Alcatel-Lucent's Nuage Networks venture has enhanced its Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) with a high performance gateway called the 7850 Virtualized Services Gateway (VSG) that provides an alternative for companies with a significant investment in non-virtualized assets who want to leverage automation and control across their virtualized and non-virtualized infrastructures.
Nuage said its 7850 VSG allows CIOs to establish policies to be instantiated and enforced across all of the company’s assets, within and across private and shared data center facilities, regardless of whether the servers or appliances are virtualized.
The 7850 VSG delivers a terabit of capacity in a single rack unit with full switching and routing capabilities. It provides a high-performance gateway for large multi-tenanted datacenter environments and colocation sites.
The unit is currently in trials and is expected to be commercially available later this year (Q4 2013).
"We are committed to removing the constraints that keep networks from being as dynamic, responsive and instantaneous as cloud applications need them to be. By offering the full range of options for seamlessly integrating bare metal appliances, we allow our customers to reap the benefits of automated and template-driven deployment of applications under a common policy driven framework across all their workloads. We are excited to have removed yet another key barrier," stated Sunil Khandekar, CEO of Nuage Networks.
