PCCW Global has selected a service and orchestration tool for its cloud platform, allowing PCCW's customers to use a self-service interface to quickly and easily build clouds that span multiple sites.
PCCW Ltd. (NYSE: PCW; Hong Kong: 0008) will use CPLANE NETWORKS ' OpenStack Product Suite for multi-site and multi-tenant networking and lifecycle service orchestration for the PCCW Global Inter-Domain Cloud Federation service, CPLANE says in an announcement scheduled to hit next Tuesday.
The CPLANE Dynamic Virtual Networks - Data Center (DVNd) product is designed to provide OpenStack SDN Networking for high-performance virtual machine communication, easy operations and service assurance across multi-site OpenStack deployments worldwide.
CPLANE's Multi-Site Manager is designed to create a single cloud image across multiple sites, consolidating PCCW Global's customer portal and OSS/BSS and providing a single view of the customer, CPLANE says.
PCCW is the international operating division of HKT Ltd. , covering more than 3,000 cities and 140 countries.
Customer self-service is a hallmark of New IP networks. Enterprises doing business with comms companies need to be able to configure their own networks and services for themselves, faster than service people can do it for them.
