Use Case: Centralized Data Center

This blog will focused on the centralized data center use case.

This applies to organizations with multiple local sites connected to a single regional data center.

The increasing availability of high-bandwidth connections has lead to more organizations centralizing network infrastructure, reducing the need for equipment at each site, and simplifying network management. But this also introduces challenges around resource scaling. 

For instance, a school district may be composed of ten local sites, all of which need to be connected to the district’s administration system and remote storage housed in a nearby data center via high-speed fiber.

In this case, the Akros network services platform could be deployed in the central data center to manage incoming traffic from all sites across a network. Screen Shot 2018-06-12 at 10.00.23 PM

Using the routing, NAT and packet filtering functionality, a provider could guarantee QoS across sites and reduce vendor sprawl within their centralized data center. 

There’s no more need to set up new lines or painstakingly configure more hardware or virtual appliances as traffic grows or bandwidth requirements shift. Elastic resource allocation means scaling events are handled without operator intervention.

If you are interested in deploying the Akros network services platform to connect sites to a central data center, schedule a demo today.
