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. This DemoFriday™ shows how, along with Plexxi's help, Iron Mountain uses SDN and high-speed optical data center interconnects to architect large-scale, high-performance data center fabric network across multiple data center sites.
Plexxi and Iron Mountain Data Center Fabric Demo Synopsis:
Successfully providing services that leverage large pools of physically distributed resources requires both high bandwidth and low latency. Plexxi and Iron Mountain 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.
Iron Mountain’s flagship data center design, a bunker 220 feet underground with 12-feet-thick limestone ribs between rooms, poses significant challenges for deploying network connectivity. This DemoFriday reveal how they used SDN and high-speed optical data center interconnects to architect large-scale, high-performance data center fabric network across multiple data center sites.
Join Andre Viera from Plexxi product management and Raman Sud of Iron Mountain’s network services as they demonstrate how Iron Mountain uses Plexxi’s optically connected switches and SDN Controller to build a data center fabric and:
- 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
