IaaS Provider Limestone Networks Upgrades Its Network Infrastructure, Partners with Cisco

Limestone Networks, a Dallas-based IaaS provider of on-demand cloud hosting, dedicated servers and enterprise hosting services, has completed a major upgrade to its entire network infrastructure. In order to fulfill both the increased demand for speed and bandwidth, the company has partnered with Cisco.

In order to accomplish their objectives, LSN has installed and configured Cisco Nexus 9500 Series data center switches to provide a scalable, high-performance 100GbE backbone network, with Cisco Nexus 9300 Series switches providing 10GbE connectivity in a spine-leaf architecture. The upgrade, in planning for over a year, was completed over this past weekend.

The combined Cisco infrastructure will provide a next-generation platform for Limestone’s customer hosting services, as well as future-proofing to add additional client capabilities and services.

“We are very excited to be working with Cisco,” said Kris Anderson, director of business development for Limestone Networks. “This technology will not only improve our customers’ hosting experience, but will also allow us to create a more efficient way to scale out powerful client platforms.”
