PLUMgrid Partners With NocSys to Offer OpenStack SDN Solutions in China
PLUMgrid, a leader of secure and scalable SDN and NFV solutions for OpenStack clouds, today entered a global reseller agreement with NocSys, a cloud solutions provider focused on serving enterprises and service providers in China. NocSys will deliver PLUMgrid's SDN and NFV solutions, expanding the company's presence into China's market where its distributed data plane powered by IO Visor is crucial to customers deploying scalable OpenStack clouds. Together, the two firms help customers quickly and efficiently deploy applications and services within the cloud with the highest levels of security, scale, performance, operations monitoring and diagnostics.

Under terms of the contract, NocSys will resell PLUMgrid's full SDN portfolio of solutions including its Open Networking Suite (ONS) for OpenStack, CloudApex SDN visualization and monitoring platform, training and professional services. In addition to its vast experience in one of the biggest technology markets in the world, NocSys offers expertise and knowledge, systems integration, and professional services for its clients.

"We chose PLUMgrid for its production-ready, best-in-class SDN solutions because our clients require the utmost reliability," said President and Chairman of NocSys, Rebecca Lin. "With this partnership, we deliver its comprehensive, secure and scalable SDN portfolio to our joint customers ensuring multi-point recovery, elastic scalability, rapid deployment and the ability to dynamically perform upgrades across OpenStack environments."

With government support for Open Source, the OpenStack ecosystem in China is driving a new generation of innovative businesses that are using the cloud to bring their products and services to market at a rapid pace. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), China's total public and private cloud market size was US$ 2.46 billion in 2014, maintaining a high compound annual growth rate over five years of more than 26 percent to reach US$10 billion in 2019.

"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." 

NocSys' local expertise, combined with the comprehensive PLUMgrid SDN portfolio, gives customers access to a powerful cloud solution that enables reduced Capex and Opex while improving deployment flexibility and agility. PLUMgrid and NocSys work together to address today's primary requirements for successful OpenStack deployments through:

  • Security: PLUMgrid secures OpenStack clouds by enabling Virtual

Domains, a unique approach that provides micro-segmentation and firewall service insertion technology.

  • Scale and Performance: PLUMgrid offers distributed and programmable data planes powered by IO Visor software for in-kernel forwarding and IO services.

  • Operations, Monitoring and Diagnostics: Critical for "operationalizing" OpenStack clouds, PLUMgrid and NocSys offer a broad portfolio of tools and exceptional customer support. PLUMgrid recently announced CloudApex, a real-time SDN visualization and monitoring platform to ease management.
