CPLANE’s Multi-Site Manager and Canonical’s Ubuntu power PCCW Global’s enhanced clouds

PCCW Global announced today that CPLANE NETWORKS and Canonical are powering PCCW Global’s distributed OpenStack clouds to deliver new and innovative services for NFV and IoT. These new cloud services are designed to enable “self-service” provisioning to accelerate service deployment for PCCW’s customers as well as seamless integration with and easy consumption of existing PCCW Global integrated communications solutions.

PCCW Global is the international operating division of HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications service provider, which is majority-owned by PCCW Limited. Covering more than 3,000 cities and 150 countries, the PCCW Global network supports a portfolio of integrated global communications solutions which include Ethernet, IP, fiber and satellite transmission solutions, international voice and VoIPX services, managed network & security services and our expanding “as-a-service” solutions including OTT video and Unified Communications.

The approach we have taken, working with Canonical and CPLANE NETWORKS, will enable us to deliver a level of performance, scalability and automation that would otherwise be unachievable with traditional service configuration solutions. Bret Rehart, Chief Network and Information Officer of PCCW Global

CPLANE and Canonical have deployed a completely integrated OpenStack cloud solution using a combination of our industry-leading products:

  • Canonical Ubuntu for high-performance compute services
  • Canonical OpenStack for scalability and reliability
  • Canonical JuJu Charms for cloud and NFV service life cycle management
  • CPLANE NETWORKS Multi-Site Manager for secure multi-site cloud orchestration
  • CPLANE NETWORKS Dynamic Virtual Network – Data Center for fully integrated virtual networking and connectivity

The combination of the CPLANE and Canonical solutions enables the rapid deployment of secure cloud services that span multiple highly-distributed locations – an ideal platform for edge services for NFV and IoT.

Using Ubuntu OpenStack, the most widely deployed OpenStack in production clouds today, and CPLANE NETWORKS’ Multi-Site Manager, Canonical and CPLANE NETWORKS are delivering unmatched performance and scalability for a truly global OpenStack cloud. Anand Krishnan, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Cloud, Canonical

As clouds continue to move closer to the mobile edge for NFV and IoT, the need for hyper-distributed cloud orchestration and management will dramatically increase. Contact us to learn how CPLANE and Canonical can deliver agile infrastructure that flexes with you business!
