Alca-Lu spinoff Nuage plugs into Oracle SDN

Alcatel-Lucent's Nuage software-defined networking (SDN) venture has announced that it's adding Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux integration to its stack.

Nuage, which spun out of Alca-Lu in April 2013, with the aim of splitting its SDN and network function virtualisation (NFV) work from the tyranny of the installed base. Its virtualised service platform (VSP) is designed as an abstraction layer for multi-tenant data centres with Layer 2, 3 and 4 services.

Its first release was, however, lined up with the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch Ethernet kit.

With the Oracle OpenStack integration, shipping as a plugin for the Nuage environment, the company reckons its offering “lays the foundation for an open and dynamically controlled data centre network fabric to accelerate application programmability, facilitate unconstrained mobility, and maximise compute efficiency” for cloud operations.

Which is something of a cold call, since that's pretty much the mission statement of SDN and NFV.

However, it also draws together two companies which are members of the OpenDaylight Foundation, but which have been relatively quiet about their plans in that platform. Oracle pitched its hat into that ring in June, but at the time said only that its intent was to “enable compatibility with OpenStack Neutron and OpenDaylight SDN to allow customers to deploy applications in highly available, secure and flexible Oracle Solaris virtual machine instances”.

Nuage says the SDN plugin is ready for use now and has been tested against Oracle's platforms.

In addition, other methods of saving have been utilised to drive operational costs down. Amongst the firms questioned, it was found that 67 per cent of bu...
