Report - ACG Market Impact: IBN
If automation is top of mind for your business this year, it’s likely you are laser-focused on minimizing the complexity in your data center initiatives. It’s no secret that modern data centers based on hyperscale, leaf-spine switching architectures are increasingly large and cumbersome. Especially as these efforts surpass the capacity of operators to engineer, configure and manage these networks using traditional tools and techniques. As businesses transition and evolve their needs, data center operators will look for new ways to streamline data center projects to embrace new technologies that overall result in reduced costs and greater agility.
It’s imperative to understand the evolving intent-based networking landscape (IBN), to simplify and modernize your data center network operations. One major advantage of the IBN model is that it utilizes streaming telemetry and real-time analytics to continuously validate that the current network state is consistent with your specified intent.
Whether you have Arista, Cisco, Cumulus, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Juniper or Microsoft’s SONiC in your environment, you have choice and freedom with a multi-vendor network approach to IBN.
