnApp doesn't receive a response from a hypervisor, and the virtual machines it hosts are automatically migrated to another suitable hypervisor in our cloud network.
