Nuage Builds an OpenStack Ecosystem

Alcatel-Lucent's Nuage Networks announced important additions to its ecosystem around OpenStack.

Nuage said its ecosystem unifies and leverages best-of-breed components, overlaying virtualized and bare metal resources without imposing hardware swap outs. It enables unified network controls and management of multiple standalone DevOps clouds.

The company has added support for Linux Containers and Docker alongside with existing and operational support for OpenStack, KVM, and Xen virtualization hypervisors.

The partner technologies supporting the ecosystem include F5 Big IP Local Traffic Manager for application delivery, Infoblox DDI for DNS, DHCP and IP address management, Palo Alto Networks VM-Series for next-generation firewall protection, and Red Hat OSP 6 as the OpenStack distribution.
