Architecting large-scale, high-performance networks across multiple data center sites successfully requires both high bandwidth and low latency. In an upcoming DemoFriday featuring Plexxi and colocation provider Iron Mountain, the companies will demonstrate how they use SDN to deliver a flexible, meshed network for managing transport and packet traffic between multi-data center fabrics.
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-feet-thick limestone ribs between rooms. While virtually impenetrable and highly disaster resilient, the design poses significant challenges for deploying network connectivity.
Iron Mountain relies on SDN and high-speed data center interconnects to provide services that leverage large pools of physically distributed resources. On July 18, the DemoFriday with Iron Mountain and Plexxi will show how they created an optical interconnect between multi-data center fabrics leveraging an SDN approach that balances network traffic on inter-data center links to alleviate congestion and improve utilization.
Join Andre Viera from Plexxi’s product management division, and Raman Sud of Iron Mountain’s network services as they demonstrate:
- Setting up a multisite connection
- Creating customer or tenant links
- Load balancing traffic between multi-data center fabrics
- Traffic flow monitoring via Plexxi’s SDN controller
- Congestion alleviation
- How to drive high-interconnect utilization
The demonstration will showcase Plexxi’s optically connected switches built around a contoller-based architecture. Join us for the Plexxi and Iron Mountain DemoFriday™ when we webcast it live on Friday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.
