Secure, Always-on Network
High performance and resilient internet connectivity is crucial to providing fast and reliable cloud services. Our network connectivity has unparalleled redundancy and performance, utilizing geographically diverse external fiber paths, distinct fiber entrances, mesh routing, and extensive peering relationships. Actual measured uptime over the past 5 years exceeds 99.998%—even if scheduled maintenance periods are included in the uptime measurements. The network has truly proven itself to be an always-on network.
Security is equally important at every layer and participant in the network. Real-time security ensures threats are stopped cold. Attempted network probing or rejected packets cause senders to be immediately blocked. Separate and independent firewalls dedicated to each storage node combined with security filters inside the switching fabric provide deeper isolation, segmentation, and threat identification and mitigation.
