How fast is the network connection?
All Mac minis located in our cabinets (model year 2010 and newer) are connected to Cisco gigabit switch stacks. Each gigabit switch stack has redundant fiber connections to redundant core switches which are a pair of Cisco 6509′s. All of our core switches are networked in a redundant high speed 10G fiber layout to our edge routers. You can test your network connection to our data center here. Our Mac mini colocation cabinets have redundant access to all 13Gbps of fiber coming into the building.
Peak transfer speeds will depend on the connection at the other end of the transfer and the path it takes. Peak transfer speeds are only temporary and long term transfer rates are reflected in the ‘sustained’ transfer rates listed in our packages.
