Limestone Networks taps Cisco for 100G data center upgrade
Data center now supports 10 Gbps directly to servers and 100 Gbps within the network.
Limestone Networks (LSN - Dallas, TX), an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider of on-demand cloud, dedicated, and enterprise hosting services, says it has completed a major upgrade to its entire network infrastructure. The upgrade, in planning for over a year, was completed over this past weekend, reported the provider.
To accomplish its objectives, LSN installed and configured Cisco Nexus 9500 Series data center switches to provide a scalable, high-performance 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) backbone network, with Cisco Nexus 9300 Series switches providing 10GbE connectivity in a spine-leaf architecture.
The combined Cisco infrastructure will provide a next-generation platform for Limestone's customer hosting services, as well as future-proofing to add additional client capabilities and services, the company says.
"Over the past two years, we have experienced amazing growth, with many new clients coming on board and more of those clients requesting higher end services on our network," said Gary Kendall, CEO. "In order to fulfill both the increased demand for speed and bandwidth, we have completely upgraded and expanded our entire network, which now supports 10 Gbps directly to your servers and 100 Gbps within the network."
