July 9 -- Carbon60 Networks, a leading Canadian cloud computing and managed services provider, has re-designed its cloud infrastructure to integrate Dell PowerEdge C Series servers into its 40G network infrastructure. In doing so, Carbon60 has created a highly efficient, reliable, secure and cost-effective cloud environment for its enterprise-level clients.
Carbon60 Network's clients come from a broad spectrum of industries including banking, financial services, media and public sector organizations, all of whom require always-available, highly secure hosting services for mission-critical data and applications. The Dell PowerEdge C Series server architecture allows Carbon60 Networks to host demanding applications with extremely high levels of redundancy and scalability to help ensure customer demands are met, irrespective of traffic spikes or hardware maintenance requirements, at a fraction of the cost of building their own, in house architecture.
The rack-mounted PowerEdge C servers allow Carbon60 to maximize its computing power while helping minimize its footprint and power consumption. Carbon60 built its first ultra-dense, cluster cloud infrastructure using six rack-mounted Dell PowerEdge C6100 servers, each with eight Intel Xeon core X5670 processors. With 48 core processors, and 1.5 TB of RAM in a 2U space, Carbon60 is able to strike the optimal balance between processing power, density efficiency and cost effectiveness.
With many high-profile clients requiring constant uptime for their mission-critical applications, Carbon60 Networks selected Dell ProSupport with Mission Critical Four Hour (4hr) Onsite Response Service. Should the need arise, a team of Dell engineers would be available to offer prompt support and replacement components to help ensure uptime is maintained and customer services are uninterrupted.
"Total Cost of Ownership with our new ultra-dense, Dell cloud environment is extremely attractive. In coming months we plan to replace more legacy equipment with next generation Dell PowerEdge C Series servers to further improve our revenue to data-centre-cost ratio and in turn pass these cost savings on to our clients. The decision to go with Dell was easy. Dell provides a superb level of support, service and consultancy. Working with Dell we believe we have struck the perfect balance between hardware performance, availability, computing density and cost effectiveness, which allows us to deliver world-class services to our customers." - Kelly Beardmore, CEO Carbon60 Networks.
"Our PowerEdge C Series servers truly are the perfect solution for Carbon60 Networks. They're built for the cloud and now used by many of the world's leading cloud computing operators, including those who require the highest levels of redundancy, security and performance. We're delighted that Carbon60 Networks has deployed our C Series servers and is realizing the performance and cost-saving benefits the C Series offers cloud customers." - David Miketinac, vice president and general manager, Commercial Sales, Dell Canada.
