Dell EMC to help Eurofiber create new way to interconnect data centres via SDN

Thursday 7 December 2017 | 09:29 CET | News

Dell EMC Networking has been selected to help Eurofiber create its DCspine platform, which provides virtual “meet-me-rooms” for interconnecting data centres via software-defined networking (SDN). The new method for data centre interconnectivity will in turn enable customers transform their IT environments using cloud-oriented operations and connect to cloud services on demand. Dell EMC said that with the architectural shift, data centre interconnection services can be faster, more scalable, agile and flexible than current offerings.

Built upon Dell EMC Networking Z9100-ON open switches running Cumulus Linux, the Eurofiber DCspine delivers a fully-automated, scalable, high capacity data centre interconnection platform based on the latest SDN developments. The company explained that DCspine makes it as easy to cross-connect between data centres as if they were within a single location. The platform offers online services for enterprise and cloud service providers operating from data centres. It is available 24/7 via its portal with the flexibility to change or delete services at any time. Other characteristics for the platform include high capacity of up to 100G per connection and flexible contract terms. All products will be available at the more than 30 data centres in the Netherlands and cloudproviders will be available to connect with on pre-configured ports. 

Eurofiber, founded in 2000, has a network of almost 30,000 km worth of fibre cable plus secure data centres covering the Netherlands and Belgium, and going into Germany.
