Cloudscaling Releases Virtual Private Cloud network Capability

Apr 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Cloudscaling unveiled the third release of its Open Cloud System, adding a new virtual private cloud network capability, enhancements to block storage, support for OpenStack Grizzly and certified hardware from Juniper, Dell and Cisco.

In a release, the Company noted the new version is the third generation of the company's OpenStack-powered OCS elastic cloud infrastructure system. Version 2.5 further advances the product's lead with features valued by enterprise customers, SaaS providers and cloud service providers.

The new VPC capability enables isolation of elastic cloud resources without sacrificing the core benefits of elastic clouds.

OCS VPC incorporates Juniper's Virtual Network Control technology.

OCS version 2.5 is built using OpenStack Grizzly, the latest release of OpenStack announced on April 4. In addition to core OpenStack projects such as Nova, Swift, Cinder, Glance and Keystone, OCS now also supports Quantum. More than 480 contributors made 7,620 updates in the Grizzly release.

OCS now supports certified hardware from Juniper, Dell and Cisco.

"The advancements in OCS 2.5 clearly highlight how OCS is a cloud system, with the features and refinements that customers expect to have in a product that's easy to deploy, operate and use," said Randy Bias, co-founder and CTO of Cloudscaling. "While raw OpenStack and selected OpenStack distros can be viable options for some situations, the market has clearly responded that it wants a complete system product, and Open Cloud System is the only product that delivers this." "While our competitors are launching the first generation of proprietary OpenStack appliances or iterating on distros, we're pushing ahead with a third-generation elastic cloud system," said Azmir Mohamed, senior director of product management at Cloudscaling. "This release also demonstrates how a systems approach to deploying OpenStack is both cost-effective at the start and increasingly valuable over time. In contrast to a custom implementation, Cloudscaling customers are deployed in weeks, supported by a team that understands operations at scale, and then upgraded regularly with curated releases. And, compared to proprietary appliances, customers have the security and risk reduction that can only come from holding the source code. With OCS, customers benefit from both OpenStack and Cloudscaling development velocity without incremental effort, expense or proprietary risk." Open Cloud System version 2.5 is scheduled for general availability in the summer of 2013.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
