OFFSITE partners with Noction of WAN solution

22 Aug 16

loud computing and data center hosting firm OFFSITE has announced the completion of a WAN Optimization solution from Noction, in a move the company says will improve customer connectivity by leveraging an intelligent routing platform.

“As a data center and private cloud provider focused on delivering a superior experience to IT professionals, OFFSITE believes that deploying this type of technology from Noction is a requirement,” states Steve Borucki, OFFSITE president.

“Our customers demand the resiliency and reliability of our operations, including our connectivity solutions,” he says.

“We believe that investments such as the Noction IRP solution will allow us to continue to capture share in our target markets.”

OFFSITE delivers connectivity to mid market companies through point-to-point (P2P) connections from tier-one providers as well as through the OFFSITE internet stack. The OFFSITE internet stack is engineered in a Border Gateway Protocol mesh of four tier-one bandwidth providers.

According to John Strong, CEO at Noction, Noction IRP brings intelligence and optimisation to the BGP mesh to significantly increase performance.

"OFFSITE's significant performance improvements and operational efficiency makes a compelling case for what Noction IRP can deliver for any multi-homed network," says Strong.

“OFFSITE is a datacenter innovator with the highest standards of reliability at every level of its infrastructure, so I'm pleased that we exceeded OFFSITE's expectations by giving an improved level of control and visibility into their network."

Strong says performance-based route optimisation using the IRP is an entirely new approach to solving the middle-mile problems of the internet.

“The IRP Solution from Noction allows OFFSITE to exploit the reliability inherent in multi-homing, while achieving predictable network performance. Noction IRP performs dynamic route optimization selecting the best path with the lowest network congestion and latency to provide customers with fast and reliable data delivery.”

Anthony Portee, OFFSITE chief technology officer, says, “Beyond the significant advances that the Noction technology provides in automated improvement of the wide area network (WAN) connectivity, the most important benefit Noction provides is the added level of insight into the functionality of our WAN.

“Since implementing the Noction solution, our customers have benefited from increased traffic performance by minimising latency and packet loss,” he says.

“We are proud to partner with such an innovative provider like Noction, enables OFFSITE to deliver dedicated and reliable internet connectivity with no oversubscription, no route discrimination and zero single points of failure.”
