Aug 26, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Avaya announced it will demonstrate its Software-Defined Data Center framework at VMworld 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco through Aug. 29.
In a release, the Company noted that the Avaya Software-Defined Data Center framework aims to break down traditional data center silos that require weeks or months to turn up an application and replace it with a simple five-step process that takes minutes.
The Avaya SDDC framework includes an orchestration process that combines, customizes and commissions compute, storage and network components. Use of the OpenStack cloud computing platform will allow data center administrations to deploy virtual machines, assign storage and configure networks through a single graphical user interface.
The Avaya SDDC framework is based on:
-Avaya Fabric Connect technology as the virtual backbone to interconnect resource pools within and between data centers with increased flexibility and scale
-An Avaya OpenStack Horizon-based Management Platform, delivering orchestration for compute (Nova), storage (Cinder/Swift) and network via Avaya Fabric Connect (Neutron)
-Open APIs into the Avaya Fabric Connect architecture for ease of integration, customization and interoperability with other Software-Defined Networking architectures
"Avaya continues to innovate the way that networks are designed, built and operated, leveraging the unique capabilities of our Fabric Connect technology. This announcement demonstrates that enterprises can immediately realize the operational benefits of real-time orchestration and automation. While some remain hung-up on definitions of SDN and what it might to deliver in the future, Avaya is delivering tangible business benefits today," said Marc Randall, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Avaya Networking.
