Building and managing an on-site data center is expensive. Not only do you have to buy the servers and equipment to support your infrastructure; you also have to build a redundant infrastructure to support and maintain that equipment. You also have the responsibility for all related power, cooling, monitoring and maintenance.
With a colocation data center, you share infrastructure costs with other users of the data center, which can lead to significant savings. Other benefits of colocation include:
- A reliable, redundant infrastructure with backup and diverse power.
- Reduced operational costs such as power, cooling and routine maintenance.
- Redundant network connections.
- Flexibility with bursting capacity for data spikes.
- Scalability for adding floor space as needed.
Redundant, Flexible Colocation Data Center Services from LOGIX Fiber Networks
Using a colocation data center and housing your servers and networking equipment in a LOGIX data center provides a cost-efficient secure, redundant infrastructure and enables access to other data center services.
LOGIX operates data centers in major Texas markets, including Austin, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth.
At any of the LOGIX data centers, you receive direct access to LOGIX or third-party carriers to provide redundant connectivity. With a carrier-neutral facility, you can choose the connectivity options you want.
LOGIX colocation data centers have tight physical security to prevent unauthorized access. Within each facility, you can have dedicated cabinets, cages or private suites.
Colocation services include redundant electrical power and cooling environments to deliver exceptional uptime with uninterrupted power. LOGIX data centers feature a 100% uptime service-level agreement on power. A/B diverse power feeds are available to your colocation area to leverage flexible power configurations.
Remote Hands Support and Monitoring
LOGIX offers remote hands support, providing certified data-center engineers that can perform tasks for you on-site, such as resetting a server or upgrading your equipment. In addition, LOGIX provides 24/7 year-round monitoring for security and performance.
Meet Compliance Standards
LOGIX data centers enable HIPAA and PCI compliance standards. Data centers are SSAE-18 audited and SOC compliant to SOC 1, Type II and SOC 2, Type II.
Data Center Services: Reliable Network Connectivity
LOGIX offers reliable network connectivity options to its colocation data centers and nearly 80+ third-party data centers, including LOGIX Business Internet, LOGIX Business Ethernet, LOGIX Business Wavelength LOGIX Cloud Connect and LOGIX SD-WAN.
LOGIX Business Internet
LOGIX Business Internet accommodates heavy internet traffic and data-flow connectivity for your data center resources and lightning-fast symmetrical upload and download speeds.
With a state-of-the-art core backbone, multiple fiber rings in major Texas markets and diverse Tier-1 internet peering points, LOGIX Business Internet delivers fast, reliable internet access on a fiber network built for business.
LOGIX Business Ethernet
LOGIX Business Ethernet delivers a secure private network solution for site-to-site connectivity that requires high performance. LOGIX offers three connectivity configurations aligning to MEF 2.0 certification standards.
- Ethernet Private Line (EPL)
- Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)
- Ethernet Local Area Network (E-LAN)
LOGIX Business Ethernet provides optimal network uptime, throughput and performance.
LOGIX Business Wavelength
LOGIX Business Wavelength provides a private fiber connection to connect to data centers and enterprises across Texas. With a full range of speeds up to 100 Gbps, you get enhanced business continuity and network redundancy without having to light and manage leased dark fiber.
LOGIX Business Wavelength provides dedicated full bandwidth between locations and supports load sharing, multiple connections and diverse (redundant) routing.
LOGIX Cloud Connect
LOGIX Cloud Connect provides private, direct and secure access to leading cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services(AWS) Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud and Google Cloud Platform.
With LOGIX Cloud Connect, you get secure, scalable and ultra-fast connections with low latency to your applications in the cloud. With direct connections vs. internet-based connectivity, you get a better-quality connection and can realize potential cost efficiencies.
LOGIX SD-WAN Secure
Data center connectivity can also be enhanced using LOGIX SD-WAN Secure. With traditional networking like MPLS, traffic is backhauled to a central location before connecting to the data center. This can introduce latency and lower application performance. MPLS may also struggle to handle large volume of traffic, such as use of cloud resources.
SD-WAN can manage multiple connections (including MPLS) and route traffic over the best path in real time. This allows forwarding on internet or cloud traffic directly from branches or remote location to the data center without backhauling.
