Only the fastest possible connection is good enough for your professional projects. That's why, at serverloft, our highest priority is providing you with the fastest and most reliable data transmission around the clock. All serverloft servers are connected directly to PlusServer AG's worldwide 550 Gbit/s high-speed backbone. Our backbone offers direct connections to the most important providers and largest European exchanges - such as the DE-CIX in Frankfurt.
The entire backbone is designed for multiple ring topology redundancy. Thus we can guarantee high-availability of all servers and an average monthly network availability of at least 99.9%
The IP network of our mother company, PlusServer, is routed as autonomous system (AS) 8972. AS 8972 combines all of PlusServer's national and international backbone connections. The IP network is based on an optical transmission network capable - due to the use of advanced technology - of providing transmission capacities of several Terabit per second.
Connection to key IXPs (Internet Exchange Points) in Europe, Asia, and America enables PlusServer AG to operate public peerings with all the major IP carriers, ISPs and content providers, and a number of private peering points.
The servers in the serverloft data center are connected to the Internet via a 100 Mbit/s switch port.
Our state-of-the-art US data center is located in St. Louis, Missouri, centrally located in the heartland of America. Multiple 10Gbit/s connections always ensure a reliable and fast path in any direction. Our aggregated link capacity guarantees the best and fastest data transmissions, even if one or more connections should become unavailable. We monitor our network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which is how we can achieve a network availability of at least 99.9%.
Cogent operates a global 10 Gbit/s (OC-192), seamless, redundant IP backbone. The company has successfully created an international fiber optical communications network connecting Europe and the United States. The result is a permanently extendable network with performance orientated, scalable peering-connections establishing free connection between the world's largest backbone networks. The average latency period is 40 milliseconds or less in all regions with less than one percent packet loss.
