InfoRelay has differentiated itself from our competitors by connecting to a greater number of networks using the fastest possible connectivity
Ashburn Va. (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
InfoRelay Online Systems, Inc., an IT solutions and connectivity provider, announced a third round of 10 gigabit upgrades. The upgrades include incorporating additional capacity to its upstream providers using multiple 10 gigabit ethernet connections, each providing 10,000Mbps of network burst room per connection.
"InfoRelay has differentiated itself from our competitors by connecting to a greater number of networks using the fastest possible connectivity," said Russell Weiss, Vice President of Technical Services for InfoRelay. Weiss also explained that since today's consumer broadband networks are getting faster, providing end-users with more capacity to the Internet, companies that provide server collocation, managed hosting, and bandwidth services need to ensure that their networks can handle both standard customer traffic as well as large-scale Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks which may be launched with no notice, pushing thousands of megabits of malicious traffic to a specific customer.
InfoRelay plans to leverage Level 3's network to bolster network performance and improve upon redundancy. "After a significant amount of due diligence, the choice became clear to us given Level 3's immense global footprint and solid industry reputation," commented Weiss. While InfoRelay already connects to more than 14 tier 1 and tier 2 networks, as well as additional peers, the addition of connectivity to Level 3 is expected to improve upon network performance and redundancy.
InfoRelay stated that additional 10 gigabit upgrades have been performed in its Reston and Ashburn Virginia data centers, as well as its San Jose facilities. InfoRelay's additional network capacity will allow it to continue to serve large customers that purchase bandwidth via multiple aggregated GigE circuits and standard 10GigE circuits.
