Nokia’s Nuage Networks to power public cloud expansion.
China Mobile Cloud, the subsidiary of the leading mobile telecom provider China Mobile, will leverage the Nuage Networks end-to-end SDN solution for nationwide deployment of its public cloud service.
Nokia’s Nuage Networks Virtualised Cloud Services (VCS) solution will provide advanced network automation across networks and clouds of all sizes — allowing customers to build fully isolated and secure virtual private clouds (VPCs) that connect to other VPCs, the internet and enterprise data centers.
Nokia has worked closely with China Mobile Cloud since 2015 — with both China Mobile Cloud’s public and private cloud services running on Nuage’s SDN solution — continuously developing features and improving system architecture for the growing demand of cloud service.
Nokia’s Nuage Networks VCS can support a massive number of virtual machines (VM) and bare metal services (BM) in the same network with full policy control. The flexible architecture also allows direct connectivity between the end points without going through gateways, which can quickly become bottlenecks in a cloud environment.
By deploying Nokia’s SDN solution, China Mobile Cloud’s customers will have the ability to create highly secure and dynamic virtual networks.
Nokia’s Nuage Networks Virtualised Cloud Services (VCS) solution includes an SDN controller, software switch, SDN gateway, firewall, load balancer and VPN, and will provide:
- Inter-virtual private cloud (VPC) connectivity in different data centers for fault tolerance and to locate applications closer to the end users.
- Data Center Interconnection (DCI) that is fully automated by the Nuage platform
- Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) to secure the critical cloud workloads
- Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS) for non-virtualised workloads and workloads needing access to physical hardware
