High-Performance Cross-Cloud Orchestration at Tier-1 Worldwide Reinsurance Company

 
 

The company is one of the largest reinsurance companies in the world and offers a wide range of primary and health insurance products to businesses and private individuals as well as asset management.

  • A publicly traded company currently has over 40,000 employees around the world
  • Revenue of over $50 billion over its 4 business units

Challenge:

This tier-1 reinsurance company has big data computational requirements for actuarial calculations which are performed against a diversity of databases constantly. These databases run on nearly 600 OpenStack VMs, and need to continually be managed, monitored, and upgraded all while enabling continuous integration and development in testing and production environments.

Solution:

Cloudify enabled this company to deploy databases on demand, manage them, upgrade them as needed through a simple application blueprint while tying all of the pieces of the infrastructure and application together. The complex architecture contains a management portal to request environment provisioning, an existing IaaS orchestrator that sends JSON requests to Cloudify, a DNS/DHCP that receives the IPs, OpenStack cloud, NetApp storage, Chef for application deployment, alongside 6+ backup and monitoring tools.

CI/CD & Operational Efficiency at Tier-1 North American Bank

 
 

The client is one of the largest banks in North America, and the world (based market capitalization)

  • With about 90 billion USD in assets
  • Over 85,000 employees
  • Over 25 million clients worldwide
  • With more than 2,300 branches across North America
  • Providing hundreds of services under three main business lines, two retail and one wholesale banking.
  • Their services include digital banking, lending, investing, asset management, insurance, and more.

Challenge:

The organization was facing challenges with accumulating too much technology, in business silos, that was not standardized and was fragmented across business units. The need to create a single source for their diversity of technology, along with a deployment model that was easily consumable yet scalable, by developers and operations alike across hybrid stacks and infrastructure.

Solution:

With Cloudify the bank was able to receive environments on demand, being able to spin up entire app environments at the click of button, and then tear them down,  making them ephemeral & DevOps friendly - provisioning of front end, back end, queuing, storage - which formerly was quite complex.

Cloudify was evaluated against Juju and Terraform, and was chosen due to its flexibility, and control over the entire lifecycle compared to other products - with strong API support, a DSL for manifest language and blueprint, as well as being able to define the application lifecycle management - even within a compute node on a specific process. Cloudify provided the full end-to-end solution they were looking for.

The work of the Cloudify team enabled technology standardization across the entire business and all LOBs, in a multinational corporation, ultimately lowering the bank’s costs by 40%, enabling them to deploy over 5000 nodes on OpenStack in production, helped them introduce over 50 new digital services and technologies to their internal end-users and clientele, and seven new platforms, all in under one year.

Cloudify for NFV Transformation

 

NFV MANO (Management & Orchestration)

 

Belgium’s largest telecommunication company, Proximus, the leading provider of telephony, internet, television and network-based ICT services selected Cloudify as a part of a multi-vendor team tasked with helping the company implement a next-generation, virtualized cloud network. Cloudify provides the NFV management and orchestration and assists with the onboarding and deployment of virtualized network functions (VNFs) including F5, Palo Alto, Huawei, Nokia, and multi-cloud with OpenStack and VMware.

Telstra Network Evolution 2020 SDN/NFV Evolution Network (SEN) Project

 

Telstra leveraged the development and deployment of an open source software based national SDN & NFV network to also spearhead the transformation of its engineering and operation teams and their methodologies.

Cloudify is proud to be serving as the TOSCA Service Orchestrator in this cutting-edge project.

This is an award-winning solution, receiving the Network Transformation, Culture & Diversity Award at the SDN & NFV World Congress, 2017.

 

 
 

Partner Communications V-NET - Open vCPE & SD-WAN

 

Partner Communications, a leading Israeli Telco group, selected Cloudify and VMware to launch its new vCPE and SD-WAN solution called V-NET. Based on the open-source TOSCA standard, V-NET was delivered through a unique, cloud-native approach to network service orchestration using an agile/incremental approach referred to as "orchestration first." The approach focuses on designing and deploying the NFV orchestration and automation capabilities first atop the company's existing network infrastructure (physical or virtual). New virtualized network services can then be deployed in days or weeks rather than months.

This is an award-winning solution, receiving the Network Transformation, Cloud & Carrier Service: Best vCPE/uCPE Enterprise Service at the SDN & NFV World Congress, 2017.

Accelerating Network Operators’ NFV MANO Transformation - Metaswitch & Sprint

 

Cloud native communications software leader Metaswitch and Sprint are automating NFV management and orchestration (MANO) increasing service agility and reducing service-affecting manual errors. Metaswitch is OEMing Cloudify’s virtual network functions management (VNFM) capabilities in the delivery of its own VoLTE TAS, vSBC and vIMS VNFs and the two companies are collaborating closely in customer engagements, bridging gaps in operators’ NFV MANO systems.

Orchestrating Deployment, On-boarding, Service Chaining, & Management of VNFs – NetNumber

 

With Cloudify as the VNF Manager (VNFM) and using a TOSCA-based blueprint as the topology, the NetNumber TITAN Master is deployed onto OpenStack, or any other cloud. Cloudify makes it possible to automatically on-board the TITAN Edge nodes and connects them to the Master, and this edge architecture can be applied to any distributed, federated edge networking use case. Once deployed, Cloudify also automates scaling or healing of the nodes as needed based on metrics with policy management, and as with any Cloudify blueprint, this process is always repeatable.

VoLTE TAS, vSBC and vIMS VNFs and the two companies are collaborating closely in customer engagements, bridging gaps in operators’ NFV MANO systems.

ASOCS demonstrates ONAP-compatible orchestration and automation with Cloudify

 

Using Cloudify’s open source automation manager, Cyrus will be fully automated and orchestrated in accordance with ONAP. Cloudify Manager detects a policy in the blueprint that meets the condition, and automatically triggers a healing workflow. If Cloudify Manager detects an overload of resources, then it automatically triggers a scaling workflow and adds more capacity.
