LineSider and newScale Partner for On-Demand Provisioning and Automation of Cloud Network Services

DANVERS, MA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  LineSider Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of cloud automation and orchestration software for network services, today announced a partnership with newScale, Inc., pioneers of the self-service IT storefront for the enterprise. The combined solution will enable self-service provisioning and lifecycle management for network services in cloud computing environments, extending the power and dynamic capabilities of the virtualized datacenter to network infrastructure.

With newScale software, enterprises and service providers can publish their "menu" of standardized IT services in an easy-to-use portal for on-demand provisioning of compute, storage, and network resources. LineSider OverDrive automates the initiation, deployment, control, and management of network services using business-level policies, enabling the network to become as fluid as the virtual computing environment in a fully dynamic cloud. 

The combined solution enables end-users to request services from the newScale portal, governed by policy-based controls, approvals, and pre-defined workflows. LineSider OverDrive automatically provisions and deploys the requested network infrastructure on the underlying technology architecture within seconds. newScale then tracks and manages the end-to-end lifecycle of the application environment, and LineSider eliminates the need for manual intervention when a change to the network infrastructure is required.

"The traditional approach for deploying network services relies on static scripts and templates, resulting in unstable and inflexible environments. LineSider automates the provisioning and deployment of those network infrastructure services, so that every application gets the network resources it needs on-demand," said Scott Hammond, President and CEO of newScale. "By working with LineSider, newScale is extending our partner ecosystem for enabling cloud-based compute, storage, and network services. Our combined solutions will help ensure flexible, scalable, and cost-effective operations for both IT organizations and service providers investing in cloud computing."

newScale provides an enterprise-class suite of software solutions for managing IT as a service -- across virtual, cloud and physical environments. With newScale, enterprises and service providers can define standardized IT offerings, enable self-service ordering, coordinate the end-to-end service request workflow, manage the lifecycle of the service, and track consumption. End-users have easy, on-demand access to the IT resources they need, with approvals and policy-based controls for enterprise-class governance.

LineSider's OverDrive is the industry's first network automation and orchestration solution that enables enterprises and service providers to dramatically reduce network operations costs associated with virtualization and cloud computing. OverDrive works without scripts or templates to automate and virtualize network infrastructure so the network becomes fluid and responsive to changes in today's computing environments. This helps to dramatically reduce operations costs and provides the flexibility, agility and scalability required to support cloud computing.

"This is a powerful combination of innovative technologies for both enterprise IT organizations and service providers," said John Donnelly III, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at LineSider. "newScale provides the market-leading software for self-service provisioning and delivering IT as a service, and we are pleased to partner with them to provide these benefits to our joint customers."
