Dedicated server and cloud hosting services provider Leaseweb has successfully completed its implementation of the Infinera Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform interconnecting Leaseweb’s data centers in North America.
The Infinera Groove would enable Leaseweb to cost-efficiently scale optical interconnect capacity between its data center facilities in major North American markets while meeting its customers’ business-critical requirements for low latency, high optical performance, and data security in a compact, plug-and-play architecture.
Backed by its network backbone with 6 Tbps of bandwidth capacity available, Leaseweb serves 18,000 customers globally and says it continues to experience yet another year of record growth, “rapidly” expanding its footprint across data centers in major North American cities. Leaseweb Network implemented Infinera’s Groove platform for network scalability reasons, meeting the requirements of its customers that are predominately within the Gaming, MarTech, AdTech, MSP, and SaaS industries.
“The Infinera Groove provides the high reliability, flexibility, and security our data centers need,” said Bart van der Sloot, Leaseweb Network Managing Director. “As we grow our data center locations all over the world, our goal is to continue serving as a key business partner in keeping businesses connected, offering them the peace of mind that our network is powered by best-in-class and cutting-edge optical technology.”

In addition to the implementation in North America, Leaseweb also selected the Infinera Groove platform for data center deployments in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. In combination with its existing presence in Asia, Europe, and Australia, Leaseweb currently has its presence in 20 data centers globally.
“Security and performance in the cloud are valued by virtually every end-user market segment,” said Pete Dale, Vice President, Cloud and Content Sales, Infinera. “Companies like Leaseweb have recognized and capitalized on this trend by expanding their data center footprint on a global basis, leveraging the Groove platform to help deliver the security and performance their customers demand, without sacrificing the flexibility they need to continually adapt to this changing market.”
