PLUMgrid Open Networking Suite for OpenStack Achieves Certification With Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8

Certification Enables Red Hat and PLUMgrid Customers to Simplify and Accelerate OpenStack Cloud Deployments

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/31/16 -- PLUMgrid, a leader of secure and scalable SDN and NFV solutions for OpenStack® clouds, announced today that its Open Networking Suite (ONS) 5.0 for OpenStack has achieved certification with Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8. Designed to deliver advanced SDN services that meet the production requirements of OpenStack clouds, ONS 5.0 provides a rich set of features and tools to simplify deployments and increase operational efficiency.

PLUMgrid ONS 5.0 is among the industry's first software-only virtual networking solutions to be certified with Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8. Red Hat's certification requires passing an extensive test suite to ascertain compatibility with OpenStack APIs and other functions implemented in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8.

The certification of PLUMgrid ONS 5.0 on Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8 augments the previous certifications PLUMgrid achieved with Red Hat OpenStack Platform versions 4, 5, 6 and 7. The certification means that Red Hat customers can more confidently run PLUMgrid ONS via an OpenStack Networking (Neutron) plug-in on Red Hat OpenStack Platforms.

PLUMgrid ONS 5.0 recently introduced SDN support for Docker containers, expanded gateway integration with Cisco Nexus 9000, IPv6, PLUMgrid SmartLogs, toolbox wizards and many new enhancements as well as support for OpenStack releases Kilo and Liberty. The PLUMgrid certification with Red Hat enables customers to more rapidly make use of new enhancements in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8 is the latest version of the company's highly scalable platform based on the OpenStack community "Liberty" release. A comprehensive solution that integrates the foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Red Hat's OpenStack technology to form a production-ready cloud platform, the newest version delivers optimized storage and management capabilities through the native inclusion of Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat CloudForms, respectively. Red Hat's core OpenStack offering now natively includes: automated upgrades and updates; infrastructure and workload management; software-defined storage; and a telco-focused preview.

PLUMgrid ONS provides secure cloud infrastructure with Virtual Domains and uses PLUMgrid Life Cycle Manager to streamline installation of ONS on OpenStack distributions. The combined support provides Red Hat and PLUMgrid customers with an enterprise-ready OpenStack cloud solution that enables simpler and faster deployment with multi-tenant security features and high availability. ONS 5.0 can further simplify OpenStack operations with updated drag-and-drop configuration, rich automation, analytics, troubleshooting tools, and breakthrough SDN visualization and monitoring platform, CloudApex.

"OpenStack deployments are rapidly accelerating at enterprises and service providers alike," said Wendy Cartee, vice president of Product Management at PLUMgrid. "End customers and channel partners require certified solutions that seamlessly integrate to confidently roll out and maintain OpenStack clouds. PLUMgrid ONS 5.0 with RHEL OSP 8 certification gives customers and partners the confidence they need and simplifies deployments to enable improved time to service and ROI."

PLUMgrid is part of the Red Hat Connect for Technology Partner Program, which connects business and technical resources to third-party technology companies who are aligning with Red Hat's OpenStack product offerings. Solutions that have achieved Red Hat OpenStack Certification, or which are certified for other products in Red Hat's open hybrid cloud portfolio, are available in the Red Hat Marketplace.

"We are pleased that PLUMgrid's newest release is certified with Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8, enabling our mutual customers greater trust in our certified and supported solutions," said Mike Werner, senior director, Global Technology Ecosystems, Red Hat. "As Red Hat's OpenStack offerings advance, we are happy to work with innovative companies such as PLUMgrid to offer a broad set of complementary solutions to our customers."
