Cloud Scale Multi-terabit Transport – Scale Out Instantly
October 17, 2017

The instant scalability of compute, storage and network capacity using a virtual infinite pool of resources is one of the significant attributes of the cloud. Scaling up, or vertically, in a data center (DC) is when a single server utilizes more of its internal resources to enhance performance for an… Read More

Game-changing Technology for New Subsea Cables
October 9, 2017

The subsea cable market is booming with approximately $9.8 billion in new cables expected to enter service between 2016 and 2018 driven largely by the cloud. The deployment of a subsea cable of over 10,000 kilometers (km) in length can cost more than $500 million, with multiple investors typically financing… Read More
