Gluware has announced a major innovation in the Gluware Control automation and orchestration platform enabling an industry first ability to leverage existing device configurations to accelerate automation using its new Config Modeling technology, the company said.
Enterprise IT continues to struggle with network automation currently performing most configuration changes and compliance checks manually. Network complexity has slowed automation efforts created by multi-vendor devices deployed over many years, vendor unique syntax and lack of programmatic interfaces.
While technologies like SDN and NFV show promise for the future, enterprises must operate and build off their existing brownfield networks. Gluware provides the benefits of SDN without re-architecting or re-deploying the network. Software-enabled control is provided from the management plane and Gluware communicates to the existing network devices using vendor-specific SSH/CLI or API.
Gluware pioneered the industry´s first network orchestration engine enabling software-defined networking (SDN) from the data center to campus LAN and WAN. Gluware automates network lifecycle management on existing networks, allowing companies to roll-out a robust suite of advanced network and security features while reducing manual deployment and support costs. Gluware currently powers mission-critical networks of blue-chip enterprises and managed service providers. For more information visit: www.gluware.com. Follow us on Twitter at: @gluwareinc
