Vyatta Selected to Virtualize Networking for Cloud Provider’s Datacenter

Vyatta Network OS provides software based, full-featured, redundant networking & security for NS Solutions absonne cloud service

Vyatta on Monday announced its enterprise-class virtual networking and security solution is providing the software for NS Solutions Corporation's newest cloud computing service, Advanced Business Space on Network (absonne) datacenter.

Sheen Khoury, Senior VP of Sales and Field Operations, noted that "With compute and storage virtualization at their respective tipping points, cloud providers, such as NS Solutions, are now focusing on virtualizing the network to further reduce costs and increase flexibility."

NS Solutions is an IT solution provider in Japan operating a utility computing service called absonne. NS Solutions provides integrated solutions, which address customer needs for both business applications and systems platforms, offering end-to-end solutions including system consulting, planning, design, development, operation and maintenance, as well as total end-to-end outsourcing services. NS Solutions is adept at providing multi-vendor and mission-critical systems solutions as well as incorporating best-of-breed products and technologies to address customer needs.

For the absonne datacenter, which entered production in July 2012, NS Solutions deployed Vyatta Network OS for full-featured, redundant network and security infrastructure on a per-customer basis, ensuring uninterrupted service.

Vyatta runs as a virtual machine on the VMware ESX 5 hypervisor and its primary role is to provide network edge routing and security services for NS Solutions' customers. Within the datacenter, Vyatta runs VRRP and NAT and stateful firewall for redundancy in the event of a hardware failure. Should service be disrupted, Vyatta's HA functionality will route traffic to another Vyatta instance with no interruption to the customer's service.

Originally architected and tested with Vyatta Network OS Core, the need for the assurances that come with enterprise-tested and supported software became apparent for the NS Solutions team.

In addition to adapting to fluctuating business and customer demands, Vyatta empowers NS Solutions to take advantage of future technologies, such as software-defined networking (SDN).
