Luxoft Launches NFV Orchestrator SuperCloud

By Michael Guta October 20, 2014

Large enterprise IT customers, multi-services operators, communications and cloud service providers require high availability and scalability of Virtual Network Functions (VNF) in data centers that are hosted by software-defined operators. As individual consumers and organizations continue to migrate to the cloud, immediate accessibility is becoming more important than ever. Luxoft Holding, Inc., a provider of software development services, has announced the launch of SuperCloud, a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) orchestration platform designed to transform traditional network services infrastructure into NFV.

The growth of cloud, mobile and broadband technology requires more intelligent networks to deliver effective customer driven cloud infrastructure based on SDN and NFV to ensure availability and security at all times. The new SuperCloud solution is going to bring improved NVF capabilities to service providers and enterprises with powerful security protocols and better functionality across the board by decreasing the reliance on hardware, while at the same time increasing flexibility, lowering operational costs and accelerating time-to-market for new services.

Traditional IT network infrastructure was designed to serve different network functions from Layer 2 through Layer 7 by running a vendor-specific operating system or embedded software. As broadband, mobile and cloud technology became more widely available, networks had to develop new systems with high availability, flexibility and rapid and flexible deployment to manage the traffic around the world. With network function virtualization (NFV) and Virtual Network Functions (VNF), communication service providers, multi services operators, cloud services providers and large enterprise IT were able to deploy virtualized networks functions.

The Luxoft SuperCloud NFV orchestration platform has been designed to meet the needs of these large organizations with full orchestration and lifecycle management of virtual network functions and virtual network function chains.

It delivers a vendor neutral industry standard architecture with intelligent service placement and automation that is friendly to existing ecosystems, while at the same time providing the needs of the service provider by supporting a service level agreements guarantee.

“We can now offer customers a one-stop-shop by not only providing a top-notch NFV orchestration platform, but also support it with our services surrounding consulting, customization, feature development support, testing, and maintenance for the platform,” said Luxoft’s Vice President for Technology Strategy, Vasiliy Suvorov.

The company announced the development along with its partners Qosmos and Certes Networks at the Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) inaugural Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Solutions Showcase at the SDN and OpenFlow World Congress in Dusseldorf, Germany.
