Internap offers its 3,700 enterprise clients a complete package of high-performance IP networking, data centre colocation, and content delivery network (CDN) services.

Internap deploys patented MIRO (Managed Internet Route Optimiser™) technology to enhance customer data communications. MIRO monitors the performance of Internet backbones and automatically selects the best path to global destinations, thus providing maximum reliability and low-latency data and content delivery.
“Interxion brings all the ingredients our customers need together under one roof in London,” said Daniel Beazer, General Manager, Internap UK. “Our customers have access to the latest high-specification space, an exceptional platform for our IP networking and CDN services and, with 13 megawatts of power, the data centre can easily meet our customers’ medium-to-high power capacity requirements.”
