Infrastructure

Mythic Beasts have facilities in six data centres.

In London, we have a multiple racks in each of Equinix LD8 at 6/7 Harbour Exchange Square (HEX), Digital Realty Sovereign House (SOV) and Digital Realty Memaco House (MER). These are each located in the London Docklands, south of Canary Wharf. Having racks in three locations allows customers to place equipment in physically separate locations with independently routed network connectivity.

In 2007, we established a presence in Redstone's Cambridge data centre. With increasing London data centre prices making hosting in Docklands prohibitively expensive for many applications, this has allowed us to continue to offer a wide range of services catering for all power and bandwidth requirements.

In 2018 we acquired small presences in Equinix AM5 in Amsterdam, and Hurricane Electric Fremont 2 in California.

All of the data centres we operate in are dedicated facilities, with generator-backed UPS systems to provide power in the event of a mains failure.

Our Network

Mythic Beasts run a fully autonomous network, AS44684, with multiple geographically-diverse 10Gbps transits and multiple 10Gbps connections to peering on Linx and Lonap. In each of our three London data centres we have a redundant pair of routers connected to separate switches on separate power feeds. We run a dark fibre ring around these three sites which we use to provide a public 10Gbps network ring between sites. All traffic between sites on this ring is free. We also use our fibre ring to provide some customers with their own CWDM frequencies which can be lit at 10Gbps or 40Gbps and used by customers to run their internal networks, electrically isolated from our network infrastructure.

Our Cambridge facility is connected via two geographically diverse links to SOV and HEX, each originating from a different suite, router, switch and power bar within our Cambridge facility.

At present, the network in Amsterdam and Fremont is entirely separate to the core Mythic Beasts' network.

Transit

Mythic Beasts can provide full or partial IPV4 transit to any customer located within Telecity SOV, HEX or MER.

Peering

Mythic Beasts operate an open peering policy, and accept peering via LINX, LoNAP or via private peering.
