Our Network Operations Facility
Situated on a veritable monolith floating on the earth’s crust, a geological phenomenon of igneous rock measuring several kilometers in surface dimension and 80 kilometers in depth, our facility offers a rock solid foundation for your data. This is a purpose built building exceeding the current National Building Code Standard, quite able to withstand winds up to 135 kph and earthquakes to 9.5 on the Richter scale. Situated 40 meters above sea level our facility has been described as the ‘Fort Knox’ of the north.
The facility was awarded the Department of National Defense contract as the emergency backup site for the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre, and houses the Federal Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Preparedness. The 24x7x365 security system provides bio-metric scanners, closed circuit television, key card egress and ingress and computer controlled vibration and motion monitoring for your peace of mind.

Server Load Balance
Final Host provides clients with cutting-edge hardware, software and technology. All of our servers are owned and operated by Final Host.
Most of our servers are Dell servers, others are custom-built with the most reliable equipment on the market today. All our servers speed and response times maintain the highest levels of performance. Best of all, there are less than 150 domains hosted on each of our servers, unlike
most of our competitors who, host anywhere from 500 to 1000 domains per server. With such a small number of domains on each server there is a lower server load, the disk access time is
measurably faster and the network speed is increased and uncongested. We keep our servers at less than 50% capacity
balancing server resources and delivering our clients websites with the best,
quickest service around.
