Powerful Network Automation and Abstraction Software
Intent-Based Networking is a technological shift in full network service lifecycle (Day 0/1/2) operations, where software allows you to express directly to the network what service you want, without having to implement each individual task. It automatically generates and deploys full configuration of all devices based on a service description, and continuously provides assurance checks about the drift (between the intended and operational state). Intended changes come from the operator whereas operational changes can come from failures or anomalistic conditions that can be brought to the operator’s attention, usually with direct insight into the root cause of the problem.
Management Needs to Start with Software, Not Hardware
Starting with hardware when building or revamping data center networks is a bottom-up approach that leads to vendor lock-in. Coupling hardware and software on a vendor’s management tools and software suite, and makes it impossible to easily transform your network when business needs and goals change. Apstra Intent-Based Networking enables you to decouple your software and hardware choices, hence giving you choice and flexibility.
