Data Centre and Cloud

Data Centres and Cloud Infrastructures are solutions that enable ubiquitous access to a collection of storage resources, network resources, compute resources, and other resources over the internet. New architectural approaches to these cloud infrastructure systems have redefined the way data services are delivered to users. The transition to virtualized network functions (VNF) running on standard, high-volume servers can lower the total cost of ownership, and reduce the power consumption of data centres by more than 50 percent. Transitioning to VNF will also facilitate the creation of an entirely new open ecosystem that allows the development of applications and services at the network edge. This transformation opens the door for small and medium enterprises to enter the service provider market.


Project Scenarios:

  • Improving performance of low-latency network functions and network function virtualization infrastructure (NFVi) solutions.
  • Constructing systems and applications that can validate the performance of network solutions.
  • Creating operational support systems to maintain and operate cloud infrastructures.

The CENGN Advantage

We can help you validate your data centre or cloud solution with our cloud infrastructure services and help from our members and partners. Our members comprise of large Canadian service providers who are in the process of transitioning to next generation network infrastructures. By leveraging our Proof-of-concept (PoC) environment, you will be able to showcase your cloud infrastructure and data centre solutions to some of the biggest leaders in ICT.
