Avaya Inc. and Steel ORCA Enters Strategic Partnership to Build Next-Generation Software-Defined Data Center

Avaya Inc. and Steel ORCA have entered into a strategic partnership to build a next-generation software-defined data center. Steel ORCA will standardize its data center architecture on Avaya Fabric Connect, setting the stage for rolling out the complete Avaya SDN Fx architecture later this year 2015. Opening this year 2015, Steel ORCA's Digital Utility Center is one of the newest and most technologically advanced data centers in the US The company provides colocation, managed services and cloud solutions on a global basis, emphasizing the responsiveness, reliability and resiliency of its data center services. Cloud service providers and data center operators such as Steel ORCA are building next-generation facilities using fabric-based SDN architectures as a way to meet the complex demands of delivering global cloud services. Avaya SDN Fx will allow Steel ORCA to add new customers and application services quickly and simply as their business and that of their customers grows. With a commitment to staying agile in an ever-evolving, turbulent business climate, Steel ORCA chose to implement the end-to-end mesh technology of Avaya Fabric Connect over a traditional box-by-box architecture. Avaya Fabric Connect enables Steel ORCA to enforce its commitment by providing agility needed to turn up or change services for multiple clients on the fly -without needing to touch the network core. Multi-tenancy capabilities within Avaya Fabric Connect will help the company provide more secure, segmented networks within their data center operations, and extend an increased level of digital security for customers. Steel ORCA's implementation of Avaya Fabric Connect sets the stage for a full Avaya SDN Fx deployment later this year. The Avaya SDN Fx architecture is the first to deliver automation and programmability from the network core to the user edge, providing connect anything, anywhere simplicity to both Steel ORCA and its customers. An ideal foundation on which to build Internet of Everything strategies, this extensibility makes it much easier to accommodate and configure the escalating number of intelligent devices and users at the edge that need to be connected. Many companies talk about being agile, but true agility can only be achieved through a constant focus on simplifying the organization and its underlying infrastructure, without compromising its resiliency.
