QTS Case Study

Here's how QTS and PacketFabric teamed up to expand access to service offerings to their customers

The Challenge

QTS customers required robust connectivity to resources outside the datacenter, such as public / private clouds, redundant locations, Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), and Internet Service providers. The traditional method for obtaining that connectivity was slow and required inflexible, long-term commitments.

The Solution

QTS integrated PacketFabric’s on-demand Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform into the QTS Switchboard service offering.

PacketFabric extended its private network to multiple QTS data centers as additional Points of Presence (PoPs). This mutually beneficial partnership gives QTS customers access to every location on PacketFabric’s massive footprint. Bringing up new network connectivity can now be done in minutes.

QTS has expanded its hybrid cloud solutions, giving customers fast, secure, and scalable connectivity with immediate visibility and control over their network traffic.

QTS customers are able to meet the demands of bandwidth-intensive applications and workloads,
as well as instantly provision capacity to any other network, cloud service provider, or facility in the PacketFabric ecosystem.

PacketFabric gives QTS customers instant access to:

  • 50Mbps to multi-100G connectivity
  • Multiple public cloud platforms, including AWS, Cloudflare, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, and Webex.
  • Multiple private cloud platforms
  • Internet Exchange Points (IXPs)
  • Internet Service Providers (ISPs)
  • Nearly 300 colocation facilities / datacenters

Customers of both companies benefit from this partnership: QTS customers can instantly reach new ecosystems, while PacketFabric customers gain additional locations and destinations.
