Hivelocity, a dedicated server, private cloud and infrastructure service provider to customers in over 130 countries, has further enhanced its network this week by adding Telia Italia Sparkle transit to its network.  The addition of Telia Italia Sparkle, also known as LANautilus or Seabone, takes Hivelocity’s network to nine total providers. 

With a large and growing customer base in South and Central America, Telia Italia Sparkle’s prolific presence throughout Latin America was a major draw for Hivelocity.   Sparkle ranks 9th on the Dyn Baker’s Dozen list which ranks the top 13 performing fiber networks around the world.  The Hivelocity network now comprises 9 total providers including; Level 3, Time Warner Telecom, Global Crossing, XO, Cogent, GTT, Comcast, NTT and Telia Italia Sparkle, 7 of which made the top 13 list last year.  

“Our goal when we select any new provider or any new peering location is to choose the best option that is going to provide the most benefit to our customers.  With customers in every corner of the planet having a diverse and global reaching network is essential.  Having Telia Sparkle on our network is going to have a huge positive impact on our customers throughout Brazil, Columbia and Latin America as a whole. We were seeing a huge surge in customer growth in these markets without Telia Sparkle so this addition should only accelerate that growth. ,” says Hivelocity Senior Network Engineer, Dan Protich. 

Hivelocity is a privately held company that owns and operates it own data center where it provides managed services coupled with bare-metal servers, private cloud and IaaS. Hivelocity plans to announce the grand opening of a 2nd data center in the near future.  Details of this new facility’s size and location are still under wraps.

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
