Nuage Networks Delivers SDN Integration with Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux

New Integration Delivers Choice and Interoperability to Customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 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."

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.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
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.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
