ADVA Optical Networking's Latest Release of FSP 3000 Targets Cloud Computing Applications

One-Card Solution Offers Competitive Advantages in Data Center Environment

NORCROSS, GEORGIA and MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/10 -- To enable highest-capacity, universal data center connectivity, ADVA Optical Networking today announced the latest version of its flagship FSP 3000 product. Optimized for cloud computing applications, the FSP 3000 drives the scalable, high-speed connectivity required to address the fast-growing bandwidth demand of today's cloud-based data center interconnect environment.

Cloud computing is designed to provide pay-as-you-go services, which are attractive to enterprises looking to decrease expenses and outsource labor- and equipment-intensive computing functions. Due to the business-critical nature of many enterprise applications, data center operators today must deliver reliable storage and compute resources at often very short notice.

With new capabilities, the FSP 3000 enables operators to provide ultra-high bandwidth between data centers and remote backup locations. The FSP 3000 empowers an operator to choose any transport protocol at any rate and transport it over a fully tunable long-haul DWDM channel. With simple point-and-click provisioning, the FSP 3000 can deliver speeds that range from 1, 2, 4, 8 to 10Gbit/s, while addressing all storage interfaces currently in use in today's data centers, including Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet, among others.

The FSP 3000 also offers optional encryption. Security is addressed at the most efficient and cost-effective transport layer, providing high security with minimum impact on latency. It thereby creates a strong and viable solution for high-performance networks in the data center and cloud computing environment.

"In the context of Cloud Computing, the network is a critical asset and the selection of the right transport technology is vitally important. Most existing multi-protocol platforms require protocol conversion and add significant latency to the network. Our new FSP 3000 does not," stated Christoph Glingener, chief technology officer of ADVA Optical Networking. "We provide software-provisionable transport with minimum latency. This is imperative for cloud computing environments and all run-time sensitive applications. And like all previous releases, the FSP 3000 is qualified in all IBM mainframe and server-clustering applications. This is a strong solution that data center managers and network operators will benefit from tremendously."

The ADVA FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for service providers and large enterprises that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications.

While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...

Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
