As a provider of professional network design services, we are committed to delivering stable, secure and high availability web infrastructures. We work with high performance web infrastructures that serve millions page requests per day. Our clients expect nothing less than 100% platform up time with a focus on network security, scalability and flexibility.

Our own website is becoming more and more popular, with the number of visits increasing each and every month. With the increase in traffic we decided that the

We have decided to utilise high-end hardware for both web layer and database layer of our infrastructure. As a hardware selection for the web layer we have decided on Dell 710 servers (Dell 710, 2x Quad Core Xeon X5677 @ 3.47GHz, 16GB Dual Rank RDIMM 1333MHz, PERC H700/i 512MB Cache, 6x 146GB 15k RPM SAS disks), with the database layer pretty much the same.
In terms of Operating System we agreed on 64bit version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, which we have working on since it was released. It comes with everything what we needed to run our Joomla based website including recent technology/software: Apache 2.2.15, MySQL 5.1.52 and PHP 5.3.2.

By upgrading hardware to a high end level we have managed to reduce speed of homepage serving to 40ms. This impressive performance is a result of top level hardware, well optimised Red Hat operating system along with proper use of various caching technologies.

Proxar team has an extensive experience in delivering high performance, secure web infrastructures. Our combined experience covers area of data centre design, system administration and network security. Our consultants have been working with the technology world leaders like Cisco and Red Hat for many years.
