Cloud Infrastructure Solutions Built to Scale

Technology infrastructure is undergoing a major renaissance to keep pace with the cloud revolution. While compute and storage are undergoing virtualization, networking has remained behind. With business models changing, carriers are transforming dumb pipes into intelligent services for enterprises and consumers through Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The DMZ line is also blurring as the proliferation of SaaS services creates new challenges to network access and data security. Finally, consumers and employees expect greater ubiquity of wireless access. We have strong ‘networking’ infrastructure such as SDN, NFV, wireless networking (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE), L4-to-L7, scalable messaging, control-plane, performance engineering, monitoring and configuration. We have expertise in ‘compute’ infrastructure using OpenStack, VMWare and virtualization. We have expertise in ‘storage’ technologies defined by SNIA and SMI-S standards. Zymr works with our clients to develop cloud infrastructure solutions that are secure, modular, extensible, and provide the resiliency that is required for around-the-clock business-critical uptime.

Cloud Infrastructure Solutions for Wi-Fi

Although Wi-Fi is nearly a decade old, it continues to have a critical impact on the technology landscape and has become a utility as valuable as power. The proliferation of mobile computing, the emerging IoT (Internet-of-Things) paradigm, and the insatiable desire to communicate rich data at faster speeds are driving continual innovation to make this medium as reliable and secure as wired Ethernet. Zymr’s core team members have been Wi-Fi innovators since the genesis of the format for over a decade.

Features of Wi-Fi Networking

  • Small Cells

    Empowering consumers with high quality Wi-Fi is key to reducing friction when accessing rich data. Wi-Fi infrastructure is evolving with small-cell technologies for denser deployment, 802.11ac, 3G/4G offload and other features. We build Wi-Fi services that leverage small-cell deployment architectures and other new capabilities.

  • Control

    A lot of smart money is being poured into Software Defined Networking in order to better control Wi-Fi from the cloud. Wi-Fi APs are being modified with APIs to enable innovative control-plane solutions. This includes discover, configuration and monitoring of networks to mitigate interference. We build Wi-Fi cloud controllers to manage distributed Wi-Fi networks.

  • 3G/4G Offload

    Integrating Wi-Fi with other wireless networks for 3G/4G backhaul is a way in which carriers are optimizing their networks. This requires the seamless handoff of 3G/4G connections to Wi-Fi networks. We implement 3GPP standards based on offload mechanism and policy-based management.

Cloud Infrastructure Solutions Using OpenStack

OpenStack has matured from PoCs to commercial deployments. Organizations like Mirantis, RedHat, RackSpace, HP, Cisco, IBM, VMware and others offer proprietary distributions and commercial offerings. Zymr leverages OpenStack REST APIs to orchestrated solutions like Hadoop-as-a-Service. We build OpenStack driven private clouds for development and testing needs. We have also engineered our own OpenStack distribution to enhance organizational capacity to engage the underlying technologies.

Features of OpenStack

  • APIs

    Innovative companies are extending OpenStack APIs to power private cloud orchestrations to deliver services. Zymr is well versed in OpenStack APIs and combines OpenStack with Hadoop to deliver Hadoop-as-a-Service.

  • Adapters

    Networking adapters for OpenStack Neutron and storage adapters for OpenStack Cinder or Swift are effective ways to bind proprietary networking and storage systems to OpenStack. Zymr develops drivers and builds OpenStack adapters for proprietary technologies.

  • Orchestration

    OpenStack’s Heat framework can be leveraged to enable the orchestration of private, public and hybrid clouds. Heat uses Ceilometer for auto-scaling. Zymr develops solutions based on OpenStack Heat and other orchestration techniques.

Cloud Infrastructure Solutions for SDN / NFV

Networks have been evolving towards greater agility for a long time. Software Defined Networking promises to do just that. OpenDayLight provides a solid foundation to build SDN solutions. In addition, NFV leverages SDN in a new way to allow services providers to offer value-added functions to subscribers. We develop Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization solutions, and also offer a technology accelerator that leverages OpenDayLight and other controllers.

Features of SDN/NFV

  • SDN Applications

    A host of new virtual applications can be developed by leveraging SDN controls. Zymr develops Software Defined Networking solutions by leveraging our strong understanding of the underlying networking.

  • NFV Applications

    NFV allows service providers to apply DevOps methods to networking and communications services. This accelerates innovation and enables a high rate of production releases. Zymr develops Network Function Virtualization applications including capacity management and security management.

  • SDN/NFV Orchestration

    Productizing Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization applications require a solid DevOps foundation. New innovations in container-based DevOps like Docker represent one of the most promising techniques to deliver SDN and NFV apps in multi-tenant environments.
