Lumina Networks、SDN市場に参入

~ベンダー・ロックインを排除するオープンなソフトウェア・ネットワークを促進することを目的に創 設されたLumina Networks~ 【東京、2017年8月8日発表】 Lumina Networks, Inc.(本社:米国カリフォルニア州サンノゼ 、CEO:Andrew Coward)は、Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.よりSDNコントローラ 製品ファミリに関連する資産を取得して、SDN(Software-Defined Networking)市場に進出した ことを本日発表しました。Luminaは、OpenDaylight™によって強化された先進的なSDNコントロー ラ・ソリューションと共に、才能のあるネットワーク・ソフトウェア・エンジニア・チームを擁し、すでに 世界最大のサービスプロバイダの何社かを含む顧客と取引しています。Lumina SDNコントロー ラ、アプリケーション、およびネットワーク開発(NetDev)サービスを提供するLuminaは、オープン なソフトウェア・ネットワークの開発段階から本番環境での稼働への速やかな移行を支援します。 ソフトウェアベースのネットワークに移行することで、ネットワークの機能と顧客体験を変化させな がら、資本コストおよび運用コストを大幅に削減できます。しかし、ハードウェアからソフトウェアへ の移行が複雑であると共に、特定ベンダーに依存しないことが強く求められていることで、ネットワ ーク・プロバイダにとって開発テスト環境から本番環境への移行が困難になっていました。これは 、オープンソース・ベースのネットワーキング技術がまさに役立つところです。 LuminaはOpenDaylight™を推奨オープンソース・コントローラとして使用しているため、ネットワー ク・プロバイダはSDNの実装を直接制御でき、ベンダーを選んで独自のソリューションを開発でき ることでベンダー・ロックインを排除できます。Luminaは、OpenDaylightとコードベースでの完全 互換性を保証するために、SDNコントローラの拡張機能をオープンソース・コミュニティーにフィー ドバックしています。 また、LuminaはNetDevサービスも提供しており、企業によるネットワーク・エンジニアリングと運 用チームの変革を支援します。LuminaのNetDevサービスチームは、プロトタイピングと概念実証 からパイロット段階までの期間を迅速化するアジャイル手法を使用して、顧客と協力して稼働シス テムを共同開発します。Lumina NetDevサービスは、Lumina製品、オープンソース・プロジェクト 製品、あるいは競合製品を使用してソリューションを構築します。Luminaの手法により、顧客のチ ームは新しいオープンソース・プラットフォームの開発と管理を自ら行うことができます。 Lumina Networksの最高経営責任者(CEO)であるアンドリュー・カワード(Andrew Coward)は、 次のように述べています。 「私たちの仕事は、ネットワーク・プロバイダがオープン・ソフトウェア・ネットワークを開発段階から 本番稼働への移行を促進することです。私たちは、プロバイダが重要なユースケースにオープン ソースを使用できるよう支援するためにLumina Networksを立ち上げました。しかし、ただ技術を 提供するだけでは不十分です。当社の顧客は、私たちと一緒に実装を行っているため、両者が共 同で導入するプラットフォームの開発と管理に必要な技術、プラクティス、およびツールを学習し、 取得しています」 Luminaの製品ポートフォリオは、以下の通りです。  Lumina SDN Controller:完全にテスト、文書化、品質保証されたOpenDaylight版の Lumina SDN […]

The Robot Uprising – A Tale of Automated Testing

Ah testing, it’s one of those love/hate relationship type things. I see writing tests like brushing your teeth, it’s just something you need to do because if you don’t, you’ll regret it in the long term when everything goes wrong and it’s going to cost you big time to fix!
