Huawei and Red Hat has announced a new global partnership to enable OpenStack-based cloud deployments. By expanding their relationship, Huawei and Red Hat aim to accelerate collaboration around OpenStack for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) required by Communication Service Providers (CSPs).
Huawei and Red Hat plan to integrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Huawei’s FusionSphere Cloud OS at the management layer to offer a unified open, flexible, and production-ready cloud solution to support telecommunication carriers' NFV evolution. According to the 2014 SDN and NFV Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey, conducted by Infonetics Research, 93 percent of telecommunications operators interviewed plan to deploy NFV as carriers work to modernize the way telecommunications networks are built and operated. “Carriers and telecommunications service providers are under pressure to modernize their network infrastructure to meet demands created by new service offerings and the explosive volume of data crossing the network.
As a result, many are exploring the benefits OpenStack-based clouds can bring to NFV projects," said Tim Yeaton, senior vice president, Infrastructure Business, Red Hat. Huawei and Red Hat will work together to contribute NFV enabling features to the upstream OpenStack community, which are required by CSP cloud deployments, and serve as the foundation of highly scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.
