Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced on Tuesday that IONOS, the largest web hosting company in Europe, deployed Infinera’s GX Series Compact Modular Platform to expand its network and interconnect data centers across Europe with reliable, high-capacity, high-performance connectivity services.
IONOS offers small- and medium-sized businesses web hosting and cloud services, managing more than 6 million customers and hosting over 22 million domains in its own regional data centers in Europe and in the U.S. With the Infinera GX G30 compact modular solution, IONOS can cost-effectively scale capacity and deliver 100 GbE and 400 GbE services to meet increased demand for data center connectivity to keep up with its growing cloud business.
“We continue to advance the capabilities of our network infrastructure and invest in best-in-class technologies to meet ever-increasing data center traffic volumes driven by today’s bandwidth-intensive end-user applications,” said Sebastian Hohwieler, IONOS Head of Network Infrastructure. “Infinera’s industry-leading compact modular solution met our stringent performance requirements for scalable, flexible, resilient, and secure optical transport.”
The GX G30 solution also enables IONOS to address its sustainability goals by delivering the lowest power-per-bit transport and providing support for upcoming technology generations.
“We are constantly improving the energy efficiency of our networks,” said Daniel Heinze, SVP Network at IONOS. “Our target is to lower energy consumption despite traffic growth. Although green electricity is the main source of supply for our data centers in all countries, the best is if energy is not consumed at all.”
“We are delighted that IONOS selected Infinera as its technology partner of choice for this important network expansion project,” said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Infinera. “This deployment represents further validation of our leadership in compact modular solutions and provides IONOS the ability to meet the relentless growth in data center bandwidth with speed, scale, and efficiency.”
