The state of networking – now.
Network management has persisted with little to no changes over the decades despite substantial changes within network technologies. Traditional approaches have faltered by failing to keep up with rapidly evolving developer needs and application requirements. This has caused more organizations to implement automation into network services management. Automating network management provides more control and visibility into network resources.
Traditional approaches will hold you back?
Network automation can help you accelerate operations
Traditional and manual approaches to network configuration and updates take too long and are prone to errors to effectively support the needs of rapidly shifting applications and developer requirements.
These hands-on processes make it difficult to:
- Provide a high level of service to users.
- Deliver resources to application development and IT operations teams on demand.
- Implement change control and configuration processes.
- Understand and manage inventory effectively.
- Maintain configuration standards across disparate network platforms.
- Build more proactive and self-sufficient NetOps teams.
What is network automation?
“Network automation uses programmable logic to manage network resources and services. It allows NetOps teams to rapidly configure, scale, secure, and integrate network infrastructure (layers 1-3) and application services (layers 4-7).”
Why automate your network?
Here are the benefits for organizations of all sizes, across industries:
Improve your team’s ability to respond faster to increased demand for changes.
Ensure continuous compliance with changing policies and regulations.
Identify vulnerabilities and implement fixes across your entire network.
Increase network availability with more effective testing and management.
