LineSider Enables Service Providers and Enterprises to Offer Automated Tiered Virtual Private Cloud Services

DANVERS, MA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) -  LineSider Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of cloud automation and orchestration software, today announced the latest version of OverDrive Virtual Cloud Orchestration Manager (vCom) that introduced the ability for service providers and IT organizations to offer flexible, tiered virtual private cloud (VPC) infrastructure services to their customers. vCom enables organizations to rapidly build, deploy and manage private cloud infrastructures that can be tailored specifically to the unique needs of individual end users and delivered on-demand with complete automation, security and control using an easy-to-use graphical user interface.

"This vCOM announcement from LineSider is very exciting for the cloud landscape. The ability to automate almost all aspects of infrastructure operation is absolutely necessary to meet many of the cloud's requirements," said Rachel Chalmers, Research Director of Infrastructure Management at The 451 Group. "LineSider's vCom helps service providers, enterprises, and SMBs transition current infrastructure into an agile, cost-effective private cloud improving the data center's agility to provide continued business value."

"Our service provider and enterprise business customers are looking for flexible and cost-effective ways to deploy managed private cloud services," said John Donnelly III, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at LineSider. "We have found that large & small IT organizations are still focused on virtualizing compute resources and have yet to realize how much operational time and cost is spent on creating and modifying network connectivity and security to support these virtual data center environments. The SMB market is very focused on managed private cloud services and this approach has become a very attractive alternative to building solutions in house. We see vCom providing a robust and cost effective platform for all types of IT organizations seeking to deliver cloud services internally across their organizations. We will also be launching, along with some key strategic partners a Cloud-in-a-Box solution later this year that is targeted at the budget and operational needs of small to medium business users that are looking to build clouds more efficiently."

New features in OverDrive vCom include:

  • Ability to define tiered services based on predefined characteristics such as number of addresses, VLANs, and virtual machines.
  • Flexibility to change cloud service tiers or specific attributes of a service tier "on-the-fly."
  • Orchestrated deployment of Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) for increased security.
  • Orchestrated binding of customer virtual private clouds and data centers to MPLS backbone
  • Customer defined private addressing, QoS, and bandwidth characteristics in virtual private clouds and data centers
  • Ability to define and construct 3-tiered fully secure customer processing environment within a virtual private cloud

OverDrive is the industry's first network services virtualization (NSV) platform for both enterprises and cloud service providers that integrates and automates the network services necessary to build and deploy cloud services. The OverDrive NSV platform transitions traditionally static network and computing infrastructures into dynamic, fluid and secure cloud delivery infrastructures that respond automatically to demand driven cloud activities.
