Nuage Networks has partnered with Red Hat to deliver SDN-based hybrid cloud solutions that maximize the effectiveness of the datacenter infrastructure by making them more agile, flexible and automated. The solution leverages Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack® Platform (RHEL OSP), an open and scalable platform for building public and private clouds.

With the Nuage Networks – Red Hat cloud solution you can:


  • Streamline management operations and improve agility by abstracting application networking requirements from the physical network

  • Ensure compliance with resource policies on a per-tenant and per-application basis, using simplified application terms to define Level 2-4 network requirements

  • Respond quickly to changing cloud application requirements, with event-driven automatic service instantiation

  • Improve server utilization and support cloud bursting and hybrid cloud services through seamless interoperability across multiple administrative domains

“Red Hat has experienced tremendous business value working with Nuage Networks since this partnership was formed in June 2013. Together, we have closed many high profile deals, helping customers build private clouds, and we look forward to growing this partnership!”

– John Bleuer, Vice President, Global Alliances, Red Hat

“Working closely with a leading SDN supplier like Nuage Networks is critical to building highly reliable networked cloud platforms as part of hardened OpenStack-based solutions. We are pleased to collaborate with the team at Nuage Networks, who have a wealth of expertise in routing and networking standards and can bring the networking capabilities of some of the largest networks in the world to cloud application delivery in the enterprise datacenter environment.”

— Mike Werner, Senior Director, Global Ecosystems, Red Hat
