Australian-owned and government-certified cloud service provider Vault Systems has chosen networks vendor Mellanox's end-to-end Ethernet solutions and networks builder Cumulus Networks to increase network resilience, stability and scalability for its secure cloud solution.

The end-to-end networking solution is fully integrated with OpenStack to provide advanced cloud features combined with ease of deployment and management.

Mellanox says Vault was looking to build an open, flexible 100GbE network that also provided a high level of security for its government clients and began searching for a network solution that provided more control, scale and stability.

The solution for Vault includes its Spectrum switches, ConnectX network adapters, LinkX cables, and nearly 300 preconfigured ICON (Intra Government Communications Network) fibre cores to connect directly into the Mellanox 100G solutions for unmetered and low-latency connectivity for Australian Government entities.

As part of the deployment, Vault chose Cumulus Networks’ operating system, Cumulus Linux, to run and operate the network at scale.

”Mellanox Ethernet solutions enables OpenStack cloud builders to achieve hyperscale capabilities without a hyperscale budget or resources,” said Kevin Deierling, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies.

“Together with Cumulus we deliver an open, high performance, scalable solution that is fully integrated with popular OpenStack distributions. We are excited to collaborate with Vault to enable the fastest data speeds across their cloud platform, and deliver advanced cloud network virtualisation, efficiency and scalability.”

Rupert Taylor-Price, founder and chief executive of Vault Systems, said the service Vault provides demands “scalable, secure and reliable network functionality”.

“Adopting technology from Mellanox and Cumulus has contributed to the high performance of our cloud and also given us the confidence and peace of mind that our network is the fastest and most resilient available in market today. We couldn’t be happier with the results we have seen so far and look forward to continuing to build a manageable, high performing network with these technology partner,” Taylor-Price said.

“Today’s cloud providers require modern, web-scale networking infrastructure that is simple to operate and built on open standards to drive agility and high-performance,” said Josh Leslie, chief executive of Cumulus Networks.

“Since Vault’s services are purpose-built for handling government data at the highest levels of security, this is a great example of how open standards can underpin infrastructure that is not only agile and efficient, but also stable and secure. We are proud of the work we have done with Mellanox to achieve such great results for the Vault team.”
