Preventing network outages and grey failures

Apstra has introduced AOS® 2.1 with Intent-Based Analytics™ (IBA) with broad industry support.

AOS IBA embeds automated big data analytics into its real-time continuous validation capability, providing the control that companies require as they upgrade their network infrastructures to address their digital transformation and IoT goals. Apstra AOS 2.1 allows network operators to simplify their network operations and realize log-scale improvements in the CapEx, OpEx and Capacity of their network infrastructure.

AOS 2.1 with IBA is generally available this month. You can see Apstra at #OCPSummit18 or #Cisco Live in Orlando.

Apstra IBA allows network operators to specify exactly how they expect their network to operate and continuously validates the network operators’ intent, generating anomalies when it detects a deviation. Apstra’s approach works across vendors and reduces the time, cost and risk of network operations by alerting the network operator of specific insights required to validate that the network is operating as intended. The status quo is to sift through mountains of raw telemetry and stare at network visualizations 24/7 to detect unusual patterns. Sasha Ratkovic, Apstra CTO and Founder detailed Intent-Based Analytics in a blog post in 2017.

“Intent-Based Analytics is Apstra’s latest innovation in a network operator’s journey to eliminate network outages and gray failures, reduce cost, and build a modern, agile, multi-vendor intent-based data center network,” said Mansour Karam, Apstra CEO and Founder. “With AOS IBA, network operators can quickly detect and prevent a wide range of service level violations - including security breaches, performance degradations, and traffic imbalances. AOS 2.1 has the only vendor-independent, intent-based analytics capability that works across devices from both established vendors and open alternatives. AOS 2.1 brings the industry closer to the vision of a Self-Operating NetworkTM.”
