Polatis, the performance leader in all-optical switching, and Quali, the leading provider of cloud sandbox software for DevOps automation, have developed and delivered an integrated fiber layer management solution, the companies said.
Quali´s CloudShell cloud sandboxing platform integrated with Polatis´ family of fiber layer switching products provides an easy-to-use and extremely flexible solution for configuring fiber layer connectivity on-demand.
The joint solution enables infrastructure vendors, data center operators and network service providers to quickly, and simply, execute complex equipment, system and service testing on high-speed (10/40/100+ Gbps) optical backbones.
The integration allows Quali´s CloudShell software to control Polatis´ all-optical switching products, providing the ability to reconfigure Layer 1 resources dynamically from anywhere in the world.
CloudShell´s cloud sandboxing and DevOps automation platform manages the entire lab and data center infrastructure: inventory, modelling, provisioning, lab-wide connectivity, resource planning and reporting.
Together with Polatis, the result is a highly efficient, multi-tenant system that enables fiber and equipment resources to be easily shared across multiple test topologies simultaneously without concern for conflict.
Quali is a software provider of Cloud Sandboxes. Their CloudShell software automates the DevOps lifecycle, by providing dev, test, QA, and compliance teams personal replicas of their production environments enabling total control over the development, test, and release of products and applications.
Polatis delivers all-optical switching solutions for remote fiber-layer provisioning, protection, monitoring, reconfiguration and test, with over 3 billion port-hours accumulated in service to date.
