Brocade and Mirantis have entered into a strategic partnership on data center network automation and availability. Brocade builds on Mirantis OpenStack platform and the Fuel open source deployment tool to improve service provider networks. This partnership will provide cloud service providers with a new turnkey service, OpenStack-based, on-demand data center solution.

Brocade also announced that the company's OpenStack plugin for Brocade® VDX® Switche is now certified for Mirantis OpenStack. The solution enables multitenant network orchestration across the data center. Brocade also provides additional network services to OpenStack environments with the Brocade Virtual ADX® and Brocade Vyatta® vRouter offerings. 

The partnership will see both companies delivering a private cloud solution that is automated, efficient, and elastic -- all of which allows cloud service providers to deploy a dense, robust, and cost-effective OpenStack cloud. 

Adrian Ionel, CEO, Mirantis
There is tremendous demand from OpenStack users for advanced networking, particularly scalable software-driven technology. By becoming a Mirantis Technology Partner, Brocade enriches the OpenStack ecosystem with robust cloud networking for service providers and enterprises building private clouds.

Jason Nolet, Vice President Data Center and Enterprise Networking, Brocade
Cloud service providers face a number of challenges in hosting modern data centers that hinder innovation, including the lack of automation, limited resources, and high costs. To address this, Brocade and Mirantis have partnered to provide a best-in-class solution for cloud service providers based on Mirantis OpenStack distribution and Brocade networking technology -- all designed to support the ever-increasing demands of cloud environments.
