PLUMgrid, the leader in Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI), today announced its partnership with Macnica Networks, Japan’s leading value-added distributor of network appliances, and IT software and hardware solutions. The distribution agreement widens the reach of the PLUMgrid Platform in this key network virtualization market.

“We are excited to offer our customers PLUMgrid’s innovative virtual network infrastructure solution,” said Masahiro Miyabukuro, President, Macnica Networks Corp. “Macnica Networks has strong expertise in delivering virtualization technology solutions to customers. Our combined capabilities will advance network virtualization in Japan, especially for data centers and cloud service providers. We are confident that with the PLUMgrid Platform we can help customers improve productivity and increase business efficiency.”

The PLUMgrid Platform is a unique Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI) solution that allows businesses to design and create logical network topologies called Virtual Domains in virtual environments, providing the same functionality as physical network infrastructure (PNI) but with the operational properties of a virtual machine. Based on PLUMgrid’s IO Visor technology, these Virtual Domains act as an application container that manages network resources to ensure connectivity and security for cloud applications as they are created, copied and migrated on-demand. Designed for enterprises and service providers building private and public cloud data centers, the PLUMgrid Platform simplifies isolation and partitioning of resources with a complete set of fully distributed network functions.

"As a leading IT value-added distributor, Macnica Networks offers the channel community a range of the best products from their portfolio of partners," said Kash Iftikhar, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, PLUMgrid. "This partnership will provide companies building cloud automation into data centers the opportunity to improve their IT services and increase efficiency by automating network creation with Virtual Network Infrastructure solutions from PLUMgrid."
