Telehouse America Expands Multitenant Network While Reducing the Operational Load
Data center services provider Telehouse America needed to reduce the operational load in its multitenant environment and simplify the network connecting two massive facilities.
Known for its rock-solid infrastructure and exceptional customer service, Telehouse America wanted to expand its multitenant environment and simplify the network connecting its two massive New York data centers.
To keep pace with increasing customer demands, the provider needed to reduce the operational load on its small engineering team and automate its network for greater efficiencies.
Telehouse America used Ethernet VPN (EVPN) and Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) technologies in the QFX5100 Switch to scale out its multitenant network and reduce the operational load. Now the engineers can interconnect multiple QFX5100 switches into a single logical device. And they’re using the Junos OS REST API to automate configuration changes and other network operations.
A simpler network powered by Junos OS has enabled the engineers to be more responsive to business needs. Configuration changes that previously took up to half a day can now be done in 5 minutes. The engineers developed their own monitoring tool for the Junos OS API, lowering costs further.
