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”.
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.

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.
