Colocation with DataHive

DataHive's strategy is to provide the best possible solutions, services and support to help clients colocate their servers safely and securely. In the present-day business environment, every business, large or small must have the assurance their sensitive and important electronic information will not be jeopardized in any way.

For customers requiring their own private colocation space, DataHive provides private suites or caged colocation space built to specifications and size requirements.

The DataHive datacenter offers speeds up to 1 Gbps using redundant Juniper routers facilitating both IPv4 and IPv6. Shaw, Zayo and Hurricane Electric provide our BGP internet connectivity. As a carrier neutral datacenter, clients have the choice of over 30 ISPs. DataHive's fibre-based infrastructure consists of multiple diverse paths.

Clients are guaranteed plenty of excess dedicated Internet capacity, so clients never have to be concerned about bandwidth requirements. We guarantee a maximum average utilization of 70%. This means our metric for Internet line upgrades is to have 30% excess capacity during peak load times, regardless of how many high-speed lines already in use. DataHive addresses this as a core business policy.

DataHive's facility employs a redundant power system, including two UPS Bypass switches, generator, climate control, fire suppression and 24x7 video monitoring. Access to the facility is protected by mantrap doors and state-of-the-art biometrics, as well as digitally encrypted keys for cabinet access. Clients have full-time, online viewing of their bandwidth usage.

All services include 24x7 technical support. Clients are provided with phone numbers, email addresses and instant messenger information to contact support staff directly, day or night, seven days a week.
