A fully automated, declarative toolbox for an infrastructure that matches the dynamics of digital business
Here are some bricks you actually want to step on. Virtualization is the key ingredient for rendering the IT infrastructure invisible and benefiting from cloud-based building blocks. It reduces costs and deals with the mounting complexity of divergent technology. What’s more, with infrastructure rapidly composed from Lego-style building blocks, businesses can become more agile, more responsive, and scale up faster. A complete, software-defined infrastructure stack can be deployed in minutes. With “micro services” running in independently deployable containers, it’s no child’s play; it’s a powerful enabler to running a business with similar qualities.
- With compute, storage, network, and software packaged in autonomous, independent software containers that run microservices, IT infrastructure becomes an ultra-flexible, highly scalable commodity.
- Programmable platforms allow for the target-state infrastructure and environment to be described in the form of code, which can then be executed via API access – hiding implementation and technical details.
- A declarative, “soft-code” style of programming the infrastructure, along with an AI-enabled orchestration engine, drives rapid deployment of infrastructure platforms in a self-healing setup.
- Netflix rapidly deploys services across multiple AWS accounts and regions over 4,000 times a day. It’s an evasive, global service that balances service availability, latency, data replication, compute capacity, and efficiency – all with standard building blocks and “auto-magically” monitoring the ever-changing state of the infrastructure.
- Using a declarative infrastructure, a leading US cruise line uses a library of modules, which enables it to quickly script new platforms, reducing build time by up to 90% and significantly decreasing risk by limiting manual elements.
- Reduction of infrastructure costs and complexity, cutting down on technology options and integration issues
- Infrastructure aligning directly with business, together building a floor-to-ceiling capability; combining compute, network, storage, and software for immediate business outcomes.
- Technology diversity and loose coupling of components, taking an elastic approach towards resiliency and scalability while eliminating configuration drift and mitigating risk.
