FileLAN Network & Infrastructure Overview

We Own Our Cloud Infrastructure

To power all of the services we offer at FileLAN, there are many infrastructure requirements both on terms of equipment and bandwidth. Unlike many providers who simply rent a few servers, we own our all of the equipment used to deliver service from servers, routers, firewalls, switches, etc. up to the point of data hand-off blended to multiple tier one Internet providers. This allows us to ensure any required maintenance is quickly addressed without waiting on a third party and maintain complete security oversight on traffic passing our network.

Why Host In Michigan?

Making the decision where to host your cloud services for primary and secondary sites requires taking in to account many aspects including regards to location of the hosting datacenter. Some of the top concerns in relation to the location of the hosting datacenter are regional connectivity, latency to major Internet exchange points, natural disaster probability, energy generation capacity and sustainability, and local climate to name a few. Below is a small list of reasons to choose hosting in Michigan.

- Michigan is one of the lowest disaster risk index states in the United States (USGS)

- Low latency access to major Internet exchanges of Chicago & New York

- Hydro electric, wind, and nuclear sustainable power generation throughout

- Strong industrial base contributing to growth in regional data infrastructure

- Cooler climate making cooling of equipment more efficient (Long cold season)

- Content delivery at low latency from the Mid West to the East Cost

- Highly technical workforce in transition to information service careers

Lower total cost of operation due to multiple factors allows us to offer higher quality services at a more competitive rate then other providers
