Miami, Florida Data Center

Data Center Details

The NAP of the Americas data center is located in downtown Miami, and is home to a broad range of networks and interconnection partners. Miami is a key destination point for multiple global submarine cable systems, making it one of the top five most-connected cities in the world. Providers deployed in Miami can quickly and affordably access leading Latin American networks, reducing latency for the South and Central American end users.

 The NAP of the Americas facility serves as a critical network hub for internet traffic coming to and from Latin America and the Caribbean.

Located in downtown, this data center is structurally designed to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds and is outside both the 500-year flood plain and the Miami-Dade hurricane evacuation zone.
