IP Infusion Announces General Availability of ZebOS-XP® Release 1.1

IP Infusion, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced Ethernet and IP services, today announced the general availability of ZebOS-XP® Release 1.1 which adds greater network scalability, bandwidth scaling, and redundancy to the network platform.

ZebOS-XP is a next generation network platform designed to help build today’s and tomorrow’s terabit scale networks and network devices. The ZebOS-XP (ZebOS Extended Performance) software architecture delivers superior scaling and performance to support current and future multiprocessor hardware platforms, helping ensure future scalability. ZebOS-XP has the critical software-defined networking (SDN) ready features with an end-to-end solution for fast, time-to-market implementation of next generation networks.

This Release 1.1 features support for new features and enhancements including:

  • McLAG-based bisectional bandwidth scaling – adds support for Multi-chassis Link aggregation for Layer 2 switching to increase bandwidth and will provide both link and node level redundancy.
  • Virtual Private LAN Service enhancements – provides additional support for tagged mode VPLS (VPLS type ETH_VLAN).
  • MPLS scalability – features significant improvements in scalability and performance of LDP-RSVP-TE modules.
  • High Availability – provides Nonstop Forwarding with Stateful Switchover (SSO) support for OSPF protocol.
  • Unicast and multicast routing enhancements – adds OSPF extensions for support of RFC 1793 and updates to Bidirectional Protocol Independent Multicasting.
  • 64 bit protocol and Symmetric Multiprocessing Safe Support – is now 64 bit compliant and tested for SMP safe validation for all protocol modules.
  • Additional operating system support – supports WRL 5.0, Kernel version 3.4.10; Fedora 17, Kernel version 3.4.44; and VxWorks – 6.9 (Basic L2, L3 protocols only).

“Next generation networks require software solutions that can deliver more bandwidth, larger networks and redundancy for continuous operations to meet the expanding need of mobile device users, Big Data and software-defined networks,” said Kiyoyasu Oishi, CEO and president of IP Infusion. “With this latest release, network equipment manufacturers gain greater bandwidth scaling, network scalability, high availability and improved routing support to meet their challenges of routing increasing amounts of data.”

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The best way to leverage your Cloud Expo presence as a sponsor and exhibitor is to plan your news announcements around our events. The press covering Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo will have access to these releases and will amplify your news announcements. More than two dozen Cloud companies either set deals at our shows or have announced their mergers and acquisitions at Cloud Expo. Product announcements during our show provide your company with the most reach through our targeted audiences.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
