An Open View on Network Infrastructure Agility

January 24, 2017


After a recent and might I add very productive meeting with the executives over at Vyatta it became very apparent as to why we partnered with this technology in the first place. In this blog entry I will discuss On-demand Networking, the Vyatta technology, and the benefits of the implementing Vyatta.

Whether you have begun to dabble into Virtualization or you have been virtualized since the announcement of VMware you might want to listen up; this could become of great interest to you as you continue to virtualize your infrastructure. Vyatta means “open” and they rethought open network standards by delivering a software-only solution to open the layer 3+ networking stack to be available as an application for physical, virtual and cloud architectures. Introducing, Vyatta On-Demand Networking.

First let’s talk about what On-Demand Networking means and how it could help your organization create an agile network that can maintain and withstand the network demands of a cloud or virtual environment. On-demand networking is the instant delivery of software based IP Networking on any platform within any architecture. On-demand Networks offer organizations who leverage virtualization and cloud environments a unique option of a complete enterprise-class routing and security feature set that can be provisioned, licensed, billed and scaled on-demand, truly presenting the network as an application.

Some of the key benefits of using on-demand networking are: 1) platform agnostic flexibility, 2) removes the limitations of box-bound network devices giving users a truly scalable network, 3) simple migrations from physical networks to virtual environments, 4) template-based deployment of custom network configurations, 5) integration with 3rd party management, 6) and a utility licensing option.
