Data Replication

We know data – and understand its indispensable value to your operations. That’s why our copy of your data is always synchronized with the targeted data source, giving you the fastest path to restoring your environment in the event of a system failure. For internally hosted customers, we offer offsite data replication to our second data center. For our other customers, we offer a replication service, in which our primary facility functions as the customer’s second site. Also, for C Spire™ fiber customers, we offer synchronous real-time replication – possible only because C Spire™ owns both the data facility and the fiber backbone.

Load Balancers

Load balancers are instrumental in providing you more server space when your traffic rises to demand it, while keeping your costs down when you don’t. We manage data traffic by distributing workloads across multiple servers and resources.

Colocation of your critical IT hardware in the highly secure C Spire™ data facility has many advantages – including a secure environment, network speeds of up to 100Gbps, and a reduction in the cost and time necessary to maintain your IT investment.

Collocation icon

Colocation services can alleviate much of the burden, and cost, that goes with maintaining an internal IT system — such as increasing investments in power supply, connectivity and HVAC, often while dealing with internal physical capacity or access issues.

Purchase your space by the rack, cage or pod. We’re ready to support your colocation needs regardless of size.

Our expert team will walk you through the process of colocating and stay with you throughout your partnership with C Spire™ to provide guidance, insight and engineering support wherever and whenever you need it.
