VPLS Utilizes Sunesys Dark Fiber

Share Button

VPLS, premier cloud and managed service provider, to utilize Sunesys dark fiber to achieve 100Gbps of network connectivity between two data center locations in Southern California

The cloud and managed hosting services and Internet connectivity that VPLS provides to its customers, require high-bandwidth network solutions like the dark fiber offering we currently have in place.

Warrington, PA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014

Sunesys, LLC, a leading carrier of dark fiber, Ethernet and private wavelength networks, is proud to announce that VPLS, a premier cloud and managed service provider, is using Sunesys dark fiber to achieve 100Gbps of connectivity between two data center locations in Southern California.

In 2013, Sunesys first provided a dark fiber connection to VPLS and has since added two additional strands, which connect VPLS’s LAX9 data center in downtown Los Angeles to their LAX10 data center in El Segundo. “The benefit of going with a dark fiber network is that we’re able to use our own equipment – giving us complete control and the flexibility to increase bandwidth without additional costs. Sunesys was able to provide a cost-effective fiber optic solution to bridge the 40KM distance,” explains Ted Mektrakarn, Chief Executive Officer at VPLS.

Sunesys looks forward to a continued relationship with VPLS. “The cloud and managed hosting services and Internet connectivity that VPLS provides to its customers, require high-bandwidth network solutions like the dark fiber offering we currently have in place,” states Sunesys Senior Vice President Alan Katz. “ In this dynamic marketplace, we continue to see bandwidth hungry carriers surpass the 1G and 10G offerings, shooting straight for 40G and beyond. We are excited to see companies like VPLS pushing this boundary over our network.”

Sunesys, headquartered in Pennsylvania, currently operates over 9,000 fiber route miles in ten states across the country. Sunesys’ entire footprint can be viewed online at http://www.sunesys.com/network-maps/ or by downloading the Sunesys App, available for iPhone and Android devices.

VPLS Opens Data Center in Bangkok Thailand

Share Button

Data center Information

VPLS’s initial expansion into Southeast Asia started in Bangkok, Thailand not only because we have local support staff and offices but we believe the future of technology in and around Southeast Asia will revolve around Thailand as the hub. VPLS selected Thailand’s premier data center and solutions provider CS Loxinfo due to their high quality facility in the heart of Bangkok located in the Cyberworld Towers. Our Bangkok data center has diverse connectivity to major Internet junctions in Thailand and is well connected to provide high speed, low latency domestic connectivity.

Building Information 390 sq meter per suite
DC Description Internet Data Center is split into multiple suites for redundancy and isolation
UPS Systems N+1 UPS per suite
Generators Caterpillar two-megawatt diesel generators
Security 24x7x365 professional security services and support staff
CCTV and Biometric security system
Emergency Protection FM-200 Fire detection and suppression systems

Utility/Back-Up Power & Generator

A unique and intriguing aspect of the Bangkok data center is that all data center space is cut up into smaller suites allowing for redundancy and isolation in the event of an issue with a single suite. All power distribution units are fed by redundant battery powered UPS systems which connect to diesel generators and utility power that is fed on diverse paths dedicated to CS Loxinfo that is not shared with the rest of the building.

Security & Protection Features

As with all of our facilities, security and protection is of the upmost importance to VPLS. Biometric scanners and 24×7 security and support staff monitor the facility and building. All equipment that enters and leaves the facility must be tagged with a serial barcode and checked in and out.
