Cloud Hosting

Hosting of our clients’ web applications takes place at the premises of Interworks. Interworks has been selected by Microsoft Corp. to become a certified Incubation Center for the South East Europe and one of the few Microsoft Incubation Centers worldwide, providing Managed Application Hosting in Cloud Servers that guarantee 99.9% availability. Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth.


The Dynamic Data Center (DDC), where the hosting takes place, is built according to International Technical Standards, certified by TUV (H-04/839/Rev.0) for the physical security and it functions based on the Rules of National Authority of Communications Classification (ADAE). The Dynamic Data Center (DDC) is a combination of automation, control, and resource management software with a well-defined topology of servers, storage, and networking hardware.
 
The Data Center equipment consists of top brand high performance devices and servers.  Cisco routers and switches interconnect the application serbers with the local 1Gbit backbone. Rack-mounted HP DL & ML series servers setup in load balancing and clustered configurations provide ultimate performance and availability. Latest technology SAN switches and storage enclosures over redundant 2Gbps fiber connections safeguard critical business data and sustain effective performance between frond-end and back-end data. 
 
The Data Center facility is installed according to N+1 philoshophy redundancy configuration, in order to ensure the operation from a breakdown in hardware or networking modules.  All major infrastructure components with its equipment have been carefully designed and engineered from the ground up to accommodate today’s demands on high availability, security and performance.  
 
As fas as network connectivity is concerned, internet connections are maintained with major internet, network and telecommunication service providers in Greece to provide high performance internet connections, multiple link load balancing, redundancy and failover and ensure that adequate bandwidth will always be allocated resulting in fast system responses and high throughput of all critical running services and applications.
 
Finally, as to data protection, all individual servers employ advanced protection mechanisms through the use of locally configured firewalls as well as antivirus and antispyware software. Critical operating system and application updates are automatically performed on a regular basis to ensure all services operate under the most secure conditions at all times. Application security is further strengthened by multiple load-balanced front-end core firewalls that inspect all incoming and outgoing traffic, regulate bandwidth usage and perform advanced filtering methods (packet filtering, stateful filtering, application layer filtering) on every published application or delivered service over the internet.
 
Altanet through this collaboration guarantees the necessary availability, reliability and high performance of its customers' websites.


Secure your Website


In eCommerce applications or applications where a secured access to members of a service is required, an SSL (Secure Socket Layer Certificates) needs to be in place. For that purpose, Altanet is cooperating with the leading certificate providers in the world, such as VERIGISN, THAWTE and GEOTRUST.

Depending on the client’s needs, we propose the most appropriate SSL certificate and cover the whole process, from the initial keys (cer) to the collection of required documents, the installation and the quality management.
