Brocade has announced that it is now a certified Mirantis Technology Partner. This partnership will provide cloud service providers with a new turnkey, OpenStack-based, on-demand data center solution.
As a result, Mirantis and Brocade customers can now install and scale cloud service provider networks with OpenStack in days rather than months.
This partnership, and the resulting validated solution, offers enterprises and cloud service providers a new level of flexibility to deploy software-driven, automated, and scalable networks -- all features that will prepare service providers for the New IP.
Brocade also announced that the company's OpenStack plugin for Brocade VDX Switches is now certified for Mirantis OpenStack.
Brocade builds on the proven Mirantis OpenStack platform and Fuel, an open source deployment automation tool for OpenStack, to enable 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.
Both of these offerings will be certified with Mirantis OpenStack 5.x in the near future, the company said.
