Our Infrastructure

We believe in being transparent with our clients, and the way we present our hosting infrastructure is no different. See what we’re made of.

Through a combination of carefully engineered network infrastructure and top of the line upstream bandwidth providers, Astute provides a true performance-oriented, high availability network. In addition to 10Gb links to our premium transit providers, our infrastructure is built with redundancy at every level. With Astute, our clients have access to a higher class of connectivity.
