EarthLink Offers Private MPLS Access for Cloud Services

EarthLink is introducing a Data Center Connect option that enables clients to leverage the EarthLink private MPLS network to access the cloud by interconnecting one or more sites to EarthLink SSAE 16 SOC 2 compliant data centers.

The Data Center Connect service ensures that the client's application traffic between the data center and the MPLS network is protected by redundant paths and infrastructure, enhancing service availability and improving the value derived from each cloud-based service. EarthLink said its Data Center Connect service also offers a special burst on demand option that can double the port speed on demand, delivering network flexibility that scales when needed.

The EarthLink Data Center Connect  service honors Service Level Agreements (SLAs) up to the full burst bandwidth, ensuring that the bandwidth is always available and Class of Service policies are fully supported. Every EarthLink MPLS connection includes 10 Mbps of bandwidth to a data center, allowing customers to build out their cloud infrastructure on a phased basis, adding additional bandwidth as needed.
