seamlessly on a high-speed network

Ensure dynamic and instant access to critical data​

Data center interconnect (DCI) technology connects two or more data centers to exchange data seamlessly and alsoprovides backup for redundancy. DCI enables enterprises to dynamically tap into both physical and virtual resources across numerous sites, and load-balance their network infrastructure as necessary.

Sify connects 50+ edge data centers pan India on a high-speed network to maximize reach and deliver a superior end-user experience.

Internet Exchange as-a-service offered by Sify gives access to multiple cloud providers, ISPs, CDNs, OTT players, social media networks, enterprises, and national and international telcos under a single umbrella to optimize and enhance network performance.

Key differentiators​

Metro Cross-Connect​

Links Sify’s data centers located within the same metropolitan area with pre-built, high-bandwidth 1G/10G/100G Ethernet. The service offers guaranteed availability and protection with sub-50ms latency. ​

In the Mumbai region, Sify uses Metro Cross-Connect to link its Airoli and Rabale data centers. A similar solution to connect other Sify data centers at Noida, Hyderabad, Bangaluru, and Chennai is in progress.

Service access and Internet Exchange​

Internet Exchange (IX) as a service is a fully managed carrier-neutral service that enables you to interconnect with a multitude of networks directly, across different IXs in India and internationally.

IX as-a-service is specifically used by providers looking for network optimization, improving network performance and achieving low-latency with cost-effective interconnection. AMS-IX, Extreme-IX, DE-CIX, SP-IXP, and NiXi are hosted with Sify across India.

Data Center Interconnect

Sify DCI provisioning is fast and seamless. The high-speed network features next-generation architecture for Ethernet VPN and Ethernet OAM with automatic failover, delivering enterprise-class resiliency and up to 99.99% uptime.

Disaster recovery – whether mandated or highly desired by industries to safeguard operations and assets – is another big reason data center interconnect Ethernet services are popular among users.
