Infrastructure

FWX Company is committed to keeping our network and hardware infrastructure to the most updated configurations to ensure all weather data and forecasts are delivered successfully on-time. FWX Company has invested thousands of dollars in our current infrastructure including in hardware, networking devices, and hands-on support inside the our partner data center locations. Our partner locations are usually within the Contiguous United States besides our LDM Feeder server which was picked to be in Canada due to bandwidth restrictions. FWX Company also three operated wholly owned servers in our Newark, NJ Headquarters and Medina, OH Satellite Office, these are usually used for in-house product testing or failover servers. In the event FWX Company needs more server power, we have the ability to spin up a cloud instance within seconds using our partnership with Microsoft Azure. Networking to each server is tested prior to becoming operational, FWX Company only uses 1Gbps connection speeds or higher to ensure there is enough speed to send and receive data to our clients.

A comprehensive list of our active equipment is below including the system status on that server.
