More and more, enterprises are adopting Cloud computing, virtualization and big data to support ongoing business operations and objectives, causing computing environments to grow more complex – placing a growing strain on traditional hierarchical network architectures. These mounting bandwidth and scalability demands require today’s enterprises to have high performance networks that are cost-efficient, reliable and agile.
Pacnet, Asia-Pacific’s leading provider of managed data connectivity solutions understands this and has answered the call with the beta launch of a new paradigm in networking, the Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN). Powered by Pacnet’s innovative Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) model, PEN is a service platform that leverages Software-Defined Networking (SDN) to deliver flexible and scalable bandwidth configurable by customers – the first of its kind in the industry. PEN gives customers the ability to customize, configure and monitor network-based on their specific performance and quality of service (QoS) needs via an API or Pacnet Connect, the company’s web-based customer portal. Unlike traditional service agreements, PEN’s flexible pricing model also allows customers to pay only for the amount, quality and duration of bandwidth used.
Built on Pacnet’s wholly owned, enterprise-class network of robust data centers and telecommunications infrastructure throughout Asia-Pacific, PEN provides customers with extensive coverage, high performance and reliable connectivity throughout the region. The platform also utilizes OpenFlow, giving enterprise customers the flexibility to extend their data center or private cloud to the external cloud vendor of their choice in the Pacnet network.
Pacnet will host a live demonstration of PEN at the OpenStack Hong Kong Summit 2013 in Asia World-Expo on Tuesday, November 5 at 6:20 PM local time.
