Reliable and Powerful Hosting
ShopDirect servers reside at the Internet Solutions Data Centre in Johannesburg. Our team of expert server administrators are dedicated to working in conjunction with Internet Solutions to ensure the safety, speed and power of your hosting package so that you're ready to sell online 24/7.
Round the Clock Monitoring
We use a web-based solution to monitor the performance of your web store. Critical elements such as the number of current connections to your IIS Web Server, the amount of time it takes to process a DNS name and IP address lookups to the per- second number of transactions started for your MS SQL database are all monitored to ensure that speed and accessibility are maintained to the highest degree. We provide availability and performance monitoring across your entire network - without all the headaches associated with deploying and integrating your own management services. To ensure the most accurate reporting possible, all ShopDirect monitoring is conducted locally from within our firewall, while all the number crunching is done remotely to prevent any additional load or security hazards on the system
Restricted Data Floor Access
Access to the data centre floors is restricted to those holding military-grade passcards. It's not just inside this data centre, it's inside a vault inside the data centre Furthermore, access to the data centres themselves is restricted by Biometric hand scanners. Basically what we’re trying to tell you is that if there’s a place where your information will remain secure and confidential, this is it!
Multiple Power Source Backups
The power systems at the Internet Solutions Data Centres are designed to run uninterrupted even in the unlikely event of a total power outage. All servers are fed with conditioned UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) power that will run even if utility power fails. The UPS power subsystem is N+1 redundant with instantaneous fail-over in case the primary UPS fails. In the event of an extended power outage, two on-site diesel generators will run indefinitely. These generators are regularly tested to ensure that they continues to function in the event of an emergency.
Guaranteed 99.8% Uptime
Internet Solutions guarantees that the network will be available 99.8% of the time in a given month - excluding scheduled maintenance.
