Brocade has been chosen by infrastructure, cloud and managed services provider Fastrack Technology (Fastrack) which is gaining early-mover advantage in the Australian market by becoming one of the first companies to deploy Brocade Vyatta vRouter software networking technology as a core component of its data center operations. Fastrack is leveraging the benefits of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) to provide a new level of agility and scalable delivery for its Microsoft Azure, cloud, and network solutions.
With a focus on ASX100 and multinational customers, Fastrack competes in a highly challenging and demanding market. Being able to source cost-effective, reliable, and high-performance technology is critical in allowing its business to scale and deliver innovative solutions. The ongoing development of the Brocade Vyatta vRouter platform helps ensure that Fastrack has a clear technology roadmap with investment protection.
Yoni Kirsh, Managing Director, Fastrack Technology, said, “Brocade’s solution is a huge step forward for us in terms of scalability, agility, and manageability. We now have the ability to provision cloud connectivity for multiple customers within minutes rather than weeks or months. The vRouters also provide us with very granular traffic monitoring and control to ensure we can accurately measure and deliver against our SLAs. Flow accounting also allows us to accurately track network costs for each customer.”
