Achieving agility is a paramount importance for enterprise IT today and one key area many companies are turning to for this is deploying higher degrees of network automation. This has led to the rise of software-defined networking (SDN), which is designed to drive automation and programmability network-wide. Cisco, the undisputed leader in networking today, has seized on this important market transition with its unique, application-centric approach namely, appropriately enough, the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). Cisco ACI has seen significant traction spurring our joint (Cisco and Avi Networks) customers to request deeper levels of integration between our respective solutions.

"Our Germans are better than their Germans": See for yourself at Cisco Live! Booth 3309

INTRODUCTION: Integration is one of those technology jargon words that gets tossed around far too much these days. Add the adjective “seamless” in front of it, you got the makings of truly great game of buzzword bingo. Hence, you can understand my slight hesitation in making integration the centerpiece of our Marketing plan at Cisco Live US this week in lovely San Diego, who, ironically enough, actually holds a whole event all about integration.

ONUG | Avi Networks Passes ONUG Fail Safe Test

INTRODUCTION: There are tests and then there are TESTs. The common variety ones are mundane such as the dreaded math pop quiz or perhaps passing the smog test on your car. Required but not terribly important and certainly not something to look forward to. TESTs tend to be life-changing, profound and often seminal, portending greater things to come. Getting a driver’s license as a 16-year-old is an example, as it’s an important rite of passage toward adulthood. Passing the bar is another, as it could be a gateway to fame and fortune if you happen to practice the right kind of law. Recently, Avi Networks successfully passed a test that I’d classify as an all-cap variety. The organizers of the test, the Open Networking User Group (ONUG), called it “groundbreaking” as the “completion of the tests signals the first time commercial open networking solutions have been tested against requirements outlined by the ONUG working groups”. There were actually three different tests that ONUG held, namely virtual networks/overlays, software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), and network services virtualization (NSV). We participated in the NSV test along with Avni Networks, NEC and Versa Networks who all had to put our respective solutions against a set of 10 grueling requirements successfully in order to merit a passing grade. I’m happy to report that Avi and our solution nailed them all.

Wikipedia defines “Hyperscale” as: the ability of an architecture to scale appropriately as increased demand is added to the system. This typically involves the ability to seamlessly provision and add compute, memory, networking, and storage resources to a given node or set of nodes that make up a larger computing, distributed computing, or grid computing environment. Lets try it in English this time . . .

Earlier, we talked about the challenges in transitioning from the datacenter to a cloud-based model (http://avinetworks.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/crossing-the-cloud-chasm/). Let’s take a closer look at the obstacles to the key enablers of the cloud: service delivery, service management and service economics.

With any disruptive innovation, there will always be innovators and early adopters who eagerly jump on the bandwagon. Today, we’re seeing more and more businesses move to the cloud as users take advantage of its utility-based model and associated economic benefits. So why isn’t everyone “crossing the chasm” and what will it take to persuade the late majority and laggards to move to the cloud?
