Cirrus Tech's network has been engineered from the ground up to accommodate the high-availability demands of the internet's most popular websites. Operating via private peering connections and public Network Access Points, our expansive, redundant network was designed to offer a forward-thinking alternative to the existing network options. We utilize multiple major upstream providers to ensure continuous Internet connectivity, greater route diversity, and ultimately, enhanced Internet performance. This strategic combination allows customer traffic to be routed over the best available connections.
Cirrus Tech is benefiting from various internet bandwidth and connectivity providers. Our major provider is at the moment Cogent Co., a Tier one bandwidth provider.
Cogent's end-to-end optical network consists of multiple metropolitan IP-over-WDM fiber rings located in Cogent's major markets throughout the United States and Europe. Cogent currently has a presence in over 85 markets throughout North America and Europe. Cogent's network provides each building or data center with up to 5 Gbit/s of dedicated bandwidth. Layer 3 edge routers in each building are connected to Cisco Layer 3 Terabit core routers over two diverse optical paths. These core routers are tied together via an international backbone network consisting of multiple 10 Gbit/s DWDM optical links. With a currently implemented capacity of 80 Gbit/s in the United States and 40 Gbit/s in Europe, Cogent's international IP network is the largest in the world and is scalable to a total capacity of over one Terabit.

Bandwidth Utilization: Cirrus Tech's Network currently has plenty of excess capacity, even during peak hours. This allows us to accommodate even the largest spikes in traffic that are often associated with the most popular websites. We are always adding network connectivity and new routes in an effort to make sure content is delivered to your users as efficiently as possible. The low bandwidth utilization also allows for maximum uptime, even if one of our providers has an outage. This is just another reason to outsource your dedicated server to Cirrus Tech.
Network and Data Center:
Cirrus Tech employs 2 Data Centers for its web hosting and hosted exchange operations. Our primary Data Center is located at 151 Front St. in Downtown Toronto, and a secondary data center is located in central Toronto.
Cirrus Tech is taking advantage of industry leading local fiber optics networks which offer virtually unlimited data transfer capacity with the lowest latency. This has enabled us to connect to Tier 1 internet bandwidth providers on the same infrastructure. The whole network is being monitored by 24x7 on site engineers and in case of connectivity failures backup loops will deliver the data seamlessly.
Our Data Centers are protected by uninterruptible backup batteries and industry standard diesel generators which will provide required power for about 7-10 days in case of disasters.
