We utilise multiple high performance ISPs in BGP 4 configuration to allow auto-healing, and auto-failover. Additionally we peer with Hostgee NNDC to ensure our customers have the best transit mix available.

Infrastructure

hostgee offers true enterprise High-Availability, Cloud based, Web and VPS hosting solutions.

The Hostgee NNDC datacenter in Riyadh, the latest Hewlett Packard blade infrastructure, SolidFire SSD SAN and a fully redundant Cisco network with multiple bandwidth providers and peering partners; we are able to offer one of the most reliable and powerful hosting environments in the Saudi Arabia today.

Hostgee’s Cloud uses clustered Hewlett-Packard blade servers packing serious grunt, each of our Clouds utilise the latest hex-core Intel processors and DDR3 RAM - all completely hardware redundant and in failover configuration to deliver one of the the fastest and most reliable hosting solutions in Saudi Arabia.

We are also the only hosting provider in the central Riyadh to use the Solidfire SSD SAN, widely recognised as one of the fastest commercially available storage network arrays in the world. No other hosting provider can offer you the speed, and reliability of our all-SSD Solidfire SAN.

All of Hostgee’s infrastructure is the tier-4 (highest) in Olaya, Riyadh. Hostgee NNDC is synonymous with quality, reliability. So rest easy as your data is stored securely in Saudi Arabia, within our world-class NNDC (datacenter) facility.

SolidFire believes traditional storage is way too slow, far too complex, and much too expensive to deliver the infrastructure large-scale cloud computing environments demand. They offer an all-SSD based SAN solution with node redundancy and guaranteed performance built in.

They are passionate about delivering high-performance and high-efficiency storage systems to cloud service providers.

Hostgee are the first hosting provider in the Riyadh to offer SolidFire SSD SAN hosting and are proud to partner with a world leader in storage solutions.

Performance virtualization and
guaranteed quality of service

Scalable, reliable storage for cloud-scale computing – guaranteed. SolidFire’s advanced storage technology is changing the way block storage services are provisioned and managed within the cloud. High-speed, solid-state disk in concert with real-time data efficiency techniques and guaranteed quality of service makes SolidFire the most powerful and economical solution for providing Storage-as-a-Service.

SSDs are used exclusively throughout the system – there are no spinning disks. Within each storage node, solid-state drives and processing power are balanced to take advantage of drive speeds and execute SolidFire’s inline efficiency technology. The system also leverages patented algorithms that layout data in a manner that minimizes wear and extends the life of SSD media. In comparison to traditional storage design, SolidFire eliminates write amplification while maximizing random parallel reads and aggregating writes in a linear fashion.

High availability
and data protection

One of the radical improvements within the SolidFire storage system is the removal of RAID algorithms for data protection. Traditional RAID controllers are too slow to keep up with SSDs and causes write amplification that places unnecessary wear on solid-state media.

All data within a SolidFire system is protected via SolidFire’s Helix data protection. This patented self-healing technology maintains data redundancy levels regardless of the type of failure within the system. This enables cloud service providers to manage failures through their maintenance cycle “fire drill” that traditional storage subsystem failures cause. Additionally, the SolidFire SSD SAN uses clever data replication across all storage nodes, improving security over a standard SAN. More storage nodes can be added at any time providing a true scale-out solution.

Helix data protection also reduces the exposure and overall system impact of failures compared to traditional RAID based systems. In most architectures the loss of a single drive can have a 40-50% impact on performance until the drive has been replaced and completely rebuilt – a process that can take days. Within a SolidFire system, the affects of a device failure are proportional to that device’s size within the system. As an example, if a single drive fails out of a 1000-drive system, performance and capacity are only reduced by 0.1%.

Energy Savings

SolidFire’s storage technology dramatically reduces the energy cost and consumption for cloud providers when providing block storage at cloud scale. The exclusive use of all-SSD results in lower power and cooling requirements, and when combined with efficient capacity utilization, SolidFire’s datacenter footprint is 600% less than traditional disk systems. With the combination of HP and SolidFire we are now moving towards being Saudi Arabia’s greenest hosting provider.

SolidFire is a enterprise grade, high performance, all-SSD storage system with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). We are proud and excited to offer SolidFire SSD storage to our valued customers.
