My colleague wrote a blog on What is “Intent-Based” Anyway? To see is to believe and that’s exactly what this blog “intends” to do. Let’s put your fingers on something tangible while catching you up on the next big thing that is “intent-based networking”.
Any vendor will tell you they have detailed analytics and an intuitive interface (GUI). They'll state that certain tasks can be done in “just a few clicks”. Most vendors over-promise and under-deliver in this area, which is why we at Avi Networks took up the challenge of showing (not just telling) how much better the experience can be with our load balancer.
Visit AviNetworks.com or F5 Networks’ website and there will be no shortage of the word “automation”. In fact, both load balancing solutions sound very much alike according to their marketing teams, but in practice they couldn’t be more different.
We now live in a multi-cloud world. And it makes sense. Enterprises need highly available applications that can support customers all over the globe. Hybrid and multi-cloud environments, the concept of managing multiple infrastructure environments together as one, give businesses choice and flexibility with their infrastructure. Why would you lock themselves into a single data center or a single cloud?
Chances are you’ve seen the phrase “intent-based application services” or “intent-based load balancer” (hint: that language is used all over Avi Networks' website). Application services refer to load balancing, WAF, and service mesh. But what about “intent-based”? Is “intent-based” just a bunch of marketing fluff? Actually, no. I’m well-versed in the fluff of industry peers. The story behind intent-based is straight forward.

Applications don’t just support the business; applications are the business. The number of applications and end-users who rely on these applications are increasing exponentially. As such, your applications remain a popular target of attackers, and a successful attack could significantly harm your business.
It’s go-time for GDPR. The EU’s sweeping new General Data Protection Regulation is set to take effect May 25. Any business that controls or processes the personal data of customers in the European Union has less than a month to comply.
Avi Networks Solutions Engineer Mitch Chen works with many enterprises moving to the cloud. We sat down with him to get some insights and tips about migrating applications to Microsoft Azure.
