Steadfast.net Adds Tata Communications to Improve Network Capacity and Performance
April 25, 2013 by FindMyHost News
Web Hosting Services – Chicago, Illinois – Steadfast.net, a dedicated server & colocation provider, today announced the addition of Tata Communications to its network. The addition provides a high-performance, fully redundant network which utilizes routing and switching products from Brocade, Cisco Systems, and Juniper Networks.
A representative for Steadfast said, “We added Tata Communications to our network because of the company’s strong connectivity to India as well as other developing countries and markets. The company has a solid management team that continues to expand their presence into many markets most of which are under-served by other carriers.” Steadfast now enjoys a better overall global connectivity so it’s able to server a broader customer base.
“We have been very pleased with our experience working with Steadfast and with the quality of the products and services we have received. Our account manager has been extremely responsive with any requests we have had and is instrumental in getting new IP allocations. We have some very specific needs that are imperative to our business and Steadfast has been able to meet all of these. Their flexibility they provide us and the way they manage their IP space from a spam reporting standpoint is unmatched.” – Joe Scharf VP Support Operations at SendGrid
Tata Communications is a Tier 1 global carrier and it is one of the top 8 global IP networks in the world. The addition allows Steadfast to connect to 6 of the 8 largest IP networks in the world and increases the company’s network capacity to 113 Gbit/sec. When that’s combined with Steadfast’s InterNAP FCP and it’s hundreds of direct peering relationships, it instantly gives the company one of the highest performing networks in the industry.
Steadfast already enjoys a 100% network uptime SLA and company executives believe it’ll be hard for anyone to find a better quality network product anywhere. The company’s representative said, “This capacity allows us to serve the needs of even the largest demands for capacity and scalability, while assuring we do not see any of the negative effects of network congestion, even during large traffic spikes.”
The company has been in a steady growth pattern for the past 15 years and its powerful cloud hosting platform hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, in October of 2012 Steadfast.net was chosen by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s College of Business and Economics to host its online video streaming. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is the largest business school in the state. The school’s faculty has been making video recordings of lectures since its online MBA program’s inception in 1999 and it now boasts more than 5,000 videos all of which are hosted by Steadfast.
