As solution innovators we design towards compelling goals in emerging markets that are proven multiple times — all prior to broad adoption. Throughout this process we optimize a design and implementation methodology by removing variables over and over again until we arrive at a perfect process. It is not uncommon that while working towards the realization of target architectures focused on solving complex goals, we recognize fundamental benefits in the underlying solution. This is where Orchestration stands today.
OpenStack is capable of reducing implementation errors, administrative effort and specific knowledge of expert systems. And although this may not be as glamorous as elasticity or network-enabled security, the idea of fundamentally improving service deployment success and the quality of life for those responsible is compelling. We minimize exposure to MACD (Move Add Change or Delete) activity by deploying, testing, and producing parallel systems while deterministically decommissioning prior resources based on individual’s risk tolerance.
Alcatel-Lucent’s CloudBand Ecosystem allows administrators the ability to capture this “perfect process” into application blueprints, harnessing the power of OpenStack, Nuage (Software Defined Networking) and their NFV platform. These blueprints simplify the MACD procedures of managing expert systems into repeatable service calls — based on the requirements of vertical applications or application’s end-to-end system profiles. This improves service quality, allows for business hour deployments, and enables a broader set of administrators.
CloudBand is helping to empower customers, internal buyers and service administrators via orchestration. Radware compliments deliveries with cloud load balancing service and DDoS service functions that improve the availability, performance and security of applications. Together we are delivering better solutions.
