Over 700Gbit of protected global capacity and 1.2Tbps bandwidth in every single rack.
The reliability, capacity and quality of the Micron21 network is paramount. With millions of people accessing our data centre and information services each day, it is essential that the network performs at the highest level. Our network is never flooded or oversaturated.
We only provide DDoS-protected high-performance and extremely low latency bandwidth. With world class redundancy and network capability, we peer with over 1800 providers globally – a figure that continues to grow each month.
Closer to home, AS38880 is currently ranked second in Australia out of over 2,100 competing networks. There are several factors that consolidate the Micron21 network as a premium technology ecosystem.
Our network hosts and provides services for many media organizations, large public and private corporations, government departments and some of Australia's largest ISPs. Each one demands the ability to distribute content with guaranteed predictability and optimum outcomes: extremely quickly, across Australia and the world.
The Micron21 network is vastly peered, with expansive capacity.
As a means of leveraging our network capacity, we recommend multiple uplinks within each rack.
Each rack features two switches to transfer data back to two fully independent routers in the data centre.
Each router within the Micron21 Data Centre features two carrier-independent connections to the internet.
Additionally, each router connects to a second data centre in the Melbourne CBD via our privately owned dark fibre network. This second Melbourne site maintains an additional two carrier-independent connections to the internet. The Micron21 network also extends to a third data centre in the Sydney CBD via layer-2 links.
All data centre networks – Kilsyth, Melbourne and Sydney – peer with major carriers and peering exchanges to guarantee rapid routes. The Micron21 network features multiple international paths to protect against isolation from the greater internet as a result of failed sub-marine cables.
The Micron21 network directly connects with over 1,800 peers both domestically and internationally. The network features over 700Gbps of bandwidth and employs domestic and international DDoS scrubbing hardware appliances for comprehensive protection. A dedicated engineering team works around the clock to ensure premium availability and performance.
Harness a wide variety of benefits with the Micron21 AS38880 network. Enjoy security, support and industry-accredited enterprise grade infrastructure, along with the highest quality and latest technology.
Our network, servers and physical facilities are supervised full-time: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
All Micron21 infrastructure is managed both physically and through third-party digital monitors. At any given moment, we can access detailed real-time insight into the status of our network configuration.
We offer a range of additional protective services for especially sensitive data or servers. Micron21 support engineers monitor all switches to ensure the complete integrity of our connectivity.
The Micron21 network is multihomed to relieve congestion, enhance throughput and ensure redundancy. Further measures safeguard the integrity and reliability of our network hardware.
Our network has been independently stress tested and purpose designed to allow enormous amounts of capacity for customers who require premium network services and core connectivity. We provide industry-leading redundancy, low latency, security and network capacity across the world.
AS38880 is supported with multiple redundant routers positioned throughout the world, in places of high interconnectivity to provide maximum reach to global peers. We use a combination of both Brocade MLXe X2 and Extreme SLX 9640 routers supporting millions of global IPv4 and IPv6 BGP routes along with Juniper SRX hardware firewalls, and A10 and NSFOCUS security appliances configured in 2N (full redundancy) across the entire network.
Within Australian our domestic network utilises a Cisco EVPN BGP Multi Site platform delivering native VXLAN and Any Cast gateway features to every customer connected to our network. Our datacentre core network utilizes a pair of fully redundant Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Spine Switches to create a spine-leaf fabric datacentre architecture. Our Cisco 9500 platform supports up to 400G Ethernet connections per physical port connected to our leaf fabric. Our leaf fabric consists of a pair of Cisco Nexus 93180YC top of rack switches within each rack connected via 6 x 100G redundant paths to each spine, providing a total capacity of 1.2 Terrabits.
Each rack is supplied with four independent 32 amp power feeds from four independent UPS systems and fitted with dedicated Vertiv Extreme Density independent top-of-rack cooling units.
The Micron21 certified Tier IV Data Centre is equipped with 3N permanent Cummins diesel generators for continuous power.
Micron21 is a carrier-neutral data centre. We also own and operate one of the most connected peered networks in Australia. Our 700gbit+ DDoS protected network spans the globe, directly connected to more than 1800 major domestic and international carriers including some of the below networks:
