Key New Features of Anuta nCloudX: 
  • VMware vCloud Director Integration

The VMware vCloud Director (vCD) networking model delivers multi-tenancy through virtual networks dedicated for a tenant, in the compute layer. The Anuta Networks nCloudX Connector for VMware is designed to bring the nCloudX capability to VMware customers seeking to manage both virtual and physical networking resources directly within the vCloud Director. The Anuta nCloudX Connector for VMware automates the creation and management of multi-vendor network resources required by vCloud and eliminates manual configuration steps and handoffs between the server administrators and the network administrators. Bridging this gap creates cloud automation across the infrastructure stack for heterogeneous multi-vendor networks.

  • Support for Virtual Appliances from Multiple Vendors

The industry is transitioning to deploying L2-L7 services in a virtual appliance form-factor (e.g. virtual routers, virtual switches, virtual firewalls and virtual load-balancers). With the latest release, Anuta nCloudX offers support for leading L2-L7 virtual service appliance offerings from multiple vendors and also offers out-of the box support for features such as virtual appliance life cycle management including image management, service definitions, commissioning, repurposing, and decommissioning. Anuta nCloudX offers the industry's first on-demand network service orchestration for Cisco VSG, Cisco ASA 1000V, Cisco CSR1000V, Cisco Nexus 1000V, VMware DVS, Citrix NetScaler VPX, F5 BIG-IP and Riverbed Stingray ADC.

  • OpenStack Integration:
Anuta Networks has developed a Quantum plug-in for the nCloudX platform, enabling OpenStack customers to request network services through nCloudX. Anuta nCloudX will deliver those network services using both physical and virtual networks and new generation SDN technologies from multiple vendors.
