Connectivity and Collocation

In the middle of the 5 C’s ecosystem, Connectivity and Collocation provide the foundation for an organization’s cloud computing strategy. Whether the cloud solution is public or private, hosted internally or externally (or both) the connection to the data becomes more important as the move to the cloud accelerates. If your data infrastructure is replicated or hosted at a NAN collocation center it must be available at all times and with no exceptions. NAN provides enterprise level data center facilities, and offers solutions to reliably and consistently access your data or communicate effectively across your organization’s WAN for both data and voice applications.

NAN provides access to the latest Ethernet technology with options for rate limiting, real time data commitments, flat rate and bursting and meshed applications. NAN can also provide legacy T1, NxT1 and T3 connectivity to those locations that do not have access to Ethernet or where it is cost prohibitive. NAN can provide MPLS networks across different technology and is not tied to any particular carrier when it builds it solutions. NAN is interconnected with all major carriers and can offer a solution using the best available and most cost effective resource across all of its carrier partners.

NAN has data center facilities located in industry leading locations in Boston, Cambridge, Waltham and Marlboro, and has direct access to facilities throughout the United States. For those clients who also enjoy connectivity services with NAN, access speeds the the collocation centers are exceptionally fast and user access to cloud data will experience very low latency. Many clients who choose to keep some physical operations in-house also located resources in a NAN collocation facility for increased redundancy.

Our focus on the core elements that today’s businesses need has led to the development of NAN’s 5 C’s:

The foundation for communication must be reliable and efficient. NAN emphasizes a high-availability, redundant solution, using a cost effective backup link and automatic failover. Relationships with major carriers and technology solutions ensure NAN can provide 10G DIA and MPLS via Ethernet, legacy T1, NxT1 and T3 circuits, wireless links, or any combination thereof.

Cloud Computing is the transformative shift underway in the IP market. NAN offers its clients a wide range of cloud and managed services including VMware based infrastructure solutions, VoIP solutions, Network Based Firewall, Hosted Exchange, Lync and SharePoint, Cisco router, firewall and switch management and many others.

The increased dependency upon technology has heightened the need for disaster recovery, business continuity and redundancy plans. NAN can provide various solutions to provide peace of mind that include VEEAM and Zerto replication and backup, cold, warm, and hot VMware instances, SRM solutions, collocation options and pure backup.

For the client who requires a hardware presence for a public, private or hybrid cloud, NAN offers collocation services at multiple locations. Each location offers state of the art backup and redundancy options for power, IP access, and multi-carrier connectivity.
