Sabey Data Centers adds PacketFabric's SDN platform
23 March 2017 | James Pearce
Sabey Data Centers as began offering PacketFabric’s software-defined networking (SDN) platform at its data centre locations in New York, Seattle, Virginia and Washington.
The fully automated network platform allows direct provisioning of terabit-scale connectivity. Sabey will offer it at their Manhattan, Seattle, Ashburn and Quincy sites.
PacketFabric’s SDN-powered network offers coast-to-coast connectivity between 118 carrier neutral colocation facilities in 11 US markets. Sabey’s customers will now be able to provision connectivity between any locations on that network.
“The digitization of data has driven new network requirements for businesses, especially those with vast data demands such as healthcare providers and enterprises,” said Daniel Meltzer, VP of sales and leasing at Sabey Data Centers.
“Bringing the PacketFabric platform into our facilities provides Sabey customers with industry-leading infrastructure as well as the ability to instantly provision terabits of capacity to any other network or facility connected by the fabric. This enables fast, secure and seamless data transfer as well as reliable, cost-effective connectivity between multiple regions and data centres across the U.S.”
PacketFabric, which is owned by NantWorks, delivers hundreds of terabits per second of on-demand data across its private backbone.
It also allows customers to design and deploy any network configuration by using its API and web-based portal. This, it claims, offers “unmatched visibility and control” over network traffic and services.
“With PacketFabric, Sabey customers can access scalable, next-generation cloud networking services and more easily provision and maintain network infrastructure,” adds William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric.
“The cloud-based logic underpinning the PacketFabric platform also enables users to mitigate the headaches commonly associated with traditional telecommunications solutions, including expensive stranded capacity and long-term, inflexible contracts, and provision scalable network connectivity on a month-to-month or usage-basis.”
