Your firm's Confidential Disclosure Forum will be hosted on an Aristotle firewall-protected secure server. Aristotle has a strong commitment to maintaining its position on the cutting edge of web server technology. We employ the highest level of technology available during the development and hosting of client websites and applications including:
- Single and Dual processor Dell Poweredge (tm) servers
- Redundant disk array systems (RAID levels 1 and 5)
- Windows 2000 Server SP3
- Microsoft IIS Version 4 and 5
- Microsoft DAC/DAO Version 2.7
- Microsoft SQL Server Version 7.0 and 2000
Aristotle is also a Universal-level subscriber to the Microsoft Developer Network, which ensures that Aristotle receives timely updates and new versions of all available Microsoft development products.
Aristotle shows 99.99% connectivity uptime over the last three months. Scheduled maintenance always occurs during off-peak hours, between 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., and is usually during weekends.
Aristotle also maintains a redundant connection to the Internet, thereby ensuring that the website will be seen even if the primary connection is interrupted for any reason.
Should a server failure ever occur, Aristotle provides a 24x7 notification system. At five-minute intervals, software polls the website to determine if the site is active. In the event that the site cannot be reached, this software pages the Technician on call and indicates which server in the Aristotle pool is having difficulty. Response time during business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, is immediate. Response time after hours is under one hour.
Aristotle typically hosts multiple websites on a server with a dedicated tape back up system. Aristotle performs daily incremental backups and stores tapes in a fireproof cabinet. In the event of a hard drive failure, recovery time for these standard servers would be approximately 6 hours. Recovery time for dedicated servers can be even less.
If needed, Aristotle's server environment is fully compatible with NT clustering technology in conjunction with SQL Server 7.0 and IIS.
Currently, Aristotle maintains a DS3 connection to the Internet. This connection ensures that Aristotle can support the bandwidth required for the client's site.
