Colocation Hosting in Multiple Sites


As an Applied Media client, you will enjoy the benefits of the most reliable and state-of-the-art data centers in the world.

Our hosting services are completely optional with your website package, but they are highly recommended. Here's why: Unlike other hosting services, Applied Media through our superb partner Total Choice Hosting LLC of Troy, Michigan, colocate our servers in multiple, geographically diverse data centers. Why do we spend so much time and energy on this? Well, let us just say we do not like to have all our eggs in one basket.

Colocation facilities have the following advantages not found in most commercial offices:

  • Multiple & redundant links to the Internet.

  • Backup power supplies & generators

  • Climate controlled air conditioning

  • Electronic security systems

  • 24 hour a day hardware and network technicians on site


Benefits of Colocation
Colocation provides a very cost-effective means of accessing a secure hosting environment. By saving time and money, we are able to return the savings to our clients, while still providing:

  • High speed connections via multiple carriers to prevent downtime

  • Guaranteed power supply incorporating battery UPS for short term combined with an onsite diesel generator and sub-station for extended outages

  • Deployment of new machines within 24 hours which can be easily expanded as required

  • On site hardware technicians available 24 hours per day

  • Colocation facilities that use electronic access security & security guards to protect the equipment

  • Cost reductions

24 Hour Monitoring

Applied Media understands and appreciates the absolute importance of reliable, fast and secure web hosting.

While our partner data centers provide 24/7 monitoring of all of our servers, Applied Media maintains its own administrative operations to provide an additional layer of monitoring, support and services.

In addition, our primary hosting partner provides around-the-clock monitoring of all hardware, including routers, switches, UPS systems, and servers at all four of the data centers. In brief, this comprises:

  • Monitoring of all critical services/ports, including FTP, HTTP, SMTP, HTTPS, TELNET, CPANEL and POP3.

  • Routine network monitoring of the local area network, Internet connectivity (all routers, switches, and wiring), and the Internet backbone via MRTG and our custom tailored software.

  • Close and constant communication with our data center providers to ensure that our customers have constant access to high-performance Internet connections 24/7.

  • An instant paging system to alert our staff to a failure on any monitoring service. This is supplemented by audible alarms and LAN messages.
