Cyan collabore avec Telefónica et Red Hat pour bâtir une architecture déterministe NFV

Cyan (NYSE : CYNI), l'un des principaux fournisseurs de solutions SDN (Software-defined Networking), NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) et de transport optique de paquets aux opérateurs de réseaux, a annoncé aujourd'hui sa collaboration avec Telefónica et Red Hat dans le but de bâtir une architecture de virtualisation des fonctions réseau (NFV) permettant de déployer de manière déterministe des fonctions réseau virtualisées (VNF, virtualized network functions). Cyan délivre l'orchestrateur NFV qui utilisera les améliorations apportées à OpenStack et développées par Red Hat en étroite collaboration avec Telefónica.

« Telefónica considère que la NFV une technologie clé et évolutive, » a expliqué Enrique Algaba, directeur de l'innovation réseau et de la virtualisation de l'unité CTO I+D-Global de Telefónica. « Nous pensons qu'une attribution déterministe de SCT, mémoire, E/S et de stockage adaptée au type spécifique de fonctions VNF réseau est indispensable pour obtenir les performances requises par les fonctions réseau telco. Cette nouvelle architecture déterministe transforme un centre de données générique en nuage en une structure Telco compatible avec la NFV. »

Le logiciel SDN Blue Planet de Cyan sera conçu grâce à OpenStack de Red Hat Enterprise Linux, pour orchestrer l'hébergement déterministe de fonctions réseau virtuelles par l'infrastructure du serveur afin de maximiser leurs performances.

« Cyan est fière de prendre part à un project technologique aussi novateur en collaboration avec des chefs de file de l'industrie tels que Telefónica et Red Hat, » a déclaré Michael Hatfield, Président de Cyan. « Le logiciel Blue Planet de Cyan est un orchestrateur NFV multi-plateforme garantissant aux prestataires de services de communications (CSP) de pouvoir utiliser avec succès cette architecture pour une gamme variée d'applications. »

« La virtualisation des fonctions réseau offre aux CSP la possibilité de réduire leurs frais d'infrastructure grâce à une structure réseau et gestion plus simple, tout en augmentant la visualisation et diminuant les délais de retour sur investissement, » a déclaré Radhesh Balakrishnan, directeur général, Virtualisation et OpenStack, Red Hat. « Avec OpenStack, la NFV permet réellement de révolutionner la manière dont les prestataires de services de communications élaborent et gèrent leurs réseaux. Nous sommes heureux de continuer à collaborer avec Cyan et Telefónica pour doter OpenStack de la puissance de la FNV. »

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions?

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry – resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his general session at 17th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, an IBM Company, broke down what we have to work with, discussed the benefits and pitfalls and how we can best use them to design hosted applications.
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
