Nuage Networks continues to build momentum across Greater China for software-defined infrastructure for the data center cloud, as well as the WAN. Recent deals, and the increasing size and scope of cloud deployments, show that China is taking a leadership position in rolling out SDN/ SD-WAN, and taking advantage of the network automation that solutions from Nuage Networks can deliver.
Today, we announced that China Mobile (CMCC) selected Nuage Networks’ Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) t [...]
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 [...]
Today, Exponential-e, a UK provider of cloud connectivity, business Internet and IT services, announced that they would be using Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS) platform as the basis for newly announced SD-WAN services that they are rolling out to customers. Exponential-e is a leader in WAN service delivery with a 100GigE core network, including MPLS VPNs, with enterprise-grade security and end-to-end Service Level Agreements (SLAs). They are the UK’s pioneer of corporate Vir [...]
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 [...]
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 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 [...]
At the leading Kubernetes and container networking conference, KubeCon 2016, in London this week, Nuage Networks is demonstrating support for OpenShift, the PaaS automation solution for container deployments from Red Hat.
At KubeCon, the Spotlight is on Container Networking
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 [...]
Yesterday, as part of Tech Field Day NFD10, we announced a new community project to allow developers and our customers to customize the Nuage Virtualized Services Directory (VSD) to their environments. Through this github collaboration, custom scripts for network automation, control or visibility can be developed and shared by our customer community.
Through the vspk (Nuage VSP SDK), Nuage users can
Download the latest & most useful tools to make their Nuage experience as smooth as [...]
Docker and Containers are taking the application development world by storm, but with all of their benefits there are some limitations and challenges. One key challenge is security between containers, especially when those containers are in different security zones. The early adopters of containers at scale (e.g. Google, Twitter, Apple) have fairly consistent security requirements across their applications. In areas like Financial Services and Medical Records, companies have widely different sec [...]
