NanoTech Entertainment Enhances Operations at Its Silicon Valley Datacenter [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NanoTech Entertainment announced the expansion of its online infrastructure in preparation of the release of its newest 4K UltraHD streaming services.

According to a release, NanoTech has extended its multi-year contract with Hurricane Electric for use of its datacenter in Fremont CA. NanoTech has expanded its lease with three times the footprint for its servers in the expansion of the Fremont 2 data center. The move enables NanoTech to keep pace with its expanding video library and storage demands as it builds out its 4K UltraHD Video library.

Jeffrey A. Foley, NanoTech CEO stated "This expansion allows us to support over 50,000 hours of video content. Given our continued expansion of HD, Over the Top, Video on Demand channels, combined with our new 4K UltraHD content, we need to be prepared for the increased demand on our infrastructure. Hurricane has been a great partner for us. They provide the world's largest IPv6 native Internet Backbone and a facility and support staff that is second to none." Foley continued "Given our exponential growth, and the amount of data that we will be streaming as we move from HD to 4K UltraHD, we require a solid basis for our technology. It is very important to have selected the best technology partners in this space as we migrate our global network to the IPV6 backbone.

According to University of California research presented at the International Measurement Conference (IMC) in November of 2012, Hurricane Electric is the most dominant Autonomous System (AS) in the global IPv6 transit topology. Employing resilient fiber-optic topology, Hurricane Electric has no less than four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia. Having first deployed IPv6 in 2001, Hurricane Electric offers IPv6 as a core service. "Our early investment in IPv6 is paying off not only for Hurricane Electric, but also for our customers around the world," said Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. "Given the depletion of the IPv4 address space, we expect continued strong growth in demand for IPv6 connectivity and services." Headquartered in San Jose, CA, NanoTech Entertainment is a technology company that focuses on all aspects of the entertainment industry.
