Last week Nuage Networks participated in Network Field Day (NFD12), a bi-annual tour of leading networking experts and bloggers through Silicon Valley and San Francisco catching up on the latest and greatest trends in cloud networking and security. The event was streamed online, but for those that missed it, the recordings of the presentations and demos, and the slides themselves are captured below.
We made several new announcements and previewed some upcoming features, so it’s well worth pa [...]
This week Nuage Networks released a white paper validating compliance of our latest 4.0 release with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure consumer protection. As the payment processing chain undergoes rapid evolution as more and more transactions migrate online, while major processing infrastructures migrate to shar [...]
OpenShift Ecosystem: Nuage Networks Delivers Policy-based Networking and Security for Red Hat OpenShift
Modern cloud applications are increasingly being developed using lightweight, modular container formats for server virtualization as opposed to traditional virtual machines. To facilitate the automation, monitoring and management of container-based applications and infrastructures, Red Hat® has developed the Red Hat OpenShift container management solution. OpenShift adds developer and operation-centric tools to accelerate application development, deployment and long-term lifecycle maintenance o [...]
The modern tech business is all about networking infrastructure. For a leading company, the power to communicate effectively with its IT assets is vital. However, that same networking can be a wall to development process; how does a team develop for an environment that is always shifting and changing? Removing the networking concern is a top priority for any business that wants to be efficient and agile.
To shed some light on dealing with networking, John Furrier (@furrier) and Brian Gracely [...]
On a bright spring day just three years back we found ourselves in Portland, at the rapidly growing OpenStack Summit. ONUG had also just been formed, an organization that would grow just as rapidly in its appeal and influence. Open was the way, and the game was on. “I don’t care that it’s SDN. I care only if it solves my problem in an open way,” asserted one of the pioneers of the ONUG community repeatedly as wave after wave of “SDN-washing” rippled around him. The industry was certa [...]

This year there are 18 honorees, all of them deserving of recognition and praise. The Red Hat telco/ICT team is thrilled that Nuage Networks was chosen as Industry Solution Partner of the Year [...]
This week Nuage Networks is attending the Palo Alto Networks Ignite Cybersecurity Conference in sunny Las Vegas. Security policy orchestration in cloud networks has become a leading use case for SDN overlay networks, and we are showing off our capabilities with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Next-Generation Firewalls along with Mirantis OpenStack cloud orchestration. The end result is a highly scalable, easily managed, secure infrastructure for large enterprises, service providers and carrier grad [...]
As described in this blog post, we have recently launched a preview of our integration with the RedHat OpenShift platform, bringing the power of policy-driven networking to container-based application and microservices.
One of the important aspects of the Kubernetes-based platforms – like e.g. RedHat OpenShift -- is the flexibility of using labels to describe application-level metadata. When used in conjunction with Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform, labels can be used to express [...]
