Genesis sparks up with move to the cloud

By

New Zealand power company Genesis Energy is now running its business from the cloud after migrating its entire IT infrastructure to Spark’s Revera Cloud platform.

The large-scale migration has been completed as part of a partnership with Spark, New Zealand’s largest telco.

Under the five-year contract, Spark is delivering the power company a tailored package of IT managed services, business mobile, and cloud services in a highly competitive five year deal.

EGM Technology and Digital for Genesis Energy, Jennifer Cherrington-Mowat, said, "Making the move to cloud IT is a logical step for us as we focus on delivering the best outcomes for customers. We’re now in a great position to drive further efficiencies and deliver innovative energy solutions for New Zealanders in a fast-changing energy market.”

Spark’s GM enterprise commercial and trans-Tasman, Vanessa Sorenson, says that the partnership between the two businesses goes beyond a “shared commitment to enhancing Genesis’s operation via digital means”.

“Both parties are also complementing each other’s business by offering additional value-added products and services directly to their respective customers.

“We are both businesses invested in powering New Zealand’s future. Like Genesis Energy, Spark’s driving force is to deliver truly useful technologies that enable businesses and consumers to do their best work, and be their best selves.”

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.
