Not all clouds are created equal
Performance: The First Element of our Business Grade Cloud
For any business that relies on the cloud, speed matters.
That’s why we’ve engineered our cloud around the two main elements that impact its performance: network latency and processing capabilities. Our architects and engineers have designed our Exchange cloud to minimize the former while maximizing the latter.
What’s more, they’ve built visibility and monitoring systems so they can ensure that we meet our targets. And they’ve adopted validation tools from external sources to confirm that we maintain the fastest cloud in the industry.
Minimizing network latency
Datacenter location. One basic cause of latency is the physical distance your data has to travel. Rather than turning to complicated WAN acceleration or complex network configuration, we simply allow our customers to select the datacenter location closest to their end users. And if your users are located in multiple geographies, you can place each user’s data in the datacenter closest to them.
Network backbone. We connect our datacenters to the Internet via multiple Tier 1 Internet providers like Level 3, UUNet, Sprint, Qwest, Global Crossing and SAVVIS. This minimizes latency by physically reducing the distance your data has to travel to reach your end users. Within our datacenters, we guarantee the highest level of network throughput and lowest latency by operating on Cisco’s 10 gig Nexus platform.
