IP Infusion Launches VirNOS™ Virtual Network Platform Based on Network Functions Virtualization

IP Infusion, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced Ethernet and IP services, today announced the availability of VirNOS™, a virtual network platform based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to help network operators to reduce their CapEx and OpEx costs, accelerate time-to-market for new services, increase agility, and deploy new network services faster.

Network operators face the challenge of integrating and maintaining a variety of proprietary hardware, while coping with increased energy costs, growing capital investment and space requirements. Many core networking services, including switching, routing, load balancing and VPN, can now be performed by software either running directly on x86-64 servers or running as virtual machines, instead of requiring expensive networking equipment. Therefore IT organizations are migrating networking functions to standard, high-volume server environments and replacing dedicated network hardware with virtualization software that run on commodity servers.

IP Infusion’s VirNOS NFV-based software platform virtualizes network functions to give network operators a cost-effective approach to deploy and manage their networking services. With VirNOS, network service development can benefit from:

  • Supports flow switching via OpenFlow for easy deployment of innovative routing and switching protocols
  • Ideal for virtual machines, high-security networks and next generation IP-based mobile networks
  • Uses Intel DPDK to provide programming framework that scales and enables faster development of high speed data packet networking applications
  • Supports IPv4 and IPv6 dynamic routing protocols (BGP, OSPF, ISIS, Unicast)
  • Leverages mature code base of ZebOS-XP® -- IP Infusion’s industry proven platform

“With the NFV capabilities of IP Infusion’s new VirNOS platform, network operators can offer new network services more readily, and scale services up and down to support their changing business requirements,” said Kiyo Oishi, CEO and president of IP Infusion. “We are partnering with several network equipment manufacturers to package our NFV technology into their software offerings which will generate more innovative network services and help their customers to offer new revenue models and growth opportunities.”

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
The financial services market is one of the most data-driven industries in the world, yet it’s bogged down by legacy CPU technologies that simply can’t keep up with the task of querying and visualizing billions of records. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Karthik Lalithraj, a Principal Solutions Architect at Kinetica, discussed how the advent of advanced in-database analytics on the GPU makes it possible to run sophisticated data science workloads on the same database that is housing the rich...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
