The Nuage Networks video series explains how Nuage Networks removes obstacles that stifle the cloud in traditional networks. You can view the full series by visiting the Nuage Networks SDxCentral video page.
For the cloud to reach its full potential, today’s network architectures must change, and Nuage Networks says software-defined networking (SDN) provides the path to do it. A new video from Nuage Networks explains how SDN helps organizations move from a complex, expensive, and static network to one that is highly programmable and dynamically adjusts to IT demands.
“Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform – Delivering the Power of Now to Data Center Networks and Beyond” highlights the company’s Virtualized Services Platform (VSP), an open platform that allows organizations to automate network infrastructure. The video is the final installment in a series looking at how the company is removing the constraints holding back the cloud.
The video walks through how VSP automates and scales the network service layer by using policy-based service management. Designed to help organizations deliver dynamic network services with automated provisioning, VSP is comprised of three software-based products:
- Virtualized Services Directory (VSD): Turns network services into reusable policy templates to simplify application deployments
- Virtualized Services Controller (VSC): Programs network devices in the control plane
- Virtualized Routing and Switching (VRS): Handles data forwarding
Virtualized Services Platform solution integrates easily into existing networks and supports any hypervisor, data center switch, or cloud management system. The video explains how VSP deploys applications by using cloud orchestration software to instantiate new virtual machines in the data center.
By putting the focus back on the application and automating the instantiation of network services, organizations can make the network as instantly consumable as the application and compute platform functions, the video says. Using VSP enables organizations to create a virtualized network services layer that provides instant network service delivery to thousands of tenants.
