How reliable is Site Manager CMS?
The data center that hosts Site Manager CMS is located in a Tier 4 data center facility, and the servers have:
- Multiple cooling and power distribution paths for stability
- Multiple active power distribution paths to help prevent down time from blackouts
- Redundant components for fault tolerance
- High connectivity and power into the machines
All of the data center facilities are connected to the Internet via Tier 1 networks, or have peering arrangements with Tier 1 networks. This means that the servers are essentially hooked in to the "backbone" of the Internet, which generally results in higher network speeds and lower latency from your customer's browser to the servers. ONDABOX uses reasonable efforts to make the services available 24x7.
Where is your data center located?
Our primary center is located at the edge of downtown Dallas, Texas on one of the most fiber rich routes in the city. The fully-equipped, 28,000 square foot facility is staffed around the clock. With uncompromising standards for security, power supply and environmental controls, we focus on connectivity, redundancy and resilience.
We also partner with other distributed cloud-based networks such as Amazon S3.
What about data management? Does Site Manager CMS provide backups?
We have a highly fault-tolerant server configuration in our data center. All servers also have regular full and differential backups. However, it is important to note that recovery procedures cannot be initiated for individual file backups, as they are intended to perform "full recovery" of the servers in the event of a hardware or software failure only. At an individual site level, we provide several backup options for customers. You can retrieve backup copies of your web pages as often as you see fit using Content Manager.
Are your services (development, design or management) available to contract out?
