Nuage Networks is to deploy its virtualised service platform (VSP) across internet hosting company’s OVH’s data centres in Europe and Canada. 

The Alcatel-Lucent-owned SDN company said it will deliver its VSP alongside OpenStack in its cloud to create an “OpenStack as a Service” offering that provides dedicated cloud infrastructure to OVH customers. 

OVH claims to be the world’s number three internet hosting company with over 700,000 customers. 

It said using Nuage Networks’ SDN solution would enable its data centres to more effectively adapt to new network configurations and create a better performing, more programmable, and operationally efficient infrastructure-as-a-service(IaaS) environment. 

Further, OVH claimed service provisioning through SDN would provide its customers with a more fluid network experience thanks to pre-defined user policies, and would also provide customers with “full control and visibility” of its infrastructure to ensure guidelines are met.

Octave Klaba, CEO and founder of OVH, said: “The Nuage Networks SDN technology allows us to offer our customers cloud services in a more dynamic way, giving them the capability to reduce their time-to-market with a programmable and automated networking environment.” 

According to OVH, Nuage Networks’ solution also reduces costs by eliminating the restrictions of traditional data centres, such as dependency on proprietary hardware. 

Sunil Khandekar, CEO Nuage Networks, commented: “We are excited to work with OVH in support of their dedicated cloud initiative, which will allow them to deliver attractive and innovative cloud services to their European and international customers, while making their infrastructure more agile, responsive, and cost effective.”
