The Latest from ATLDC
ATLDC has completed an expansion of its connection capacity to the 55 Marietta MMR operated by Bank Building Limited Partnerships.
ATLDC/TULIX has added two twelve strand Single Mode fiber runs between the Data Center and the MMR. This allows for the addition of up to twelve additional Internet Service Providers to ATLDC’s blended network. It can also be used to provide clients with direct cross connects if needed.
“This addition allows us, especially with our latest switch upgrade, to add twelve new ISPs.’ Announced Tom Burling with ATLDC, ‘It is our current target to have four of those in place before the end of the year. We can now also offer direct cross connects to the service providers the MMR has in place”
ATLDC/TULIX continues to grow and continues to add more and more bandwidth capacity. Currently Level 3, Telia Sonera, Cogent and GTT all have a presence in the data center and are a part of the network. Additionally, other providers are offering direct cross connects to various clients. As the number of ISPs in the mix expands ATLDC/TULIX can not only provide more bandwidth, but is less dependent upon any single ISPs performance.
“We are making a deliberate effort to put in place a network that is immune to disruption. We have emphasized the creation of multiple physical paths into the data center and multiple carriers, dependent on none,” continued Burling.
ATLDC has also enabled IPV6 recently in its continuing list of network improvements to offer better, fuller service to its partners.
There is also an ongoing project to further improve the switching infrastructure. ATLDC recently added a CISCO Nexus 7000 to its internal structure allowing even more enhanced switching capabilities. With a new CISCO CRS and CISCO Nexus ATLDC/TULIX has not only improved the performance of its ability to handle traditional traffic and its media streaming unit; but has also set the stage for a major launch and expansion of its Cloud capabilities.
The CISCO CRS is a dramatic step forward in network performance.
“To deliver video, cloud, and mobile services effectively, service providers need to migrate their 10G network infrastructures to 100G and beyond. They also recognize the importance of scaling economically and quickly adapting to topology shifts.
What's the best way to do all this? With an elastic core that's intelligent, programmable, and scalable. An elastic core with the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS-X), which can:
-Deliver continuous operations at 400 Gbps per slot
-Offer industry-leading scale from a single chassis to a multichassis system
-Support 100G speeds and beyond using programmable Cisco nLight Technology
-Combine intelligent IP, lean core transit, and optical transport services
-Improve network monetization through intelligent Layer 4-7 services”

ATLDC not only has multiple 10 Gbps connections to the Internet, we also use a 10 Gbps infrastructure internally between our edge devices (most data centers only provide 1 or 2 Gbps) and switches. This provides top speeds to our individual clients.ATLDC continues to expand the capacity of its internet connection footprint. Currently having 40 + Gbps capacity ATLDC is arranging 30 more. Current usage stands at an average of 10 Gbps. ATLDC's goal is to keep a minimum N+3 network configuration.ATLDC uses Internap FCPs and Noction route management to insure optimal routing. These devices route traffic based both on speed of delivery (milliseconds) and quality of delivery (packet loss). This technology determines the fastest route by which to deliver content to a recipient as opposed to accepting standard provider routes.ATLDC is fed by four different geographically unique fiber connections. This prevents service interruption should any single path be damaged for any reason.
ATLDC is the Data Center operations arm of Tulix Systems, Inc. With over 8,000 square feet of space in Atlanta, GA ATLDC has been operating data centers since the mid-nineties.
