[Case Study] Markley Network Fabric

BACKGROUND & CHALLENGES
To meet the real-time data requirements and critical operational demands of the biotech industry, reliable Internet and cloud access on-site is more important than ever. Companies and researchers depend on the network for communication, operations, data-sharing, and information storage. Their data includes years of research and insights, and it needs to be accessible, manageable, and highly available. In addition, the high-powered equipment that is needed to advance research demands flexible and reliable access to data. Technium’s Venture Capital Customer—with many biotech’s under its umbrella—was constructing a new building where three biotech companies would reside.
Each company shared these commonalities:
- All on the precipice of significant growth
- A desire to switch to Amazon Direct Connect— a network service that provides an alternative to using the Internet to utilize AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud services
- Had data usage needs for their current state, but would need to scale up at a moment’s notice
The Markley Network Fabric has been installed and in use for approximately one year at the time of this case study’s publishing. The installation and use, so far, have gone without a hitch. In the words of Technium’s Co-Founder & CTO, Michael Joseph, “The design was done right and done well—once.” The biotech’s can confidently move forward with their research and work at full speed knowing they have the technology and security to get them there.
