Announces NCX support for OpenStack as VIM and compliance with ETSI NFV

MILPITAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 12, 2015–

Anuta Networks, the leading provider of network services orchestration solutions, today announced support for OpenStack Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM) and compliance with ETSI NFV. The Anuta’s NCX support for OpenStack augments the existing support for VMware vCenter and ESXi hypervisors to enable true multi-vendor NFV.

More and more service providers (SPs) are relying on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), an ETSI industry specification, to achieve on-demand delivery of network services by avoiding long hardware deployment cycles. ETSI NFV supports dynamic workloads by scaling out virtual network functions (VNF) from multiple vendors using industry standard high volume servers, switches and storage infrastructures. These VNFs are developed to work with different hypervisors such as KVM, VMware ESXi, Citrix Xen and Microsoft Hyper-V.

“We are working with many service providers and we see significant momentum in Asia Pacific and EMEA regions to adopt NFV to improve operational efficiency and business agility,” said Chandu Guntakala, President and CEO, Anuta Networks. “The Cloud service providers are deploying OpenStack as a unified platform to manage their existing as well as next generation, multi-vendor hybrid infrastructures.”

The OpenStack framework has been proven in cloud deployments to provide true multi-hypervisor flexibility. In the evolution of NFV, OpenStack has become a critical component as it accelerates NFV adoption. Anuta NCX delivers comprehensive network service orchestration for physical network functions (PNF) as well as 30+ Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) from 20+ industry leading vendors.

“OpenStack has matured as a high-performance platform and supports many use-cases in production. With the support of OpenStack as VIM through northbound integration, we are expanding NCX coverage to multiple hypervisors,” said Srini Beereddy, CTO, Anuta Networks.

In January 2015, Anuta’s NCX 4.0 introduced a ML2 plugin which publishes network services to OpenStack users through southbound integration.

“The combined northbound and southbound integrations with Openstack offer unprecedented business value to our customers,” continued Srini. “Service providers will have the flexibility to use multiple vendors, physical or virtual network functions supporting multiple hypervisor platforms and integrate with OpenStack self-service frameworks.”
