A couple of SD-WAN enhancements, some big supercomputing bandwidth, and a new data center tenant:

Aryaka is taking aim at a broader swath of the SD-WAN market. Today they unveiled a new SmartServices platform that incorporates connectivity-as-a-services with both global and regional tiers, network and application acceleration as-a-service, multi-cloud networking, and security-as-a-service. Aryaka is looking to carve out a bigger piece of the SD-WAN market between the vendors and the traditional service providers.

Also in the SD-WAN world, Orange Business Services is adding some new capabilities to its SD-WAN portfolio. They have selected Fortinet's Secure SD-WAN solution as an additional option for the company's global enterprise customers. Orange Business had already been using Fortinet's firewall solutions, but will now offer the combined, fully integrated solution as well.

CenturyLink and Infinera have teamed up to bring multi-terabit connectivity to the SC19 conference this week. CenturyLink supplied the fiber and Infinera supplied its Groove G30 platform, deploying a 2x600Gbps metro wavelength solution to Denver's Colorado Convention Center for SCinet. SCinet is the dedicated high capacity network used by supercomputers to transmit the vast quantities of data that suppercomputers consume and generate.

Cologix has a new tenant out in Columbus, Ohio. Zadara Storage has deployed its enterprise cloud storage platform at the facility, leveraging its on-ramp to AWS and other ecosystem options. It's an expansion on an existing relationship, as Zadara did the same thing in Montreal earlier this year. Cologix entered the Columbus market five years ago with the acquisition of DataCenter.BZ and last year built a third data center on that campus.
