DataPipe had the most reliable hosting company site in June 2009. The company's site responded without fail to every request made by Netcraft's performance collectors throughout the month.
This is DataPipe's second appearance at the top so far this year. Jersey City based DataPipe has established partnerships with Cisco, FreeBSD, HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, Sun, and VMware, and its commitments to customer service were recognised in this year's Stevie Awards, where the company was listed as a finalist in the Customer Service Department of the Year - IT & Telecommunications category. The company has more than 1,500 customers in six data centres and eight business office locations in the United States, the United Kingdom and China.
Among June's top ten hosting company sites, four companies (including DataPipe) run their sites on FreeBSD. Three other companies run their sites on Linux, while the remaining identifiable operating systems is Windows Server 2003.
Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting providers' sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.
From a customer's point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies' own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.
Further information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
