Vyatta (News - Alert) is guiding enterprises and service providers to build an enduring software-defined networking (SDN) strategy.
To this end, the company has developed a new Empowering SDN initiative.
Vyatta specializes in providing software-based networking for virtual and cloud environments. The Vyatta Empowering SDN program uses established protocols like OSPF and BGP, to create agile, capacity-on-demand networks for the future.
The company notes that network engineers and architects can leverage Vyatta software-based routers to adopt a consistent routing and security approach to span existing production server farms and emerging, trial SDN-enabled server farms.
Vyatta software-based routers also enable network engineers and architects to build toward -- rather than catch-up to -- the new SDN enabled operating environment.
"Web monsters are certainly at the forefront of software-defined networking, but the majority of Fortune 1000 companies are looking for a strategy that will guide them toward SDN as it matures," said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Vyatta. "With an enterprise-class networking and routing solution, Vyatta delivers a clear-cut strategy that enables enterprises and cloud providers to realize many of the benefits of SDN, today."
Software-defined networking or SDN has become very popular in datacenters as it offers specific and measurable improvements in cost, speed of deployment and the efficiency of operations.
"Empowering SDN is our vision for using Vyatta's stable and proven technology to aid in the transition to a more agile software-defined datacenter," said Dan Tuchler, vice president of marketing for Vyatta. "SDN represents an important opportunity for customers and Vyatta is an important building block that can assist in their SDN strategy."
Vyatta was recently in news when it was named "Virtualization Security" Product of the Year by the editors of SearchServerVirtualization.com and TechTarget Inc.'s Data Center and Virtualization Media Group.
