SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- October 24, 2013

PLUMgrid, the leader in Virtual Network Infrastructure (VNI), today announced
that the company has joined the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner

The PLUMgrid Platform is a highly programmable software solution that allows
businesses to completely replicate the physical network infrastructure in a
virtual environment, and provision networks in minutes -- without requiring
investment in new hardware or changes to existing hardware infrastructure. It
provides a natural integration with the OpenStack Neutron service through an
open API-driven model that allows OpenStack-powered clouds to extend their
networking capabilities, increase scalability and reduce complexity. As part
of the Red Hat OpenStack ecosystem, PLUMgrid joins forces with Red Hat to meet
the scale-out requirements of service providers and enterprises, and increase
the adoption of OpenStack clouds.

The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network is designed for
commercial organizations that offer plug-ins, hardware, software, or services
for customers to implement cloud infrastructure solutions powered by Red Hat
products built on OpenStack technology. The program offers partners the
opportunity to gain the necessary expertise with Red Hat’s OpenStack
technology through access to Red Hat releases and developer support, as well
as key resources needed to test, certify, and publish solutions that leverage
Red Hat’s OpenStack offerings. The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure
Partner Network includes industry leading partners from around the world,
including independent hardware vendors (IHVs), original equipment manufacturer
(OEM) partners, independent software vendors (ISVs), and system integrators
who have joined the program to provide certified solutions and launch their
own practices to support customer deployments.

Solutions that have achieved Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Certification,
or which are certified for other products in Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud
portfolio, are available in the Red Hat Certified Solution Marketplace.
