Leaseweb has used the packet-optical transport platforms for data center interconnect in North America. Infinera says its customer also will use the Groove G30 for similar purposes in the UK and the Netherlands.
Leaseweb serves 18,000 customers in small to medium businesses and enterprises, predominately within the gaming, marketing technology, advertising technology, managed services, and SaaS niches. It operates 20 data centers spread across North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia.
