Premium Multi-Homed Network

Keeping you online and stable with our premium Multi-Homed uplink to Level3/Lumen with 100 Gbps and our backup uplink to Cogent. Lumen/Level3 delivers highest reliability and lowest latency access to the Internet. See our Bandwidth Data Policy

Always On DDoS Protection

Always on protection is fully automated for all customers adding another layer to protect your servers.   In May 2020, we deployed Corero’s Smartwall DDoS real-time mitigation at the edge of our network. Everything is 100 Gbps which is key to making the system work without bottlenecks, most other providers use 10 Gbps filters. With the equipment directly inside our datacenter this provides the lowest latency and instant protection. Learn more about how our DDoS Protection Works

What is Colocation Server Hosting?

Rather than spending resources to house equipment in on-premises hot server rooms, Oplink.net server colocation hosting involves keeping your business’ hardware in a purpose-built secure and climate controlled data center.

Colocation provides an efficient solution for enterprises needing access to high-quality support staff, cooling systems, racks, power and bandwidth – without the price-tag and headaches associated with running an on-premises facility. There’s also zero hassle involved with the setup. With our colocation plans, you ship us the gear and we’ll take care of all the cabling and rack it up for you.

We take a lot of pride in our racks and cable management.  We use a system called patchbox to keep things clean and easy to manage.  We also custom power cords.
