Infomart Data Centers, a U.S. wholesale colocation data center provider, announces the availability of PacketFabric’s Software-defined Networking (SDN) based network platform at its Dallas and Portland data center locations.
PacketFabric, a NantWorks company, provides “next-gen” Ethernet-based cloud networking services. Its fully automated network platform provides Infomart customers with access to instantaneous, direct and secured provisioning of terabit-scale connectivity between any two or more locations on the PacketFabric network.
PacketFabric facilitates coast-to-coast connectivity between 130 colocation facilities across 13 U.S. markets, and enables scalable network deployment via its Application Program Interface (API) and web-based portal. The platform delivers hundreds of terabits per second of on-demand connectivity across its purpose-built private backbone network.
A Point of Presence (PoP) within Infomart Dallas’ Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR) would provide PacketFabric and its end-users with the fastest and most direct path to one of the world’s largest concentrations of international and domestic carriers, colocation and content providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and cloud applications.
Furthermore, with a presence in one of Oregon’s largest merchant data centers, PacketFabric customers can access transpacific subsea cable systems as well as path-diverse terrestrial fiber routes to other companies with critical data assets in the greater Portland-Hillsboro region.
“For Infomart, access to innovative and industry-leading connectivity options is an amenity we are excited to offer our customers,” said John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers. “The PacketFabric platform further extends the reach of our highly-connected wholesale suites, providing customers with access to any other network or facility connected by the fabric.”
Infomart Data Centers offers wholesale and colocation facilities in four markets throughout the United States: San Jose, Calif.; Hillsboro, Ore.; Dallas; and Ashburn, Va.
“Infomart’s comprehensive and cohesive Dallas and Portland facilities are a natural fit for our cloud networking ecosystem,” said William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric. “With PacketFabric, the customers in these facilities can consume network connectivity with the same ease and agility as consuming cloud services when it comes to provisioning, delivery and billing.”
