Network and datacenters

We have 2 Datacenters

(1) America datacenter, located in USA, Dallas and (2) Europe datacenter, located in Bulgaria, Sofia

RapidShare Web Hosting has decided to use carrier-neutral facilities to host its equipment such as servers and network equipment. Carrier-neutral means we can have a network setup that utilizes our own routers and switches and we can have cross-connects with selected bandwidth providers which meet our expectations about quality and reliability.
