Partnership with PEER 1
PEER 1 Hosting operates 16 state-of-the-art data centers in 14 cities across North America and Europe with 19 network points of presence (PoPs). Most are full-service Collocation facilities. These locations include New York NY, Miami FL, Toronto ON, Vancouver BC, Los Angeles CA, and Portsmouth UK. The highly secure and redundant IT infrastructure of our data centers protects your servers, web presence and business. In other words, we do everything humanly possible to keep you online all of the time.
24 / 7 / 365 In-House Support
Our Network Operations Center (NOC) is unlike any other hosting provider. It is in-house and constantly monitors and controls all traffic on our FastFiber Network™ inside and outside of our data centers. When you have an issue, they handle it personally, so it gets resolved quickly.
Our engineers and data center personnel manage every aspect of our facilities around the clock. From security and deploying devices to handling the day to day needs of our customers’ solutions, they are ready to act whenever you need them.
SSAE 16, CSAE 3416 and ISAE 3402 Certified
Our customers face an ever-increasing compliance burden, and this is why PEER 1 Hosting is compliant with standards of SSAE 16, CSAE 3416, and ISAE 3402. These accreditation’s reflect controls which are in place over a period of time, commonly referred to within the industry as Type II. Our SSAE 16 certification, or equivalent (CSAE 3416 and ISAE 3402), shifts a bit of the financial reporting burden from our customers to PEER 1, as our customers can use our certification report to satisfy their own auditors. What this means is that we have undergone an independent, in-depth audit of our control activities. This includes how we manage the hosting and network technologies and services that we provide to our customers. We renew this certification annually as it ensures that our internal controls are kept to the highest standards.
PEER 1 Hosting is also a Microsoft® Gold Certified Partner, Red Hat® Advanced Hosting Partner, and Safe Harbor certified.
Member of Center for Internet Security
PEER 1 Hosting is a member of CIS (Center for Internet Security). CIS is a nonprofit organization that serves as a central resource for the development and delivery of high-quality, timely products and services. This assists its partners in government, academia, the private sector, and the general public in improving their cybersecurity posture. CIS Security Benchmarks, a division of CIS, is an online community of organizations and individuals seeking actionable security resources. As part of this community, PEER 1 has access to Consensus Security Configuration Benchmarks, Scoring Tools, Consensus Security Metric definitions, and discussion forums where we are an integral stakeholder in collaborating on security best practices.
PEER 1 has leveraged these resources to develop Hardened Operating System templates that are available to PEER 1 customers who need an extra level of security to comply with Requirement 2.3 of the PCI DSS Standards.‡
Regulated Climate Control
Our heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) systems have full particle filtering and humidity control. The climate within each of our data centers is maintained according to ASHRAE Guidelines. This ensures your mission-critical dedicated server and hardware is functioning at its best.
Unlike some providers, we don’t rely solely on the local power grid to guarantee around-the-clock power. Our on-site diesel-powered generators and uninterruptible power systems (UPS) deliver redundant power if a critical incident occurs. This ensures all operations are uninterrupted and your dedicated servers remain online. We regularly test our infrastructure to make sure it performs as designed in the event of an emergency. We back it all up with our 100% Power Service Level Agreement (SLA) and 100% Network Uptime SLA.
Our data centers are locked and guarded, and can only be accessed by authorized PEER 1 Hosting personnel. Monitored closed circuit television systems and on-site security teams vigilantly protect our data centers around the clock. In addition, we employ military-grade pass card access and biometric finger scan units† provide even further security.
