PLUMGrid Beefs Up SDN Services for OpenStack Cloud Connectivity
PLUMgrid, which provides SDN and NFV solutions for OpenStack Cloud, on Tuesday upgraded its Open Networking Suite with support for the latest version of OpenStack as well as new management tools.
ONS 5.0 now supports OpenStack releases Kilo and Liberty for enterprises and service providers.
"ONS 5.0 enables data centers with virtual machines, containers and bare metal architectures to leverage SDN overlays to provide secure micro-segmentation for multi-tenancy, traffic isolation and policy enforcement," PlumGrid Inc. said in a statement. The software provides SDN support for Docker containers, expanded gateway integration to permit connectivity with Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) Nexus 9000, IPv6 and other enhancements.
ONS 5.0 builds on PLUMgrid's CloudApex tool for cloud monitoring, announced in beta late last year and now available. ONS 5.0 includes additional tools and wizards to allow customers to troubleshoot, install and monitor networks. "OpenStack operators are constantly looking for more visibility of the network, more tooling to manage the networks, and we are supplying a lot of these tools and wizards to make operations of OpenStack easier," Wendy Cartee, PLUMgrid VP of product management and marketing, tells Light Reading.
