June 16, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Chicago-based managed web-hosting provider, SingleHop, has announced significant increases in bandwidth through two new agreements with backbone IP providers AboveNet and nLayer. Each of SingleHop’s two data centers will feature 40 gigabits of network connectivity. The upgrades are planned to be completed over the next several months.
The increases in IP traffic connectivity are part of the network upgrades that SingleHop has been performing since February of this year, and focused on establishing a powerful platform that can encompass future growth without any sacrifices. Andy Pace, VP of Operations for SingleHop, mentioned that the new “IP capacity gives all SingleHop clients tremendously increased capabilities, especially during peak traffic time, and provides an additional layer of protection from denial of service (DDoS) saturation attacks. In the end, though, it provides our entire network with a solid foundation for future growth without having to sacrifice performance at all”.
