Global Capacity Partners with VeloCloud to Deliver Managed SD-WAN Services 

Waltham, MA, USA, April 3, 2017 -  Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces a partnership with VeloCloud™ Networks, Inc., the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN™ company, and industry-leading SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) technology provider to offer managed SD-WAN services. The partnership is part of Global Capacity’s strategy to expand its global Enterprise networking portfolio with software defined services that deliver flexibility, performance and reliability.

Global Capacity’s SD-WAN services will provide an improved network experience resolving some of the common WAN problems businesses face when building and managing complex Hybrid WAN architectures.  Today’s enterprise network issues include: difficulty in load sharing traffic across a mix of access connections; complex, static and manual network configurations make it difficult to map to business-centric requirements; and lack of application visibility and control over connections.  Global Capacity’s SD-WAN services will allow businesses to efficiently route data across their WAN by first choosing the right access types based on the performance needs of individual locations and applications, then define unique policies to automatically prioritize traffic, enabling enterprises to make better use of bandwidth to enhance performance and overall user experience.

“VeloCloud is excited to partner with Global Capacity to add the unique and truly multi-tenant VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN architecture to Global Capacity’s Hybrid network expertise,” said Sanjay Uppal, CEO and Co-Founder of VeloCloud. “The Global Capacity One Marketplace platform is purpose-built to deliver simple, cost-effective and high-performance Hybrid networks that connect enterprises to key cloud destinations. Global Capacity’s use of VeloCloud to further expand their provider neutral model of managing any combination of their services or their competitors is truly innovative.”

Global Capacity has designed a unique managed SD-WAN service that unifies network management across disparate network technologies – Ethernet, MPLS, Broadband, LTE - whether these are provided over the Global Capacity network, a competing network or a hybrid of the two. This creates a more agile and responsive Hybrid WAN with a simple plan to implement and migrate from an existing network architecture.

"Global Capacity’s selection of VeloCloud was based on a unique set of differentiated advantages that enhance our One Marketplace model by enabling us to further optimize application performance and reliably deliver a variety of services over any combination of network access technology," states Chris Alberding, Senior Vice President Product, Global Capacity.  “As SD-WAN services increase in deployment, the demand for Hybrid Networks grows along with it. As such, the need to manage multiple suppliers with diverse technologies across various cities enabling a robust hybrid network experience is necessary. The combination is a compelling value proposition to any Enterprise regardless of the industry.”

Global Capacity's SD-WAN solution is currently offered to select customers on a rolling basis and will be released to the general market by the end of the second quarter of 2017.  Read more about Global Capacity’s managed SD-WAN solution or get started with a consultation call with one of our network specialists to discuss ways improve your network application performance while reducing costs.

New Private Suite Provides Over 4,600 Sq. Ft. of Colocation Space and Instant Carrier Accessibility With $0 Monthly Cross-Connect Fees via the Building Meet-Me Room

Infomart Data CentersDALLAS – March 29, 2017 – Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, today announces the commissioning of a new private colocation suite within its Infomart Dallas facility.  Designed to maximize efficiency, the highly-connected space also provides access to carriers and an internet exchange already built into Infomart’s carrier-neutral Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR).  As the owner and operator of the building, Infomart offers $0 monthly cross-connect fees within the BMMR to facilitate further interconnection within the iconic data center hub.

“Infomart Dallas is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of carriers, colocation providers, and cloud applications.  Given the growing value for latency-sensitive edge computing, we are delighted to add a second Infomart-operated suite within the facility,” says John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers.  “Our expansion is one of several that will be completed this year, either by our team or one of our tenants.  Every new network connection and new application launched will continue to solidify Infomart’s position as one of the nerve centers for the digital economy.”

The newly commissioned 500kW private colocation suite is the second project completed in a series of strategic infrastructure investments planned for the building by Infomart Data Centers over the next 10 years.  The company plans to ultimately add over 500,000 square-feet of data center space and more than 30 MW of additional capacity to the property.

"Carrier hotels provide physical connection points where Internet carriers meet and transfer data. These facilities facilitate bringing data closer to end-users, lowering latency and improving performance,” says Stefanie Williams, Associate Analyst, Datacenters, for 451 Research. "As one of the Southwest's largest carrier hotels, Infomart provides enterprises with low-latency connectivity to cloud and telecommunications providers, eliminating last-mile cost and connectivity issues faced if co-locating farther from the facility. Infomart's new suite with access to its BMMR with no monthly reoccurring charges is a disruptive offering for latency-sensitive or performance-driven organizations."

Designed to Tier III standards, the space also provides distributed redundant power design, up to 200 W of power density per square-foot, and a pass-through Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) with a cap at 1.4.  The suite holds Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval, as well as SSAE Type II, SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II, PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, and ISO 27001:2013 certifications.

Infomart Dallas has experienced rapid growth of connectivity options within its BMMR.  Tenants connecting through the Dallas BMMR can access many carriers, including Level 3 Communications, Unite Private Networks, InnerCity FiberNet, Cogent Communications, WireStar Networks, Fibernet Direct and ServedBy the Net, as well as DE-CIX Dallas at no monthly cross-connect fee.  The BMMR also enables connections between more than 75 network carriers and all colocation customers within the building.  Infomart Dallas is the largest data center in Texas and the hub of connectivity for the Southern United States.
