In a multi-vendor world, you can’t rely on automation scripts to support the ever changing network infrastructure. Network Service Orchestration is quickly gaining adoption. Today, we feature Anuta Networks, one of the leading vendors focused on this market. Anuta Networks is announcing their NCX 5.0 release using YANG model driven architecture to deliver vendor-neutral, extensible and scalable platform that claims to accelerate:
ANY network service (be it segmentation, branch automation, DCI) across ANY network domain (Data Center, Campus, Branch, Wireless) for ANY vendor platform (Cisco, Juniper, F5, Citrix, Palo Alto, HP, Brocade) using ANY southbound interface (CLI, NETCONF, XML, YANG, API).
We discuss the motivation behind YANG (which is a IETF standard, btw) and how the NCX platform scales to thousands of devices across hundreds of locations with a distributed, micro-services based, multi-tenant architecture validated in Fortune-500 enterprises and large MSPs world-wide.
Anuta’s Kiran Sirupa (Sr. PLM) says that Anuta has developed YANG based device and service models for 100+ different platforms from 35+ industry leading vendors. The YANG models enable them to easily add new device and service models within days to support new technologies, vendors and use-cases.
