6WIND partners with Canonical

Networking software company 6WIND has partnered with Canonical to distribute 6WIND Virtual Accelerator, which is hypervisor acceleration software for virtual networking, in its Juju Charm Store, the company said.

6WIND Virtual Accelerator has been validated on Canonical´s Ubuntu platform to accelerate cloud networking performance.

In addition, both companies worked together to integrate 6WIND Virtual Accelerator with Canonical´s Juju, and a Juju Charm is now available to deliver the high performance and control demanded by Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) and other software networking workloads requiring low latency and high network throughput.

6WIND Virtual Accelerator software solves common hypervisor bottleneck problems that limit the adoption of NFV, data center virtualization and network appliance virtualization on Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) servers.

Juju is a model driven operations system that enables you to quickly model, configure, deploy and manage applications in the cloud with only a few commands and use it to deploy hundreds of preconfigured services such as OpenStack, or own code to any public or private cloud.

6WIND´s commercial software solves performance challenges for network vendors in telecom, enterprise and cloud infrastructure markets. 6WIND is based near Paris, France with regional offices in China, South Korea and the United States.
