What about your Network?

planet-data-center-server-row.jpg

What about it? Would you know the difference between T1 and T3? (the answer is 2).

You want Seven Sages to manage your site so you don't have to know all that mumbo-jumbo tech stuff. We don't even know all that tech stuff. We lets experts handle that for us. We are no different from you. We have a business to run, so we let the geeks take care of the tech stuff.

But wait, aren't we the geeks? Yes, and No.

We manage the servers and the software, but we have super-geeks take care of our hardware/networking needs.

As of 2011, ThePlanet was acquired by SoftLayer. Same top-notch, secure data centers, more locations globally.

  3. Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is N+1 redundant with instant failover coverage should the primary UPS fail.
  4. HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems are N+1 redundant to ensure there is a duplicate system ready to assume the load if the primary system fails.
  5. Advanced fire suppression systems keep any fires localized and prevent them from spreading.
