Worldstream Releases Software-Defined Network with MSP Deltics as Launching Partner
The development of the Worldstream Elastic Network (WEN) took Worldstream's R&D engineering team more than a year. WEN is a software-defined network (SDN) using EVPN VXLAN technology. This SDN is built on top of Worldstream's global network backbone with 10Tbit/s of bandwidth capacity.
The backup & disaster recovery solutions launched by Deltics and based on the Worldstream Elastic Network constitute an initial selection of the new proposition options which MSP Deltics has identified by using Worldstream's SDN platform.

"Based on WEN we can now install a plug & play failover data center location. In data centers where the underlying Worldstream network backbone has a network PoP," says Rob Bultman, Commercial Director at Deltics. "Setting up such a backup & disaster recovery solution has suddenly become very easy. It offers us cloud-oriented flexibility, which is in line with the consumer-based IT needs of our customers. In the areas of security, latency and performance, the use of Worldstream's SDN also offers considerable added value for our customers - against a cost reduction of about 50 percent."
"Previously, we had to install a separate network feed for disaster recovery data center locations," says Bultman. "Underneath, the feed then consisted of 5 to 6 network providers, which often made it fairly complex and not entirely transparent. A lot of things also had to be arranged technically first, which usually took quite a lot of engineering time. In addition, in terms of performance there weren't any guarantees unless you're willing to pay a lot of money for deploying your own fibers."
