Infomart Data Centers has announced the availability of PacketFabric's Software-defined Networking (SDN) based network platform at its Dallas and Portland data center locations. PacketFabric, a NantWorks company, provides next-generation Ethernet-based cloud networking services. Its fully automated network platform provides Infomart customers with access to instantaneous, direct and secure provisioning of terabit-scale connectivity between any two or more locations on the PacketFabric network.

As the hub of connectivity for the Southern United States, a Point of Presence (PoP) within Infomart Dallas' Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR) provides PacketFabric and its end-users with the fastest and most direct path to one of the world's largest concentrations of international and domestic carriers, colocation and content providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and cloud applications. Furthermore, with a presence in Oregon's largest merchant data center, PacketFabric customers can access transpacific subsea cable systems as well as path-diverse terrestrial fiber routes to other companies with critical data assets in the greater Portland-Hillsboro region.

"For Infomart, access to innovative and industry-leading connectivity options is an amenity we are excited to offer our customers," says John Sheputis, president, Infomart Data Centers. "The PacketFabric platform further extends the reach of our highly-connected wholesale suites, providing customers with access to any other network or facility connected by the fabric."

PacketFabric's any-to-any SDN-powered network facilitates coast-to-coast connectivity between 130 premier carrier-neutral colocation facilities across 13 U.S. markets. The platform delivers hundreds of terabits per second of on-demand connectivity across its purpose-built private backbone network. This innovative architecture enables customers to easily procure and maintain network services in real-time, while reaching hundreds of destinations without the need to deploy and manage costly infrastructure, or rely on the public internet. 

PacketFabric customers can also dynamically design and quickly deploy any network configuration leveraging an advanced Application Program Interface (API) and web-based portal for unmatched visibility and control over their network traffic and services. Real-time analytics and interactive troubleshooting capabilities allow PacketFabric to offer the robustness of a packet-switched network, while ensuring consistent and reliable performance.

"Infomart's comprehensive and cohesive Dallas and Portland facilities are a natural fit for our cloud networking ecosystem," adds William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric. "With PacketFabric, the customers in these facilities can consume network connectivity with the same ease and agility as consuming cloud services when it comes to provisioning, delivery and billing."
