The Nexus of Networking

With data ever increasing, networking infrastructure becomes increasingly complex and distributed as well. Network operations teams must be armed with the right tools to avoid costly downtime, meet business SLAs, and address scale for geographically distributed data centers. As IT teams must now correlate information from numerous tools across hybrid environments, maneuvering through multiple applications has become a challenge as well. Business demands agility, and the traditional reactive, break-then-fix approach with multiple control points no longer works for modern IT and network teams. With the expanding scope of the roles of NetOps and DevOps, an automation toolset is needed to accelerate data center operations and securely manage the expansion to hybrid and multicloud.
