The Bunker Secure Hosting Migrates to IPv6 with Brocade
Leading hosting provider, The Bunker, has deployed Brocade® MLX™ Series routers to deliver network resilience for clients during the IPv4 to IPv6 transition, deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) performance and enable the company to stay ahead of increasingly bandwidth-intense applications, such as high-definition streaming media.
“The Bunker now offers cloud solutions to our customers... the Brocade solution is important in reliably underpinning this service given it provides IP transit connectivity. As a result of this upgrade, I am confident that we are in the best possible place to meet the challenges posed by bandwidth-intensive applications and the IPv6 transition. As the history of the location suggests, we pride ourselves in delivering reliability and security to all our clients. Thanks to Brocade we can continue to do this.”
The increase in bandwidth requirements caused by live streaming, HD content and mobile working applications (bandwidth-greedy applications) shows no sign of slowing down and has led to networks becoming clogged up with data.
Customers who have hosted their data centre facilities at The Bunker are set to benefit from a major network upgrade to its existing Brocade (Nasdaq: BRCD) environment. The evolution of The Bunker’s Brocade® MLX™ Series routers is designed to provide future-proofing for clients during the IPv4 to IPv6 transition, deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) performance and enable the company to stay ahead of increasingly bandwidth-intense applications, such as high-definition streaming media.
With four operational Points of Presence (PoPs) – sites in Sandwich and Newbury as well as two London-based locations at Telehouse and Level 3 – providing peering and Internet connectivity, multiple Brocade MLX routers have been deployed at each site for resilience alongside Brocade FastIron® Series switches for local customer connectivity.
