CoLo-Collect & Connect

VIRTUS CoLo-Collect & Connect offers a migration colocation solution to meet your growing requirements. If customers have a small migration requirement for existing IT equipment already deployed, then the CoLo-Collect & Connect solution may be of benefit. VIRTUS will enter the customer’s premises, safely and securely collect their IT equipment, transport it to a VIRTUS data centre and install/connect within a shared data hall, ready for the customer to go live.

Peering

Learn More

VIRTUS’ customers benefit from being able to connect with The London Internet Exchange (LINX). This gives customers the benefit of reduced latency, increased resilience, improved transit performance and routing control as well as increased capacity and redundancy at lower cost. LINX is a mutually owned membership association for operators of Internet Protocol networks. They provide a neutral interconnection facility and peering platform, known as an Internet Exchange Point (IXP).

  • Over 580 members
  • Over 2.3 Tb/sec of peak traffic
  • In 63 countries

As a result of the partnership, VIRTUS has become an official LINX Virtual PoP (vPoP). A LINX vPoP is a data centre located anywhere in the world that has a direct route back to a main LINX PoP and any LINX operated Internet Exchange Point. VIRTUS’ customers will benefit from being able to connect with other LINX members and exchange low cost internet traffic without the need to have equipment at a main LINX PoP. VIRTUS Data Centre customers, who already have access to VIRTUS’ broad ecosystem of network and cloud service providers, will now have the opportunity to peer with over 580 LINX members from over 63 countries worldwide.
