I chose SpeedFox because of their top quality network and the fact that their support staff is based in Austin, Texas. Also, their staff is in-house. I am getting sick of calling for help on my other technology products and getting someone on the line that does not even speak English, so the fact that SpeedFox is based in the United States and has support staff that understands me was important.

The redundancy you benefit from:
Redundant, state-of-the-art fire detection and suppression systems are used to keep equipment safe. VESDA (very early smoke detection apparatus) allows for ample time to investigate and detect any particulates which may potentially be caused by equipment overheating. When a power surge occurs, ATS (automatic transfer switch) automatically changes from primary to secondary alternate supply. UPS (uninterrupted power supply) protects your mission-critical data and applications while multi-grid connections offer you the greatest power. Multiple on-site diesel generators automatically switch on within seven seconds of a power outage and each generator is checked daily. Raised floors allow for easy access to power and electrical cables. SpeedFox provides unwavering dedication and state-of-the-art support.
