Data Digitization Drives Enterprise Need for Terabit-Scale Connectivity
We are now in the “terabit era,” with businesses storing and transmitting massive amounts of data, and enterprises requiring access to multi-site, terabit-scale connectivity.
Sabey Data Centers recently announced a major upgrade that will provide terabit-scale connectivity across all of its data centers using PacketFabric’s Software-Defined Networking (SDN) platform. PacketFabric is a provider of next-generation Ethernet-based cloud networking services. Its fully automated network platform facilitates instantaneous, direct and secure provisioning for terabit-scale connectivity between all locations on the PacketFabric network.
PacketFabric’s any-to-any SDN-powered network enables coast-to-coast connectivity across 118 carrier-neutral colocation facilities in 11 major U.S. markets. The platform transmits hundreds of terabits per second with on-demand connectivity across its purpose-built private backbone network. Its innovative architecture enables customers to easily procure and maintain network services in real-time, while reaching hundreds of destinations without the need to deploy and manage costly infrastructure or rely on the public internet.
PacketFabric customers can dynamically design and deploy any network configuration, leveraging an advanced Application Programming Interface (API) and web-based portal for unparalleled visibility and control over network traffic and services. Additionally, its real-time analytics and interactive troubleshooting capabilities help PacketFabric to offer the strength of a packet-switched network while also ensuring consistent and reliable performance.
This solution is now available in Sabey Data Center facilities located in New York (Intergate.Manhattan), Seattle (Intergate.Seattle), Virginia (Intergate.Ashburn) and central Washington State (Intergate.Quincy).
“With PacketFabric, Sabey customers can access scalable, next-generation cloud networking services and more easily provision and maintain network infrastructure,” stated William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric. “The cloud-based logic underpinning the PacketFabric platform also enables users to mitigate the headaches commonly associated with traditional telecommunications solutions, including expensive stranded capacity and long-term, inflexible contracts, and provision scalable network connectivity on a month-to-month or usage-basis.”
Vice President of Sales and Leasing at Sabey Data Centers Daniel Meltzer also commented on the need for multi-terabit connectivity.
“The digitization of data has driven new network requirements for businesses, especially those with vast data demands such as healthcare providers and enterprises,” said Meltzer. “Bringing the PacketFabric platform into our facilities provides Sabey customers with industry-leading infrastructure as well as the ability to instantly provision terabits of capacity to any other network or facility connected by the fabric. This enables fast, secure and seamless data transfer as well as reliable, cost-effective connectivity between multiple regions and data centers across the U.S.”
