The Forrester report identifies ground-breaking vendors that help organizations virtualize their networking environment with the least amount of risk. Innovative firms are using virtual networking as a competitive business advantage.

According to the report, “Cloud is a diverse and complex hybrid pursuit, with 53% of enterprises leveraging two or more public cloud platforms. Yet, Forrester clients indicate that connecting multiple cloud platforms and private clouds challenges many organizations.”

Enterprise firms can leverage Nuage Networks to seamlessly connect their hybrid clouds. Nuage is one of the emerging vendors that can help teams make the shift with the least amount of risk by keeping options open, or allowing existing solutions to be easily integrated with other parts of VNI.

“Nuage Networks Virtual Services Platform (VSP) offers a single network policy framework that distributes business policies and network intelligence across containers, hypervisors, datacenters, and cloud platforms to link these islands,”, comments Andre Kindness, Principal Analyst, Forrester in the report. He continues, “Nuage Networks came to market during the first wave of SDN overlay solutions. Unlike others that have fallen off the map, Nuage Networks has developed a strong presence in the service provider market. As a result, its VSP has become the go-to solution for companies adopting Docker, OpenStack, and other open platforms and hardware.”

“We are honored to be selected as a Forrester Breakout vendor, said Sunil Khandekar, CEO and Founder of Nuage Networks, “For us, this recognition validates our momentum and commitment to providing an open, policy driven network automation solution that works seamlessly across all environments in the DC and the WAN to deliver on the promise of the cloud.”
