Data Center And Hosting Services

The PerfOpt Data Center, in Phoenix, Arizona, is collocated in a state-of-the-art Tier-3 Network Operation Center (NOC) which has over 380,000 square feet of datacenter space. The region was specially selected because it is considered one of the disaster-free zones in the entire world. The building itself is constructed of concrete walls, floors, and ceilings further assuring your systems are free from any physical harm. By combining these things with our technological features and exceptional support, we have created one of the premier hosting environments in the industry today.

Disaster Recovery and Prevention

PerfOpt has designed and deployed the disaster recovery management using industry best practices. We have implemented a four-tier backup strategy which ensures data recovery with a minimum Recovery Time Objective (RTO). The hard drives are mirrored for redundancy. We take a complete snapshot image of all our servers every week and perform incremental backup daily.

One of the most important preventive measures is our security and monitoring system. The servers have secured access and are continuously monitored for any software and hardware failures. The system software is patched and is kept up-to-date from any security vulnerabilities. Our data center has controlled access using retina scan and is equipped with remote monitoring and surveillance systems.
