Centec Networks and Vello Systems Team at Open Networking Summit to Show Latest OpenFlow-Based Systems and Applications for Data Center, Cloud and Other Network Services

Centec, a leading innovator of IP/Ethernet switching silicon and advanced turnkey system solutions and Vello Systems, a leading provider of open networking software, today announced the companies will exhibit and demonstrate the new Centec V series Open SDN switch with the VellOS software platform for installation at enterprise campuses or the network operations centers of data centers, ISPs and other network providers. These new products are the result of a collaboration that began in 2012 and feature the Centec N-Flow switch architecture and the VellOS complete software stack, including Vello’s GUI-style network policy and control applications, a network operating system with rich APIs and an integrated OpenFlow-based controller. The networking infrastructure industry is embracing the OpenFlow movement to separate the “control plane” from physical network equipment, and incorporate it into fully standards-based application provisioning interfaces that can run on any platform of a customer’s choosing.

Today’s networking systems were designed to solve problems that no longer exist for customers. Large enterprises are consolidating into fewer and more complex data centers in which new server and application models are deployed. Furthermore, these networks are being overwhelmed by the growth of BYOD, which requires networking equipment to be provisioned, administered and managed on a device-by-device basis. Complicating the matter, equipment vendors typically provide proprietary network control mechanisms that make coordinating and provisioning across the network time consuming and costly.

“To date, provisioning network resources to meet new application and computing requirements can take a week or more -- services are more or less beholden to the network architecture,” said Karl May, Chief Executive Officer, Vello Systems. “This is why working with Centec is so important. Together we can turn that paradigm around to create enterprise networking environments featuring predictable service from network, storage, and compute resources on an on demand basis. These benefits are also realized on a much lower cost basis than traditional solutions.”

“Vello Systems is among the most advanced software providers we have seen in leveraging OpenFlow to create high performance ‘open’ enterprise networks,” said James Sun, Chief Executive Officer, Centec Networks. “As a leading innovator of IP/Ethernet switching silicon and system solutions, the integration of OpenFlow is critical to our ongoing success. We are providing a complete OpenFlow switch solution with N-Space Open Software as well as SDK, and now are collaborating with Vello Systems to drive innovation in Software Defined Networking.”

Centec Networks and Vello Systems are showcasing the power of open networking and policy based network automation with the Centec V series Open SDN switch and VelloOS with NX5000 OpenFlow controller in booth 404 at the Open Networking Summit in Santa Clara, California, April 15-17, 2013.

DevOps Summit, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, is co-located with 17th Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
SYS-CON Events announced today that DataClear Inc. will exhibit at the 17th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. The DataClear ‘BlackBox’ is the only solution that moves your PC, browsing and data out of the United States and away from prying (and spying) eyes. Its solution automatically builds you a clean, on-demand, virus free, new virtual cloud based PC outside of the United States, and wipes it clean...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
