    Data center neutral to Singapore and US West Coast?

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a quality data center that has reasonable connection speeds from both Seattle and Singapore? I am looking to get a dedicated server or VPS so a client with offices in both locations can access the server reasonably fast. Users will be using Remote Desktop on a Windows platform, so low latency is a plus.

    Thoughts on where I should start looking?
    A serial entrepreneur is someone who effectively manages startups within their means to manage them, not someone who runs 30 different business ideas at once hoping one works. If I wanted to hire someone to throw things at a wall to see what sticks, I'd hire a two year old.

    The majority of the overseas fiber terminates in Los Angeles, so that would be a good place to start... Look for someone with PCCW/BTN in the network mix, they have great connectivity to Asia.

    I believe Pacific Rack in LA has PCCW in their mix.

    Good luck!

    We are colo'ing inside Netriver, and having great network performance to ASIAN. Netriver has NTT and PCCW in mix, so the network will fit into your requirement.

    also check for direct singtel peering for whichever DC you choose. bottom line seattle even if the carrier is through a hop does not make much difference

    Thanks, I like that suggestion. Any other providers that offer that bandwidth anyone can suggest?

    CoreSite runs Market Post Tower in San Jose. Might be worth checking out.

    We've been working with CoreSite/CRG West for awhile in San Jose and have had a good experience.

    Connection with PCCW will be great, they have extensive connection in Asia and Singapore.
