Anuta Releases New SDN Software Release

By Paula Bernier March 24, 2014

Anuta Networks has released version 3.0 of its software-defined networking platform and announced that Norwegian data center services outfit Fjord IT as a customer.

Technology Platform 3.0 is the core of Anuta Networks’s NCX software for data centers, LAN, WAN environments. With this release of the Anuta Networks software delivers global VDC spanning multiple data center PODs, and LAN, WAN use cases; support for DCI based on MPLS L2VPN and L3VPN; support for Cisco ASR 9K, metro Ethernet switches, and Juniper SRX and vGW, Fortinet Fortigate FW and Radware LB gear; and support for the Cisco IWAN technologies PFR, PBR, AVC, and DMVPN. Anuta Networks showed off these new capabilities last week at Cisco Live Australia.

Brandon Mangold, an enterprise network architect at United Airlines, explains that this news is important because network architects and operations team are commonly challenged with designing and deploying new capabilities for remote site LANs, WANs and data centers, and keeping the management and provisioning consistent among these new and existing sites.

“I am pleased to see that Anuta Networks is enabling its technology platform to help solve these challenges using its Orchestration Solution for massive scale enterprises,” he says.

Orchestration will be among the topics discussed and analyzed at at Software Telco Congress – The NFV Event from Aug. 11-14 at The Rio – Las Vegas.

“More and more enterprise customers are reducing significant operational complexity, and realizing the promise of SDN in their existing networks, by leveraging the intelligent power of Anuta Networks’ single network services orchestration solution,” said Srini Beereddy, CTO of Anuta Networks.

Anuta is attempting to virtualize Layer 4-7 services, such as QoS, WAN acceleration, firewall security, load balancing, and monitoring, so that they can be more easily applied to applications that require these services. The challenge, up to now, has been that there are separate physical appliances for provisioning these services to applications, a task made more challenging by application workloads running as virtual machines or that are increasingly mobile.
