Application Note: Data Center Connectivity

  1. 1. APPLICATION NOTEData CenterConnectivity “Enterprises today cannot tolerate network downtime, and they need the flexibility to expand network services as their business changes.” Yasuhisa Yamada, KDDI CorporationYour Transport Network Is a Strategic AssetCloud computing, virtualization, business continuity and disaster recovery – all demand access to increasingamounts of bandwidth with the lowest possible latency. Financial and regulatory demands have now forced ITmanagers to reassess their data center storage strategy. Enterprises, including financial institutions and utilities,have started to deploy geographically dispersed server clusters and SANs. Disaster recovery concepts thatguarantee the availability and survival of essential data, even in case of a catastrophic failure, have become amandatory design requirement. Due to the large bandwidth requirements involved, optical transport networks area critical strategic asset for driving innovation and success in data center connectivity. Built-in redundancy andsecurity concepts are essential to achieve compliance regarding data safety and integrity.Our Solution –a Unique, Economical DWDM NetworkPrivate optical networks based on WDM technology By leveraging built-in protection and redundancyenable secure transport of massive amounts of data concepts, our FSP 3000 dramatically improves thebetween redundant data centers.
