PLUMgrid Enters Chinese Market Through NocSys Reseller Agreement

By Rory Lidstone April 11, 2016

PLUMgrid is a provider of secure and scalable SDN and NFV solutions for OpenStack clouds that recently raised the bar for OpenStack networking with the release of the latest version of its Open Networking Suite, ONS 5.0. Now the company is expanding the reach of its solutions via a global reseller agreement with NocSys, a cloud solutions provider that serves enterprises and service providers in China.

Under this newly minted agreement, NocSys will deliver PLUMgrid’s SDN and NFV solutions, expanding the latter’s presence in China, where its distributed data plane powered by IO Visor will be crucial in deploying scalable OpenStack clouds. The two companies will together help customers quickly and efficiently deploy applications and services within the cloud with the highest levels of security, scale, performance, operations monitoring and diagnostics.

"Fueled by a mobile consumer base estimated to reach 700 million this year, China has the world's largest e-commerce market," said PLUMgrid CEO Larry Lang. "The market's size and technology adoption rate make the need to rapidly provision cloud apps and services essential to our joint enterprise and service provider clients. Partnering with NocSys enables us to add new, high-growth customers and gives us a local presence that delivers essential regional and technical expertise as well as services."

Specific PLUMgrid solutions that NocSys will now offer to customers in China include the Open Networking Suite (ONS) for OpenStack, and the CloudApex SDN visualization and monitoring platform. To supplement these solutions, NocSys will offer its expertise and knowledge, systems integration support, and professional services for its clients.

Thanks to government support for open source, the OpenStack ecosystem in China is at the heart of a new generation of innovative businesses in the country that leverage the cloud to bring their products and services to market as quickly as possible. In fact, International Data Corporation (IDC) believes that China’s total public and cloud market size will grow from $2.46 billion in 2014 to $10 billion in 2019 with a compound annual growth rate of more than 26 percent.
