Anuta Networks, the industry’s first provider of network services virtualization solutions, today announced significant enhancements to its NCX, an industry-first software solution designed to deliver agile and secure SDN benefits for large enterprises and service provider networks, and also designed to work with the security platform of Anuta’s technology ecosystem alliance partner Fortinet, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTNT). These latest enhancements enable service providers to introduce self-service and network automation to their customers and reduce overall service delivery time.
Anuta Networks’ NCX solution is breaking the industry barrier to on-board new customers without significant delay and costly expenses by automating the service delivery for MPLS tunnel-based, service provider backbone network. Traditionally, on-boarding new VPN customers required multiple weeks to plan, design and implement. With the help of NCX, on-boarding new VPN customers can be completed in a few minutes. Additionally, NCX automates the provision and de-provision of new CEs for existing customers.
“Service providers and large enterprises face a key challenge of service orchestration for their multi-vendor networks. In order to solve this, the industry has to come together and created platforms and open frameworks that can address these problems with the right solutions. In my 15+ years of experience in the industry, we are now moving from silo architectures into open and flexible platforms and architectures. I am very pleased to see that Fortinet and Anuta Networks have collaborated to provide such a platform for KPN to evaluate. We look forward to similar collaborative activities with vendors in the future,” said Clements Radenborg, program manager for same day delivery at KPN Networks.
“We’re very excited to empower service providers with a comprehensive SDN solution that delivers self-served network services for MPLS backbone networks,” said Chandu Guntakala, founder, president and CEO of Anuta Networks. “Many leading service providers around the world are selecting the proven Anuta NCX solution to introduce network services on-demand at low cost and high assurance.”
“Anuta Networks and FjordIT are bringing innovative Network Services offerings to the Nordic Markets. At Fujitsu Norway, our key focus in bringing new technologies that can help customers achieve more efficiency and reliability in managing their networks. We are looking forward to our collaborative approach and partnership in bringing this key technology to our enterprise customers,” said Tor Arne Rømma, Sr. Network Architect at Fujitsu Norway.
The new NCX enhancements include:
- Multi-vendor end-to-end Ethernet, MPLS L3VPN and L2VPN services including E-Line & E-LAN (VPLS)
- Orchestrate PE-CE connections with different IGP protocols such as RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, ISIS and BGP
- Orchestrate virtual appliances such as vPE and vCE
- Support for Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The NCX solution introduces flexibility by constructing L4-L7 service chaining on-demand using virtual appliances from industry leading vendors. Anuta NCX offers the industry’s first on-demand network service orchestration for Cisco CSR1000V, Cisco Nexus 1000V, VMware DVS, Citrix NetScaler VPX, F5 BIG-IP, Juniper vSRX, Juniper Firefly and Riverbed Steelhead WAN Optimization
Additionally, to further empower service providers around the world, Anuta Networks is announcing today a Technology Alliance Partner agreement with Fortinet.
"For over a decade, Fortinet has empowered global enterprise customers to embrace new technologies and business opportunities securely. SDN, NFV, and other developing orchestration technologies are key enabling technologies for leveraging the cloud while protecting mission critical network systems," said Ryan Potter, director of strategic alliances at Fortinet. "Fortinet is excited by the opportunities ahead with Anuta Networks to help worldwide enterprises create highly-secure next-generation network services that can transform their businesses in the cloud and maximize their competitive advantages."
Anuta NCX is generally available now and licensed based on per VM or per device depending on deployment model. For more information, visit [www.anutanetworks.com/NCX]
Anuta Networks will showcase its new enhancements to the NCX solution at Cisco Live US, San Francisco, May 19-22, at Booth # 2662.

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
