The data centers are operated as carrier-neutral facilities. With the network Point-of-Presence by i4Networks, companies will be able to get easy and low latency access to Greenhouse’s data centers. i4Networks is a Layer 2 network backbone that is linked at strategic points in the country.
With its links, i4Networks has access up to all zip codes in the Netherlands. Dutch network’s total bandwidth capacity is 100 Gbit/s, while the network is scalable to 1.6 Tbit/s. I4Networks uses Coherent laser technology. Guido Sip, Chief Commercial Officer, Greenhouse Datacenters, said,
“Due to specific requirements regarding security, reliability, and compliance, organizations don’t always opt for connections via the Internet. This is certainly the case with healthcare, the manufacturing industry, government organizations, and the engineering segment. Some opt for SD-WAN to bypass connections over the Internet, while others opt for private connections. For such organizations, the MPLS network offered by i4Networks is a great solution.
MPLS is a proven network technology. It is stable and easy to use and it comes with competitive pricing. Customers also get protection against DDoS attacks through i4Networks’ network. Organizations throughout the Netherlands can use the MPLS network in our data centers for all kinds of applications. For example, to set up backups and other storage solutions, or for deploying cloud-based applications such as Office 365 and Salesforce. It also offers possibilities for hybrid applications, such as a setup with Azure, AWS, or Google, including links to a private cloud. As well as for video surveillance with 8k cameras, which has higher image quality but also requires the processing of larger data streams.”
