Akanda Releases Astara Liberty Orchestration Code

Akanda, a start-up offering an NFV orchestration platform, announced its Astara's Liberty release for Layer 3-7 networking services.


The new version, which is now available to OpenStack operators, is the open source network orchestration platform's most substantial since its initial launch, and is Astara's first since becoming an official OpenStack project.

Some highlights of Astara's Liberty release:

  • More configurability: A new load balancer driver allows OpenStack operators to configure the platform to load and manage only the resources they choose. Current implementations include NGINX and NGINX Plus.
  • Quicker provisioning: Neutron resources are now much more quickly provisioned onto appliance VMs via a new service that manages pools of hot-standby appliance VMs.
  • Cumulus Networks integration: Tight integration and support for Dynamic Lightweight Network Virtualization gives OpenStack operators a complete, OpenStack-ready stack.
  • Higher availability: Active-active high availability and scaling improvements.


"Astara's first release as an official OpenStack project is an exciting one for OpenStack operators," said Henrik Rosendahl, CEO, Akanda. "The goal of Astara is to make Networking and DevOps' lives easier. With tremendous community support and momentum for the platform throughout its first year, Astara is the answer for massively simplified OpenStack networking stack that can replace traditional -- and expensive -- single vendor lock-in."
