Continuity of Infrastructure as a Service assured with business fiber-optic solution

Uniserver is the Netherlands’ leading cloud hosting provider. A fiber-optic network based on Eurofiber’s dark fiber and WDM services enables it to guarantee the continuity of its services.

Challenge

Several years ago, Uniserver expanded its activities to include Infrastructure as a Service: a concept which sees IT like a utility, with customers paying only for what they use. This was to be enabled by an infrastructure guaranteeing its customers optimal availability and scalability. The infrastructure additionally had to provide Uniserver with sufficient flexibility to realize its growth ambitions.

Solution

A redundant fiber-optic network provided by Eurofiber connects Uniserver’s head office with four datacenters. The ring-shaped network consists partly of dark fiber and partly of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) connections with a bandwidth of 10 Gb/s. Since the routes are fully separated, data traffic can always be re-routed. The latency is very low and extremely constant.

Benefits

Uniserver guarantees its customers an uptime of 99.98%. Eurofiber’s fiber-optic network helps it fulfil this commitment. In addition, the company can always access its Infrastructure as a Service environment in the various datacenters from its head office. The network offers Uniserver an optimal price-performance ratio. Uniserver can also facilitate the rapid growth of its Infrastructure as a Service activities.
