Leading Netherlands cloud hosting provider Uniserver accelerates data centre network provisioning with Cisco VTS

  • Netherlands-based cloud hosting provider Uniserver sought to manage escalating complexities within its operations.
  • Uniserver can now rapidly provision a new customer-facing service or a full data centre with the click of a mouse – a process that used to require extensive manual coding.
  • Cisco Virtual Topology System (VTS) is helping Uniserver make its data centre simpler, more flexible and much more responsive to customer needs.

 

Uniserver’s service acceleration challenge

With the goal of continuing to serve its customers with quality, innovative cloud and business solutions, Netherlands-based cloud hosting provider Uniserver is partnering with Cisco to help drive network innovation. The ultimate aim is to achieve greater programmability, while accelerating provisioning for its data centre network fabric.

Uniserver has deployed Cisco Virtual Topology System (VTS), a standards-based, open software-overlay management and provisioning system that will bring sophisticated network provisioning for virtual and physical infrastructures. This capability has enabled Uniserver to reduce the time it takes to deploy new services with high scalability and flexibility.

"Continuously innovating and investing in new network technologies is essential to provide our customers with quality services and offer the most reliable cloud infrastructure," said Chango Eersel, Director Operations, Uniserver. "With the support from Cisco VTS and Quanza Engineering, our automated data centre network has allowed us to rapidly offer new services and solutions to our customers and partners."

Cisco’s solution benefits realised

With the deployment of Cisco VTS, Uniserver has also benefited from:

  • Increased simplicity and a standardised process for high-quality, error-free provisioning.
  • Transparent integration, providing support for existing multi-vendor infrastructure and operational systems, like OpenStack and vCenter.
  • Faster network provisioning.

Cisco offers a breadth and depth of solutions in the programmable data centre solution space, from ACI and VTS to programmable switching infrastructure covering different levels of automation and abstraction. Additionally, Cisco boasts a comprehensive suite of data centre switching and server platforms.
