You can have the best hardware in your on-premises or off-site data center, but if your data center connectivity solutions are not optimized for your business, you can still struggle with maintaining reliable productivity.
Today, most companies spread their workload between in-house resources, cloud services and colocation data centers. As the number of connection points increases, so does the importance of maintaining fast and reliable connections. This has become even more important as users work remotely or in distributed environments.
Information that is delayed has a demonstrable impact on productivity. A delay of just one second may not be noticeable to a user but it can impact their train of thought and slow them down. Any longer delays, and they may move on to other tasks.
Amazon and Google did some number crunching. Amazon estimated that a one-second delay in returning data to users would cost the company $1.6 billion a year in sales. Google estimated that a delay of four-tenths of a second would result in 8 million fewer searches and advertising impressions every day.
So the right data center connectivity solutions for access to your data are essential. LOGIX Fiber Networks offers several data center services for reliable, fast and optimal connectivity, including LOGIX Business Internet, LOGIX Business Ethernet, LOGIX Business Wavelength LOGIX Cloud Connect and LOGIX SD-WAN Secure
What Does Carrier-Neutral Mean?
Most data centers are carrier-neutral, which means that you can choose which network service provider you want to do business with. Many companies select multiple carriers at their data centers for redundancy, and to mitigate connectivity downtime.
LOGIX offers carrier-neutral data center services at its colocation data centers in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Austin. LOGIX also has connectivity at nearly 100 third-party data centers throughout Texas.
In a carrier-neutral data center, you can connect directly to your network service provider with an on-net provider such as LOGIX for a fast and reliable data center service.
LOGIX Business Internet
LOGIX Business Internet provides lightning-fast, symmetrical data center connectivity on the LOGIX built-for-business fiber network. With more than 290,000 fiber miles of connectivity throughout Texas and direct connections to more than 10,000 businesses, 3,000 enterprise buildings and nearly 100 data centers, LOGIX provides reliable data center connectivity solutions with exceptional uptime.

- Ethernet Local Area Network (E-LAN)
LOGIX Business Ethernet also provides optimal network uptime, throughput and performance.
LOGIX Business Wavelength
When you need to manage large data transfers between locations and data centers, LOGIX Business Wavelength can easily handle your large data payloads for a fast workflow to help ensure business continuity and network redundancy, with a cost-effective alternative to leasing dark fiber.

LOGIX Cloud Connect is a reliable, fast and secure data center service to connect your data center to cloud service providers (CSPs).
- Increased security and low latency (compared to internet-based connectivity to CSPs).
- Potential cost-efficiencies vs. internet-based connectivity.
- Scalable for changing business needs, peak demand or seasonality.
LOGIX SD-WAN Secure
LOGIX SD-WAN Secure lets you manage your data center connectivity more efficiently to branch offices, remote, and mobile users. You can dynamically steer priority applications, manage data center traffic, use multiple connectivity options, and protect your entire network with a single platform.
Not only can you handle network management and security from one pane of glass, but you can eliminate the need to manage multiple platforms, vendors, or physical edge security. Whether you opt to use one of the LOGIX Fiber Networks data centers or data center services from LOGIX at one of the nearly 100 third-party data centers in Texas, you get the speed and performance you need to keep your business connected.
