Stocks in this article: ALU

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Nuage Networks, the Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) venture focused on software-defined networking (SDN) solutions, today announced that Numergy has selected its SDN platform and Alcatel-Lucent's 7750 service router for deployment within and across its datacenters.

According to Gartner's Forecast: Public Cloud Services, Worldwide, 2011-2017, 4Q13 Update ( December 2013), Cloud System Infrastructure Services (IAAS) end user spending in Western Europe is  growing at 32.1% CAGR (2012-2017), and the market size will reach $5.9B by 2017.



Given these promising figures, this year alone, Numergy plans to open two datacenters, with the goal of 10 additional datacenters in operation over the next three years. They will be equipped with Alcatel-Lucent 7750 service routers and Nuage Networks solutions.  



Numergy opted to implement Nuage Networks' Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) and 7850 Virtualized Services Gateway (VSG) as well as the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router to manage and automate its datacenter networks to be more programmable and operationally efficient. Nuage Networks' philosophy of building open cloud environments that avoid lock-in, aligned well with their needs, wanting to build its infrastructure using open technologies. 



"We are pleased to implement the Nuage Networks product suite in our cloud infrastructure. The Nuage Networks SDN technology allows us to address key performance and compatibility requirements for an open environment. This will allow us to virtualize our infrastructure and to offer our customers cloud services in a more dynamic way," said Erik Beauvalot, Chief Operating Officer of Numergy.



"We are excited to work with Numergy in support of their cloud initiative, that will allow them to deliver attractive and innovative cloud services to French and European companies, but also to make their infrastructure more agile, secure, and responsive," added Matthieu Bourgignon, head of Sales for Alcatel-Lucent France.
