Industry-leading 100% Uptime SLA
We Don’t Just Promise 100% Uptime, We Deliver It
We are proud to have our service backed by one of the industry’s strongest Service Level Agreement (SLA). Much more importantly, we actually deliver on what we promise – 100 percent uptime for our data centers and our network, including ultra-low latency and zero-packet loss: guaranteed and delivered (without a single claim on our network 100% uptime SLA since 2002).
One of the main reasons customers utilize our colocation services is to lower risk. From continuous monitored and archived video surveillance of every aisle and mantraps for security, to generators with days supply of fuel on site and UPS battery backup systems for continued operations even in case of a prolonged power outage, our data centers are designed to be secure, reliable, and a solid foundation that clients can build their IT infrastructure upon.
Each calculated component supports the overall aim for highly sustainable infrastructure. Redundancies such as diverse power feeds, high-capacity power load support, multiple uplinks, multiple UPS systems, N+1 AC units, and multiple diesel generators, assure a stable environment and the peace of mind that comes with no single-point-of-failure. Dual or triple entrances by multiple telecommunications providers, with fiber traversing in different directions and to different points, ensure full carrier and fiber path redundancy for the hopone.net IP backbone.
Energy-Efficient Data Centers
We are Continually Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Our data centers use less energy than the typical data center. We use the optimal temperature to run each facility the most efficiently, use some of the world’s most efficient AC units, and advocate the use of highly efficient server power supplies. We are focused on reducing our energy use while serving the explosive growth of the Internet. Most data centers use almost as much non-computing or “overhead” energy (mainly cooling and power conversion) as they do to power their servers. We’ve reduced this overhead significantly, and we are continually working to further optimize our facility power efficiency, without making any compromises on the environmental standards, redundancy or service levels. That way, most of the energy we use powers our customer equipment. We take detailed measurements and keep optimizing to continually push toward doing more with less — hosting more servers while using less energy.
Reliable, High Availability Data Centers
Reasons to Colocate Your IT Infrastructure With Us
Our data centers are purposefully built to an N+1 or 2N standard. This means that for every piece of critical infrastructure, we have at least one available online spare. Putting your infrastructure in a professional and purpose-built data center gives you a level of redundancy that is typically unattainable in smaller, lower grade data centers found in office buildings and on customer premises.
When it comes to data centers, the need for redundancy focuses on how much extra or spare power the facility can offer its customers during a power outage. Unexpected power outages are an overwhelming cause for other data center downtime. However, our customers are able to leverage our economies of scale and be assured of their full power load needs always being met. As a result, you receive a superior level of redundancy.

Rapidly Provisioned Interconnection
A Multitude of On-Site Carriers to Choose From
Businesses operate based on connections. They need to connect to the right carriers, have ready access to important resources, and use mission-critical applications every day. Interconnection is the core that enables communication to happen. This connection occurs in a Meet-Me-Room, which allows you to connect directly to the data and resources you need.
At each one of our data centers, in addition to the hopone.net coast-to-coast IP backbone, a multitude of carriers is present, some even with a major long-haul PoP on-site. Connecting to your carrier(s) of choice has never been easier: local cross-connects to carriers on-site, as well as to carriers off-site yet nearby, can be provisioned quickly and efficiently.
To get technical, interconnecting is made possible through the use of patch panels and cross connects that facilitate communications between equipment, services, and users. Each panel serves as a point from which you can cross connect with other tenants (such as the numerous telcos and carriers colocated at each of our data centers) All it takes is a simple order and we will connect to the tenant, network, or application you need. This forms a physical connection so you can easily and privately, securely exchange data.
In addition, we are an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect partner and can provide easy and streamlined direct, private connection to AWS and AWS GovCloud, both on a dedicated/private port/circuit, as well as a shared port/circuit, basis, in both US West and US East AWS and AWS GovCloud regions.
