Radisys Announces DCEngine Release 1.0 Management Software Suite

Hillsboro, OR, March 8, 2017Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, today announced its DCEngine™ Management Software Release 1.0, providing communications service providers (CSPs) with key hardware management capabilities necessary to optimize resources for hyperscale data center solutions. The new software is available and shipping today integrated with Radisys’ DCEngine product line.

Increasingly, CSPs are transforming their Central Offices into virtualized data centers, which will allow them to more rapidly embrace the principles of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). As such, CSPs are deploying solutions that provide an aggregated real-time view and monitoring of physical and virtual components across multiple data centers to optimize network resources. Radisys’ DCEngine Management Software simplifies resource management and enables the dynamic composition of resources based on workload specific demand. CSPs can use this software to provision real-time smart dashboard monitoring to learn which, and in what manner, resources are being utilized and make real-time adjustments as needed.

“CSPs are evolving their virtualization strategies and deploying data center infrastructure to support high availability applications such as virtualized network functions and real-time data analytics,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president, FlowEngine and DCEngine, Radisys. “Our new management software for DCEngine delivers essential hardware resource management capabilities that are increasingly needed in this new ecosystem. We’ve reduced the operational pain points for rack scale deployments and operations by building a suite of tools that enable automated and convenient configuration as well as resource management to meet CSPs’ evolving requirements.”  

Radisys’ DCEngine is the industry’s first open hardware platform based on the Open Compute Project (OCP) CG-OpenRack-19 specification. The specification is a scalable carrier-grade rack level system that integrates high performance compute, storage and networking in a standard 19 inch rack. Future DCEngine Management Software releases will extend these capabilities with a focus on facilitating the deployment and integration of the DCEngine hyperscale data center solution into existing SDN-enabled ecosystems.

About DCEngine Management Software Release 1.0

The management software supports the following features:

  • Intel® Rack Scale Design APIs to enable dynamic composition of resources based on workload specific demands
  • Modules for leading data center orchestration frameworks, such as Ansible, to make firmware updates easy and convenient
  • Redfish Interface 1.0 protocol support
