Vyatta and Cloud.com Partner to Deliver Advanced Networking in the Cloud

Joint Solution Provides Automation of Granular Security Policies for Private and Public Clouds

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Vyatta, the leader in software-based networking for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, and Cloud.com, a leader in open source cloud computing software, today announced a joint solution for advanced connectivity and security for cloud infrastructures.

The emerging requirement for complete migration of security and compliance of physical networks to cloud environments is driving demand for the ability to deliver complex network infrastructures within a hypervisor. The combination of Cloud.com's expertise in building large-scale cloud infrastructure with Vyatta's market-leading Network OS enables service providers and enterprises to automate and manage the building of complex multi-tier and multi-site secure networks in the cloud.

"The combination of CloudStack and Vyatta provides an ideal solution to address the security needs of our customers," said Mike Chase, CTO at dinCloud, a cloud services provider. "Securing our customers' desktop, storage, and server data in our cloud in an automated fashion is a key component of our strategy. This partnership will help accelerate our ability to get to market more quickly with a commercial, customer-ready solution that addresses the security and networking requirements of our enterprise customers."

With Vyatta's cloud-ready network operating system and the Cloud.com CloudStack cloud infrastructure software, enterprises and cloud providers can quickly set up cloud instances and configure complex network security policies to isolate customers and applications. The combined solution enables unique infrastructure build-out in the cloud by including Layer 2 cloud bridging, Intrusion Prevention, and N-tier network management in addition to stateful firewalling, IPSec and SSL-based VPN and secure web filtering.

"The acceleration in adoption of cloud technologies by the enterprise is placing an increased demand around advanced networking capabilities that match what organizations have come to expect within their own physical data center environments," said Peder Ulander, CMO, Cloud.com. "We recognized the need for multiple network models early in our enterprise engagements. Integrating the rich and powerful capabilities of Vyatta's Network OS within CloudStack will provide enterprises and service providers with the advanced networking functionality required for enterprise applications and accelerate their ability to roll out cloud computing initiatives within the enterprise."

"Enterprise applications and data are protected by complex network infrastructures that must be replicated in the cloud while still maintaining the elasticity, automation and flexible business logic that the cloud promises," said Tom McCafferty, vice president of marketing, Vyatta. "Combining Cloud.com's industry-leading cloud infrastructure software and Vyatta's Network OS enables businesses to benefit from advanced network security in the cloud by delivering network infrastructure as cloud-ready application."

Vyatta will be demonstrating the multiple applications of its Vyatta Network OS software routing and security solutions at the Interop Expo from May 10-12 in booth #815 in the Cloud and Virtualization Zone. Demonstrations include building, deploying, managing and securing public multi-tenant and private n-tier cloud architectures on-demand with Cloud.com.
