Join us for our next DemoFriday, when Plexxi and Iron Mountain demonstrate how they use SDN to deliver a flexible, meshed network for managing transport and packet traffic between multiple data centers.
Iron Mountain provides secure, compliant data center colocation services that rely on highly resilient and redundant facilities: Its flagship data center is in a bunker 220 feet underground with 12-foot-thick limestone ribs between rooms. While virtually impenetrable and highly disaster resilient, the design poses significant challenges for deploying network connectivity.
Join us for our next DemoFriday on July 18, when Plexxi and Iron Mountain show us how to use SDN and high-speed data center interconnects to provide services that leverage large pools of physically distributed resources. The joint DemoFriday will show how they created an optical interconnect between data centers that balances network traffic on inter-data-center links to alleviate congestion and improve utilization. Architecting large-scale, high-performance networks across multi-data-center fabrics requires both high bandwidth and low latency. Andre Viera from Plexxi’s product management division and Raman Sud and Sam Gopal of Iron Mountain’s network services will demonstrate how Iron Mountain uses Plexxi’s optically connected switches to:
- Set up a multisite connection
- Create customer or tenant links
- Load-balance traffic between two data centers
- Monitor traffic flow via Plexxi’s SDN controller
- Drive high-interconnect utilization
Register now and join us during the webcast of the Plexxi and Iron Mountain DemoFriday™ live on Friday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.
