NHN Techorus Corp. Deploys Infinera Cloud Xpress for Data Center Interconnect
April 19, 2016
Sunnyvale, Calif. – April 19, 2016 – Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced that NHN Techorus Corp. (Techorus) deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to interconnect its Tokyo data centers. The Cloud Xpress allows Techorus to scale capacity to serve its data center customers with hyper-scale density, operational simplicity and low power consumption.
Techorus is a data center provider of IT infrastructure and managed services, e-commerce services, and security solution services mainly to the Tokyo and Osaka areas in Japan, with additional sites in southern Japan and South Korea. Working with Infinera’s partner, Nissho Electronics, Techorus selected the Infinera Cloud Xpress to serve the growing need for high capacity interconnectivity among Techorus locations, helping its customers to grow efficiently and connect to the metro Tokyo ecosystem of customers, partners and service providers.
With the Cloud Xpress, Techorus leverages Infinera’s unique photonic integrated circuit technology to support up to one terabit per second (Tb/s) of input and output capacity in just two rack units. With its small form factor and low power consumption, Cloud Xpress delivers a full 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channel of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) line-side bandwidth over 150 kilometers (km) without additional multiplexers or amplifiers, and up to 600 km with an amplified line system. Cloud Xpress also enables efficient scaling with simple provisioning and open interfaces to plug into existing cloud provisioning systems using open software defined networking (SDN) application programming interfaces (APIs). Instant Bandwidth allows the activation of WDM bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments with a few clicks of a mouse enabling rapid scale to meet continued customer demand.
“The Infinera Cloud Xpress is an ideal platform for our metro network, connecting critical data centers in Tokyo,” said Jun Masuda, Operating Officer, Information Infrastructure and Network Management Section at Techorus. “It offers very high capacity while also being compact, power-efficient and easy to use, matching our data center operating requirements.”
“Techorus’ selection of the Cloud Xpress further reinforces the value of Infinera solutions for data center interconnection across the globe,” said Andrew Bond-Webster, vice president, regional sales APAC at Infinera. “Infinera continues to see traction among our customers deploying Cloud Xpress to scale capacity for data centers. We are especially pleased with the success we have seen providing Cloud Xpress to Techorus and other customers in Japan and the Asia Pacific region in conjunction with our highly valued partner, Nissho Electronics.”
Infinera introduced the Cloud Xpress family in 2014 delivering a cloud-optimized WDM solution to cloud service providers, Internet content providers, Internet Exchange service providers and other large-scale data center operators. The Cloud Xpress Family offers customers the choice of 10 gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 40 GbE and 100 GbE client interfaces to meet their specific requirements.
