New Context delivers full OpenStack life cycle management, accelerating initial deployment, streamlining operations and easing migration to future releases. CPLANE NETWORKS' Dynamic Virtual Networks (DVN) is "Built for OpenStackTM" to ensure complete compatibility and deliver unmatched network performance and scalability.

"One of the biggest challenges for our customers is getting over the initial OpenStack installation hurdle," said Daniel Riedel, CEO of New Context. "Combined with CPLANE's powerful software-defined networking solution, OpenStack is becoming the most robust offering available for private and public clouds. New Context's automation suite dramatically streamlines the installation process and reduces the time required to realize the benefits of cloud service orchestration. Those same levels of automation and integration are then applied to the application deployment process. Time-to-market for new services is a critical business driver, and we're focused on reducing the time it takes to deploy those services from days and weeks to just minutes," he said.

"The tremendous momentum of OpenStack clearly demonstrates the desire by enterprises and service providers to leverage the power of cloud computing," said Brandon Williams, CEO of CPLANE NETWORKS. "Until now OpenStack has been hampered by the lack of functionality, performance and scalability of the basic Neutron networking service. We've eliminated that problem with DVN. OpenStack networking is now production-ready."

Riedel said the partnership responds to the growing demands for responsive services amid the pressures of cost containment and skillset shortages that enterprises and cloud service providers are facing. "The industry must move from system configuration to service construction. It's about making IT services easy to consume at a lower cost," said Riedel.

"Systems automation and open source orchestration are dramatically changing the way data centers deliver services. CPLANE NETWORKS and New Context are at the nexus of these two revolutions with radically innovative and transformative technologies," said Williams.
