Pacnet Upgrades Trans-Pacific Subsea Cable to 100G at CoreSite Los Angeles Data Center Campus

CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions, today announced that Pacnet, a provider of integrated network and technology solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, is delivering 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) services to customers at CoreSite’s Los Angeles data center campus, including One Wilshire, to connect the U.S. to its Asia-Pacific network.

Pacnet has upgraded its trans-Pacific and Asia subsea cable network to 100Gbps to address the growing demand for bandwidth services throughout the U.S. and Asia-Pacific region. Through Pacnet, CoreSite’s customers have the ability to connect to diverse carriers and gain high-capacity subsea cable access without purchasing backhaul to a landing station.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Pacnet and present our customers with higher bandwidth solutions and flexible connectivity options across the Pacific,” said Tom Ray, CEO at CoreSite. “As Internet traffic between the U.S. and Asia continues to increase, CoreSite customers can connect to a direct route to Asia, leveraging CoreSite’s capabilities as the leading gateway connecting the U.S. across the Pacific.”

Pacnet is the first carrier to provide 100Gbps services between the U.S. and Asia in an effort to support customers that require increasingly higher bandwidth solutions. This expansion is critical to the digital content companies, carriers, and large enterprises looking to direct connectivity to the Asia Pacific region.

“The 100Gbps bandwidth upgrade allowed us to roll out the Pacnet Enabled Network, a software-defined networking platform, at our interconnected data centers,” said John Garrett, President of Carrier Services, Pacnet. “CoreSite provides us with an access point to bring the innovative SDN platform to enterprise and carrier customers in the U.S., enabling them to self-provision scalable, private networks on demand and in minutes.”

CoreSite’s LA campus hosts the largest network community on the West Coast, with more than 375 customers, including domestic and international carriers, media and entertainment firms, cloud computing providers, social networking sites, gaming companies and enterprise customers.

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?
