Products & innovations 3W Infra Launches IT Infrastructure Relocation Service in Amsterdam, Frankfurt and London 3W Infra has announced the expansion of its managed services offering with the launch of 3W Infra IT Infrastructure Relocation – a newly delivered data centre neutral relocation service for IT infrastructures housed in data centres located in the Amsterdam region, Frankfurt and London. The new managed service, 3W Infra IT Infrastructure Relocation, delivered by 3W Infra’s certified mobile engineering teams, is aimed at different types of users, including enterprises, cloud services providers (CSPs), systems integrators (SIs), managed services providers (MSPs) and colocation companies. Uniquely, the 3W Infra IT Infrastructure Relocation service is being delivered beyond the scope of the company’s own Amsterdam based flagship data centre and its existing global IaaS customer base. For 3W Infra’s engineering teams it doesn’t matter if customers are in need of a bulky server migration or relocation of just a small amount of servers. 3W’s project management department is capable of any relocation project; this will soon become evident as they have commenced relocating 3W’s own IaaS environment with 4,000 dedicated servers under management to a new, redundant and energy efficient data centre in Amsterdam.

The joint solution integrates the Agile Controller, Huawei’s SDN controller, with Ubuntu OpenStack to improve the efficiency of deploying and maintaining multiple data centre networks. A large number of controller nodes can be deployed in minutes to interoperate with the cloud platform quickly. Enterprises or telecom cloud platforms that are using or plan to use Ubuntu OpenStack platform can directly connect their OpenStack platform with the Agile Controller to enable quick, flexible service deployment and integration in multiple data centres. Canonical’s OpenStack Interoperability Lab in Boston builds more than 3,000 OpenStack clouds every month to test and verify the interoperability of different hardware, SDN and software combinations, helping customers to integrate and deploy their cloud platforms and SDN solutions in a secure environment. By cooperating with Canonical, Huawei makes another step toward an all-cloud network management ecosystem.
