ADVA Optical Networking announced today that iWeb, one of Canada's largest Internet hosting infrastructure providers, has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 throughout its Montreal data center network. Comprised of over 35,000 servers spread across five key locations, iWeb’s network has recently seen enormous data growth. The ADVA FSP 3000 enables iWeb to rapidly respond to this data growth and scale to future 100G technology.
“Our network is our critical competitive advantage. It's what differentiates us. It’s what sets us apart from the market,” said Cyrille Mertes, CTO, iWeb. “Our network availability and response times are some of the best in the industry. That's why it's vital that we only work with the most dynamic partners. ADVA Optical Networking reflects our own drive for customer satisfaction and the desire to push technology. You only need to look at the small footprint and low power consumption of the ADVA FSP 3000 to understand this.”
The ADVA FSP 3000 (advaoptical.com) was specifically chosen by iWeb because of its space and cost efficiencies. The product's small footprint is critical to its success in the data center market. In this environment, it can be deployed into already cramped facilities. Additionally, it also reduces operating budgets with its low power consumption, which is important for IT managers who are continually striving to drive down costs. This combination, along with its scalability, ensures iWeb can respond to customer demand in the most effective way possible.
“iWeb has built an impressive history focused on technology and, more importantly, using this technology to exceed customer expectations,” commented John Scherzinger, senior vice president of North American sales, ADVA Optical Networking. “The company has created a network that achieves 100% uptime and some of the fiercest response times in the industry. We're working with iWeb to help drive its network forward, to help the team achieve even more. This is the beginning of a partnership that will see iWeb scale to 100G and beyond.”
