The future of networking is high performance software on white box servers, just as we’ve already seen with examples such as cell phones and computers. The combination of 6WIND and Cloudify brings the promise of white box networking with a ready-to-use vRouter that can displace expensive networking hardware to save Network Operator budgets today.
NFV | Modernize Your Legacy Networks With Cloudify
Cloudify's open source & cloud native orchestration introduces a whole new approach to virtualizing and automating network services, alongside applications and infrastructure.Request a Demo
Orchestration First - How Does It Work?
1. Automate Existing Processes
Existing services are automated with no initial investment in infrastructure.
2. Open Up Infrastructure
The open framework enables the incremental addition of new services, networking, and infrastructure.
3. Begin Offering Self Service
Within only months of launch, operators and their customers can enjoy the flexibility and profitability that come with self service.
4. Start Adding New Capabilities
The Cloudify platform is entirely open – making it easy to add new services according to needs.
Cloudify, a pure play orchestration solution based on the ARIA TOSCA project, has seen strong uptake and is considered a “very strong” contender in the NFV MANO category.
Cloudify provides a comprehensive offering that ties Versa’s broad set of VNFs into a full NFV architecture through NFVO and MANO.
Cloudify’s approach supports both physical network functions and VNFs—in software. This enables operators to optimize existing technologies while migrating toward the benefits of automation and DevOps best practices without having to discard existing technology investments.
The biggest obstacle to achieving the full potential of NFV is the lack of maturity in the operational automation capabilities of the OSS toolchain. Our integration with Cloudify simplifies and accelerates lifecycle management automation, giving carriers faster, error-free operational management of their cloud-based virtual network infrastructures.
NFV is fundamentally changing the way communications services are provided, and Partner is pleased to be leading the way in our market. Our decision to use Cloudify with VMware vCloud NFV to drive our NFV adoption process dramatically shortened our time to market with the V-NET platform.
Operators and vendors alike agree that NFV and SDN provide the means to enable this transition. However, the majority of operators have just started their journey. We recognize there are several approaches to NFV and SDN, and the technology will continue to evolve. NetNumber is working with Cloudify to ensure interoperability of our TITAN platform and virtualization applications with any virtual environment our customers may require.
NFV adoption is a key component of our strategy for digital transformation, and Cloudify is helping us transform from traditional to virtualised networks that are simpler to operate, cost less to maintain and enable us to deliver better customer experiences.
Built on TOSCA
Cloudify is bridging the gap between IT & networking concepts, bringing web-scale best practices to the Telco world. As a model-driven cloud native platform based on TOSCA and built for large-scale network services, Cloudify enables VNF (network functions virtualization) providers, telcos and operators alike to realize the benefits of the cloud by radically simplifying the transition from non-virtualized appliance to virtualized all the way through cloud-native VNF, with full lifecycle management and orchestration.Request a Demo
Cloudify is leading the open source and cloud native disruption in NFV, and as the leading orchestration behind the TOSCA specification is actively participating in defining these standards.
Founding Platinum Member of ONAP, a leading Linux Foundation project aimed to define the next generation of Network Automation.
