Nexus' Fremont, CA Datacenter is connected to a national backbone that is ranked among the top in the nation. With connections ranging from OC48s (2.4 Gbps) to gigabit ethernet (1,000 Mbps) connections to several major exchange points, (including MAE-West in San Jose, CA; PAIX in Palo Alto, CA; AADS in Chicago, IL; NYIIX in New York, NY; and MAE-East in Vienna, VA) forming rings around the USA our Fremont datacenter has the best level of connectivy.
The self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to the backbone, in place is a backup transit from multiple providers in multiple locations to ensure that data will arrive via the shortest possible route. Because of the backup transit and the many international peers, the network maintains the shortest routes for sending data all over the world. On an ongoing basis, negotiations take place with the top fiber carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers, and updated peering relationships are always being added.
Our peering arrangements include the following exchanges and are ever-growing so do check back for the latest updates here:
The entire network is fully switched and utilizes the Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over Cisco 12000 series GSR routers. This ensures that bandwidth can be routed through the best available carrier giving you seamless connectivity at the same time. We always update the router's IOS after we have stress tested the latest IOS on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that your equipment will ultimately be connected to is connected back to a core router via fiber.
Our Co-location Facility was designed from the ground up to serve data housing needs. Raised floors, individually locked cabinets, advanced climate control and back-up power, custom designed video surveillance of every cabinet, and onsite security measures assure that servers are safe and run optimally. The Data Center is guarded, monitored, and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and was engineered with HVAC environmental systems, digital surveillance, stringent security, conditioned uninterruptible power, and your convenience in mind.
