RAAMweb is a Domain, Hosting and Web Design provider, based in the United Kingdom. Our aim is to provide solid, reliable web hosting at low costs, so that professional solutions become available to a wider range of web users.
Our state of the art data centre provides our customers with the speed, reliability and uptime they require. With the latest server technology and several backbone connections, we ensure that your site will be available as much as possible. Our data centre is manned 24/7 and is in a secure location. Backups are taken daily and stored in a safe location away from the building. On-site security prevents any unauthorized accesses to our data centre and its facilities.
Our data centre is growing all the time and allows us to provide for our customers with speed, efficiency and ease. Our data centre is what allows us to offer such a powerful service and stand out from the rest.
Our Web Servers
We also use state-of-the-art web servers, utilising the latest technology. Our fine tuned customised servers mean we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none. Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that servers workload. For example if one of our mail servers were to fail, another server would automatically come online, with the correct configuration and take over the work of the failed server. In this period no emails would be lost. As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays, data is automatically synchronized between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime.
Our current shared server specification is:-
* Dual Intel Xeon Processor 3.6GHz with 4MB Cache
* 4 GB SDRAM
* Dual 36 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
* RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
* Dual Power Supplies
* Dual Gigabit Network Adapters
100% Cisco Gigabit Network
RAAMweb's network operates on industry leading network equipment from Cisco Systems, all our switches and routers are developed by Cisco. Our network is based on gigabit technology which means that it runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second; most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second. Our network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable, CAT6 cable contains four pairs of copper wire and unlike CAT5, utilises all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.
Redhat Enterprise Linux Platform
Redhat is the leading provider of Linux open source software, for many years now Redhat Linux has been the number one choice for web hosting companies, not just because of Redhat’s amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today. Our systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology to allow our servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system and security patches. Unlike many of our competitors we run Redhat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that stays totally up to date with security patches.
