Leaseweb Network Architecture
Connectivity to Tier 1 internet backbones
Each border router (BR) is connected to multiple Tier 1 internet backbones, such as Telia, Tata, Cogent, GTT, Zayo, and NTT. This contributes to network availability, performance and price/performance.
Leaseweb Global Network (Peering)
With the Leaseweb Global Network we establish direct connectivity from major data centers directly to major internet hubs (Internet Exchanges and Private Network Interconnects) around the world.
Both our internal and public networks have a fully redundant architecture. There is no single point of failure, and above that, we use a dual-vendor policy on ou border routers (BR's).
Any rack at our datacenters also connects to a separate internal network. This enables data exchange at a low cost, with low latency and avoids exposure to cybercrime risk on the internet.
The total edge bandwidth capacity of our networks is over 10 Tbps and continuously growing to keep up with demand. The redundant architecture of our networks results in a 99.999% uptime of our core networks and the connectivity between the server racks and the internet.
Our speedtest servers are iperf3 compatible, for more details click here.

Leaseweb Network Features
To protect our customers against cybercrime, we have deployed technology to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks in all our data centers. We protect all our hosting services with a standard DDoS IP Protection service. Also, we offer customized DDoS IP Protection services that provide accelerated detection and enhanced protection.
For many of our customers, low latency between the Leaseweb services and their customers is of primary importance. To monitor and optimize such latency, we have deployed a system that continuously measures the latency between the major ISPs around the world and the Leaseweb data centers.
Software Defined Networks
To enable the fastest delivery of new services, we have deployed Software Defined Networks (SDN) technology to automate such delivery – contributing to the flexibility our customers need.
To enable our customers to assign hosting services to IP addresses in a flexible way and build high availability setups, we have deployed Floating IP’s – another cornerstone of our hybrid cloud offering.
To further enhance availability while keeping operating costs low, we keep standardizing and automating the configuration of networks – while deploying automated audits to spot and correct deviations.
24x7 Network Operations Teams
To ensure maximum performance and fast responses to incidents, we have deployed 24x7 Network Operations teams in multiple regions.
