The DCspine platform is a fully automated, state of the art,
high capacity datacenter interconnection grid based on the latest SDN developments.
Spine PortAs the DCspine platform is developed based on the new “cloud” paradigm, all services are offered on 10GE / 40GE or 100GE ports (trunked), meaning that parties will have one physical connection with one or more (aggregated) virtual connections (SxC’s). Spine Ports are available at all connected datacenters. Spine customers can order ports without connectivity (SxC’s) enabling service providers to be available to connect with their clients. Spine Ports are delivered on an optical interface and available with the following port speeds 10Gb, 40Gb and 100Gb.
SxC - Secure cross Connect - P2P
SxC (Secure cross Connect) is a secure virtual connection between geographically dispersed locations that is private and separated from all other networks. Your SxC is configured as a direct Ethernet connection based on VxLAN, between two or more DCspine connected datacenters. SxC is a Virtual Ethernet Circuit and forms the basis for every connection. You can setup a private connection between two of your datacenter locations. Simply select a SxC P2P in the Spine store and configure a virtual connection between your Spine ports. We made it easy to interconnect to other Spine users, if you have a Spine port and need to interconnect to someone else, you can. This is mainly used to connect service providers to your private cloud.
