LineSider Collaborates With EMC to Automate Cloud Computing
LineSider Technologies, a leading provider of cloud automation and orchestration, today announced that it is collaborating with EMC to automate their cloud computing infrastructure. EMC has implemented LineSider's OverDrive to automate the provisioning and deployment of network services in the Atmos cloud computing environment.

LineSider's OverDrive automatically virtualizes network services so the network becomes fluid and responsive in the same way server virtualization transformed the data center. Every application gets the network resources it needs, when needed, without any manual intervention dramatically reducing network operations costs associated with cloud computing.

"Together, LineSider and EMC are demonstrating our commitment to deliver innovative storage solutions that address the growing needs of our customers seeking to leverage cloud infrastructure. We believe there is an opportunity and approach to cloud storage that delivers financial and functional benefits to both our Partners and the Customers they serve," said Mike Feinberg, Senior Vice President of EMC Cloud Infrastructure Group. "By making our cloud infrastructure accessible and allowing easy API integration, we enable our partners to respond to customers' fast-growing demand for cloud-based solutions with greater scalability, elasticity and lower costs. We are pleased to work with LineSider to embrace and deliver these benefits to our joint customers."

"The network is still static," said John Donnelly III, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at LineSider. "Every time an application, computer or storage resource changes in the virtual datacenter, there needs to be some type of manual intervention to provision network services or repair broken security and access models. In fact, one of the biggest challenges facing large virtual computing deployments is the enormous amount of operational time spent on creating and modifying network connectivity and maintaining security to support virtual computing. This is especially true for companies with very fluid computing environments where virtual devices are being added, moved or changed regularly between physical locations or network segments."
