As Equinix rapidly expands its data center footprint, it needs to bring each new site into its IT infrastructure by migrating from the existing wireless and wired infrastructure to a standardized “stack”. Due to CVE’s strong performance last year at US based locations, the client requested that CVE conduct the upgrades of its Australian locations in 2018. The work required both detailed physical cabling design and network engineering expertise. The project tasks progress from site surveys to physical design, network design, equipment sourcing, equipment configuration, shipping, installation, cabling, and migration, utilizing CVE onsite technicians and engineers.
In Singapore, CVE Technologies successfully migrated the IT infrastructure for the Equinix SG1 data center. Part of the Equinix Singapore One-North Campus, SG1 is the most network-dense data center in the region and offers access to one of the three GRX peering points worldwide. It is also home to the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ in Singapore helping SG1 to be ranked as the #1 most connected data center worldwide by Cloudscene. After several weeks of careful preparation CVE design and network engineers diligently worked throughout the night to complete this sizable migration in under 24 hours. This was the first Equinix Gen q2.0 migration in Asia-PAC to complete within the expected migration window. Up next, the team will be focusing on the preparation for SG2, also in Singapore.
