• 3 redundant submarine Fiber Optic Connections to RACSA (Costa Rica ISP) Internet Backbone.
  • Direct Gigabit Ethernet 1000 Mbps Full Duplex between Data Center Switch and the Costa Rica Internet backbone

Network Redundancy

Fiber optic connections reach Costa Rica on both coasts via three submarine cables that provide the majority of bandwidth to Costa Rica. Access to all three backbones, ACOS-1, MAYA-1 and Pan American Crossing (PAC) , provide real time failover and redundancy at the facility. Direct connections to upstream carriers (Columbus Networks, Sprint, Level 3 Communications and XO Communications) grant that no single point of failure is present in network as connections. The network employs BGP to assure all traffic reaches its destination if one connection fails. These routes from suppliers to the datacenter do not share equipment or exit routes. Communications transport to international connections is made fully redundant and supported in two locations , the main building in San Jose and the Teleport in Calle Blancos, approximately 7 kms away.

Costa Rica Servers benefits form this connectivity infrastructure, which includes private peering network connections to major Internet carriers. These private peering arrangements allow the network to quickly and efficiently exchange packets of data with every major backbone carrier in a one-to-one environment.

Network Reliability

With this network, circuit failure is virtually eliminated as we are within the fiber optic network of RACSA.We We have backup network routers, switches, hubs and servers to avoid hardware failures. We use only the most reliable network products. Our routing network is 100% Cisco Systems and Sun Microsystems. Network and servers are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
