NESIC to offer innovative PLUMgrid Platform to cloud service providers and large enterprises across Japan

PLUMgrid, the leader in Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI), today announced that the PLUMgrid Platform will now be available in Japan, a key market for network virtualization, through a partnership with leading ICT system integrator NEC Networks and System Integration Corporation (NESIC).

NESIC will deliver PLUMgrid's software-only VNI solution to cloud service providers and large enterprises building OpenStack and VMware-based clouds, meeting their need for automating the delivery of applications with the addition of self-service and on-demand virtual networks.

"Japan is seeing rapid growth in cloud computing, yet cloud service providers and enterprise cloud administrators are increasingly challenged by manual configuration and management of physical network infrastructures," said Takayuki Nakagawa, General Manager, NESIC. "PLUMgrid provides a virtual network infrastructure that really meets the needs and requirements of our customers. It greatly reduces operation load and overall costs, and enhances service to the end-user. In addition, with PLUMgrid's hardware-agnostic solution and open architecture, NESIC can leverage our know-how in building networks from multiple vendors."

Launched in June 2013, the PLUMgrid Platform is based on PLUMgrid's unique IO Visor technology, a virtualized IO that enables the creation of secure, on-demand programmable and multi-tenant networks, called Virtual Domains. This new and unique capability allows businesses to completely replicate the physical network infrastructure in a virtual environment, and provision networks in minutes -- without requiring investment in new hardware or changes to existing hardware infrastructure. Other PLUMgrid Platform benefits include advanced visibility and analytics, and integration with OpenStack.

"NESIC has a strong background in networking technologies and is proactively bringing solutions to cloud builders in the region," said Kash Iftikhar, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, PLUMgrid. "Together with NESIC, PLUMgrid looks forward to fulfilling the growing demand for network automation, which can only be fully met by an open and programmable virtual network infrastructure like PLUMgrid."
