PLUMgrid Shares Virtual Network Infrastructure Design, Security Integration and Performance Benchmarking Results with OpenStack Community at OpenStack Summit Atlanta

OpenStack Summit - PLUMgrid, OpenStack Summit 2014 sponsor and the leader in Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI), is exhibiting and presenting at the OpenStack Summit being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, May 12-16, 2014.

The PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite is a secure virtual networking product for large-scale OpenStack clouds. Built using PLUMgrid Platform and IO Visor™ technology, it provides an easy and simple solution to build cloud infrastructure at scale and offer secure, multi-tenant network services to OpenStack cloud users. Based on a highly automated workflow, the PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite enables applications and users to deploy private Virtual Domains™ in seconds without changing the physical network fabric.

In addition to exhibiting PLUMgrid product offerings in Booth #E11 on May 12-14, PLUMgrid is also presenting:

       

“Easily Build Complex Network Topologies with Virtual Domains, and Security Sneak Peak”

Where: Demo Theater, Expo Hall (Level 1)
When: Wednesday, May 14, 2:00 – 2:15 PM ET
 
Fawad Khaliq, MTS, PLUMgrid, will showcase how the right Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI) removes weeks of manual provisioning, network meltdowns and the need for expensive hardware equipment while providing an always available, secure and easy-to-provision environment for your services and applications.

Pere Monclus, Co-founder and CTO, PLUMgrid, will discuss the changing nature of the network as it transitions to new models more suited to the cloud with SDN, NFV and Virtual Network Infrastructure, and the inter-relationship between networking, security and policy enforcement. The presentation will explore why and how security and policy enforcement should be integrated into the networking design of OpenStack cloud environments.

 

 

PLUMgrid (Booth #E11) and Mellanox (Booth #E20) will also demonstrate the performance benchmarking results from the integration of PLUMgrid IO Visor™ and Mellanox ConnectX®-3 Pro.
