Akanda-NGINX Partnership Delivers a Comprehensive Load Balancing Solution for Open Stack
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Akanda, open source network virtualization vendor selling to OpenStack environments, collaborates with NGINX, provider of load-balancing software, to provide simplified, enterprise-grade “Load Balancing as a service” (LBaaS) for OpenStack environments.
Mark McClain, CTO of Akanda says, “By partnering with NGINX, we are providing a well-rounded joint solution that combines our sophisticated lifecycle management and orchestration platform with a top of the line load balancer and application accelerator.”
Developers can drive load balancing requests and select their preference of back-end technology, without fear of integration complexities as Akanda’s lifecycle management tools and L2 agnostic platform is now integrated with NGINX Plus.
Jonathan LaCour, VP of Cloud and Development at DreamHost, web hosting and cloud services provider, says, “When we realized existing approaches to load balancing in OpenStack were largely based upon proprietary, legacy platforms, we knew that there had to be a better way. NGINX’s open source history, and proven track record of software load balancing, made it a perfect match for Akanda’s tight integration with OpenStack networking.”
By partnering together, Akanda and NGINX aims to deliver the most comprehensive Neutron LBaas v2 solution to the market.
