Colocation, hybrid cloud and managed services provider, QTS, has announced availability of a new Software-Defined Networking (SDN) based platform powered by PacketFabric. The SDN platform would enhance connectivity, enabling “seamless” network control for customers, and expand access to carriers, and cloud service providers.
The PacketFabric deployment is part of QTS’ multi-phased approach to simplify customer network strategies by providing diverse connectivity to the cloud and other mission-critical IT environments through QTS’ carrier neutral colocation data centers.
With the PacketFabric platform, QTS’ enhanced capability would provide fast, secure and scalable connectivity with immediate visibility and control over a customer’s network traffic across QTS facilities. QTS customers would be able to meet the capacity demands of the most bandwidth-intensive applications and workloads by instantly provisioning terabits of capacity to any other network, cloud service provider, or facility on the fabric.
QTS will initially make PacketFabric available from QTS mega data centers in Suwanee, GA; Atlanta, GA; Piscataway, NJ; Jersey City, NJ; Chicago, IL; Richmond, VA; and Miami, FL.
API, Web-Based Portal
“With an emphasis on scale, speed and economics, QTS aims to provide universal connectivity to enable our customers’ diverse hybrid IT strategies through our fully integrated data center platform,” said Dan Bennewitz, Chief Operating Officer, Sales, Product and Marketing, QTS. “QTS’ cloud networking service powered by PacketFabric enhances the process of provisioning and managing network infrastructure for a growing number of enterprises seeking control over the ‘last mile’ between their applications and their data center provider.”
Leveraging PacketFabric, QTS customers can also “dynamically design and quickly deploy” any network configuration using an advanced Application Program Interface (API) and web-based portal for “high visibility and control” over their network traffic and services.
“The PacketFabric platform enhances provisioning and delivery of a wide range of hybrid IT infrastructure and next-generation cloud networking services,” said William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric. “With PacketFabric embedded in QTS, customers can access scalable private and public cloud networking services and more easily provision and maintain network infrastructure.”
