Yahoo! JAPAN Interconnects Data Centers with Infinera Cloud Xpress

Yahoo! JAPAN, one of the largest portal sites in Japan, has deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to interconnect its data centers in Osaka. Yahoo! JAPAN also uses the Infinera XTM Series in its metro networks.

Infinera partner ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation provides Yahoo! JAPAN information technology solutions and data center maintenance services.

Infinera's Cloud Xpress leverages the company's photonic integrated circuit technology to deliver a 500 Gb/s super-channel over 150km km without additional multiplexers and amplifiers. The Cloud Xpress incorporates Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth technology to allow customers to software-activate line-side bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments as and when needed, closely matching their end-customer demands. In addition, the Cloud Xpress is designed for plug-and-play installation with simplified provisioning and support for data center automation using open software defined networking (SDN) application programming interfaces (APIs).

“Yahoo!
