Siaras and KVH to Present OpenStack-based, Hybrid Cloud-as-a-Service at OpenStack Summit in Vancouver

LOS ALTOS, CA, MAY 13, 2015 —Siaras, together with KVH (now part of Colt), will be presenting various aspects of its cloudScape carrier-class hybrid cloud management solution at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, BC, May 18-22. Engineered for deployment within cloud service provider (CSP) infrastructure, cloudScape enables the delivery of hybrid cloud-as-a-service (HClaaS) offerings that can be controlled via a single OpenStack API or GUI. Using HClaaS, enterprises can federate their cloud footprints across a wide variety of public and hosted private cloud services with the simplicity, control, and extensibility of a single, open interface. Siaras cloudScape goes a step further by also orchestrating policy-based intercloud WAN connectivity.

KVH and Siaras Joint Presentation

  • Title: KVH: A Multi-layer OpenStack Use Case
  • When: Thursday, May 21, 11:05am
  • Where: Marketplace Expo Hall Demo Theater

Siaras CTO Sig Luft and KVH director of software development Caleb Crane will deliver a presentation that analyzes real-world use cases being implemented by KVH. In these use cases, KVH employs Siaras cloudScape software in order to offer its customers a “cloud of clouds” service, i.e., an OpenStack-based cloud service with a variety of OpenStack and non-OpenStack public and hosted private “underclouds.” The non-OpenStack clouds that can be managed through this multi-layer approach include VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS), with IBM SoftLayer and Microsoft Azure being added.

Siaras Brown Bag Tech Talk

  • Title: OpenStack as an Uber Cloud
  • When: Wednesday, May 20, 10:45am
  • Where: Room 106

Sig Luft will also be presenting a detailed engineering description of how OpenStack, with appropriate extensions, can be used to manage multiple underlying clouds (“underclouds”) and networks (“undernetworks”) rather than simply managing cloud data center hardware. This technique affords enterprises a more seamless and extensible cloud footprint while still enabling them to take advantage of diverse, non-OpenStack cloud services.

About Siaras

Siaras provides carrier-class hybrid cloud management software to cloud service providers (CSPs). Using Siaras cloudScape, CSPs become meta cloud providers—infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) clouds incorporating a broad array of dissimilar hosted private and public cloud data centers as well as traffic-managed intercloud WAN connectivity. By offering meta cloud services to their enterprise customers, CSPs deliver a superior cloud product with greater flexibility, visibility, and control, thereby making themselves more relevant, expanding market share, and increasing revenue.
