Built for Ultimate High-Speed Performance, Reliability and Stability!

High Speed - 3 Internet Backbone Connections

The Linux Web Host NOC, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is OnNet with GlobalCenter (GC), Qwest Communications and GTE through three separate bandwidth-on-demand connections that enter Baltimore in our building. Linux Web Host is directly linked to the Internet by independent cables connected to all of our carriers' points of presence. Whatever your bandwidth needs, Linux Web Host has the capacity and scalability to meet them.

Global Center (GC), a Tier 1 provider, has a 13,000-mile fiber optic network that uses Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology. This platform provides an enormous 460 gigabytes per second (Gbps) of capacity worldwide, has an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) fiber node located just a few floors below the Linux Web Host NOC.

Qwest Communications comes into Baltimore with an OC-12 line and has an ATM fiber node just floors below the Linux Web Host NOC. Our Qwest connection enables Linux Web Host to offer additional redundancy and better routes to Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Genuity, a division of GTE, provides excellent network performance as a result of high-speed peering arrangements with other Tier One Internet backbone providers. The GTE global network delivers customers directly onto the Internet via a high-speed connection to its private, super-capacity backbone, including 17,000 miles of fiber and OC192 capacity. It is comprised of more than 800 U.S. local access points and approximately 1,500 international local access points in more than 150 countries.


"Industry analysis reveals that 70% of downtime of over 10 hours with any ISP is caused by telephone circuit failure."

There are no telephony circuits between Linux Web Host and our Tier 1 providers, just a direct connection between our Cisco routers and our Tier 1 provider routers. Linux Web Host has eliminated the potential for telephony circuit failure. Linux Web Host's Tier 1 providers also have peering connections with other major Tier 1 providers that allow traffic to be switched to alternate backbones should the need arise.

Raised Flooring

Linux Web Host's Network Operations Center (NOC) features raised flooring. This enables a constant flow of conditioned air and helps to maintain uniform room temperature at all times. In addition, raised flooring reduces static and ensures a professional, computer-grade environment for Linux servers.

Fire Suppression

The facility is equipped with a Raytheon fire suppression system, designed to immediately extinguish fire and protect equipment and personnel.

Secured, 24/7 Monitored Facility

The NOC is located in a secure, monitored, class A building. Restricted access is enforced with a detailed record of employee and visitor entry is maintained at all times. The command center is controlled via automatic doors to further secure and protect the equipment.

Uninterruptible Power System

Linux Web Host has two industrial-grade, three-phase Liebert UPS systems. These UPS units protect against power surges and ensure our network, and Linux website will stay up and running indefinitely without relying on external power.

Industrial-Grade Air Conditioners

Linux Web Host's NOC has two Liebert 10 ton industrial air conditioners that condition our computer rooms and operations center. Air temperature is maintained at an optimal 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Linux Web Host NOC also includes:

  • Force Filtered Cooling
  • Hot Swap Drives
  • Redundant Hot Swap Power Supplies
  • Standby Servers
