Nuage Networks Delivers SDN Integration with Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux

-- New Integration Delivers Choice and Interoperability to Customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuage Networks, the Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) venture focused on software-defined networking (SDN) solutions, will provide support for Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux. The integration can enable greater choice and interoperability to enterprises and cloud providers, helping them to take advantage of the efficiency, performance, scalability, and policy-based automation of SDN in cloud environments.

Nuage Networks is committed to accelerating efforts to move customers toward cloud architectures that meld application-driven virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN) technology with open technology platforms. Nuage has been working together with Oracle to test Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux.

"Nuage Networks provides customers with valuable SDN capabilities. Its plug-in for Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux allows customers to benefit from our enterprise-grade solutions to further enhance their OpenStack environments," said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle.

These solutions, which include capabilities across the data center network, can offer customers virtually seamless management for virtualized and non-virtualized infrastructures. Nuage Networks helps to virtualize and automate data center network infrastructure, transforming it into a reflexive environment that instantaneously establishes the network services required to deliver cloud applications across thousands of tenants in a policy-driven manner. The Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) lays the foundation for an open and dynamically controlled data center network fabric to accelerate application programmability, facilitate unconstrained mobility, and maximize compute efficiency for cloud service providers, Web scale operators and leading tech enterprises across the globe.

"We're pleased to work with Oracle on this Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux integration. It provides choice in an open cloud solution, optimized for enterprise workloads to mutual customers worldwide," said Sunil Khandekar, CEO of Nuage Networks. "This is great news for the OpenStack community as we continue to show momentum with OpenStack in enterprise and cloud provider deployments."

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
Here to help unpack insights into the new era of using containers to gain ease with multi-cloud deployments are our panelists: Matt Baldwin, Founder and CEO at StackPointCloud, based in Seattle; Nic Jackson, Developer Advocate at HashiCorp, based in San Francisco, and Reynold Harbin, Director of Product Marketing at DigitalOcean, based in New York. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle.
