Apstra Wins the Cloud/Data Center Award at NetEvents Global IT Summit 2019

NetEvents Global IT Summit focuses on innovations in cloud, data center, AI, cybersecurity, IoT, 5G & mobile technologies.  Analysts and journalists across the globe cast their votes for the annual awards. 

On the night of October 3, 2019, NetEvents presented, by Brad Casemore Vice President at IDC, Apstra with the award for the cloud/data center category. Congratulations! 

Apstra participated in both the London and San Jose Summits. Both Mansour Karam, CEO and founder, and David Cheriton, Chief Scientist, founder and investor were on several panel discussions (Day 1, Day 2) that focused on AI, multicloud, technology trends, and hyperscale for enterprises.

What’s critical in all of these discussions is the network. The network is a key component in connecting workloads, things and users. AI has been around for sometime, but can it help manage the network?  Apstra argued that networks driven by intent, powerful automation, and services abstraction across domains can deliver on the promise of digital transformation. It enables organizations to succeed in their journey. According to Gartner, “through 2021, organizations that fail to adjust network funding and operational practices will be three times more likely to fail in their digital business transformation.” With Apstra Intent-Based Networking, organizations are able to drive network services  based on business-intent.

Our customers who deploy Apstra Intent-Based Networking are able to achieve tremendous operational efficiencies. In this Opex calculator, customers have the ability to measure their operational savings, averaging 83%.
