Enterprise software vendor Oracle will acquire Corente, a provider of software-defined networking (SDN) technology for wide area networks (WANs).
Oracle in a statement said Corente’s software-defined WAN virtualization platform accelerates deployment of cloud-based applications and services by allowing customers to provision and manage global private networks connecting to any site, in a secure, centralized and simple manner.
Corente’s Cloud Services Exchange delivers, secures, and manages distributed applications over diverse networks, globally, to any site, over any IP network, regardless of the type of transport, access, application or provider involved.
Enterprise customers will benefit as Corente and Oracle are expected to deliver a complete technology portfolio for cloud deployments with SDN offerings that virtualize both the enterprise data center LAN and the WAN, decreasing time to deployment of services and increasing security and manageability across the enterprise ecosystem.
Edward Screven, Oracle’s Chief Corporate Architect, said: “By combining Oracle’s technology portfolio with Corente’s industry leading platform extending software-defined networking to global networks, enterprises will be able to easily and securely deliver applications and cloud services to their globally distributed locations.”
