Network Infrastructure

Our network is ranked as one of the best-connected hosting facilities in the world. There has been heavy investment in both network equipment and backbone connections to ensure that you get the fastest access possible to their content and applications. The network's multiple diverse Internet backbones mean that our connectivity is not dependent upon any single provider, ensuring the maximum possible network uptime.
The Planet internal network architecture utilizes the Enterprise routing and switching engines from Juniper and Cisco. We utilize Cisco 7600 series routers as border routers, Cisco 6500 series switches in our distribution layer, and Cisco 3500 and 2900 series switches at the access layer. Our network is fully meshed and redundant with 6 backbone providers. Our current network consists of, UUNet (GigE), Level 3 (GigE), Time Warner (GigE), Global Crossing (GigE), Verio (GigE), and AT&T (DS3).



Tandy Electronics operates with two state of the art datacenter facilities located in Dallas and Texas. Both facilities offer complete redundancy in power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity, and security with over 35,000 sq ft of raised floor and 15,000 sq ft of static free tile. Both facilities are powered with multiple power grids driven by TXU electric, both facilities have multiple Liebert and PowerWare UPS battery backup power, and both facilities have onsite permanent generator power. Our HVAC systems are a combination of glycol, chilled water, and condenser units by Liebert and Data Aire to provide redundancy in cooling coupled with 6 managed backbone providers. Twelve more third party backbone providers are available in the building via cross connect. Fire suppression includes a pre-action dry pipe system in both facilities including VESDA (very early smoke detection apparatus) along with over 600 smoke detectors. Security is also concern for The Planet and our customers so all facilities are key card access with CCTV for maximum security. The goal is to provide maximum redundancy in every facet of the datacenter environment to facilitate 100% uptime for your entire hosting infrastructure.
Our datacenter infrastructure and equipments are monitored at all times. Our internal monitoring system is an open source code highly modified by our technicians to satisfy our customer needs. The IP Alert system monitors up to 16 different services over a private or public IP network without a client install. Our premium IP Alert system also includes a client based monitoring application that will allow us to drill down and monitor all internal server services such as RAM usage, CPU usage, applications, services, and internal temperature. The IP Alert system is available online 24/7/365 for viewing services and up to date statistical information. We also monitor all internal datacenter infrastructures through a commercial software application called Datatrax. Datatrax allows our NOC technicians to monitor electrical, UPS, HVAC, and generator systems from their desktops. This information is key in controlling the datacenter environmental and to make certain all equipment is housed in the most favorable conditions.
