Nationally recognized data center with Tier III Certification chooses OcNOS for breadth of features and depth of support
SANTA CLARA, Calif., November 7, 2023 – IP Infusion, the market leader in carrier-grade networking software systems, announced today that Scott Data, a recognized industry leader in data center facilities and services, has chosen OcNOS and an open networking strategy to service its network needs and accommodate future growth. Technology partner IP ArchiTechs provided essential deployment support.
Based in Omaha, Nebraska, Scott Data is a nationally recognized data center facility and one of only fourteen multi-tenant organizations in the nation to receive Tier III Certification in both design and facility from the Uptime Institute. Tier III Certification is awarded to facilities designed, tested, and validated to be concurrently maintainable.
An open networking strategy using OcNOS with open networking hardware from UfiSpace, Edgecore Networks, and Celestica provides an efficient alternative to legacy vendors. Heterogeneous hardware support enabled Scott Data to mitigate supply chain procurement challenges, reducing equipment lead time from years to just weeks. An open networking strategy was also cost-sensitive, with required budgets a fraction of competing solutions from closed-system vendors.
“OcNOS and an open networking strategy hits all the right notes in terms of cost, support, and features. Service providers and OEMs have been using IP Infusion for years,” said Ken Moreano, Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Scott Data. “Our successful operating history along with our entrepreneurial culture positions Scott Data to choose technology tools that not only make a solid business case but also reaffirm our longer-term core values of being a technical innovator and leader in our market space. We see open networking as a logical evolution as we move away from mainframe computing towards future cloud computing.”
“IP Infusion appreciates the technical vision of Scott Data, and we are pleased we can be part of their network evolution,” said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. “Aligning our business with other industry leaders helps maintain the quality of service and products that our customers have come to rely on.”
