Technology Services Provider Selects Force10 Networks as the Primary Network Infrastructure for its Next-Generation Data Center

Force10 Networks, Inc., the global technology leader that data center, service provider and enterprise customers rely on when the network is their business, today announced that Terenine Technology Solutions, a technology services provider based in Chattanooga, Tenn., has deployed switch/router solutions from Force10 Networks to provide core-to-edge switch/routing functionality as a part of their continuous improvements to their data centers.

“We heavily rely upon a reliable, agile and world-class performing network infrastructure that is purpose-built to serve our customers and enable us to effectively compete in the marketplace,” says Lynn Engel, vice president sales and marketing at Terenine. “By leveraging Force10 switch/router technology, we will be able to offer our customers world-class performance and reliability, which are critical to the high availability we promise and deliver.”

Implementing a Reliable Network in Order to Deliver Reliable Services

Terenine helps businesses find perfect alignment between business goals and technology innovation and service. Terenine offers a full array of technology solutions, from co-location, disaster recovery, backup and tiered storage to professional and technology services, as well as custom software applications.

When Terenine outgrew its previous network, data center managers looked for a solution that could offer uncompromising reliability and performance yet could provide port densities that would maximize return on investment. Terenine selected Force10 ExaScale™ E1200, E600 and E300 switch/routers, which provided Terenine with unmatched stability, density and performance by utilizing third-generation Force10 technology that incorporates patent-protected innovations and design advances to deliver unprecedented non-blocking, line-rate Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10 GbE densities.

In addition, Terenine also deployed the resilient C-Series™ C300 switch as well as top-of-rack S-Series™ S25 and S50 edge routers that provided additional cost-effective 10 GbE port density and reliable non-blocking performance that will facilitate seamless growth as their customers increase their respective bandwidth needs. Beyond the bandwidth and ability to scale, Terenine data center managers selected a variety of Force10 solutions because each of the switches and routers can be managed through the Force10 Operating System (FTOS) software’s industry-standard command line interface. The result of maintaining the same OS across its entire switch/router line included a consistent configuration environment and simpler software management.

“Terenine epitomizes the next-generation technology services provider that goes beyond simply offering access to a locked cage full of servers that provide bandwidth,” says Arpit Joshipura, chief marketing officer, Force10 Networks. “We applaud their achievements with state-of-the-art virtualization and cloud computing technologies, and especially their most recent “Tier III Design Certification” from the Uptime Institute for their Terevault™ data center.”
