Concordant runs its own servers in its own dedicated rack space at a nearby Tier 2 colocation site.
Our network services run on a set of replicated servers each with redundant disks.
There are several advantages to this
- The platform has considerable resilience to failures
- We can shut down individual servers to do scheduled maintenance without bringing down customer services.
- Since the disks belong to us we can ensure they are destroyed properly at end-of-life
- We have 24/7 access to the servers and so can go and remedy problems without having to wait for a provider to get around to us
