Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier (DTGC) has released Data Center Mirroring, which enables companies to mirror complete data sets to a second data centre to protect valuable assets.

DTGC manages the transfer of data via point-to-point connection to a completely separate location from the original data centre.

“All data to be mirrored is of course fully encrypted during the transfer process,” said Markus Fassbender, senior product manager, Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier. “Deployment is at the customer’s secure location and is dedicated to his encrypted connectivity service only. Customers can trust in our experience as one of the global leaders in telco security.”

The data centre mirroring service runs over Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier’s Lambda Connect – a high-bandwidth platform that delivers optical multiplex services based on the company’s next generation Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex technology.

Additionally, it employs an agile ROADM topology, which is necessary to produce multi-terabits of bandwidth that can handle more than 80 different signals using only one underlying dark fibre pair. So with a basic 100Gbps system, up to 8Tbps can be reached over a single fibre pair.

Fassbender added: “Our optical encryption service guarantees wirespeed performance, meaning high throughput, bulk encryption, highly scalable bandwidth, deterministic latency behavior and no packet loss. Clients are offered high flexibility, as they can choose a solution ranging from 1Gbps to 100Gbps.”

The solution has been launched first in Germany, with other global locations expected to be quickly rolled out thereafter. 

DTGC recently deployed a new solution to enhance and simplify the management of its voice business.
