PacketFront Software enters data center market

PacketFront Software announced further development of the BECS network automation solution to include data center management.

Even if the spinning up of servers is today a highly automated process, the network infrastructure connecting servers is still mainly managed manually. BECS can now automate even this part of the process providing the staff operating data centers the capabilities to activate / deactivate services end-to-end in seconds instead of days and weeks.

“Entering the fast growing data center market is a strategic decision for us. We have high expectations that our investment in this sector will bear first fruits during 2017 helping us to further accelerate our already high growth.” says Jan Kettnaker, CEO of PacketFront Software.
