Avi Networks Delivers ‘Elasticity Everywhere’ with Zero Code Automation
Chennai, India — April 3, 2018 — Avi Networks, the next-gen application delivery platform, launched new features today that make it easy for enterprises to automate the deployment and scaling of applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Enhancements to Avi’s integration with datacenter management platforms, Ansible and Terraform, paired with Avi’s machine learning capabilities let IT teams provision infrastructure resources and application services without the need to code complex logic. This solution can be deployed across the largest cloud providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, as well as private data centers.
Until now,enterprises had to manually configure applications and use custom scripts toprovision resources within their environments. The architectural innovations inAvi’s platform remove this hurdle to deliver best-in-class automation,elasticity, and self-service. As demand increases for an application, Avi canautomatically spin up additional servers, cloud infrastructure, networkresources, and application services for the application.
“Automatingapplication deployment and provisioning is essential for enterprises today.However, organizations need to code and maintain complex scripts to deployapplications in each respective environment, and for each potential scenario.The move towards hybrid and multi-cloud only makes this experience morepainful,” said Gaurav Rastogi, Automation and Analytics Architect at AviNetworks. “We’ve eliminated that hassle. You don’t have to think about inputsor code anymore. Simply declare the desired outcome and let Avi’s intent-basedsystem do the rest.”
“Automationis revolutionizing how applications are deployed and how applications scale,”said Jim Duffy, Senior Analyst for Networking at 451 Research. “Avi’sintent-based capabilities combined with integrations with automation tools aredesigned to deliver elastic application networking services through a single,infrastructure-agnostic platform. This has the potential to simplify cloudmigration considerations, streamline operations, and improve an enterprise’sability to do more with less.”
Avi Vantageis a software-only application delivery platform that brings detailed analyticsand automation to load balancing and web application firewalls. Enterpriseslike Adobe Systems and Swisslos use Avi to migrate and scale their operationsin the cloud and bring cloud-like agility back to their data center.
ZOLL Data, adivision of ZOLL Medical Corporation, a leading developer of emergency medicaldevices and software, began using Avi Networks and Ansible when launching a newservice on Amazon AWS.
“AviNetworks’ analytics and zero-code automation with Ansible are a powerfulcombination,” said Garrett Zorigian, Director of Site Reliability Engineeringat ZOLL Data. “The automation makes deployment fast and efficient, and theanalytics give us visibility we never had before. It’s an ideal solution forAWS, and it gives us enormous flexibility if we decide to extend into otherclouds.”
Theintent-based and machine learning capabilities are native to the platform, andthe Ansible and Terraform integrations for multi-cloud automation are nowavailable at no extra cost to all new and existing customers of the Avi VantagePlatform.
