- About CWH
Canada Web Hosting operates from data centers located in downtown Toronto and Vancouver. Both the Toronto Data Center (151 Front Street) and the Vancouver Data Center (Harbour Centre) are located in key Canadian Network Access Points (NAP)s and are engineered to world-class standards. The quality of these facilities allow Canada Web Hosting to offer a 100% infrastructure availability guarantee to all its customers.
Canada Web Hosting's Global Load Balancing service allows customers on the eMax hosting platform to balance traffic across multiple servers in geographically distributed data centers. Globally load balanced traffic can be routed to a particular data center based on the geographic location of the viewer, transit time for traffic between viewer and server, health of alternate servers, load, and a long list of other criteria.
By utilizing global load balancing, clients can improve their sites' performance by moving content closer to users, mitigate DoS attacks and also protect against a catastrophic failure or natural disaster at one data center.
Traffic load balancing distributes web traffic between multiple servers performing the same function in the same location, whether they are firewalls, web servers, databases or caches. Canada Web Hosting's Cisco load balancers can be configured with a variety of traffic balancing algorithms including least load and round-robin.
Content load balancing distributes web traffic between multiple servers performing different functions in the same location. For example, Canada Web Hosting can direct requests for static web objects to a cache server farm and requests for dynamic web content to an application server farm. The result is a much more efficient, high-performance web hosting platform.
