Geographic Diversity

Having offered highly connected networking services as well as redundancy throughout our data centers for years, Liquid Web’s Arizona facility allows us to expand upon these features by setting new standards with Geographic Redundancy:

Liquid Web Arizona as a Hot Standby Site

Some disaster situations cannot be mitigated using only local redundancy systems. Similar to fail-over clustering, a hot standby site allows your operation to move to a fully functional standby system should your primary system fail. Additionally, both Liquid Web’s Michigan and Arizona locations are positioned strategically in Disaster Neutral areas of the United States. This is of great value to our customers with critical data who need to remain up and running in the event of even the most unpredictable catastrophic events.

Low Latency to West Coast Locations

While our network continues to grow and enhance its already sterling reputation through expansion, peering and advancement in networking technology; our Arizona location allows us to fast track our ongoing efforts by physically moving your data closer to West Coast hubs. The geographic advantages of this location are easily tangible to any of our customers who need to ensure rapid connection to Western US locations or those who need to maintain full US coverage who can utilize our multiple locations to a significant advantage.
