The Solution Enables Cloud-Based Applications to Access Scalable Bandwidth, On-Demand
Los Angeles, CA and Honolulu, HI – January 17, 2011 – PacketExchange, the next generation Ethernet and IP network service provider with reach across Europe, North America and Asia, unveils its cloud computing networking solution – Network Infrastructure-as-a-Service (NIaaS) – at the annual Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) conference in Honolulu.
PacketExchange’s NIaaS provides enterprise organizations a way to reliably and securely access cloud-hosted applications. At a time when companies are increasingly sourcing their computing requirements from the cloud, whether public or private, the method by which they are accessed becomes ever more-important. As more mission-critical business processes migrate to the cloud, enterprises will demand faster, more secure network access into this infrastructure than the public Internet alone can offer. NIaaS illustrates PacketExchange’s ability to dynamically route data traffic across its converged global private and public IP network infrastructure to provide an optimized solution ideal for cloud-based applications. As well as the enterprise, the solution offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies and content providers a secure and reliable way to access, distribute and share information within a cloud-networking environment. With a focus on premium service delivery, putting network security, visibility and scalability at the forefront, PacketExchange offers companies the ability to choose the best available paths for data by dynamically utilising private and public infrastructures.
“Our experience in providing private, custom data delivery solutions to businesses that rely on the cloud has allowed us to engineer network solutions that assure the quality of service these applications demand,” comments Grant Kirkwood, CTO of PacketExchange. “With 100% SLA guarantees across our network, PacketExchange provides a reliable and robust infrastructure that offers the bandwidth flexibility needed to meet the dynamic needs of cloud-based data communications.”
According to the 451 Group, the cloud computing industry will grow from revenues of $8.7 Billion in 2010 to $16.7 Billion in 2013. More and more companies will rely on web-based applications and services, which will put an increased burden on networks globally. By leveraging multiple access technologies across a converged network solution, PacketExchange enables companies to leverage a shared or ‘cloud-based’ infrastructure. In turn, this allows for resources to be provisioned on-demand, creating a high-quality, reliable virtual and scalable network infrastructure.
PacketExchange’s Network Infrastructure-as -a -Service solution is used by leading Software-as-as-Services (SaaS) providers and enterprise businesses globally. Cloud-based applications require a smooth journey to its destination and PacketExchange’s global Ethernet network assures a quality data transport experience. Hence, network managers and industry experts are asked to weigh in on whether it is the Journey or the Destination that is most important.
