Crucial Paradigm Australia Completes Major Network Upgrade to Support Customer Growth

SYDNEY, Australia (December 8, 2009) —Crucial Paradigm Australia, a leading provider of Managed Web hosting and Virtual Private Servers for small to medium sized businesses, announced today it has completed an overhaul of its entire core network, adding significantly more traffic capacity and the capability to quickly scale the network to a larger size.

Experiencing more than 300 percent growth in the last year, the company’s network upgrade will enable it to continue to support increasing high demand for Linux and Windows Virtual Private Servers, in addition to other managed services. Crucial Paradigm Australia already manages close to a terabyte of VPS RAM capacity, making it a leader in the Australian Virtual Private Server market.

“We’re in the midst of a period of tremendous positive growth for Crucial Paradigm Australia, and we have been successful in scaling our network and customer support resources to meet the increased demand. Today’s announcement is a major milestone for our company and will enable us to remain an industry leader for years to come,” said Aaron Weller, managing director of Crucial Paradigm Australia.

The upgraded network now relies exclusively on Cisco® routers and switches, and is fully redundant with distinct connections to multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The capacity of the network enables it to handle more than 200 million packets per second with ease. Crucial Paradigm Australia is one of the only hosting companies in the region able to handle that level of constant traffic, making its network among the most robust and stable in Australia.

Crucial Paradigm Australia was the first Web hosting company in Australia to offer Windows 2008 Virtual Private Servers. It currently manages more than 450 Dedicated Servers in over 30 countries through its United States and Australian operations.

  • Juniper switches and routers are much more cost effective than Cisco. Pity.

  • Dean, Juniper switches and routers are definitely good pieces of equipment. However the Cisco solution suited our requirements better, and performs very well.
