Co-Location facility is a data center where a client can house their servers, networking and data storage equipment, locally or internationally. This service could be for the purpose of central application hosting, or a redundant back-up or disaster recovery solution. The equipment is then interconnected to the public internet or to your Virtual Private Network (VPN) and is protected by a range of security measures and redundancy protocols. By sharing the costs across a facility as a whole, a customer pays a minimal fee and enjoys greater protection.
Extend your corporate LAN by implementing Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), with no need of a VPN client, you simply plug in and are automatically connected to your Corporate LAN using the same IP subnet. In a VPLS, the LAN at each site is extended to the edge of the provider network. The provider network then emulates a switch or bridge, to connect all of the customers LAN?s to a single bridged LAN.
