Remember Me


1Host 's GOLD NETWORK features gigabit links to the following tier one providers Telia, Savvis, Global Crossing, PCCWBTN, Sprint, Qwest and AIX peering, which is publicly peered with 12 providers including Earthlink. All of our servers are connected via a dedicated 100mbps line. We believe in a few large pipes of quality providers to handle spikes in traffic as well as unknown traffic patterns in the case of a primary link failure. This is why our network minimum Internet backbone connection consists of 1 gig pipes. Our servers will not get bottlenecks due to small pipes!

  • 99.999% Reliability
  • 4 Main State of the art UPS Systems
  • 2 Generators with in ground 5000 gallon fuel tanks to ensure power if there is an outage. 1.5 megawatt and 800 KVA
  • Connected to the most reliable power grid in the state of Georgia through quad vaults on 4 feeds - this protects the main hospital in Atlanta so it is on a last outage program as critical services and was extensively upgraded for the Olympics. We have not had to use our generators in 5 years.
  • 8 22 ton Redundant Liebert Air systems providing consistent temperature and humidity range in the datacenter
  • State of the art datacenter ID system and security including video surveillance and recording. All entrances to the Data Center include biometric scanning in combination with card key to prevent unauthorized access.
  • FM200 Fire suppression and active monitoring with VESDA early smoke detection.
  • Redundant Cisco BGP routing and switching infrastructure with cold spares on site allows for equipment failure with no interruption of service and timely replacement of the failed item. 10 Gig Metro Ethernet ring for the core routing with dual feeds of all aggregation routers ensures 100% uptime with some of the best uptime in the business.
  • State of the art Avaya ANS BGP management system optimizing the routes on the 6 gig network in real time 7000 times per minute based on traceroute performance to ensure that your servers have the highest performance routing vs a simple bgp configuration.
  • State of the art monitoring system for all servers and network devices with instant failure notification.

Data Center

1Host proudly uses AtlantaNAP, a premier, carrier neutral data center, located in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally built in 1964 as the A&P meat warehouse, the facility is built rock solid with massive steel beam frame and rebar reinforced 4 inch poured concrete roofs and no windows. The exterior is well maintained and solid brick on block construction. AtlantaNAP sits on one of AGL's main fiber backbones and operates a metro Ethernet ring based on Extreme Networks 10 Gig technology. It has Sonet-like EAPS implementation for sub 50 ms re-route times, utilizing Ethernet for efficient and affordable equipment connectivity. AtlantaNAP is equipped with multiple power generators on a redundant grid with two separate feeds into the building. This provides our customers with the best possible uptime available.

Security starts from the moment you enter the building with 10 foot high razor wire fences surrounding the 4 acre property, all of which is covered by security lights and cameras. All footage from the cameras is stored on a specially built security server with redundant storage. Entrance through the main gate requires a keycard or manual access granted by our onsite security guards and happens through an electric gate for customers' convenience. The front door is again protected by a key card reader. After entering the gate, there are three locked/key carded doors protecting the datacenter and a biometric hand scanner authentication.


The Atlanta NAP is one of the few facilities able to support even your most power dense applications. Power is dual fed from the grid and protected though our redundant paralleled power system, configured with an additional full wrap-around bypass for extra redundancy (we are able to take the system offline for any type of internal maintenance without dropping power to the facility). The UPS system is backed up by a state of the art parallel generator system with multiple generators running in N+1 format. These are computer controlled and automated. The generators have 150 gallon day tanks fed from redundant pumps from our 12,000 gallon reserve tank. The system is powered by state of the art? Cummins turbocharged generators and digital fuel management system by Simplex and Veeder-Root.

Cooling Systems

The Atlanta NAP currently has 1000 tons of cooling piped into its 50,000 sq. foot datacenter. With pre planned capacity of over 2000 tons, cooling will never be an issue. Each bank of cooling towers utilizes state of the art energy management technology. As with all core system, the cooling towers are N+1, fed by redundant N+1 pumps. The Atlanta NAP also has a 30,000 gallon reserve water tank in case the city water supply ever fails.

Building Management

The Atlanta NAP is monitored at over 450 points by a state-of-the art digital building management system. Staff can log in securely from any location and check on all systems. The datacenter floor itself is equipped with temperature sensors in strategic locations that constantly monitor conditions in the facility and make adjustments. Alarms and out-of-tolerance conditions send an e-mail alert directly to management's PDAs. The system controls water flow through pump speeds and air flow to the cooling tower through fan speeds. This saves energy and ensures that the system is operating at its peak performance 24x7. The system also monitors and logs all electrical activity within the facility and sends notifications of events.

Fire Protection

The Atlanta NAP uses a state-of-the-art dual interlock dry pipe fire suppression system. High-tech smoke detectors signal the pipes to switch from compressed air (so Atlanta NAP staff are instantly alerted of leaks) to water. Then if a sprinkler head is set off by an actual fire, water is deployed to the affected zone only. The system is monitored through the building management system. The floors are all equipped with floor drains on 20 foot centers that drain the building in case of system activation.
