Executive Summary

Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Peak 10 is a leading independent data center operator and provider of managed services, delivering scalable, economical, and reliable solutions. The company provides services that include hosting and managing complex information technology infrastructure. Peak 10 combines its 15 data centers and portfolio of managed services with localized engineering and support to serve market-leading companies. The company primarily uses Cisco products across the board, including several data center and switching products such as the Cisco 7600 Series Routers and Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches. Peak 10's customer server configurations are dependent on individual customers, who typically co-locate their infrastructure into the Peak 10 data center. The Network Engineering business goal of offering the highest level of service over copper and the ability to limit rates was a key driver for Peak 10. The ability to control the rate of traffic and reduced footprint of the Cisco Catalyst 4948 Switches were among the biggest selling factors for the selection. The rate-limiting abilities and processing throughput capabilities were a huge selling point for Peak 10. The largest benefit that the Cisco Catalyst 4948 has brought to Peak 10 is the ability to offer customers the rate levels that they desire. Customers no longer have to bother about the costs or get a huge monthly bill as they only want local access in the market.
