Nordcloud, an IBM company, today announced a partnership with Solo.io, the leading cloud-native application networking company, to enable customers to streamline their application delivery processes, increase efficiency and scalability, and enhance data and application security through the use of Solo.io’s Gloo Platform.
Gloo Platform integrates API gateway, API management, Kubernetes Ingress, Istio service mesh and cloud-native networking technologies into a unified, multi-cloud application networking platform.
This partnership will bring significant value to Nordcloud customers by reducing their operational overheads, speeding up delivery processes, and optimising efficiency and scalability. Because it facilitates zero trust networking in DevSecOps practices, Gloo Platform also helps minimise risks due to human error and bolster security posture.
“Through our partnership with Solo.io, we can help our customers deliver cloud-based applications more efficiently,” said Ilja Summala, CTO of Nordcloud. “Gloo Platform enhances the app dev experience while delivering broader innovation and security benefits. This is the latest example of cloud-native leaders collaborating to bring the best tech and capabilities to customers.”
“We're thrilled to partner with Nordcloud to bring the benefits of our platform to their customers,” said Idit Levine, founder and CEO of Solo.io. “Nordcloud has a strong reputation for delivering innovative cloud-native solutions, and we're excited to work with them.”
Solo.io’s Gloo Platform delivers the following benefits to Nordcloud customers:
- Enables a zero trust security model for API and microservice application deployments and allows users to cryptographically authenticate every API call, every user, every partner and every application
- Facilitates secure and scalable cloud networking and simplifies the process of managing and troubleshooting microservice applications and APIs
- Enables DevOps agility through automation and GitOps, making it easier for operations teams to deploy, scale and secure. The service mesh and API platforms are built for the cloud and leverage Infrastructure-as-Code and GitOps best practices
