Faction is a Multi-Cloud Platform as a Service company with nodes spanning 7 regions in US and Europe. They provide the underlying compute, storage, and network platforms for enterprise applications. In doubling their size in the last three years, Faction needed to purchase “bulletproof” infrastructure that could deliver secure and robust services to its clients – accommodating explosive growth and ever-increasing client demands, in a secure, high-performance environment.
Faction selected a suite of products from Extreme after evaluating various solutions from competitors – Extreme VDX 6740 Switches and VCS Fabric technology at all eight data centers, and Extreme MLXe and NetIron CER routers to provide Internet connectivity. This has resulted in Faction offering 10 times the bandwidth for one-third the cost and huge ROI in just 11 short months.
