We know companies that use our intent-based application services are happy they chose Avi Networks. But we wanted to find out exactly how much benefit comes from using Avi Networks versus physical or virtual application delivery controllers.
While it’s tempting to make fun of it, the reality is that Excel is a pretty good tool to consolidate the data from your network in one place, analyze it, generate reports, and much more.

In the two previous posts in this series, we’ve explained cloud migration using the analogy of moving to a new home. The analogy presents applications as personal belongings and infrastructure as the properties you’re moving between.
