SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/03/13 -- 6connect, Inc., a world leader in software-defined network control, today announced that global cloud infrastructure provider, iland will use its ProVision Software Suite, part of the company's Dynamic Network Control Platform (DNP). iland's decision to utilize 6connect's ProVision software demonstrates the value which DNP creates for provisioning IP resources for virtual and physical machines.
iland, VMware's Service Provider Partner of the Year Global and Americas, is using 6connect's ProVision Software Suite to dynamically provision the network resources that its virtual machines and their related infrastructure require. Its move to 6connect will drastically reduce the provisioning time for these virtual machines and their supporting infrastructure.
iland will primarily use ProVision for assignment of IP subnets to its customers, along with individual IP assignments for relevant devices. The company is continuing to expand its support of IPv6, and is applying its allocation policy to 6connect's system, which features a simple API for integration.
"We're excited to work with such a trusted name in cloud infrastructure services," said Bill Bien, 6connect's Chief Executive Officer. "Our ProVision solution is a perfect fit for providers who rely heavily on virtual machines and want to minimize the time and complexity from managing them."
iland will also use ProVision to address a number of challenges that stem from manual provisioning. These include: systematically assign Static IPv4/IPv6 addresses per server, provisioning subnets to customers and update SWIP/WHOIS data, handling multi-service management of IPv4, IPv6, DNS and Assets from a single interface and RESTful API, service-oriented IPAM that prioritizes IP resource configurations by multiple regions, tags, and permissions and integrated management of network assets via network automation and RESTful API.
iland conducted an extensive evaluation of the 6connect platform prior to moving forward with utilizing the ProVision software suite. The evaluation determined that 6connect's system met all of the specific requirements to solve iland's operational concerns, and found that DNP would also improve and streamline their internal process.
"We are looking forward to leveraging 6connect's suite," said Justin Giardina, iland's Chief Technology Officer. "Its centralized management and integrated DNS provisioning significantly ease the asset management burden. It also allows us to be more responsive to our customers. We have to be able to scale rapidly to meet the dynamic needs of our growing global customer base which means simplifying and automating our business operations. 6connect will help us do that."
