PLUMgrid to Showcase Secure Micro-segmentation for Docker Clouds at DockerCon 2016

Company to Demonstrate SDN Solutions Enabling Rapid Multi-Tenant Topologies That Are Secure, Policy-Driven and Fully Automated

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2016) - PLUMgrid, a leader of secure and scalable SDN and NFV solutions for public and private clouds, will exhibit at the upcoming DockerCon 2016 in Seattle, June 19-21 at booth S39. PLUMgrid will showcase products and technologies that enable key use cases for businesses to build secure and scalable SDN infrastructure for Docker container clouds.

Earlier this year, PLUMgrid became a member of the Docker Partner Program and recently announced the latest version of its Open Networking Suite (ONS) 5.0 delivers SDN services for Docker clouds in addition to supporting Docker networking for OpenStack clouds through Project Kuryr. By providing a networking plugin with SDN support, PLUMgrid enables seamless connectivity for Docker containers with services including multi-host networking, security, DNS, tunneling and high availability.

During the conference PLUMgrid will demonstrate the capabilities of Open Networking Suite 5.0 and its breakthrough SDN visualization and monitoring platform, CloudApex™, and offer free consulting engineering sessions. PLUMgrid will cover production deployments, micro-segmentation, Docker container networking, group-based policy for microservices and SDN monitoring.

Specifically, PLUMgrid will demo its container-based micro-segmentation approach with an automated installation of PLUMgrid and Docker Swarm clusters under Linux that enables users to rapidly deploy multi-tenant topologies and launch Docker containers. The self-install demo is packaged for quick and easy download with full automation workflow. Developers will be available to demo and walk through the automation workflow and discuss how micro-segmentation can be used with container orchestration frameworks to enable a common network platform.

Visitors will learn how businesses are deploying PLUMgrid Open Networking Suite for Docker networking and enable development of microservices to gain competitive advantages with faster time to market.

What:
PLUMgrid will demonstrate the ease of deploying highly secure SDNs leveraging the company's Virtual Domains, an innovative and secure approach to micro-segmentation.

When:
Sunday, June 19, to Tuesday, June 21, 2016.

Where:
PLUMgrid will showcase its virtual networking demos at DockerCon booth, S39.

SDN for Containers
As container deployments rise, users are seeking advanced virtual networking services that are beyond connectivity. PLUMgrid now offers a SDN plugin for Docker containers at https://github.com/plumgrid/libnetwork-plugin to enable rich networking functions, secure multi-tenancy, multi-host networking, high availability, and distributed scale-out performance for Docker clouds. Furthermore, PLUMgrid ONS has added support for Project Kuryr, an OpenStack initiative that provides container network abstraction for Neutron API. For companies building public or private clouds using Docker containers and/or OpenStack, PLUMgrid ONS enables cloud builders to deploy containers, virtual machines, and bare metal architectures in virtual domains.
