SAO PAULO, BRAZIL, May 08, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- To support its 40 percent year-over-year growth in its communication network, Brazilian-based Alog Data Centers today announced a $1.2 million USD implementation of Juniper Networks(R) MX routing platform with support from integrator Binario.
With data centers in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Tambore, Alog is a provider of collocation services, managed hosting and highly complex cloud computing services. Alog has 1,300 customers and 3,600 square meters in their data center environment with more than 3,200 square meters of modular designs for collocation. The Alog Network gives customers a scalable, robust and stable environment to do business.
"This partnership came together to support the increasing demand from our customers in a way that extends our industry leading high quality services offering," said Raphael Bittencourt S. Costa, area manager of Network Engineering at Alog.
According to Bittencourt, of the multiple platforms and technologies tested, the Juniper Networks MX Series proved to be superior in terms of capacity, while the Junos(R) operating system showed the most stability. "With the new platform, today we can expand our processing capacity by 11 times from what it was," said Bittencourt.
"Binario's support of this project was crucial," Bittencourt continued. "The integrator provided all the testing at their facilities and was responsible for part of the capacity-building and training of our team." Among the benefits provided by the project are guarantee of increased network capacity without impacting the end user, stability of the whole environment, traffic safety data, and greater resilience.
