Launching the Gold Standard for Network Burst:

Embracing Microsoft Azure's Public Cloud

Microsoft Azure Logo

Helsinki, Finland,  ⎯ FusionLayer has today unveiled a new FusionLayer Infinity 2.5 series, the first Software-Defined IP Address Management solution targeted at enterprises and Managed Service Providers (MSP) active in IT transformation and multi-cloud initiatives. The latest addition to the FusionLayer product family enhances the company’s Hybrid IT solution portfolio by introducing plug-and-play support for Microsoft Azure, the fastest growing public cloud solution for application delivery.

Leading industry analysts such as Gartner have suggested that Hybrid IT will become the most common usage of cloud by 2020. This is expected to cut down the Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) incurred by businesses as the Hybrid IT model allows companies to pay only for the computing capacity that they use. Another prediction from IDC is that 80% of IT organizations will be committed to hybrid architectures by 2018. These developments are expected to accelerate the enterprise IT transformation during the next 2-3 years.

Originally introduced in 2013, the adoption of Hybrid IT strategies was slow to pick up due to information security concerns. These concerns have now been alleviated as many public cloud providers such as AWS and Microsoft Azure have added Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) into their service portfolios. The VPC technology allows enterprises to extend their networks into public clouds securely without exposing their applications to the public internet.

According to RightScale’s 2017 State of the Cloud Report, 85% of enterprises incorporate a multi-cloud strategy as part of their IT transformation efforts. While many small and mid-sized companies are pursuing an IT strategy that is purely based on public cloud services, most enterprises continue to manage their risk through hybrid cloud strategies that leverage a mixture of private on-premise data centers and public cloud services such as Amazon Web-Services and Microsoft Azure.

“As larger companies gear up their IT transformation efforts, we are beginning to see cloud-native business architectures that span across on-premise data centers and multiple public cloud services” said Teemu Sorvisto, the Chief Executive of FusionLayer. “A common problem in these hybrid environments is that there is no single source of truth for the enterprise network data with related audit trails. This introduces compliance issues and functions as a bottleneck for network burst, thereby hurting the financial returns of the IT transformation investments.”

While traditional on-premise enterprise networks have been managed with DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) appliance solutions from companies like Infoblox, the teams responsible for them are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the pace of change. These difficulties are magnified by the new breed of application development specialists – the DevOps – who are used to interacting with REST-based Application Programming Interfaces (API). FusionLayer Infinity helps organizations by unifying the old and the new world into a single solution.

“Managing enterprise network assignments across on-premise data centers and public cloud services is not a trivial work when carried out at scale” continued Teemu Sorvisto. “The latest FusionLayer Infinity allows network teams to activate and deactivate networks in seconds across on-premise infrastructure and in multiple public clouds. The latest FusionLayer Infinity ships with a developer-friendly REST API for all network data that the DevOps are thrilled to use.”

The new version of FusionLayer Infinity is available immediately. Please contact us to schedule a live demonstration or an onsite trial.
