The CloudBand™ Ecosystem Program is the first open community of members working together to advance NFV. We offer a workspace for members to onboard applications, test, learn and share knowledge. Join like-minded innovators who have come together to progress their ideas, develop new use cases and help service providers get to NFV faster.
Alcatel-Lucent and Intel working together to accelerate NFV
Alcatel-Lucent and Intel are working together to develop an NFV platform that delivers exceptional operational capabilities and performance, overcoming key challenges in the adoption of NFV. Alcatel-Lucent CloudBand orchestrates, automates, and optimizes virtual network functions across the service provider’s distributed network and data centers. It runs on Intel Xeon processor-based platforms that are optimized for virtualized environments requiring high packet throughput. This combination enables service providers to meet their business needs and ease their transition to NFV-based network infrastructure.

FEATURED USE CASE
Check out our featured use case or read the rest of our use cases to learn how we are using NFV to transform the network.
Cloud-based Load Balancer
Load balancers are typically part of the overall application delivery controllers. They are used to distribute workloads across multiple servers to optimize resource usage, improve resiliency, reduce response times and maximize throughput. They redirect incoming requests based server load to prevent overloading any single server and are a great tool to defend against distributed denial of service attacks. Load balancers typically are used within data centers between the firewall and application servers.[...]
Register for one of our upcoming NFV Mashup webinars to learn more about an exciting NFV topic given by leading influencers in the NFV space or watch one of them on-demand. We promise that these webinars are only 30 minutes – 5 slides – 1 NFV Topic.
NFV Mashup Series #9
Optimizing Network Operations with Intel and CloudBand
As solution innovators we design towards compelling goals in emerging markets that are proven multiple times — all prior to broad adoption. Throughout this process we optimize a design and implementation methodology by removing variables over and over again until we arrive at a perfect process. It is not uncommon that while working towards the realization of target architectures focused on solving complex goals, we recognize fundamental benefits in the underlying solution. This is where Orchestration stands today. To read the rest of the blog post by Travis Volk, please visit the Radware Blog.
