Alcatel-Lucent Leverages Red Hat for CloudBand NFV

Alcatel-Lucent is using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), as the common platform for its CloudBand Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution.

Specifically, Alcatel-Lucent chose Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform for use in managing CloudBand Nodes, the turn-key, all-in-one compute, storage and network node system that interfaces with the CloudBand Management System, along with any other OpenStack-enabled nodes.

Additionally, Red Hat was selected for its ability to enable faster, open innovation through contribution in new upstream OpenStack projects. This collaboration is a product of Alcatel-Lucent’s successful CloudBand Ecosystem Program and Red Hat’s ISV Partner Program in which Alcatel-Lucent holds Premier status.

The Alcatel-Lucent CloudBand node also leverages the previously announced partnership between Red Hat and Alcatel-Lucent’s software-defined networking (SDN) venture, Nuage Networks, to provide a single automatically deployable stack that includes Nuage SDN, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, virtual storage and management tools.
