CloudOps Extends Security Features of Apache CloudStack with Palo Alto Next-Gen Security Platform Integration and Cloud-Native Hardware Accelerated SSL Offload

CloudOps, a leading provider of best-in-class private, public and hybrid Cloud solutions for Service Providers and Enterprise, announced today the security enhancements they contributed to Apache CloudStack and the availability of their implementation and managed services for Apache CloudStack 4.3.

Apache CloudStack is an integrated Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) software platform that allows users to build feature-rich public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. CloudStack includes an intuitive user interface and rich APIs for managing the computing, networking, software, and storage infrastructure resources. CloudStack became an Apache Top-level Project (TLP) in March 2013.

CloudOps contributed code to Apache CloudStack 4.3 that enables support of Palo Alto Networks as an integrated security service and that enables a new Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination.

“Successful Open Source communities thrive with diverse, active participants, and contributions to the project’s development,” said Hugo Trippaers, Vice President of Apache CloudStack. “We appreciate this code donation, which frees up precious resources for computing and saves users from having to manually configure SSL in their environments.”

“As we deploy next-generation cloud data centers,” says CloudOps CEO Ian Rae, “the ability to provide SSL-Offload as a Cloud-native service and the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security integration allows us to meet the market’s demands for enhanced security of end-user computer and datacenter workloads without sacrificing performance.”

“Many IT organizations are transforming their networks into end-to-end cloud delivery platforms,” says Chad Kinzelberg, Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Palo Alto Networks. “We are pleased to be integrated in Apache CloudStack to deliver essential enterprise security capabilities so organizations can easily realize their cloud goals without compromising performance or security and employees can safely access any application from any device or location.”
