datacenter provides Tier 1 bandwidth
providers, SBC and Allegiance, built on
a Cisco powered network.
Every Enterprise Digital account will be
connected to a 100% Cisco Powered
Network. Using enterprise-class Cisco
networking gear, all routers, layer-2
switches, and layer-3 switches are
tested in labs prior to deployment to
ensure stability and interoperability.
High Bandwidth Connectivity
Using multiple Tier 1 Service Providers
ensures the highest degree of
against network downtime and the fastest
possible data transfers.
It is a common misconception that the
amounts of bandwidth (size of the pipes
that carry the data) differentiate web
hosting companies. In reality it is not
only the size of the pipes that matters,
it is the utilization levels. The
utilization of our Internet connections
is vital to a
network's ability to transfer data
without packet loss or latency.
Enterprise Digital aims to keep all
connection usage below 50% to avoid any
Enterprise Digital's new datacenter runs
the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) for
best case routing. The BGP4 protocol is
a standard that allows for the routing
of packets of information sent out from
our network. Each packet of information
is evaluated and sent over the best
route possible. Because of our redundant
network architecture, packets may be
sent via alternative routes even if they
are being delivered to the same end
user. Should one of our providers fail,
packets leaving our network are
automatically redirected through another
route via a different provider.
The Enterprise Digital network is a
fully switched network. Traffic
for a website hosted on a server is sent
only through switching equipment
necessary to deliver the information to
that server. This minimizes the risk of
someone sniffing or capturing traffic
being sent across the network.
data center, located in San Antonio,
Texas, has been built from the ground up
and equipped with various powerful
connections to multiple carriers to
ensure uptime and speed consistency and
Our facility is a carrier-neutral site
and is built completely on
computer-grade raised flooring; it is

redundant fibre entry points.
The data center's HVAC (Heating
Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is
N+1 redundant. With full particle
filtering and humidity control, the
environment is maintained at a cool 68
degrees to ensure a comfortable
environment for our servers.
Enterprise Digital's new datacenter is
not reliant upon the local power grid to
guarantee maximum uptime. Our on-site,
auto-switched power generator and
centralized UPS systems provide power
conditioning and ensure uninterrupted
data center operation. Additionally, the
generator is regularly tested to ensure
that it will continue to function in the
event of an emergency.
The datacenter is physically isolated
from everyone but level three
technicians. Public access is strictly
forbidden. Access to the floor the
datacenter resides on is restricted and
completely locked down.
San Antonio, Texas is known for the
absence of natural disasters and is on
the most seismically stable soil in the
US. Additionally, since San Antonio is
free from natural disasters, the
datacenter is in the perfect location.
