MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Nuage Networks, the Alcatel-Lucent venture focused on software-defined networking (SDN) solutions, announced today that China Mobile (Suzhou) Software Technology Company Limited has deployed Nuage SDN technology in its Development and Operations (DevOps) private cloud architecture.
Based on open-source software and industry-standard hardware, China Mobile’s private cloud architecture includes Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) to deliver the functionality and scalability required for its internal subsidiaries and for developing new cloud-based services.
In addition to providing scalability for one of the world’s largest companies, Nuage Networks VSP overlays and unifies (or “federates”) China Mobile’s existing widely distributed networking environments. Each subsidiary is allocated its own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) composed of resources located in one or multiple datacenters – yet seamlessly connected and accessible anywhere in the cloud. Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Assurance Platform (VSAP) provides full visibility between the virtual and physical environments for each VPC and the federated cloud.
Each VPC is isolated and secure – internally and externally – at the virtual machine (VM) level using
Nuage Networks VSP’s network microsegmentation capabilities, which protect against “east-west” malware penetration attempts within each datacenter, within each VPC and within the federated cloud. Datacenter communications between hypervisors are also protected. While China Mobile’s cloud team may prevent subsidiaries from overriding centralized security policies, each subsidiary may refine security parameters within its allocated VPC. As a result, each subsidiary will enjoy programmability and security controls along with the cost efficiencies of the China Mobile cloud.
