IP Fabric Delivers Unlimited Cloud Scale, Reliability, and Agility

November 22, 2017
 
 

With a Global Private Network that connects three continents, Servers.com is taking cloud hosting services to the next level. Based in The Netherlands, Servers.com delivers dedicated server hosting, colocation, and Content Delivery Network (CDN) services from the cloud. Servers.com is growing quickly, adding multiple data centers per year, and its existing infrastructure could not scale as needed or enable the company to deliver flawless, on-demand services to customers. They needed a new network that was fast, with no oversubscription. After a comprehensive evaluation of all the major networking vendors, they chose Extreme VDX Switches and an IP Fabric network topology.

Benefits of the new network solution include:

  • Enabled high-capacity connectivity with exceptional
    stability and performance
  • Optimized scalability to support up to hundreds of switches
  • Increased agility and reduced customer provisioning time from hours to minutes
  • Supported OpenStack development and SDN initiatives easily
   
 
Challenge
  • Rethink the network architecture to achieve unlimited scale, stability, and agility for meeting next-generation cloud
    data center demands
