If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Nuage Networks, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We sell this solution. I am the product manager for Nuage Networks. Nuage does not sell directly to the public; instead, they sell through service providers. One of the issues that people get hung up on is that when they look at the Gartner Magic Quadrant, but Gartner rates them in the lower-left only because they don't give up their numbers because they sell through service providers. Sometimes people dismiss that, without doing their homework. I would recommend at least considering this solution, as an option. It's a very good platform. I would rate Nuage Networks a nine out of ten.
Nuage Networks provides a professional solution experience. They are a large corporation developing new features all the time that are very useful. I recommend this solution to others. I rate Nuage Networks a nine out of ten.
Always abstract your network virtualization (same as the SDN concept) and never use a single proprietary vendor for both hardware and software. Always select the open-standard vendors for both, for example, (Juniper or HPE or Extreme for hardware, and L3 switching and configure Nuage for software overlay).
