Facilities and Services
NaturallyCool members ensure multiple supply sources of bandwidth provide a "failsafe" bandwidth environment. Multiple bandwidth supplies are fed into the network in a triangulated, resilient, form where the NaturallyCool members' infrastructure ensures that, in the event of a failure of one or more of the supplies, there remains a continuous supply of bandwidth to all their customers.
From hosting and managed services to an exceptional location for your servers, 100% business uptime ensures your business can operate with confidence 24*7. In addition, many of the alliance members have back to back arrangements to guarantee maximum security and resilience.
NaturallyCool members offer optimum flexibility, from cloud services to managing high end clustered data base solutions that enable you to scale your IT requirements to meet business demands - for seasonal peaks or to experiment with new products and solutions.
The network backbone for all our members is composed of high-end routers and switches from Cisco, Juniper, Foundry and FS. networks are fully switched and redundant to provide for connectivity free of collisions and packet loss. As you would expect all our members have dual power supplies to keep them up and running in case of equipment failure.
