We’re taking another step towards making the Nuage Networks Virtuoso Certification Program (VCP) the industry’s premier SDN certification with a major release of courses, exams and other learning materials in early 2018.
Some of the new course material we’re introducing includes the VNS Operations course (available early Q2) and updates to existing courses, with a focus on new platform capabilities such as VSS (Virtualized Security Services) and many more. In Q3 of this year, we will al [...]
Recently, Nuage Networks has extended its Software-Defined Networking (SDN) platform to include Hyper-V support. As such, VXLAN overlay networks can be stretched across KVM, VMware, Hyper-V hypervisors and hardware VTEPs – all provisioned out of the same network policy system.
In this post, we are going to look how the Nuage Networks SDN for Hyper-V integration looks like, and we will demonstrate how to network across a heterogeneous environment of Hyper-V, KVM, VMware and Bar [...]
Coming out of last months Dockercon conference, a number of interesting trends are taking shape on the container networking front. SDxCentral reported on the push to standardize one of a couple of container networking models, called CNI, here. Standardizing networking and orchestration in the container space will really help take the technology mainstream and build a healthy ecosystem of technology providers. It might be a good time to provide a little history and context to these standardizatio [...]

Over the last few releases, we have been enhancing our support for container networking and security policies. We described the Nuage Networks VSP 4.0 functionality in previous blog posts, and here we will go into further detail on container-related capabilities.
Containers are well on their way to adoption in production environments, not only in startups, but also in enterprises and service providers. Over the past year, container orchestration has seen a lot of innovation across different [...]
More and more organizations are looking to apply software defined networking (SDN) concepts across their enterprise WAN, beyond the cloud and data center, to improve network and application performance while reducing the management overhead across remote sites and branches. While having a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) can provide a myriad of benefits to both service providers (on-demand VPN offerings, e.g.) as well as enterprise customers (for their own branch network management), there is one p [...]
At the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona one of our trail-blazing customers – BBVA bank – showcased how they are leveraging the Nuage Networks Virtualized Cloud Services (VCS) solution to deliver next-generation infrastructure provisioning services using OpenStack on top of Kubernetes.
The video recording of this talk – called “Next Generation Overlay for Kubernetes and OpenStack” is available here.
Using their extensive experience with [...]
Beyond the excellent training you’ll receive from courses in the Nuage Networks Virtuoso Certification Program, there are a lot of other great reasons to get a Virtuoso certification as highlighted in this post.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the certification program, we’re talking about Nuage Networks’ industry training and certification program. The program is designed for engineers, operations, installation, and support personnel involved with implementing networks an [...]
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 [...]
