Unleash Your SharePoint Cloud Performance
Whether it’s related to cars, computers or cleaning supplies, fast performance is critical. You need your SharePoint Hosting environment at top speed with the fastest available internet connections and upload speeds. So that’s how we designed the Fpweb.net SharePoint Cloud.
High Performance Data Centers
Our strategically placed data centers rest on massive internet hubs in dual utility power grid locations that double as ideal geographic locations. The result is a SharePoint Cloud that’s faster than any in-house connection. This enterprise grade system helps us ensure a fast, secure and redundant network optimized for SharePoint to our customers all over the world.
High Performance Network
Fpweb.net’s network is comprised of a fully meshed configuration of state-of-the-art networking equipment from Cisco. The core of our network is fully redundant - for every switch or router, there’s at least one hot spare. The network is connected to multiple Tier 1 internet providers to minimize the distance to the end user and to build redundancy. And by always ensuring our network is below 50% total utilization, peak SharePoint network performance is available during SharePoint traffic spikes.
High Performance Connections
We supply two diverse network connections from two separate core switches from our redundant core. While only one connection is used to route traffic, the second is a hot standby circuit ready to route traffic if needed. The instantaneous change to the hot standby circuit happens without any adjustments to the network configuration.
High Performance Support
Our certified engineers proactively monitor our network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also use an external third party to monitor from an offsite location 24/7. This dual monitor approach ensures that our network performs at full power while minimizing network problems. We display our trust in our network performance with the 100% network uptime guarantee in our industry-leading SLA.
Performs Better than On-Premises
If you thought on-premises servers could provide less lag time and a faster connection, think again. Fpweb.net’s SharePoint Cloud actually performs as fast and, in most cases, faster than tested infrastructures.
Important network considerations that are often overlooked:
What about SharePoint for Internet Sites (FIS)?
SharePoint for Internet Sites requires a global reach that in-house environments can rarely match. Fpweb.net’s Data Centers are located in geographically centralized locations to ensure faster global performance.
Is your SQL Server optimized for a faster response time?
Your on-premises SharePoint program mainly deals with content that is stored in a SQL database. SharePoint runs on top of this and typically means that your SQL database is powering more than just SharePoint. Your Fpweb.net SharePoint Cloud comes with dedicated SharePoint experts who can configure your SQL to match your SharePoint environment, greatly enhancing your network performance and response time.
What about your remote or traveling employees?
Often businesses have de-centralized teams that must collaborate together, and sometimes employees just work from home. The SharePoint Cloud performs better than in-house thanks to our Hub spot connection that maximizes internet speed, improves performance and lessens latency for remote users.
With top speeds and high availability, Fpweb.net’s SharePoint Cloud sets the standard in performance.
