IX.br connects to the country’s major metropolitan centers, including Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, as well into the countries surrounding Brazil in South America. The exchange handles a peak of about 986Gbps, with an average of 653.07Gbps.

The added network peering augments Host Virtual’s present Tier III datacenter presence in Brazil, located at Equinix SP2 in Sao Paulo.

SANTA MONICA, CA (PRWEB) AUGUST 24, 2015

With the added peering options of the Seattle Internet Exchange, Host Virtual expands the connectivity of its Seattle datacenter for its customers.

In Seattle, home turf of Amazon, Microsoft and Cheezburger, connections are everything — and Host Virtual’s datacenter in the city is now connected to the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX).

SIX was originally established in April 1997 as a private interconnection of traffic between Seattle and Texas between two ISPs in the same facility. In the 18 years since it was founded, SIX crossed an aggregate peak traffic milestone of 400 Gbps this month and has 196 members.

Host Virtual’s location in Seattle is located at the Sabey Technology Campus Facility, the largest private internet wholesale data center provider in North America. Microsoft, Oracle, Chase Manhattan, and University of Washington are also at the same campus.

“Joining the Seattle Internet Exchange means we can provide our customers with greater peering options in one of the most connected tech centers in the world,” said Sandy Bhargavi, Host Virtual’s Senior Vice President. “This peering offers better connectivity to not just the Seattle area, but also the U.S. Northwest and the surrounding area. We’re very pleased to be able to be able to provide this network expansion to our customers. Host Virtual aggressively upgrades its connectivity and hardware to ensure our customers have the best service, no matter what their needs are.”
Connection with SIX is available immediately for Host Virtual’s customers.
