We recently teamed with Red Hat to present a webinar on building distributed OpenStack Clouds for Telcos and Service Providers. Sanjay Aiyagari, Senior Solutions Architect, Telecommunications & NFV at Red Hat, and Bruce Ericson, Senior Vice President, Global Sales at CPLANE discussed how by combining Red Hat’s cloud orchestration and life cycle management with CPLANE’s multi-site cloud infrastructure orchestration, hyper-distributed clouds can be quickly and easily deployed at the network edge. Placing applications and services (e.g., NFV) enables innovative new customer solutions and reduces network latency for mission or life critical applications.

At the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, CPLANE NETWORKS CTO John Casey and Senior Network Architect Saurabh Mohan gave a great presentation on building globally-distributed OpenStack clouds using our Multi-Site Manager (MSM). Their presentation highlighted how we deliver seamless OpenStack orchestration for a global service provider that is leveraging their network to build edge cloud services, with plans to create hyper-distributed cloud services for NFV.
CPLANE NETWORKS is pleased to announce that it has recently joined the JuJu Charms Store. A solution deployment service offered by Canonical, JuJu lets you model, configure and manage services, then deploy them to all major public and private clouds with only a few commands. Charms are sets of scripts that simplify the deployment and management tasks of specific services. They can be written in any language and are regularly reviewed and updated.
CPLANE has placed two important services in the Charms Store. First is our Neutron API Charm, which provides the interface to our Dynamic Virtual Networks – Data Center (DVNd) controller. The Neutron API Charm provides an easy mechanism to quickly connect OpenStack to DVNd. The second Charm is our Neutron Open vSwitch Agent, which provides communications between our CP-agent on each compute node and DVNd. CP-agent is an intelligent agent that supports autonomous functions, caching, threading, restart/recovery and provides a common north bound API for different services on the remote devices. Southbound, CP-agent communicates with Open vSwitch (OpenFlow, OVSDB), local Operation Systems, and other specialized local Daemons (e.g. Quaggad).
Being part of the JuJu Charms Store demonstrates CPLANE’s continued focus and commitment to automating the orchestration of OpenStack clouds within data centers, across multiple sites, and at the network edge for hyper-distributed clouds.
