Radisys NFVI Solution @ Verizon
Radisys and Verizon deliver the first large-scale cloud storage platform using DCEngine.
The installation consists of hundreds of DCEngine pods, which are serving Verizon’s cloud storage customers. The unique pluggable nature of storage and compute sleds have enabled Verizon to scale on-demand and achieve elastic cloud-based storage to serve its customer base. In addition, as part of its SDN-enabled service delivery platform, Verizon has chosen the FlowEngine.
|Key Customers||Verizon is a key and ongoing customer for Radisys NFVI Solution, having deployed both DCEngine and FlowEngine. New customer announcements are anticipated later in 2017.|
|Industry Standards Participation||Open Compute Project (OCP) and OPNFV|
|Linux Foundation Projects||CORD, ONOS, FD.IO, OpenDaylight, OVS and SR-IOV|
|Linux Container Support||Radisys DCEngine can host Linux containers such as Docker. Applications may be deployed on top of a VIM inside virtual machines, or directly inside Linux containers to enable DevOps.|
|Product Differentiation||DCEngine provides the widest choice for compute and storage sleds of any NFVI platform. Operators can choose from any OCP-compliant sled provided by suppliers. All of these sleds can seamlessly plug into the CG-OpenRack-19 compliant DCEngine rack. Radisys’ Professional Services offer expert systems integration and blueprint support, pre-integrating customer NFV software frameworks on top of DCEngine racks ahead of delivery, allowing DCEngine to be deployed in days, not months. DCEngine comes pre-integrated with FlowEngine. This presents a unique proposition to customers as FlowEngine provides a means for operators to become SDN-ready in addition to porting their applications on the DCEngine NFVI.|
