DC Matrix, a colocation provider with a Tier III data center located in the vicinity of the Sao Paulo, Brazil, financial district, has announced the activation of its first international fiber network. The one-terabit international fiber connection will provide redundant, direct connectivity from Sao Paulo to data centers and financial institutions in Miami and New York City.
IP data-intensive users, such as CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) would receive unmatched performance through DC Matrix’s new, dedicated fiber connection, which reduces the latency in international connections by 40%, according to DC Matrix.
“The transmission capacity of a dedicated, one-terabit optical fiber, such as ours, is remarkable,” said Eber Lacerda, Jr., Chief Operating Officer of DC Matrix. “Our customers will now experience a significant reduction of ‘hops,’ resulting in much faster, more reliable, and more flexible connections.”
In addition to being a carrier-neutral Tier III data center with an international fiber network, DC Matrix has been a Point of Interconnection (PIX) for PTT.br since 2011. The company’s data center has a dedicated cross-connect section, where the majority of the large Brazilian fiber carriers and global carriers maintain their presence.
As a PIX data center, DC Matrix has the ability to offer strategic partnerships to companies with a high demand for IP bandwidth. This allows DC Matrix‘s Brazil-based customers to interconnect with the 600 PTT.br participants via local Ethernet connections, thereby significantly reducing their IP data usage costs. DC Matrix’s new dedicated fiber link to Miami and New York will now extend this cost-saving benefit to customers in the US.
