Vello Intros Precision Application Networking
MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Vello Systems, a leading provider of software solutions that revolutionize how IT systems and services are deployed and consumed on standards-based hardware, today announced "Precision Application NetworkingTM" (PAN) software powering a new class of open, standards-based optical networking switches that will fundamentally change how network architectures are designed and deployed.
Today, traditional service providers, a new class of cloud service providers and efficiency-focused enterprises are all under significant pressure to monetize and manage the load of data-heavy applications such as high-definition video streaming, mobile data, cloud computing and Internet-connected devices. The new Vello-powered optical devices will relieve these pressure points by optimizing the packet/optical routing mix to determine the most efficient network paths for any given application, enabling service providers and enterprises to respond to dynamic service needs, while concurrently reducing operational cost and complexity. This allows users to increase utilization, create service-oriented network paths and dynamically adjust to changing network conditions. As a result, enterprises with hybrid or private clouds and service providers alike can better support dynamic application traffic, avoid costly over provisioning, mitigate wasted or “stranded” CAPEX spending and reduce planning cycles of current static networks.
The new standards-based PAN-powered solutions are a dramatic departure from today’s conventional large, expensive and power-hungry proprietary chassis-based optical systems. The PAN-powered hardware is currently being designed and developed by OEMs and the first systems are expected to be commercially available in late Q2 2014. These systems will not be Vello branded but will be fully interoperable will all of Vello’s software solutions.
