LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Pertino, a company reinventing networking for the cloud era, today announced the next milestone in bringing the benefits of cloud networking to small and medium businesses with Network Service Virtualization (NSV). NSV represents a service-based approach to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and it forms an integral part of the company's SDN-powered Cloud Network Engine platform. Unlike NFV, which is focused more on datacenter and carrier appliances, Pertino's NSV technology is designed to virtualize network functions that reside on WAN-edge appliances and endpoint systems and deliver them as cloud-based services to help eliminate cost and complexity associated with traditional hardware appliances. Pertino seeks to "unbox" networking for SMBs by enabling customers to deploy virtual network services on their Pertino cloud networks in just a few clicks and for just a few dollars a month.

Industry experts agree that SDN and NFV will experience massive growth in the near future. IDC analysts predict that the SDN market could reach $3.7 billion by 2016, while Doyle Research foresees that the NFV market will gain momentum in 2014 and reach $5 billion by 2018.

Pertino's NSV approach shares the NFV's goal of eliminating hardware appliances through virtualization, but differs significantly in implementation. NSV is designed to virtualize traditional WAN edge and endpoint functions -- such as mobile VPN, malware detection, WAN optimization, monitoring probes, and device-level firewalls -- and deliver them as cloud-based services that are instantiated in real-time, close to network users. This requires a portable network function library that can be moved to where user traffic originates rather than moving user traffic to a centralized function, as is the case with NFV. These portable functions rely on the Cloud Network Engine platform to provide unified configuration, data collection, and policy; enabling the provisioning of services to be done in minutes with just a few clicks. From a customer perspective, an IT pro can purchase and provision a set of services once for a user, based on identity, and they will automatically follow that user anywhere they go and on any device they use.
