Managed network service and hybrid cloud provider Unitas Global has unveiled its global software defined network (SDN), Unitas Reach. This global SDN offers automated ubiquitous edge access to any cloud location.
Unitas Reach is a purpose-built SDN connecting cloud providers, carrier-neutral data centers, SaaS applications, and edge access networks to form a multi-service global interconnection fabric.
“Organizations today need flexible, proven, and secure infrastructure to run their enterprise applications and multi-cloud solutions,” said Patrick Shutt, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Unitas Global. “With Unitas Reach, our clients achieve cost-optimized network connectivity with the agility needed to scale quickly and support the growing demands of applications on network architectures, performance, and costs.”
Unitas Reach is built to provide connectivity options that different “modern” cloud services require with “simple” integration to traditional enterprise networks. With its presence on six continents, Unitas Reach would provide redundant and diverse Internet, IP, Ethernet, and Wave access to distributed applications across any cloud, hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud, or private cloud destination.
Strategic interconnections with hundreds of other networks and fiber access providers further extends the network access to the edge, including over 900 carrier neutral data centers and 30 million enterprise locations in over 85 countries. Sophisticated automation, monitoring, and orchestration to the edge would make the entire interconnect fabric unique. It would enable complete flexibility in service creation and scaling capacity as enterprise networking needs change.
“We designed Unitas Reach in response to the dynamic networking requirements that today’s businesses require and have yet to experience,” said Grant Kirkwood, Founder and Chiief Technology Officer (CTO) of Unitas Global. “Providers and enterprises can easily add connectivity to dynamically support their everchanging network strategies, and customize capabilities to their unique set of service delivery, operations, access and configuration requirements.”
Unitas’ edge to everywhere connectivity solutions would offer providers and enterprises with automated:
- Cloud On-ramps for multi-cloud delivery
- High performance managed Internet
- Direct connectivity to and between multi-cloud platforms
- Agile and scalable WAN solutions
Unitas Global solves the enterprise challenge by going to market with MSPs, hyperscalers, and data centers who are able to establish an on-net Point-of-Presence with Unitas Reach. It enables these partners to expand their network coverage, scale services everywhere, and locate applications as close to customers as possible to improve performance and optimize costs.
