Multiple Upstream Providers
With multiple different upstream providers including Level 3, Bell Canada, NTT, Hurricane Electric and Tiscali, Gossamer Host's network can switch between providers to optimize speed and maintain connectivity should any of the providers' backbones fail. Active 24/7 manipulation of routing tables ensures that traffic to our clients’ sites uses the best possible upstream link available.
The Internet is running out of available IPs, and Gossamer is ready for the transition. Our backbone is fully IPv6 capable now, and can run either native or dual stacked.
Diverse Fibre Paths
We maintain diverse fibre paths out of all our facilities, so should we experience a fibre cut due to construction or natural disaster, traffic will fail over seamlessly to the other path.
Cisco powered network
We use a cisco powered network with complete physical redundancy in the distribution and edge layers.
We maintain active agreements with our upstream providers for DDOS mitigation. Should your site come under a distributed denial of service attack, we can help mitigate the effects and resume service quickly.
