The Underlying Hardware
CARI.net's cloud architecture is a highly available, 100% fully redundant, fully scalable VLAN cluster. All cloud servers can run on any redundant physical servers. All host (physical) servers are connected to redundant, stackable, private 24-port 1Gbps switches via 6 redundant ports on 2 redundant network interface cards (2 ports per switch). This provides 4Gbps throughput between hosts. The SAN Storage Area Network (SAN) is Dell/Compellent redundant 10Gig switches are connected to redundant distribution switches and redundant routers with uplinks to redundant carriers using BGP mesh (Border Gateway Protocol). There are no limits to how far we can scale this cloud network.
