Gondola Webworks was established in late
1998 with a view to writing web pages for small
businesses, non-profit organizations and private
individuals, for a competitive price.
Since that time, the company has grown to include web
hosting, e-commerce, newsletters, and ad graphic creation
as part of its portfolio of Internet services.
We also assist our clients in registering their own domain
names at the best going rates, with no additional
surcharge. This means that if you were thinking of getting
your own "dot com" we can help set that up for you in a
Gondola Webworks provides a complete web presence solution
for its clients, who do not have to know anything other
than they need to have a spot on the Internet, they don't

The data centre we use is located in Orlando, Florida, and has the following specifications:
100% Cisco and Linux powered
Directly owned and maintained --
no third party involvement. This means technicians are on hand
24/7 to address any problems our clients might have.
Equipment: All routers and
switches are made by Cisco. Cisco is a tried and true
manufacturer, so Cisco is our only choice for all network
Connectivity: We are connected to TIER 1 providers straight into
our data center and your servers are the first in line to these
unrestrained highways. We do not use a single carrier nor do we
use cheap cogent bandwidth. We are connected to the
Level3 Dual Gigabit Internet Backbone and the
Time Warner Telecom Gigabit Internet Backbone. In addition,
the data center uses multiple third-party carriers, Cisco
Gigabit switch routers, and has a 32 gigabit bandwidth network
Power: The power systems in the
data center are designed to run uninterrupted even in the
unlikely event of a total power outage. All servers are fed with
conditioned UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) power that will
run if utility power fails. The UPS power subsystem is "N+1"
redundant with instantaneous fail over in case the primary UPS
Security: Access to the data
center floors is restricted to those authorized. Complete access
to our floor is only permitted by allowance from the security
guards at the front desk, around the clock. You can be safe in
the knowledge that only a handful of highly trained, level-three
technicians will be allowed within close physical proximity to
Environment: The data center's
HVAC (Heating and Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is "N+1"
redundant to ensure that - even in the event of an entire HVAC
system failure - there is a duplicate system on standby to take
over. An advanced fire-suppression system is in place to prevent
any fire from spreading - in the unlikely event that one could
start. We have 4 Data Aire air conditioning units that provide
optimal conditions for equipment operations.
Monitoring: Data centre technical
staff work around the clock to ensure that the network is
operating at the most optimum state. Collected statistics are
continually reviewed with very precise care and attention.
Traffic trends are closely monitored so that the proper routing
adjustments and bandwidth additions can be made immediately.
