How Important Is My Data Storage Location?

2nd May, 2019 by

Fundamentally, everything you see, send, or create on the internet is nothing more than binary bits of data, that is zeros and ones, sent around the globe at incredibly fast speeds. Data packets are requested, sent, and confirmed in milliseconds, especially when streaming content like music, video, or gaming is involved. All of the packets whizzing around the globe cope with two basic concepts when determining how fast data can arrive: distance and speed.

Speed represents bandwidth or how fast data can travel through the pipe. Distance is how far that data has to travel. Therefore, higher speeds and shorter distances allow your data to arrive more quickly. Luckily, 100TB has both of these important aspects completely covered to put your data where it needs to be at lightning speed.


Why you need a global infrastructure:

Global data center locations allow you to choose how far your data travels to your target audience. For example, 100TB has 14 data center locations in North America, with additional locations across five continents to give you rapid and dependable data transfer, no matter where the request originates. Each of our data centers meets 100TB security, redundancy, and emergency standards to be sure that you receive industry-leading services from any of our 29 locations.  

While data can’t travel faster than the speed of light with today’s fiber-optic cable networks, we can do our best to be sure that we are as close to top speed as possible. By reducing latency and distributing data locally, we can cut data delivery speeds. For example, data covers much less distance from London to Paris than from Singapore to Paris. 100TB’s data center locations let you control your data delivery speeds. Similarly, our global footprint also allows for additional redundancy should a data center experience delays or outages.
