Dynamic Optical Networks for Cloud Services with Colt and Infinera

Presented by

About this talk

Data Centre and Cloud services offer a flexible solution to the problem of data storage and compute services for enterprises, and even individual users today. But one implication of data centres is that they are highly distributed – partly for resilience, but also to ensure that these distributed storage and processing functions have low latency, and appear to the user as though they are “local”. In order to do this, the underlying optical transport network has to have the same level of flexibility as the Cloud services themselves. In this webcast Colt and Infinera will describe how a modern data centre architecture places specific demands on the underlying optical transport network, and how this network can be designed from the ground up to respond to those demands.
