I recently published a market impact report on Intent-Based Networking With Apstra AOS®. Apstra is an early market leader in intent-based networking, targeting enterprise, service provider and webscaler customers. Here is a summary of the report:
Modern data centers based on hyperscale, leaf-spine switching architectures are growing so large and complex they are outstripping the capacity of operators to engineer, configure and manage these networks using traditional tools and techniques. As a result, data center operators are looking for new ways to automate workflows, maximize uptime and increase operational agility while reducing operating costs.
Forward looking data center operators are turning to intent-based networking (IBN), which employs modern software methods to simplify and streamline data center network operations. IBN systems automatically convert a high-level description of desired network behavior using business-level rules into low-level configuration data that is pushed out and applied to elements in the underlying network infrastructure. IBN also utilizes streaming telemetry and real-time analytics to continuously validate that current network state is consistent with specified intent.
Apstra is a pure play IBN pioneer focused on eliminating the complexities and inefficiencies that plague modern data center operations, delivering log-scale improvements in network operation expense, capital expense, and capacity. Apstra’s flagship product, AOS® is an intent-based, distributed software system for designing, deploying and operating leaf-spine data center networks, with the goal of speeding time to network service delivery, eliminating outages and reducing operating costs.
