The Silicon Review
In selecting a provider for a company to outsource their data centers to, or to use as an interconnection hub, businesses have many options. While looking for those options, a term you’re likely to hear is “carrier neutrality,” or “carrier-neutral data center.” When you hear carrier neutrality come up in a conversation about a data center, you should pay attention as carrier neutrality is an essential factor in choosing the right business for your outsourcing. Carrier neutrality, to put it simply, refers to carrier-neutral data centers, or data centers that allow interconnection between many colocation and interconnection providers. Carrier-neutral data centers are not tied to any one service provider (telecommunications, ISP, or other), providing diversity and flexibility for the client seeking service.
