Vyatta Release 6.3 – Extending Networking in the Cloud
“Every cloud has a silver lining, but it is sometimes difficult to get it to the mint.”
– Don Marquis
For enterprise-focused clouds to truly prosper, they need network virtual machines. With our release 6.3 Vyatta has extended our hard-earned leadership in this exciting arena.
Of all the advancements in version 6.3, the most exciting ones are cloud-related. From a feature perspective, our continued enhancements focus on security and connectivity of cloud architectures. But one of the most unique benefits of Vyatta is that we continue to make it work in practically all cloud environments.
With new support for the Red Hat KVM hypervisor as well as an Amazon AMI image, Vyatta continues to be the only virtualized networking solution that doesn’t dictate what hardware or software you have to use. Do you want to run it on VMWare, Xen or KVM? Or do you, like 60% of all other organizations, have a multi-hypervisor environment? Vyatta gives you the freedom to span those platforms. Do you want to do your POCs or test & dev in Amazon first? With Vyatta, you can.
Vyatta was founded on openness. (A few of you might even know that “Vyatta” is Sanskrit for “open”.) Enabling cloud networking, regardless of the platforms you use, is a perfect example of the benefits of being open.
Be sure to follow the continued press releases of our cloud customers as they talk openly about how Vyatta lets them get their cloud into the prosperity zone 😉
