United States : CEO - PLUMGRID adds encryption, scalability and terabit performance to OPENSTACK networking [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A new player in network virtualization Plumgrid has unveiled a software suite that offers a scalable, superior virtual network overlay for OpenStack cloud environments.
The PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite is the maiden product based on the PLUMgrid Platform, a disbursed network software architecture that incorporates an orchestration and control component -- PLUMgrid Director -- and a multi-function programmable data plane known as IO Visor.
IO Visor has an external compiler, unlike data plane components of other software overlays,that enables engineers to load new data plane functions without a reboot, including functions that third-party software deliver. This capability boosts the resilience of OpenStack environments and enables data center operators to spin up new network functions without rebooting the general network service.
The PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite backs multiple distributions of OpenStack, but it is accredited to work with Red Hat's dispersion.
CEO and co-founder of PLUMgrid, Awais Nemat,said PLUMgrid adds encryption, measurability and terabit performance to OpenStack networking.
He said : "We've introduced encryption, whereby we provide provable isolation across virtual domains. All assets that belong to a virtual domain, as soon as that traffic leaves the hypervisor, are encrypted on a per-user, per-tenant and per-application basis."
He added : "As you add more servers, the performance keeps going up," he said. "If you have a virtual domain that spans over 25 physical servers, each with 40 Gbps of throughput, then every virtual network function that lives in that virtual domain -- the switch, the router, NAT Network address translation -- scales out to terabits of performance."
