If you want your websites, applications and systems to be available and secure at all times, hosting provided by Combell is the perfect choice. But sometimes, on very rare occasions, a disaster can also affect a data centre. In such cases, a multi-data centre solution will offer you additional protection: we will duplicate your infrastructure in two data centres - providing a double guarantee of high availability.
Combell data centres are of top quality. They are highly protected against fire, physical intruders and cyberattacks, we guarantee constant power supply, they have the most advanced server infrastructure and our collaborators are all experts in their respective fields. In short, your data and infrastructure are extremely well protected.
That being said, if your applications, websites or systems are truly business-critical (web stores, banking apps, etc.), we advise you to double the security by using a multi-data centre solution. Because you can never be too careful.
Combell has a large number of data centres at its disposal. If you opt for our multi-data centre solution, your servers will run in two data centres. The server environments are identical. If, due to a disaster, your server infrastructure in one of the data centres is no longer accessible, an identical machine will start running a few seconds later in the other data centre. Without any downtime and without losing any data.
Many hosting providers use DNS technology in their multi-data centre solutions. But we take a different approach. Since we want to be able to very quickly switch between the two data centres in the event of an incident, we use BGP technology (Border Gateway Protocol), combined with a load balancer. If one of the data centres fails, the router will immediately notice the failure and redirect the traffic to the other data centre. Without a single second of delay.

We take your business as seriously as you do. That is why we watch over every aspect of your hosting.
