As data center customers look for easier ways to build networks and increase their interconnection options, we’re witnessing a trend whereby some forward-thinking connectivity service providers are integrating more network functions into the cloud to gain centralized network management, visibility and control. The objective is to enable enterprises to quickly create networks that have sufficient levels of reliability, security and scalability without incurring large infrastructure investments or committing to long-term service agreements.
To that end, has deployed Software-defined Networking (SDN) platform at four of its strategically located data centers, including 325 Hudson Street, New York; 401 North Broad Street, Philadelphia; 717 South Wells Street, Chicago; and 1301 Fannin Street, Houston. Gaining the ability to dynamically design and efficiently deploy any network configuration leveraging PacketFabric’s cloud-based network connectivity, Netrality customers at any of these four facilities will now enjoy increased interconnection options and be better positioned to meet their future network demands.
“The addition of PacketFabric’s SDN platform is a strategic enhancement to our connectivity ecosystem, benefiting current and future Netrality customers,” stated Joshua W. Maes, COO of Netrality Properties, about the development. “PacketFabric’s dynamic service offering affords our customers scalable, reliable and secure access to network and cloud environments — a critical piece of any enterprise’s data center solution today.”
PacketFabric, a company, enables dynamic, real-time connectivity services between major carrier-neutral colocation facilities at terabit-scale. Its SDN platform provides connectivity between any two or more locations on its network that is instantaneous, reliable, scalable and secure.
William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric, also commented about the availability of his company’s network interconnection platform at the Netrality properties.
“PacketFabric allows Netrality customers to create reliable, secure, and scalable networks quickly and without heavy infrastructure spending or long-term commitment,” remarked Mr. Charnock. “Through a web-based portal and advanced Application Program Interface, our platform makes it easy and flexible to source, provision and manage networking services.”
