Nuage Adds Mobile, IoT to SD-WAN, Claiming Industry First
Nuage Networks partnered with Asavie to add that firm's mobile/edge technology to its SD-WAN offering, claiming it's the first such solution to support desktop, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Asavie, with corporate headquarters in Ireland, claimed an industry first itself when it earlier this month announced Asavie SD Edge, described as a self-serve mobile SD-WAN, extending SD-WAN and private enterprise networks to mobile and IoT endpoints. Adding that tech to Nuage Networks' SD-WAN 2.0 solution will reportedly enable mobile users to connect to enterprise clouds and applications without having to use VPN clients on their devices during the current remote work surge caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We've deployed and configured the imaging appliance with the software bundle on a laptop that's plugged into the management switch. From here we'll kick off the imaging process that will deploy and perform the "first-boot" configuration of the two top-of-rack switches, the management switch, and the 12 qualified vSAN Ready Nodes in the system.

Red Hat Migration Toolkit for Virtualization Makes Cloud-Native Migration an Achievable Reality

Red Hat | June 18, 2021

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced today the general availability of Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, which will assist organizations in accelerating available hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner. IT companies may have a faster, more scalable modernization experience while minimizing possible risks and downtime by bringing mission-critical applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift. As more companies start containers and cloud-native technologies, IT teams are being challenged with handling old systems and workloads, many of which may be running on infrastructure or resources incompatible with current computing realities. Without the proper tools, modernizing these deployments may be time-consuming, costly, and overwhelming for developers, IT operations teams, and business users. Red Hat introduced OpenShift Virtualization in 2020 to assist companies in breaking down application barriers between traditional and cloud-native workloads. Red Hat advanced traditional application stacks into a layer of open innovation with OpenShift Virtualization, allowing clients to transform at their own pace truly. As this trend continues, Red Hat collaborates with customers and partners to modernize and move projects to offer cloud-native capabilities via migration toolkits included with OpenShift. These services now feature Red Hat’s migration toolbox for virtualization, which helps convert VMs at scale to Red Hat OpenShift. This enables companies to access virtualized workloads while creating new cloud-native applications more easily. Migrations are carried out in a few easy steps, beginning with the provision of source and destination credentials, followed by mapping the source and destination infrastructure and creating a choreographed plan, and lastly, by the execution of the plan. About Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to deliver reliable and high-performing Linux, hybrid cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies. Red Hat helps customers integrate new and existing IT applications, develop cloud-native applications, standardize our industry-leading operating system, and automate, secure, and manage complex environments. Award-winning support, training, and consulting services make Red Hat a trusted adviser to the Fortune 500. As a strategic partner to cloud providers, system integrators, application vendors, customers, and open source communities, Red Hat can help organizations prepare for the digital future.
