postheadericon Our Technology

Cutting edge technology puts you in front of the competition.

Virtual Masters owns and operates our private data centers. By owning our data centers rather than leasing, we are able to design, build and maintain an ideal server environment. This allows us to provide our clients fast, secure and reliable performance at all times.

The Virtual Masters network has been designed to accommodate clients demanding the highest quality network performance. There is a central focus on redundancy allowing our network to rapidly self-heal failures without interruptions to connectivity. At Virtual Masters, we own our infrastructure.

Web Hosting Infrastructure

The following diagram represents the Virtual Masters web hosting infrastructure.


Linux and Windows Platforms

Redhat and CentOS Platforms

Redhat and CentOS are the leading provider of Linux open source software. For many years now Redhat and CentOS Linux have been the number one choice for web hosting companies, not just because of Redhat's amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today.

Our systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology to allow our servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches.

Unlike many of our competitors, we run Redhat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that keeps completely up to date with security patches.

Windows Platform

We use Microsoft Windows Server 2008 to power our Windows shared hosting platform.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is the most advanced Windows Server operating system yet, designed to power the next generation of networks, applications, and Web services. With Windows Server 2008 you can develop, deliver, and manage rich user experiences and applications, provide a highly secure network infrastructure, and increase technological efficiency and value within your organization.
