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.

Leostream Enhances Security and Management of vSphere Hybrid Cloud Deployments

Business Wire | January 29, 2024

Leostream Corporation, the world's leading Remote Desktop Access Platform provider, today announced features to enhance security, management, and end-user productivity in vSphere-based hybrid cloud environments. The Leostream platform strengthens end-user computing (EUC) capabilities for vSphere users, including secure access to both on-premises and cloud environments, heterogeneous support, and reduced cloud costs. With the Leostream platform as the single pane of glass managing EUC environments, any hosted desktop environment, including individual virtual desktops, multi-user sessions, hosted physical workstations or desktops, and hosted applications, becomes simpler to manage, more secure, more flexible, and more cost-effective. Significant ways the Leostream platform expands vSphere’s capabilities include: Security The Leostream platform ensures data remains locked in the corporate network, and works across on-premises and cloud environments, providing even disparate infrastructures with the same levels of security and command over authorization, control, and access tracking. The Leostream platform supports multi-factor authentication and allows organizations to enforce strict access control rules, creating an EUC environment modeled on a zero-trust architecture. Multivendor/protocol support The Leostream platform was developed from the ground up for heterogeneous infrastructures and as the connection management layer of the EUC environment, the Leostream platform allows organizations to leverage vSphere today and other hypervisors or hyperconvergence platforms in the future as their needs evolve. The Leostream platform supports the industry’s broadest array of remote display protocols, including specialized protocols for mission-critical tasks. Consistent EUC experience The Leostream platform enables IT to make changes to the underlying environment while ensuring the end user experience is constant, and to incorporate AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or OpenStack private clouds into their environment without disruptions in end-user productivity. By integrating with corporate Identity Providers (IdPs) that employees are already familiar with, and providing employees with a single portal they use to sign in, the Leostream platform offers simplicity to users too. Connectivity The Leostream Gateway securely connects to on-prem and cloud resources without virtual private networks (VPNs), and eliminates the need to manage and maintain security groups. End users get the same seamless login and high-performance connection across hybrid environments including corporate resources located off the internet. Controlling cloud costs The Leostream Connection Broker implements automated rules that control capacity and power state in the cloud, allowing organizations to optimize their cloud usage and minimize costs, such as ensuring cloud instances aren’t left running when they are no longer needed. The Connection Broker also intelligently pools and shares resources across groups of users, so organizations can invest in fewer systems, reducing overall cost of ownership. “These features deliver a streamlined experience with vSphere and hybrid or multi-cloud resources so end users remain productive, and corporate data and applications remain secure,” said Leostream CEO Karen Gondoly. “At a time when there is uncertainty about the future of support for VMware’s end-user computing, it’s important to bring these options to the market to show that organizations can extend vSphere’s capabilities and simultaneously plan for the future without disruption to the workforce.” About Leostream Corporation Leostream Corporation, the global leader in Remote Desktop Access Platforms, offers comprehensive solutions that enable seamless work-from-anywhere environments for individuals across diverse industries, regardless of organization size or location. The core of the Leostream platform is its commitment to simplicity and insight. It is driven by a unified administrative console that streamlines the management of users, cloud desktops, and IT assets while providing real-time dashboards for informed decision-making. The company continually monitors the evolving remote desktop landscape, anticipating future trends and challenges. This purposeful, proactive approach keeps clients well-prepared for the dynamic changes in remote desktop technology.
