FusionLayer, Inc. streamlines cloud and application delivery in next generation data centers. The company’s vendor agnostic technology bridges the gap between network infrastructure and orchestrated cloud and network functions virtualization workflows. Nine out of 10 of the world's largest service providers leverage FusionLayer.

Implementing FusionLayer's DDI solution allows your organization to:

  • Enhance the productivity and the security related to your core network services,
  • Slash your Operating Expenses (OPEX) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Support emerging technologies (cloud computing, IPv6, DNSSEC) out of the box.

What Differentiates FusionLayer from the Rest?

Companies from hardware appliance background have optimized their product and solution architectures for closed computing environments running on specific pieces of hardware, forcing customers' hand when it comes to platform selection. Deploying these products as virtual appliances often lead to performance and resiliency issues because their architecture has not been intended for virtualization.

Having invented virtualizable software appliances in 2006, all products in FusionLayer's DDI family are available as ISO images that can be used to jump start secure DNS, DHCP and IPAM servers in just minutes. FusionLayer supports virtualized computing environments by VMware and Citrix as well as general-purpose servers and blades from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and the like, providing customers with the freedom of choice not offered by our competitors.

Thanks to the unique, patent-pending software appliancing methodology used in FusionLayer's DDI, our products offer advanced security features such as built-in intrusion prevention and support for centralized traffic monitoring, at lower Total Cost of Ownership than competition.

FusionLayer DDI Products

Our Product portfolio includes the following building blocks that can be integrated together:

1. NameSurfer is a software-defined IPAM solution implemented as a unified management overlay. By supporting multi-vendor environments and adhering to open networking standards, it is the IPAM solution of choice for elastic data center environments running alongside Microsoft AD and BIND.

2. DHCP Server is a virtualizable DHCP software appliance designed for traditional networking and NFV-based environments. DHCP Server automates the manual routines associated with installing and running traditional DHCP servers with support for virtually any x86-based computing environment, both native and virtual.

With standard automated software updates and DHCP security features incorporating rate-limiting alongside an Intrusion Prevention System, DHCP Server has been offering unparalleled performance since 2006. Additionally, managing DHCP Server with NameSurfer (IPAM) provides the optimal combination of DHCP management, performance and Total-Cost of Ownership (TCO).

3. Secure Name Server (SNS)is a virtualizable DNS software appliance designed for traditional networking and NFV-based environments. SNS automates the manual routines associated with installing and running traditional DNS servers while supporting native and virtual x86-based computing environments.

With standard automated software updates and patented DNS security features, incorporating rate-limiting alongside an Intrusion Prevention System, SNS has been able to offer unparalleled DNS security since 2006. Additionally, managing SNS with NameSurfer (IPAM) provides the optimal combination of DNS management, security and Total-Cost of Ownership (TCO).

4. Network Equipment Extractor (NEE) is a virtualization-ready L2&L3;discovery solution designed for traditional networking and SDN-based environments. It is ideally suitable for both traditional network environments and NFV initiatives. NEE uses SNMP polling to locate active network equipment and to extract information from their ARP tables.

By combining the network discovery function with the built-in support for NameSurfer (IPAM), NEE allows customers to find all networks activated in their network equipment and push those automatically to NameSurfer. Once added, NEE runs through the ARP tables to fetch information such as IP, MAC, VLAN, PortID, time-stamps and vendor details, populating all managed networks automatically with these pieces of information.
