DataBank Announces Deployment of a Customer-Ready IPv6 Solution

DataBank Announces Deployment of a Customer-Ready IPv6 Solution

Dallas – March 12, 2014 – DataBank, a leading multi-tenant colocation and managed services provider, has announced the successful deployment of customer-ready IPv6 production solutions to an unnamed client in a dual-stack, parallel production environment. Industry-wide the adoption of IPv6 is growing as IPv4 resources grow scarce. The advantages of DataBank’s investment in both man-power and new architecture become apparent in the enormous benefits they have received in resource flexibility and scaling. DataBank customer-ready architecture allows for standardized deployments of (/64) address blocks to clients, as well as, the ability to service IPv6/IPv4 translation.

“DataBank is wholly committed to providing our clients the very best network access and services,” said Michael Gentry, DataBank’s Vice President of Operations. “This deployment exemplifies that commitment and embraces the new standard with customer-ready solutions that will offer the utmost levels of flexibility and scaling.”

The deployment is representative of a continual investment DataBank has made to enhance customer network access, services and resources in all of the company’s world-class data center facilities. The investment is perhaps most prominently seen in the deployment of the company’s redundant proprietary metro-fiber ring which connects DataBank’s Dallas-area data center facilities, dubbed DBIX (DataBank Information Exchange). Plans for the deployment of additional Metro-fiber rings in other served markets and connection between markets are already underway.
