Businesses face a world that demands easy-to-access, high performance and scalable applications available anywhere anytime. To support these business requirements, enterprises are betting on virtualization and hybrid cloud platforms as part of their application delivery infrastructure. As a result, IT is placing demands on networks to support these agility and scale initiatives.
Unfortunately, networking has been late to the virtualization and innovation game, trailing compute and storage. However, with the rise of SDN and network virtualization, networking now has the opportunity to take the leap. And yet, despite innovations like SDN, disaggregation, programmatic APIs and intent-based networking, there’s still a gap in managing the modern network. CIOs and network architects are still faced with no easy way to handle cross-domain, cross-silo networks that span multiple clouds and locations.
AvidThink (formerly SDxCentral Research) has put together this Research Brief for enterprises and service providers looking to take control of their disparate networks—across multiple public and private clouds, WAN and campus locations. And while Network Automation promises to provide the means by which network managers can achieve this control, the right foundations still have to be laid.
Download a copy of our research brief aimed at providing enterprises and service providers with a view of the challenges in modern networking, and detailed strategies on how to overcome them by laying the right foundation for Network Automation.
