As digitalization gains momentum, DevOps has become the de-facto standard for deploying cloud-native applications. Popular automation engines such as Ansible, Chef and Puppet allow organizations to perform zero-touch application deployment for increased business agility and reduced service lead-times. Coupled with emerging hybrid computing models, enterprises and Managed Service Providers (MSP) are now able to spread their applications across on-premise and public cloud infrastructures.

Automation solutions such as Ansible allows DevOps to reach entirely new levels of service agility in application deployment. However, while the most popular orchestrators already support multiple hypervisors and public cloud services, their primary focus has been on the applications instead of the networks in which the application workloads are being run. Before the application workload can be released to the network, it must be able to obtain appropriate release parameters such as IP address, name and other properties as part of the automated process.

With the increasing popularity of application portability, micro services and hybrid computing, the existing orchestrators are not able to accommodate the network complexity associated with these environments. Existing orchestrators work nicely in silos where the applications can be deployed in known IP address ranges. However, they are not aware of all networks, IP addresses and other related properties in dynamic infrastructures that span across multiple clouds and data centers.

Automated Provisioning & Management Across Network Silos

FusionLayer Infinity  is the world’s first Software-Defined IP Address Management (SD-IPAM) solution that is aware of all logical networks – whether on-premise or in the public cloud. With a powerful REST API and the ability to be used as the single provisioning point for all things network, Infinity can become the single source of truth for all network information. Better yet, support for Infinity has been built in to the standard distribution of Ansible (from version 2.4 onwards), taking automation to the next level and allowing DevOps to proceed at the speed of business.


TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS BENEFITS

Network Team

Network Engineers are no longer required to manually provide IP addresses or network segments from Excel spreadsheets, or to add hosts to DNS. This allows the network team to provide DevOps with a single service API that they use for all their network automation needs. Better yet, by carrying out all IP address and network assignments through a single system, the network team gains real-time visibility into all the networks that they are responsible for – with role-based access control and full audit trails.

DevOps Team

DevOps teams are able to obtain and release network segments, IP addresses, DNS names and other network-related parameters via single unified REST API. When applications are deployed in networks that span across on-premise and public cloud environments, using a single REST API for network provisioning streamlines the process. Regardless of where a given application workload is being deployed, Infinity is the one stop for all networking related queries.

Decision Makers

By replacing outdated IP Address Management (IPAM) solutions & spreadsheets, our customers have saved multiple engineering man-years annually, leading to a Pay-Back Time of less than a year. Customers have also experienced greater business agility, launching new application workloads & networks in just minutes, by eliminating the manual steps in the deployment processes. Meeting compliance standards such as PCI is simplified with a unified system for all IP and network assignments, RBAC & full audit trails.
