“The digitization of data has driven new network requirements for businesses, especially those with vast data demands such as healthcare providers and enterprises,” says Daniel Meltzer, Vice President 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 centers across the U.S.”
PacketFabric’s any-to-any SDN-powered network facilitates coast-to-coast connectivity between 118 premier carrier-neutral colocation facilities across 11 U.S. markets. The platform delivers hundreds of terabits per second of on-demand connectivity across its purpose-built private backbone network. This innovative architecture enables customers to easily procure and maintain network services in real-time, while reaching hundreds of destinations without the need to deploy and manage costly infrastructure, or rely on the public internet.
PacketFabric customers can also dynamically design and quickly deploy any network configuration leveraging an advanced Application Program Interface (API) and web-based portal for unmatched visibility and control over their network traffic and services. Real-time analytics and interactive troubleshooting capabilities allow PacketFabric to offer the robustness of a packet-switched network, while ensuring consistent and reliable performance.
“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.”
