要点

  • Used AG真人’s Net工作 as a Service (NaaS) for multicloud connectivity to AWS and 甲骨文云 Infrastructure to power their fulfillment, 呼叫中心, 以及商业智能平台.
  • Used AG真人云路由器 (MCR) as a net工作 hub to interoperate their internal net工作 into AWS and 甲骨文云 Infrastructure for both line of business and greater reliability.
  • Saved man hours from having to manually set up connections with individual clouds.

案例研究快照

After looking to improve net工作 reliability and reduce the cost of managing their own data center infrastructure, OceanX used AG真人’s Net工作 as a Service (NaaS) to modernize and extend their internal net工作 into multiple clouds to improve net工作 performance, 可购性, 和可扩展性.

挑战

将on-prem数据中心基础设施迁移到云

多年来, OceanX used on-premises data center infrastructure in California and North Carolina to power their fulfillment-as-a-service solution, 呼叫中心, 以及商业智能平台.

Unfortunately, their infrastructure became very expensive to maintain. They also had occasional issues with data center reliability that would adversely affect the business. That’s when they started looking to modernize their net工作 by migrating their business-critical infrastructure into the cloud.

“之前, if we lost power for an extended period of time or if we lost internet connection, 那我们就没生意做了,克里斯·奥斯特曼(Chris Ostman)说, 高级经理, 基础设施和操作, OceanX. “Being able to move everything up into the cloud allowed us to be more robust, 也让我们的事业得以发展, because it’s very easy to scale up into the cloud environment as well.”

解决方案

为弹性而构建的多云解决方案

从世纪链接云开始, OceanX eventually migrated to AWS to support their fulfillment and 呼叫中心 business, and then added 甲骨文云 Infrastructure (OCI) to enable their real-time business intelligence and analytics platform, 使用甲骨文数据库Exadata云服务. By using AG真人云路由器 (MCR) to connect their on-premises data centers to AWS and OCI, OceanX was able to bring multiple clouds into their net工作 for greater reliability, 控制, 和负担能力.

AG真人 allows us to extend our internal net工作 into the cloud
almost as though those clouds are a native data center for us.
[AG真人] gives us that direct connectivity almost as if
we had our own private fiber line, 而且真的很方便.
It’s as close as you can get to 控制ling all the equipment between
我们的酒店和云服务.”

好处

“想都不敢想超级港口会宕机”

使用超级港口的第一个也是最重要的好处, 根据莉丝, 服务的可靠性如何. While OceanX has had to deal with occasional issues with their local internet circuits and even net工作 connectivity with their public clouds, 与AG真人, OceanX已经能够“设置并忘记它”.”

“Honestly, I can’t even think of a AG真人 outage,”莉丝说. “速度总是如广告所宣传的那样. 我从来没有遇到过瓶颈. 它是固体.”

Reece also said that compared to manually setting up direct connections to public clouds and setting up all the BGP peering on a router, using AG真人 to establish those same connections in just “three or four clicks” is less cumbersome and saves man hours.

“I’m a net工作 engineer by trade and I find [AG真人] not too limiting,” Reece said. “适合不太关注网络的IT专业人士, they can get their way through the connectivity process fairly easily. 我认为它对用户非常友好.”

使用兆港云路由器作为网络集线器

OceanX uses AG真人云路由器 to both connect their cloud environments together 并连接 the clouds to their on-premises infrastructure.

“Just like you could buy a virtual machine or a virtual server in the cloud, [MCR]就像购买一个虚拟路由器,”莉丝说. “We’re kind of using [MCR] as a hub with the spokes being AWS, 甲骨文, and our on-prem locations via our existing MPLS circuits. 它类似于网络的核心路由器.”

OceanX的未来计划

目前正在进行甲骨文迁移, OceanX has been using a number of 虚拟交叉连接s (VXCs) to facilitate the data transfer, and plans to continue using AG真人 services in the foreseeable future.
