flexiWAN Joins Prodapt's Open Virtual Exchange (OVX)
  • Prodapt & Digital Service Provider (DSP) industry, announced a partnership with flexiWAN, the world's first open-source SD-WAN platform to hit general availability and joining Prodapt's Open Virtual Exchange.

  • DSPs face challenges with an exponentially growing validation matrix to offer best-of-breed virtual edge services.

  • OVX brings Telcos, Cloud Providers, and OEMs under one umbrella to create differentiated virtual network service stickiness for DSPs, which couples the network, cloud.


Prodapt, a leading consulting, technology & network services provider to the Digital Service Provider (DSP) industry, announced a partnership with flexiWAN, the world's first open-source SD-WAN platform to hit general availability and joining Prodapt's Open Virtual Exchange.

DSPs face challenges with an exponentially growing validation matrix to offer best-of-breed virtual edge services. OVX  brings Telcos, Cloud Providers, and OEMs under one umbrella to create differentiated virtual network service stickiness for DSPs, which couples the network, cloud, and applications for unified user experience across network-based, or OTT SDWAN offerings.

Through this partnership, Prodapt would offer a pre-vetted, hardened, and tightly coupled network-based open-SD-WAN through its OpenVX technology vendor marketplace. Prodapt's OpenVX comes with unique test logic methodology, network bots & analytics accelerators around flexiWAN's modular architecture will accelerate the rollout of differentiated SD-WAN services.

 

A major concern of service providers is lack of differentiation when reselling SD-WAN solutions. flexiWAN offers an Application Framework that enables service providers' to differentiate their SD-WAN services by dynamically loading specific networking applications that run in the flexiEdge data flow or in flexiManage,

Amir Zmora, CEO & co-founder of flexiWAN.



Bundled with Prodapt's OpenVX accelerator SD-WAN automation/AI bots, testing & best-of-breed marketplace integration methodology, we are glad to join forces to help DSPs reduce the overall SDWAN services TCO and deployment cycle.

 

This partnership would drive a service ready Open-SDWAN solution framework with underlying best-of-breed uCPE vendors and service orchestrators in OpenVX ecosystem. We are delighted to onboard FlexiWAN into our partner ecosystem and strengthening our pre-vetted OpenVX SDWAN solutions marketplace to DSPs,

Rajiv Papneja, SVP & Global Head of Network Services at Prodapt.

Verizon First in World to Successfully Complete end-to-end fully Virtualized 5G Data Session

Verizon | August 28, 2020

Verizon recently completed the first end-to-end fully virtualized 5G data session in the US. This technology milestone provides the foundation for Verizon to rapidly respond to customers’ varied latency and computing needs by providing the foundation for wide-scale mobile edge computing and network slicing. Earlier this month, Verizon launched 5G mobile edge compute live for developers with AWS Wavelength at Verizon’s 5G Edge locations in Boston and the Bay Area. As Verizon extends its MEC leadership, virtualization in the Radio Access Network (RAN) becomes even more important.

SPEC Releases New SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 Benchmark

Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) | September 18, 2021

The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation’s (SPEC) Virtualization Committee released the SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark, a new multi-host benchmark for measuring the performance of a scaled-out datacenter. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark uses real-world and simulated workloads to measure the overall efficiency of virtualization solutions and their management environments. The new benchmark complements the existing SPECvirt_sc 2013 server consolidation benchmark, which is designed for a single-host environment. Today’s datacenters use clusters of servers to ensure reliability, availability, serviceability, and security. Adding virtualization to a clustered solution enhances server optimization, flexibility, and application availability while reducing costs through server and datacenter consolidation. While the SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark enables analysis of these more complex multi-host environments, it is much easier to use than the SPECvirt_sc 2013 benchmark, providing a single virtual machine (VM) template to set up its harness and workloads. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark supports multiple hypervisor vendor solutions and ships with support for RHV 4.x and vSphere 6.x and 7.x. “The ongoing evolution of virtualized environments has made it imperative that suppliers and buyers have a fair, vendor-agnostic tool for measuring the performance of solutions that power virtualized multi-host infrastructures,” said David Schmidt, Chair of the SPEC Virtualization Committee. “The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark is easy to use and creates an excellent foundation for examining and comparing performance in these complex environments that are increasingly becoming the norm.” The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark provides a methodical way to measure a virtualization platform’s performance in a dynamic virtualized datacenter environment. It models typical, modern-day usage of virtualized infrastructure, such as VM resource provisioning, cross-node load balancing (including management operations such as VM migrations), and VM power on/off. The benchmark exercises datacenter operations under load and dynamically provisions new workload VMs from a preconfigured template or powers on existing VMs. As the load reaches maximum capacity of the cluster, hosts are added to the cluster to measure scheduler efficiency and maximize throughput. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark feature overview: Multi-host benchmark – Minimum of four hosts required, scales in increments of four. Datacenter operations model – Multi-workload benchmark measures performance of hypervisor infrastructure, including how the hypervisor manager controls resources. VM resource management – Handled by the hypervisor manager, including scheduling policies. Workload VMs powered on or deployed during benchmark. Ease of use – Single preconfigured template VM to set up harness and workloads. No tuning of guest OS/software necessary. Five real-world and simulated workloads – OLTP database, based on HammerDB benchmark Hadoop/Big Data cluster, based on BigBench benchmark Simulated departmental mail server Simulated departmental web server Simulated departmental collaboration server About SPEC SPEC is a non-profit organization that establishes, maintains, and endorses standardized benchmarks and tools to evaluate performance for the newest generation of computing systems. Its membership comprises more than 120 leading computer hardware and software vendors, educational institutions, research organizations, and government agencies worldwide.
