Why ENKI

ENKI was founded in 2006 to enable enterprises to deliver fast, reliable, and secure applications to their internal and external clients without the necessity for expensive and hard to find expert IT capability. To deliver on this commitment ENKI built their cloud utilizing only best of breed infrastructure and designed from the ground up for performance, security, and reliability and is supported only with highly trained engineers whom are IT experts with decades of operations experience.

Superior Hosting Begins with Superior Infrastructure

Performance (Click for details)
ENKI’s cloud delivers unparalleled performance that enables previously unimagined uses including a client who is operating over 3,000 VMs per server. Power of this magnitude is achieved only by using best of breed components selected with the goal of total solution performance in our cloud's design process. 

  • Brand New PowerEdge C6320 servers featuring next-generation Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors supporting up to 512GB of memory per server.
  • Juniper switching with 20 GbE fully redundant interconnect fabric between servers and storage.
  • Up to 60,000 dedicated SAN storage IOPS with SSD hybrid technology resulting in sub 5ms read and sub 1 ms write latency.
  • VMWare's virtualization utilizes minimal overhead enabling near bare-metal server performance.
  • ENKI never over-allocates CPU and memory yielding predictable performance.
Reliability
Through very careful planning and selection of components, ENKI’s infrastructure has consistently achieved over 99.99% uptime for over a decade and unlike the large commodity hosting services, ENKI has never experienced a complete data center failure. This record can only be achieved by:
  • Utilizing only the highest quality data center facilities with 2N+1 redundancy for power, cooling, ISP, and networking.
  • N+1 cloud infrastructure redundancy for servers, storage, and networking.
  • VMWare virtualization coupled with SAN storage enables self-healing, persistent instances that automatically restart on server failure.
  • Storage decoupled from servers using highly redundant SANs.
  • Brand new Dell servers and Juniper switches.
  • Can achieve ~100% uptime with geo-redundant application deployment.
  • Automated multipoint enterprise-grade remote network, server, and application monitoring coupled with smart automation where necessary to capture failures and exceptions and ensure prompt resolution.
Security and Compliance
Protection of client data and adherence to regulatory compliance is ENKI's to priority.
  • Multi-layered network security with VPDC built on hardware-based private networks and admin access via secure socket transport with encrypted keys and VPNs with two-factor authentication.
  • ENKI provides a full suite of security services including UTM firewall, encryption, log file monitoring and analysis, intrusion detection, internal and external scanning, file integrity monitoring, antivirus, and more.
  • HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SSAE 16 type I and II, SOC1 and SOC2 compliant data centers, with FedRamp compliance available. 
  • ENKI’s SecurVault 360 degree storage encryption secures everything you store including swap space for full compliance.
  • PCI/HIPAA compliant internal security policies and compliant change control process lessens the burdens of regulatory audits. Automated Continuous Compliance tracks required processes and documents and ensures that regularly scheduled compliance activities are performed.
Scalability
ENKI supports rapid scalability of client applications through:
  • Virtual machines up to 56 2.6 Ghz cores and 384 GBs of memory.
  • VM hot add capability means resources do not have to be provisioned for worst case load scenarios.
  • Custom auto-scaling capability to add or remove servers from load balanced groups automatically based on your unique load profile and requirements.
  • Monitoring services that alarm when any server or application metric approaches its performance limit.
  • By utilizing ENKI engineer's wealth of knowledge and experience on how to architect and deploy applications for maximum performance and scalability.
