Headquarters + Backup NOC Overview:

Designed with redundancies in place to ensure maximum uptime and accessibility, our corporate headquarters office serves as our backup Network Operations Center. The NOC within our headquarters served as our primary data center facility for twelve years (1998-2010) with a historic uptime of over 99.95%.

  • OC48 Fiber Connectivity
  • Cisco Routing, Firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems
  • Liebert Climate Control with Redundancy
  • Line Conditioning Powered By High-End APC Units
  • Redundant Power via Diesel Caterpillar Generator with Real-Time Transfer Switch
  • Actively Monitored Security with 24/7 Card-Key Access, Video and Audio Monitoring

Application Architecture and Redundancies

YourMembership’s applications are not only hosted within a hardened facility with many redundancies, but the network itself is supported by system redundancies of its own. Multiple fiber providers connect the application to the Internet. These routes are monitored 24x7x365 by systems that alert YourMembership engineers should an aberration be detected. Cisco routing and firewalling optimizes and defends the network against malicious requests and alerts engineers of anomalies.

The physical servers have redundant disk subsystems, networking and power. The servers run in clusters to handle spikes in usage and provide fault tolerance should an individual node encounter a localized complete system failure. The web clusters are load balanced so web requests are processed using the most optimal nodes at any given time. Database servers operate as clusters which allow pushing the load to a standby server should a primary server encounter a localized system failure.

Data is replicated to secondary nodes within minutes of transactions being committed on the primary node. These transactions are also securely replicated to YourMembership’s secondary facility. DNS is hosted in multiple geographic locations including a presence in Europe. YourMembership’s DNS employs anycast addressing which routes DNS requests to the closest geographic location.

Data Backup + Replication + Restore

The database systems powering the YourMembership network have multiple redundancies to ensure maximum up-time. Not only does the hardware utilize physical redundancies (redundant disk sub-systems, power, network) but database instances also run as clustered configurations. In the event of a node failure a failover node can assume an active role.

Data from these systems as well as client-uploaded content are replicated locally to off-application systems as well as geographically to our remote data center in near real-time. YourMembership data retention policies ensure data is available for emergency restoration if necessary.
