CPLANE NETWORKS Announces General Availability of Dynamic Virtual Networks

CPLANE NETWORKS, the leader in high-performance Software-Defined Networking (SDN), today announced the general availability of Dynamic Virtual Networks (DVN). DVN transforms static physical networks into virtualized resource pools that can be allocated on demand, significantly reducing the time and cost to deploy cloud applications.

“Enterprises and cloud service providers are moving from static infrastructure configuration to dynamic service orchestration,” said Brandon Williams, CEO of CPLANE NETWORKS. “OpenStack is the open source platform of choice for private and hybrid clouds. And we are Built for OpenStackTM.”

DVN is a software-only solution that seamlessly integrates with the OpenStack framework. “We replace the standard OpenStack Neutron network service with our scalable SDN controller to create high performance, highly available virtualized networks,” said John Casey, CTO and VP of Engineering. “We’ve eliminated a performance bottleneck and single point of failure in the Neutron network service – the Network Node. With DVN routing between virtual machines is now only a single hop.”

DVN streamlines the entire OpenStack service life cycle, starting with easy, automated deployment. Network provisioning is “zero touch” since the SDN controller maintains a centralized view of network topology and state and automatically pushes the appropriate flow rules to the compute nodes. By placing critical network functions locally at the compute node, network performance is dramatically improved. Finally, by utilizing openly supported components such as VXLAN and Open vSwitch combined with open APIs, migration to new OpenStack releases and technologies is easy. Pricing is based on a monthly subscription fee per compute node.

“New Context is proud to be a CPLANE NETWORKS integrator as it solves a critical networking challenge with OpenStack allowing companies to be able to scale their cloud environments,” said Daniel Riedel, CEO of New Context, an early adopter of DVN. “We’re changing the face of OpenStack networking,” said Brandon Williams. “Customers can finally enjoy the full range of compute, storage and networking benefits of cloud services.”
