We're here to stay.
Micron21 is a self-funded Australian private company. We own our building, the equipment, infrastructure, and all of the technology associated with Australia's first tier 4 data centre.
Our facility is certified in accordance with the exacting, global standards of The Uptime Institute: an advisory body dedicated to gauging and certifying performance, efficiency and reliability of business critical infrastructure. Enjoy the stability of partnering with an established, trustworthy and globally reputable provider.
Sites hosted on high quality super servers.
Many cloud providers select the cheapest option possible when purchasing hardware, often to the detriment of quality. We use premium Dell Enterprise servers and our constant research and development ensures our servers are robust and purpose-engineered for high performance.
Harness the power of the latest technology.
All hardware fails eventually – it's a matter of ‘when', not ‘if'.
The best way to mitigate that risk is to rely on cutting edge, industry leading technology. To eliminate the potential damages associated with hardware failure, we employ a maximum life-cycle policy of three years on servers. The policy ensures our fleet is up-to-date with the latest technology.
Low contention ratios ensure that server resources are not overloaded.
It's common practice for ‘cheap' hosting providers to squeeze as many customers onto each server as possible. In some cases, there can be more than 500 accounts on a single server.
This technique causes never-ending problems, as system resources are constantly running at a high load. Micron21 servers are deemed full at 70% utilisation to ensure there is necessary volume for ideal operating conditions. On every server, for every client.
Flexible contract options.
We're confident that our services and support are second to none. In a fast paced IT world, it can be difficult to accurately gauge future business needs – that's why our contract policy is flexible.
Any Micron21 client can apply for services on a month-to-month basis (excluding hardware leases, co-location, VPN tails, and services specifically requiring a contract), with the flexibility to change, upgrade, or cancel the service at any time with 30 day's notice, no strings attached.
Independent redundant name servers and backup mail server.
Name servers are responsible for transferring domain names into IP addresses. They primarily work to ensure that computers can find your website when someone looks up your domain name. Most cloud companies run their name servers on the same network as an accounts' website, and in many cases, on the same server. As a result, if the name server goes down, so does the clients' website and email.
We use geographically dispersed name servers for increased redundancy and service reliability. This practice also translates into faster response times for domain names, and a higher level of availability.
