Inter-Data Center Connection Datasheet
In order to support customers who require geographic diversity of their IT infra-structure, NTT America offers Layer 2 VPN connectivity between its data centers. Based on the NTT America VLink Layer 2 Virtual Private Network, the solution combines the flexibility and scalability of Layer 3 technology while incorporating the fixed logical traffic paths and management capabilities associated with Layer 2. This is accomplished by an IP infrastructure using Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS). Connection speeds range from 100 MB to 1 GB, standard, with speeds available up to 10 GB.
Standard PoP architecture uses Juniper and Cisco equipment, with Cisco 6509s terminating to each Juniper T640 router with one or more 10GigE uplink connections.
Typical Customer Uses
- Customers with a virtual private network divided between data centers – typically this would be customers with multiple servers, in at least two data centers
- Customer-managed or NTT America-managed activities such as data migration, backup, replication, and disaster recovery
- Companies looking to use internet-based connectivity without exposing their data to the perceived risks of sending data over the public Internet
- An alternative to private line circuits between data centers
