"In the ten years that we have monitored Datapipe's site, I have been struck by its relentless reliability and performance," said Mike Prettejohn, Netcraft Director. "It is now over seven years since it last had a discernible outage, and Datapipe's strategy of having requests for the site answered from the closest Datapipe datacenter to the point of request means that their site is consistently the fastest to respond of any of the hosting company sites we monitor."
As part of its analysis, Netcraft records the HTTP response code, the size of the response and multiple timing metrics, including: DNS lookup time, connect time, time to first byte, time from last byte of request to the last byte of the response, as well as total time.
"Moreover, when the Internet has been stressed & disrupted through hurricanes, grid blackouts, terrorist activity and natural disasters, Datapipe's performance has been the calm amidst the storm; showing little difference from a normal day. While providing a normal service through one freak event might be attributable to good fortune, achieving it throughout the past decade shows a level of preparation, determination and resourcefulness that is possessed by very few," Prettejohn added.
Datapipe leverages a unique, fail-safe network infrastructure and proprietary routing technology. This highly reliable and scalable infrastructure is supported by high capacity, Tier 1 backbone providers to drive the highest levels of customer uptime.
