A redundant infrastructure, 5 data centers and a 10 Gb/s network to meet even the most exacting requirements.
The core of each of our data centers consists in a pair of Cisco C7604/sup 720-3BXL devices. These are coupled to 2 other Cisco routers which manage all incoming traffic from, and outgoing traffic to, our IP transit providers (Tata, Level3, Neo Telecom, SFR).
A cluster of new-generation load balancers (A10 networks) delivers a total distribution capacity of several millions of connections per second (layer 4).
In addition, we have an out-of-band management infrastructure giving access to all of our network devices in the event of the main network failing.
Each of our bays comprises:
2 Cisco 2960G switches, connected redundantly to our network core devices.
2 independent electric feeds.
An OOB switch, which interconnects the ILO/DRAC ports to each of our servers in the event of a failure.
2 electrical switches controlled remotely; these are used in the case of a last-resort electrical restart.
And At least one bay in each data center is dedicated to our NetApp SAN/NAS infrastructures.
Our critical volumes are synchronized on several data centers by means of a dedicated optical fiber which interconnects the SAN/NAS heads
Each of the components of our infrastructure is designed to maximize the availability of our services.
Dans chaque datacenter
At least 2 Internet Transit providers
At least 2 Cisco C7604/Sup720-3BXL L3 Switches
At least 2 backbone routers
At least 2 Load Balancers
At least 2 Cisco switches in each bay.
At least 2 redundant electrical supplies (STS) per bay.
The security of our BGP4/OSPR network, multi-homed and redundant (i.e., failure-proof).
By calling on the service of 3 international forwarders, we can firstly, loadbalance our traffic; second, be sure of complete redundancy (i.e. protection in case of failure) and third, rapidly anticipate any saturation of our links. We have signed a number of partnerships with several French ISPs; in this way, we are sure to have top-drawer network quality.
An optical fiber loop (redundancy achieved by using several data centers) provides us with a capacity of several gigabytes per second. This loop is connected to our Cisco routers, present in several data centers. And, since no link of our network is used in excess of 50% of its capacity, you can be sure of getting optimal response times.
Each device making up the network (router, switch, optical transmitter, etc.) is also redundant (i.e. the same device is present twice) to provide protection in the event of failure. The bandwidth which we provide to our clients is dedicated and guaranteed, with unlimited traffic.
Our network core
100% Cisco devices (most recent generation).
Mixing capacity in excess of 40 GB per second.
Device redundancy on three levels (double optic cabling, Ether channel L2, OSPF dynamic routing, VRRP/HSRP Virtual Gateway).
Private operator-to-operator links.
Fail-over routers ready to take over in the event of a particular incident (no service interruption).
We set up a dedicated VLAN for all clients to whom we provide Outsourced IT Management services. Alternatively, our clients can specifically request a dedicated VLAN. The advantages of a dedicated VLAN are firstly, partitioning, and secondly, maximum data security. To these VLANs, we can associate address ranges from 8 to several hundred public IP addresses.
Magic Online has several private rooms, essentially in the following two data centers:
EQX : Equinix Paris 2
IX1 : Interxion Paris 1
In addition, we work with several secondary sites whose main role is to ensure the interconnection between the xDSL network and the Optical fiber (SFR NetCenter, TH1, TH2)
We believe that is important to have an infrastructure which is completely redundant and distributed; in this way, we are sure that the levels of performance and availability for our client’s service are impeccable.
Thanks to our peering agreements, your traffic will take the shortest path to your clients; as a result, the routing time for your packets is reduced, and the overall experience of your users are is enhanced (see network infrastructure).
Each single function rendered by our devices is backed up locally, and has a double on a secondary site, to ensure complete availability.
Disaster Recovery Plan
In the case of an extreme event (fire, natural disaster, complete electrical failure), your clients can be re-routed to a secondary site. To this end, we have selected a number of “Tiers One” data centers, where we have fully secure, private areas.
Security of physical infrastructures
• The data center is supervised and monitored from the on-site control room (24/7/365).
• A management system monitors the infrastructure, including the electric power, temperature, humidity, anti-fire protection and site security.
• Client operations are managed from the control room: assistance services, device monitoring, cable management.
• Air-conditioning and purification with a minimal excess capacity of 120%.
• Inbuilt redundancy (level N+1).
• Multi-compressor units, multi-circuit units, multi-pump units.
• Thermoregulation and hygrometric regulation by means of redundant production units.
• Guaranteed temperature of 22°C (+/-4) and a relative humidity of 48% (+/-15%).
• “Warm aisle/Cold aisle” air-conditioning, optimized air circulation.
Security of the Data Centers
• Strictly controlled access with permanent security personnel (24/7/365).
• Complete site coverage (up to external fence).
• Multiple access points: RFID cards, palm scanners, color CCTV.
• Automatic link to police station in the case of intrusion.
• Security personnel compliant with the ISO9001 standard./div>
