Data Center Interconnect solutions for massive scale
Scale and accelerate your cloud computing service with custom-designed DCI solutions for hyperscale data centers
In recent years, cloud service providers have seen a tremendous growth – there are now 25 hyperscale-rated companies across the globe, with more than 260 data center locations in the world. In addition, such data centers do not exist in isolation. They must communicate with each other across a campus or across regions, share data and information, and provide backups and redundancies.
The big data explosion has pushed the development of such hyperscale data center campuses. Today, any of a variety of buildings on a campus need to be connected with sufficient bandwidth. Multiple factors push the trend, all of which share a common driver: the need to transport, process and store the large quantities of data generated by industry, manufacturing, networking and social applications.
Fiber optics network infrastructure – tailored to your needs
Driven by exponential growth of machine-to-machine communication and flat spine-leaf networks, the ideal is to have one large network fabric on the campus, thus requiring large amounts of connectivity between facilities. Today, bandwidth capacity between data centers on a hyperscale campus can be as high as several hundred terabits per second – and only to be growing in the future. Considering 100 Gb/s technology to provide for this capacity already requires usage of 3,456 fiber optic cables per individual data center interconnection. Solutions for such an environment in which there is one chance to get it right are surely nothing to be chosen off the shelve.
R&M are experts in tailor-made fiber optic connectivity solutions for large scale data centers. Our DCI solutions enable you to save four to ten hours during a single 3,456-fiber cable install in comparison to competitor products.
So, it makes sense to turn to an expert.
