Globix is co-locating the Guardian’s servers in its state-of-the-art Internet Data Centre, providing a firewall solution and backup software and, beginning in September, will also provide a Streaming Media solution to Webcast interactive and pre-recorded educational videos over the Internet.

“The main factors that influenced our choice were the Globix data centre’s convenient New Oxford Street location, the resiliency of the Globix network, experienced staff and, most importantly, the ability to respond to a fast installation requirement,” said Colin Hughes, publisher of “We had a shortlist of three Internet companies — out of these Globix came up with a package that best met our needs.”

The site is connected to the Globix global backbone, a network with a total capacity of 32 Gbps linking data centres and peering points throughout Europe and the United States.

Hughes added, “Since our launch the site has been getting about 12,000 page impressions per day. We expect this to remain stable until the new school year in September. As the scope of the site grows, we expect our bandwidth requirements to increase correspondingly. With the scaleable solution Globix provides, we will have the flexibility to increase our bandwidth in line with our site traffic.”

“ is an exciting project that will supplement the national curriculum,” said John Moore, general manager at Globix. “Video streaming will be a particularly useful feature of the site, enabling users to participate in live tutorials and classes. Globix can deliver an end-to- end Streaming Media solution, from live production to encoding and through hosting the content, thereby assuring a consistent high level of quality throughout the process. We are looking forward to supporting the site as it continues to grow.”
