New "Cloud-in-a-Rack" Leverages the Pluribus Freedom Server-Switch and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Controller
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Pluribus Networks, the company that brings together compute, network,
storage, and virtualization into a single platform, announced today its
first certified cloud controller solution based on the Pluribus Freedom
Server-Switch and the Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
controller. The company has also joined the Red
Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network, the world's
largest ecosystem for commercial OpenStack deployments. The
certification ensures that the Pluribus Freedom product line has been
tested and certified for use with the Red
Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform to provide consistent
performance and compatibility. Pluribus will demonstrate the new cloud
"cloud-in-a-rack" at the upcoming Red Hat Summit in the OpenStack
Pavilion, booth 917D, in San Francisco, April 14-17, 2014.
The certified solution eliminates additional hardware and support costs,
allowing the Freedom Server-Switch to operate as a full 'cloud
controller' by provisioning and managing servers, virtual machines,
storage, and even other switches. The converged solution addresses
customer challenges such as application migration, resource management,
application management, and simplification of IT management. The
integrated OpenStack controller onto the Server-Switch eliminates the
need for separatehardware.
"Together with Red Hat, we are delivering the 'cloud-in-a-rack'
experience, offering certified solutions that leverage our Freedom
Server-Switch with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
controllers," said Dave Ginsburg, CMO of Pluribus Networks. "The
Pluribus Networks Freedom Series Server Switch increases the velocity of
OpenStack deployments by consolidating the service platform and
mitigates risk by using the fully validated and supported Red Hat
Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform offering. With more than 150
companies supporting the mission of OpenStack today, enterprise users
understand more than ever the value of open networking."
The Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network connects both business
and technical resources to third-party technology companies who are
aligning with Red Hat's OpenStack
product offerings. Solutions that have
achieved Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Certification, or which are
certified for other products in Red Hat's open
hybrid cloud portfolio are available in the Red
Hat Certified Solution Marketplace.
"We're pleased to have Pluribus join us in the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud
Infrastructure Partner Network," said Mike Werner, senior director,
Global Ecosystems, Red Hat. "To help customers get the most out of Red
Hat's OpenStack offerings and our open hybrid cloud solutions, we work
closely with technology companies such as Pluribus that provide powerful
and complementary solutions. We look forward to continued collaboration
with Pluribus as a key member of Red Hat's OpenStack ecosystem."
