SAN JOSE, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ADARA Networks®, a global software company in the Software Defined Networking (SDN) space, today launched the next generation of ADARA Sirius series virtual and physical networking platform, which has been re-engineered with a new implementation of DLSP (dual layer security protocol) making it 1,000 times faster and more efficient than before. In addition, Sirius now features the most advanced admission control ever designed, as well as a novel user-level granularity.
"ADARA Networks is bringing the experience of solving problems in the most difficult environments in the public sector to revolutionize the commercial market, which has been seeking the next leap forward in virtual networking. The increasing utilization of virtual machining and virtual networking for high performance computing requires state-of-the-art virtual and physical networking," said Eric Johnson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ADARA Networks. "The enhanced Sirius series is a defining moment in the evolution of virtual and physical networking, as it takes networking to another scale. It abstracts the physical properties of the network and dynamically manages in a fully distributed, logically centralized manner. Sirius is a full production ready platform for the virtual networking needs of enterprises and service providers, regardless of size or industry."
ADARA Sirius series is a critical solution for data centers and networks, as it operates in both the control and data plane and natively supports Dynamic Layer2/Layer3 Tunneling, while providing all the properties of the physical layer abstracted to the virtual network. Sirius has been re-engineered to run as a network hypervisor, able to abstract and manage network physical properties, and now provides the functionality of a network operating system. It has been engineered to provide the most advanced novel virtual and physical networking. Unlike network routers which are natively single-path, are complex to configure and operate, have high communication overhead, are slow to converge, and suffer from limited scalability, Sirius scales limitlessly, converges exponentially faster, is single-step configurable, and natively multi-path.
Sirius load balances networks, paths, links, and routes and is able to measure and use bandwidth in real time. It can discover and simultaneously utilize every route and path from every point-to-every point, based upon both network state and policy. Sirius provides advanced legacy network routers, virtual routers, network load balancers and other middleware boxes. Sirius enables enterprises of all sizes in all industries to positively impact net profitability because it is faster and more scalable than any competing product.
Sirius virtualizes networks, utilizing virtual interfaces and creating the ADARA Dynamic Virtual Overlay Network (VON), above the physical network, with all the properties of the physical network. Sirius can operate within or across domains, dynamically with full visibility into services, based upon network State and any Policy.
Sirius is able to operate in physical networks, utilizing DLSP across physical interfaces and featuring every major legacy networking software.
Sirius natively enables dynamism in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). Where MPLS is static, using administratively pre-configured label switched paths, with no visibility into services; Sirius enables MPLS to operate dynamically, based upon all elements of network state, with full visibility into services.
ADARA Sirius series retains a full domestic and international patent protection for the technology and is available as a standalone product or as part of the ADARA Constellation Series, in two form factors including:
- Software only for a fully virtualized software solution
- Software on either purpose-built or 3rd party commercial off the shelf (COTS) appliances (x86 or MIPS)
ADARA Sirius series virtual and physical networking platform is available to the United States commercial market through Tech Data and its channel of over 60,000 United States resellers.
