The type of server can range from an Intel based PC to Sun Microsystems with all sorts of different hardware configurations. Most
issues regarding stability are determined at the server level, which
integrates tightly with the Operating System. If you are looking for
reliability, this is one of the most important considerations: What is the
Techtrade uses Sun Microsystems Enterprise 250 Webservers for all
clients. Unlike a majority of other webhosting providers who use less
stable Intel-based webservers for UNIX hosting, we believe in reliability
Each of Enterprise 250 servers have the following specifications:
Dual Sun UltraSparc II 300MHz Processor
1,024 MB of Random Access Memory (RAM)
Dual Power Supply
Over 90GB of data storage
With dual processors, over a Gigabyte of RAM, we can say with confidence
that our webservers are more robust that any other hosting company today.
The Sun Enterprise solution was choosen based on mission
critical websites who also utilize the Enterprise family of servers.
Amazon.com, eBay, Charles Shwab, and other Internet reliant companies
continue to use and support Sun.
Since we use Sun Enterprise servers, it makes sense that we use Solaris 7
as our operating system. Solaris 7 is the first true 64-bit operating
system available from Sun Microsystems. All of our servers are running
