Zenlayer maintains extensive relationships with local carriers in the most valuable yet hard-to-reach markets, for top-quality connections. Zenlayer's backbone features a full-mesh, redundant architecture for high availability and scalability as well as programmable traffic engineering that guarantees the lowest possible latency.  

"Today's global enterprises have complex workloads that mandate high-speed, reliable network performance and instant scalability," said David Keasey, Cyxtera's Chief Revenue Officer.
