Brocade today announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Vyatta. Vyatta’s next-generation, on-demand network OS delivers advanced routing and security functionality for physical, virtual and cloud networking environments. Vyatta pioneered and created the industry’s first and only platform-independent network operating system, the Vyatta Network OS. This OS enables system architects to secure and connect virtual, cloud or physical infrastructures while delivering the same elasticity, mobility, auto-provisioning and utility licensing benefits of the applications they support.
Brocade plans to utilize Vyatta technology and expertise with the goal of offering its customers an end-to-end architecture built on a highly virtualized, dynamic network infrastructure. This virtualized data center infrastructure promises to make both service providers and enterprises more agile through accelerated deployment and reduced development cycles in their networks. It also enables Brocade to extend its open data center fabric and IP networking technologies directly into any number of server hypervisor environments that gives customers the utmost choice and flexibility in selecting the right solution for their business needs.
