Who we are, what we do, our breif history...
Evohosting uses BlueSquare data centre in Maidenhead, Berkshire to host our UK customers. BlueSquare operates multiple carrier neutral data centres in the UK and is one of only a few data centres completely independent of London. Our transit is provided by BlueConnex, BlueSquare’s own transit provider. BlueSquare is located just five minutes from Evohosting’s office on King Street in Maidenhead town centre.
BlueConnex operates a fully redundant BGP network consisting of two separate hardware vendors, thus providing redundancy on the network level AND the hardware level.
They operate two separate 10Gigabit networks, from both Extreme Networks and Foundry Networks at all locations. On top of this layer 2 network, they operate two independent IP Transit networks (AS29550 and AS34920) which run from multiple Cisco Systems 7606-S RSP720 and 6509 SUP720 routers at multiple London facilities, offering true redundancy to each customer.
Connecting with multiple Tier 1 providers, as well the London Internet Exchange (LINX), BlueConnex is the only provider able to offer IP services
diverse of London.
Our Dell Servers
We use Dell hardware exclusively for our web hosting platforms; currently, we are using Dell 2950 2U servers. Dell 2950 2U servers have dual quad core Intel Xeon processors and 8GB of RAM. All of Evohosting’s servers are equipped with RAID 5 arrays for data protection. Our RAID 5 arrays are made up of four 500GB hard drives which are then partitioned; they also have dual power supplies for extra fault tolerance.
We run CentOS and cPanel, the industry’s leading software, on all our hosting servers, providing you with an incredibly powerful control centre for your entire website.
We recycle our Dell servers when they come out of warranty (usually every 3 years): the harddisks are destroyed, and the rest of the server is sold off or recycled. You can rest assured that Evohosting will use only the latest equipment to host your website.
