The HostSlim data center

Our modern tier 3 data centers use the latest technology to ensure high performance and availability. Everything is fully redundant, so your equipment is always online (even in the event of a power outage in the city). Below you will find some photos and more information about the HostSlim datacenter. If you are interested in a tour or have any questions, let us know!

Information

Redundant power supplies

Our data centers have N+2 power supplies. This means that each rack has its own A+B Feed (power supply) and that these are also redundant. These A and B Feeds each have 3 phases which in turn run redundantly to two UPS systems. In short, this means that in the event of a power failure or failure of one of the UPS systems, power is still supplied. So this is a “double redundancy”. We have chosen this to be able to guarantee our high-quality service to our customers.

Redundant fiber paths

HostSlim uses at least three geographically separated fiber paths. Our fiber paths run via different physical routes to our peering partners in Almere and Amsterdam.

Redundant routing processes

The HostSlim network uses redundant routing engines. This means that if a router fails in one of our locations, the other location will automatically take over the routes. This provides extra redundancy for our customers.

24x7 support

As you know, something can always happen outside office hours. At HostSlim you can contact our 24x7 NOC directly in case of problems via telephone, ticket system or live chat. Our employees are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

24x7 remote hands

If you need urgent help in one of our data centers, this is no problem. HostSlim engineers are trained in maintaining servers and network equipment. Our engineers are also available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week in the event of calamities. Think, for example, of replacing physical hardware or establishing connections, or installing or debugging servers.
