Open Compute Project (OCP) accepts a model of network sustainability offered by DriveNets, enabled by cloud architecture
– During the OCP Global Summit 2021, DriveNets will demonstrate the Network Cloud 350Tb / s Distributed Disaggregate chassis (DDC) router, in cooperation with Credo and UfiSpace –
RA’ANANA, Israel, November 9, 2021 / PRNewswire / – DriveNets, a leader in cloud-native networking software and network disaggregation solutions, today announced that its white paper, ‘Topology and description of the components of DriveNets Network Cloud as a durable solution for versatile networking, ‘ was published by the Open Compute Project (OCP). The article highlights how cloud native networks improve durability and extend their lifespan with open standard hardware elements supporting multiple software networks.
The DriveNets network sustainability model is based on the elastic scalability of the Distributed Disaggregated Chassis Router (DDC). DDC supports scaling of network capacity by adding white boxes to an existing network infrastructure cluster, as opposed to traditional router chassis that require unnecessary extraction and replacement. In this first OCP article dealing with the sustainability of network equipment, Run Almog, Head of Product Strategy at DriveNets, explains how the network hypervisor at the heart of the DriveNets Network Cloud solution, disregards the physical resources of the network, optimizing their use by the multiple running applications. up.
“Sustainability is a key topic of discussion and attention today. There is increased awareness of its economic value and critical impact, ”Almog said. “Service providers understand the operational simplicity and cost savings that can be achieved by optimizing the physical footprint, extending the network lifecycle and optimizing the use of resources. DriveNets Network Cloud can improve the sustainability of the world’s largest networks – a big impact solution. “
The DriveNets article covers the following topics:
- Sustainability is improved when networks are software-based and can serve multiple purposes, using physical infrastructure as a shared resource.
- By combining multiple network elements (white boxes) into a cluster acting as a single entity (up to hundreds of elements in a cluster), the network can be easily extended by adding more white boxes. This is transparent to network services running on top of it.
- Cloud native software can easily support multiple networks and applications from a single vendor or a set of third parties, and can easily scale features on demand, without increasing the network footprint.
DriveNets will participate in the OCP World Summit 2021 to November 9-10 (stand C36). He will demonstrate a 350Tb / s router, hosted by Credo, with equipment from Credo and UfiSpace. The DDC demo can also be seen in this video.
Additionally, DriveNets will demonstrate the network automation capabilities of its orchestrator – DNOR, at booth C36. The demonstration will also be available on the Virtual DriveNets booth.
Run Almog will present at the Summit on the theme of “Extension of the sustainability of the network via a true distributed and disaggregated architecture”, November 10, 9:00 a.m. PST in the San Jose Conference Center – Lower Level – LL20BC.
DriveNets is a leader in cloud native networking software and network disaggregation solutions. Founded in 2015 and based in Israel, DriveNets offers communication service providers (CSPs) and cloud providers a radical new way to build networks, dramatically increasing their profitability by changing their technological and business models. DriveNets’ solution – Network Cloud – adapts the architectural model of the cloud to telecom-level networking. Network Cloud is cloud-native software that runs on a shared physical infrastructure of standard white boxes, radically simplifying network operations, delivering telecommunications-scale performance and elasticity at a much lower cost.
