Extreme Networks Announces That DataChambers Selects Its Next Generation Data Center Network Solutions

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced that DataChambers, a cloud and data managed services company in Raleigh and Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has selected Extreme Networks Open Fabric data center architecture with expert guidance from Platinum channel partner Blue Door Networks, a solutions integrator that specializes in the supply, design and support of next generation data center networking and converged storage.

DataChambers operates multiple dedicated data centers from which it provides IT management services and business continuity solutions to customers throughout the United States. The Extreme Networks data center solution for DataChambers features intelligent 1GbE Top of Rack switches with support of Layer 2/3 services to support a highly resilient and responsive network connecting thousands of servers.  The network and high speed server attachment is the lifeblood of the business and requires 24x7 availability and scale. Space and power efficiency provided by the network is at a premium as server racks occupy more than 65% of the space, making for a dense, high transaction environment for mission critical customer transactions and storage.

The company selected Extreme Networks Open Fabric solution consisting of the BlackDiamond® 8800 and Summit® X480 and X460 TOR switches to support virtualization and converged storage. The ExtremeXOS® modular operating system provides the automation, configuration and operational foundation to reduce the amount of hours spent operating the network.

"Total availability is the essential feature we required from our new network as we need an infrastructure that scales for hundreds of different customers and thousands of different devices," said Nicholas Kottyan, CEO of DataChambers.  "Our experience with Extreme Networks and Blue Door Networks has been exceptional as the design, delivery and installation of the solution have been as promised." 

In February, Extreme Networks began shipments of OpenFlow with the release of ExtremeXOS 15.3 and SDN applications from Big Switch Networks: Big Tap, provides traffic monitoring and dynamic network visibility with flow filtering, and Big Virtual Switch (BVS), an application for virtualized data center networks which provisions the physical network into multiple logical networks across the stack, from Layer 2 to 7.

In very short order, the term "Blockchain" has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems that this technology could ultimately help us in at least partially solving. But if we do not unpack what is real and what is not, we can lose sight of the potential. In this presentation, John Bates-who leads data science, machine learning and AI in the Adobe Analytics business unit-will present his 4-prong model of the general areas where Blockchain can have a real impact and the specific use...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators.
