Dimension Data, EMC collaborate on hybrid cloud

By

Dimension Data and EMC have launched the Catalyst Alliance, a strategic market development initiative designed to speed the adoption of hybrid cloud as a platform for transformation for the mid-size enterprise.

Both companies have announced that through the Catalyst Alliance they will make investments to develop and jointly market and sell solutions that allow clients to realise value from business strategies “based on hybrid cloud and enable them to adopt new technology while managing risk.”

Steve Nola, Dimension Data’s Group Executive for IT-as-a-Service, says the Catalyst Alliance will help clients realise the benefits of hybrid cloud that will be used to serve core business applications anywhere in the world.

“We like EMC’s commitment to disruptive innovation to help clients navigate IT transformation. By combining EMC’s technology leadership with Dimension Data’s extensive services portfolio and global reach, clients are able to accelerate their growth, creating value for their customers and financial returns for their shareholders,” Nola said.

EMC Senior Vice President, Global Alliances Jay Snyder, says customers are being challenged with changing business models and more technology choices than ever before.

And, Snyder says this disruption is creating “transformational opportunity” - “businesses across all industries are swiftly moving to reinvent themselves for a new Digital Age, where technology is used to grow, innovate, enhance customer relationships and make employees more productive.

“This alliance will enable those transformations both through scale and speed.”

Dimension Data and EMC say that through the new joint initiative, they plan to deliver clients comprehensive solutions that span private cloud on or off premises, public and hybrid cloud including advanced managed services for storage.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
