A colocation facility is an environmentally-controlled, secure facility with 24 hour monitoring and an uninterruptible power supply. Businesses use these datacenters in order to store company data in an off-site location. Additionally, many of these facilities have a wide variety of carriers and service providers available allowing for redundancy and diversity.
Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a standardized protocol allowing high performance connectivity between multiple locations. MPLS enables the creation of a secure network with Quality of Service (QoS) support. QoS allows for prioritization of latency sensitive traffic such as VoIP and video ahead of the non-critical data traffic. MPLS networks allow for fully meshed, low latency, cost effective WAN connectivity.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Many premise based services including firewalls and web filtering have moved to the cloud due to ease of management and cost effectiveness. A common deployment is a network managed firewall (NMF) enabling businesses to take advantage of sophisticated threat protection including intrusion and virus protection and web filtering capabilities.
