The market has grown explosively and customers ranging from small to large enterprises are demanding additional services from their data center infrastructure providers. SW Hosting wanted to take advantage of this development by expanding its service portfolio. However, to do so it needed to simplify the management of its existing data center infrastructure.
Xavier Serra Martinez, CEO, SW Hosting
SW Hosting manages several data centers in Spain. Its service portfolio consists of cloud, collocation, and hosting services, and it uses proven solutions to provide maximum value and performance to its customers.
Although hosting, collocation, and a disaster recovery option are valuable services today and will continue to be in the future, the focus has shifted to cloud computing. Small enterprises to large organizations are now clamoring for cloud offerings.
SW Hosting decided to base its new data center infrastructure on the Juniper Networks® MetaFabric™ Architecture, using QFX Series switches as top-of-rack (ToR) devices, MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers, and firewall clusters implemented using the SRX Series Services Gateways.
The new infrastructure allows SW Hosting to accelerate new product design initiatives, with the network supporting all types of connectivity topologies. Expanding one data center by increasing physical or logical server density, or adding a new data center altogether, is now easy and straightforward.
