Oracle Virtual Networking now supports OpenStack via the Neutron plug-in. Announcing this at the Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle said that the integration is based on the OpenStack Icehouse release that enables all of Oracle’s software-defined networking (SDN) and network fabric capabilities to be created, provisioned and managed by the OpenStack framework.
According to Oracle, its Oracle SDN now allows OpenStack-based cloud deployments to virtually eliminate VLAN exhaustion and bandwidth bottlenecks experienced with traditional networking, providing extreme scalability and security on the industry’s fastest network fabric.
Oracle Virtual Networking which delivers software-defined fabric for a heterogeneous data center, supporting both SPARC and x86 systems on a single fabric, virtualizes the SAN and LAN infrastructures by defining connectivity in software, giving users the flexibility and agility needed for cloud-enabled Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) deployments.
"As the industry’s fastest data center fabric, Oracle Virtual Networking enables increased performance and agility while virtually eliminating the complexity in traditional data centers. Now with added support for OpenStack, customers can deploy cloud-enabled PaaS and IaaS with enhanced security and scale dynamically to address their business needs.”
