[Note: This is part 1 of a 3-part blog post on Nuage Networks release 4.0. Part 2 | Part 3]
Over the past 12 months Nuage Networks has achieved a major product milestone with release 4.0 of our software, covering both Data Center SDN and SD-WAN product lines. While significantly enhancing the capabilities of both our DC and SD-WAN products, we are also introducing a software defined security solution that covers DC as well as branch as part of release 4.0.
As a leader in SDN and policy-bas [...]
In this episode of The New Stack Analysts, we look at how Nuage Networks is addressing container security through the use of Software Defined Networking (SDN).
To prepare our latest eBook: Networking, Security, and Storage with Docker and Containers, The New Stack founder Alex Williams and TNS eBook editor Benjamin Ball spoke with Nuage Networks Product Management and Marketing Leader Hari Krishnan and Nuage Networks Director of Product Line Management Harmeet Sahni.
When the rise of co [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
There are many use cases, deployment scenarios and benefits from an SDN-enabled datacenter, but perhaps the most common driver for SDN deployments today is security. While SDN has always delivered policy-based automation for network devices, applying the same techniques to multi-tenant cloud environments is a more urgent requirement because security policies (compared to network policies) are likely more complex, more application-specific, change more frequently, and encompass a wider range of d [...]
Today, in conjunction with the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo, Nuage Networks is announcing the addition of several new ecosystem partners that can be folded into virtual networks orchestrated by our Virtualized Services Platform (VSP). Along with these new security partners, Nuage is announcing a Solution Certification program that will ensure the interoperability of third party appliances and virtual solutions with the Nuage Networks SDN platforms.
The first security partner solutions to be cert [...]
I’ve managed, marketed, and implemented quite a few application and infrastructure offerings in the course of my career. This varied set of experiences has taught me that the line between a robust product and a true platform can be fuzzy.
For example, it’s frequently difficult to tell if a given offering is a product dressed as a platform or a platform that’s dressed as a product. Similarly, it’s hard to figure out if an offering is a true Software Defined Networking [...]
