Data Center

Our data is hosted at one of the largest data centers in the world, the NAP of the Americas. Details can be found here Specifications sheet



Our servers and data are hosted with one of the premier carriers in the world, and are behind multiple levels of security. The NAP of the Americas is also a premier facility for government secure hosting and is built with multiple physical and security protocol layers. The facility also holds a set of root DNS servers, which are regarded as the most important component of the internet architecture. We have developed a great relationship with our hosting provider throughout our growth and expansion periods and have the utmost confidence in our facilities.

Overview

Terremark's flagship facility, the NAP of the Americas®, is one of the most significant telecommunications projects in the world. The Tier-IV facility was the first purpose-built, carrier-neutral Network Access Point and is the only facility of its kind specifically designed to link Latin America with the rest of the world.



Miami has been ranked as one of the top-five best interconnected cities in the world, ahead of San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Terremark's NAP of the Americas makes Miami the only city in the U.S. where Optical, Ethernet, MPLS, Voice and Internet traffic is handed off in a single location.  The NAP of the Americas is located in downtown Miami, an area that has numerous telecommunications carrier facilities, fiber loops, international cable landings and multiple power grids. The convergence of telecommunications infrastructure is why global carriers, ISPs and other Internet-related businesses, educational institutions, and enterprises have chosen to become Terremark clients.



Switching the majority of South America, Central America and the Caribbean's layer-1, layer-2 and layer-3 traffic bound to more than 148 countries in the world, makes the NAP of the Americas the unrivaled gateway to the Americas.



This unique facility provides you with a secure, reliable carrier-neutral facility with direct backbone access to the world's major carriers. Via this massive connectivity, we can deliver to millions of businesses and consumers virtually anywhere in the world any available service from any network service provider in the world.
