- Private non-shared connection
- End-to-end encryption possible
- Suitable for sensitive data
Many of Smartdc’s larger clients are connected to the datacenter with a private glassfiber connection. A private glassfiber creates an extremely fast and safe connection between the client’s office and the datacenter. One of the main advantages of a private fiber connection is the guaranteed performance it offers. The other main reason to choose private glassfiber is the fact that the data does not pass the public internet. This is a very safe way to transfer data, especially when combined with data encryption.
When choosing a corporate fiber connection, there are multiple options. The most common solution is to purchase one or more wavelengths. Fiber wavelengths offer speeds up to 10Gbps, with a guaranteed bandwidth: there is no interference from other users on the connection.
The most safe and reliable way to connect to the datacenter is through a dark fiber connection. Using this type of connection, the client only purchases the glass fiber connection. The client has to arrange its own hardware to light the fiber.
Smartdc has a lot of experience with realising dark fiber connections, and we can advise you about the possibilities. Smartdc has its own on-site network operating center (NOC), with skilled experts who can help you set up your connection, and advise and assist in case of unexpected problems with the dark fiber connection.
