Google Cloud Builds Global Content Delivery Network Partnerships

Google announced collaborations with four of the industry’s leading content delivery network (CDN) providers: CloudFlare, Fastly, Highwinds, and Level 3 Communications.

The new CDN Interconnect program enables the customers of these CDN providers and the Google Cloud Platform to pay reduced prices for in-region Cloud Platform egress traffic (to approved CDN locations).

Google said this CDN Interconnect program will encourage the best practice of regularly distributing content originating from Cloud Platform out to the edge close to end-users. Google provides a private, high-performance link between Cloud Platform and the CDN providers, allowing content to travel a low-latency, reliable route from the Google data centers out to the end users. Google is recommending that publishers on the Google Cloud Platform to also use a CDN provider especially for heavy, frequently accessed content.

Google's network footprint currently extends to 70 PoPs in 33 countries.

Level 3 Content Delivery Network is in 90+ major metro cities globally.

CloudFlare posted the following explanation: 30 CloudFlare points of presence (PoPs) are directly connected to Google Cloud Platform’s infrastructure. When one of these CloudFlare PoPs requests content from a Google Cloud Platform origin, it’s routed through a high-performance interconnect instead of the public Internet. This dramatically reduces latency for origin requests, and it also enables discounted Google Cloud Platform egress pricing in the US, Europe and Asia regions.

As of May 1st, Fastly has nine points of presence (POPs) interconnected with Google: San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, New York, Ashburn, Frankfurt, London, and Tokyo.

Level 3 Acquires Black Lotus for DDoS Mitigation

Level 3 Communications has acquired Black Lotus, a start-up offering global Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation services. Details on the all-cash deal were not disclosed.

Black Lotus, which is based in San Francisco, operates a global DDoS mitigation network which monitors traffic on edge routers to generate sample data called flows which are then sent to an analysis platform. The traffic sample is then evaluated to determine if there is a DDoS attack against the destination IP, and if so traffic to that IP is diverted into one or more scrubbing centers. Once traffic is in the scrubbing center it can be filtered based on signatures which are predefined traffic patterns which are known to be DDoS attacks, or heuristics which are abnormalities in traffic patterns which may be indicative of a DDoS attack.

Level 3 said the acquisition of Black Lotus will add additional capabilities to the existing Level 3 DDoS service, which launched earlier in the year, including adding extra scrubbing centers. The Level 3 DDoS Mitigation service provides an enhanced network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing solution alongside network routing, rate limiting and IP filtering abilities. Black Lotus adds proxy-based DDoS mitigation services to the portfolio providing additional capabilities for application layer attacks, along with advanced behavioral analytics technology. The application layer is a prime target for DDoS attacks that often impact Web servers and Web hosting providers.

"At Level 3, we value security and are committed to protecting our customers and our network," said Chris Richter, senior vice president of managed security services at Level 3. "Black Lotus' proxy and behavioral technologies, combined with their experienced team of DDoS experts, perfectly complements Level 3's DDoS mitigation and threat intelligence capabilities. With this acquisition, Level 3 continues its commitment of investing in a comprehensive portfolio of services that enhance the growth, efficiency and security of our customers' operations, helping enterprises combat the cybersecurity challenges they face every day."

Level 3 Launches SDN-based Adaptive Network via ExpressRoute to Microsoft Azure.

Level 3 Communications introduced SDN-based Adaptive Network Control Solutions via ExpressRoute to Microsoft Azure. The service is designed to help enterprises move applications and workloads from on-premises data centers to the cloud.

Adaptive Network Control services include:

  • Enhanced Management - provides visibility into and analytics of key network performance characteristics like latency and packet loss on an end-to-end, site-by-site basis
  • Dynamic Capacity - which gives customers the ability to scale their bandwidth by up to three times on demand or automatically based on scheduled events or utilization triggers.  

Level 3 said its SDN-based network functionality is ideal to support a variety of use cases in Azure, including scheduled backups for disaster recovery, managing large ad hoc IT workloads and handling seasonal volume growth.

"Traditional private networks typically provide fixed amounts of bandwidth with minimal insight into performance," said Anthony Christie, chief marketing officer at Level 3. "Now enterprises can take advantage of Level 3's Enhanced Management and Dynamic Capacity for Microsoft Azure, giving them the ability to seamlessly and instantly adjust their bandwidth needs as well as garner important network data that can help inform their future network decisions. This new approach to managing bandwidth helps enterprises significantly increase operational efficiencies and performance, which are critical components to a company's long-term success."

Level 3 Offers DDoS Mitigation Service with 4.5 Tbps Ingest

Level 3 Communications introduced a new DDoS Mitigation Service that provides protection closer to the network edge.

The Level 3 DDoS Mitigation Service leverages the carrier's vast DDoS ingest capacity, 4.5 terabits per second, to predict and detect malicious attacks, alert customers and quickly re-route traffic to defend their critical data infrastructures. Infected packets are routed to one of Level 3's globally located scrubbing centers before being returned via a private connection or the public Internet. The global service provides enhanced network routing, rate limiting and IP filtering alongside a network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing solution.

Level 3 said the combination of its expansive network, which provides extensive attack traffic visibility, and the service's ability to work on both Level 3 and on third-party networks provides a clear differentiator in the marketplace for customers. The vast level of visibility comes from the company's Content Delivery Network (CDN), IP and Domain Name System (DNS) networks. The addition of Level 3's threat analysis capabilities and managed security services enable it to assist enterprises in building a strong security posture to address today's complex threat landscape.

"Throughout my tenure in the cybersecurity business, I have never seen such an accelerated and sophisticated cyber threat landscape – and attacks will only continue to grow in frequency, size and complexity," said Chris Richter, senior vice president of managed security services at Level 3. "Level 3 has leveraged its global network infrastructure and managed security services with leading detection and mitigation technologies to provide our customers with a truly advanced layer of defense against these evolving exploits."

Level 3's Cloud Connect Adds HP Helion

Level 3 Communications has added HP Helion Managed Cloud Service to its Cloud Connect Solutions ecosystem, which provides enterprises and government agencies with an MPLS VPN connection over the global Layer 3 network to third party cloud services.

In addition to the security of a private VPN connection, Level 3 said its Cloud Connect offers rapid service provisioning, dynamic bandwidth, and usage-based billing. Level 3 Cloud Connect via the global Level 3 network to HP dual-active cloud sites establishes load balancing and redundant failover.  The companies cited 99.999 percent uptime.

Level 3 Cloud Connect Solutions also delivers direct connections to HP Helion Managed Virtual Private Cloud for Public Sector. HP Helion Managed Virtual Private Cloud for Public Sector follows applicable regulatory standards such as FedRAMP and FISMA, which provide customers with reassurances about the security and compliance of their overall cloud strategy.

Level 3 and HP expect these services to be available in North America during the fourth quarter of 2014 with global availability in the first half of 2015.

"The combination of HP and Level 3 delivers the tools for customers to transform their IT and network architecture in the cloud," said Anthony Christie, chief marketing officer of Level 3.

Level 3 Wins Department of Homeland Security LAN Contract

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has selected Level 3 Communicatios to deliver local area network (LAN) managed services for the agency within the National Capital Region (NCR) under the Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS) 3 contract. Specifically, Level 3 will deliver a combination of managed voice, audio and video conferencing, transport, Ethernet and IP within the NCR.

Under the contract, Level 3 will deliver an end-to-end solution for the DHS that will connect nearly 60 DHS sites, including the recently consolidated DHS headquarters at St. Elizabeths. The project includes installation of cabling and equipment, network design, engineering, monitoring and management.

Level 3 said this multi-year, multi-million dollar contract represents a significant shift in how public agencies approach information technology (IT) infrastructure procurement and management, particularly as Network as a Service (NaaS) models gain greater traction to help the government.  Level 3 will be one of the first telecommunications providers to deliver a fully outsourced NaaS solution for a federal government agency.

"Today, federal agencies are facing increasing pressure to keep pace with explosive demands for actionable data and remote access to information, while also managing significant budget constraints as a result of sequestration," said Edward Morche, senior vice president of East Region Enterprise and Government Markets for Level 3 Communications. "This new operating environment is compelling government IT leaders to think differently and seek outsourced solutions, where previously they may have dedicated internal resources to solving problems we address every day at Level 3. We are proud to take a leadership position in providing the level of service, flexibility and experience necessary to meet a broad range of needs for the DHS."

U.S. Courts Selects Level 3 for Nationwide Network

Level 3 Communications landed a multi-year contract with the United States Courts to provide network infrastructure and services to improve overall communications quality and management throughout the federal judicial system.

Under the General Services Administration (GSA) Networx Enterprise contract, Level 3 will deliver direct connections to each of the designated sites via IP virtual private network (VPN), optical wavelength and Ethernet access services.
