RISC Networks and Velostrata Team Up to Deliver End-to-End Cloud Journey Solution

Grazed from RISC Networks and Velostrata

RISC Networks and Velostrata announce joint integration to deliver the best-in-class cloud migration solution. Successful cloud migrations almost always require a collaborative effort. Cloud migration occurs through several different, but crucial, phases, and require an end-to-end solution which leverages the right software and partners from beginning to end.

RISC Networks ITOA Platform is implemented for the first and final phases of the migration process: discovery and migration planning to start, and migration validation after the move. You can't successfully move applications and related databases without gaining a complete picture of how everything is interconnected. The RISC Networks Platform allows you to discover all in-scope devices, automatically create application stacks and quickly see the level of effort (rscore) required to move a stack. Additionally, IT professionals can rationalize their applications, evaluate cost and resource estimates, and create a cloud migration plan within the platform. At this point, users (automatically) convert the Asset Report from the RISC Networks Portal into a Velostrata automation runbook. Through the implementation of the Velostrata runbook, users can automatically migrate their on-premises workloads and applications into the cloud based on the sequence and instance types (among other customer desired variables) defined in their runbook.

Cloudify and Fortinet Deliver NFV Orchestration via New Technical Partnership

Grazed from Cloudify and Fortinet

Cloudify and Fortinet have established a technology partnership to address the challenges of network functions virtualization (NFV) in order to help organizations quickly, effectively and securely provision and deploy new network services across hybrid environments-brownfield and greenfield-at a fraction of the time and risk.

Cloudify makes open source software used by large telecoms, Tier 1 network operators and large enterprises for cloud infrastructure, applications and NFV automation and management. Fortinet's award-winning FortiGate network security platform provides end-to-end security across the entire network.

The NFV reality of decoupling network functions from the underlying hardware on which they run is now here. With NFV, many physical network functions-like load balancers and firewalls-are becoming virtualized network functions (VNFs) that are shipped and delivered via software. Because VNFs are deployed only when needed, NFV can substantially improve network cost efficiency, responsiveness and security.
