PLUMgrid, a provider of secured and scalable SDN and NFV solutions for OpenStack clouds, has entered a global reseller agreement with NocSys – a cloud solutions provider focused on serving enterprises and service providers in China.
Cloud solutions provider NocSys will deliver PLUMgrid‘s SDN and NFV solutions, expanding the company’s presence into China’s market. Together, the two firms help customers quickly and efficiently deploy applications and services within the cloud with the highest levels of security, scale, performance, operations monitoring and diagnostics.
Under terms of the contract, NocSys will resell PLUMgrid’s full SDN portfolio of solutions including its Open Networking Suite (ONS) for OpenStack, CloudApex SDN visualization and monitoring platform, training and professional services. In addition to its vast experience in one of the biggest technology markets in the world, NocSys offers expertise and knowledge, systems integration, and professional services for its clients.
“We chose PLUMgrid for its production-ready, best-in-class SDN solutions because our clients require the utmost reliability,” said President and Chairman of NocSys, Rebecca Lin. “With this partnership, we deliver its comprehensive, secure and scalable SDN portfolio to our joint customers ensuring multi-point recovery, elastic scalability, rapid deployment and the ability to dynamically perform upgrades across OpenStack environments.”
With government support for Open Source, the OpenStack ecosystem in China is driving a new generation of innovative businesses that are using the cloud to bring their products and services to market at a rapid pace. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), China’s total public and private cloud market size was $2.46 billion in 2014, maintaining a high compound annual growth rate over five years of more than 26 percent to reach $10 billion in 2019.
“Fueled by a mobile consumer base estimated to reach 700 million this year, China has the world’s largest e-commerce market,” said Larry Lang, CEO of PLUMgrid. “The market’s size and technology adoption rate make the need to rapidly provision cloud apps and services essential to our joint enterprise and service provider clients. Partnering with NocSys enables us to add new, high-growth customers and gives us a local presence that delivers essential regional and technical expertise as well as services.”
