Custodian Data Centers stays at the forefront of technical innovation with M-series
Located on the same site as television production facility Maidstone Studios, Custodian Data Centers provides a safe and resilient environment for the IT infrastructure of their colocation clients. As the company continues to grow and mature Custodian needed to increase the bandwidth between its sites to meet the expanding requirements from its growing customer base.
After an early conclusion to move away from renting individual wavelengths from service providers to leasing dark fiber, Custodian surveyed the DWDM market for a solution that would allow them to maximize their fiber infrastructure usage. As research revealed that many of the traditional approaches to DWDM were better suited to carriers than the data center market, being prohibitively expensive and complicated to maintain, eyes were turned to Smartoptics and the M-Series platform.
