Enabling NetDevOps Made Easy with Nodegrid
Enabling NetDevOps through secure, vendor-neutral, end-to-end network automation
Enabling NetDevOps in your organization doesn’t need to be difficult. The secure and open Nodegrid platform supports all your NetDevOps tools, processes, and infrastructure so you can apply DevOps principles to your network operations.
What makes NetDevOps so challenging?
Many enterprises start with a particular vendor or ecosystem, and then try to make their NetDevOps infrastructure fit into that feature-set. They end up automating whatever devices or workflows that vendor supports, or only automating the easiest, low-hanging fruit of their processes. They essentially follow an “automate what you can” approach rather than an “automate what you need” approach.
You need to understand every aspect of your network operations and infrastructure so you can ensure your NetDevOps platform automates the functions that are most critical to your enterprise.
NetDevOps can be a double-edged sword, because a malicious actor could take control of your NetDevOps automation and use it against you by bringing your infrastructure down.
Your NetDevOps platform needs to be built from the ground up with security in mind. That includes hardware, software, and operational security as well as the zero trust security methodology.
NetDevOps orchestration platforms don’t always support third-party tools. As mentioned above, your vendor(s) may not provide all the automation capabilities you need, so without support for third-party solutions, you’re left with gaps in your coverage. Plus, in a closed architecture, you’re left at the mercy of your vendor’s roadmap of support, which may fizzle out in the future.
You need an open NetDevOps orchestration solution that delivers end-to-end automation by supporting integrations with commercial, open-source, and homegrown tools.
Enabling NetDevOps made easy with Nodegrid
Nodegrid solves these NetDevOps challenges with a comprehensive platform that can control every aspect of your infrastructure. The Nodegrid solution can “say yes” to any type of device, workload, or process you have in your infrastructure and automate them without compromises, providing true vendor freedom. Nodegrid’s secure hardware and software were developed with Zero Trust Security in mind, so you don’t have to worry about hackers weaponizing your NetDevOps automation. Plus, Nodegrid’s open architecture supports easy integrations with all your third-party automation tools, including RedHat Ansible, Docker, and Chef.
NetDevOps use cases
Your enterprise is made up of many different business units, and each of them has different requirements for infrastructure and network automation. For example, gaining access to your data center requires different equipment than you’d use at your branch office or manufacturing plant, and the scale of your automation efforts will also vary. Nodegrid tackles all of your NetDevOps use cases, including:
Nodegrid makes enabling NetDevOps in the data center easier with secure and vendor-neutral orchestration solutions that can control every component of your data center infrastructure.
Nodegrid simplifies your edge network management using consolidated devices and cloud-based infrastructure management that integrates with all your Linux-based solutions.
Nodegrid delivers end-to-end branch network automation capabilities so you can efficiently deploy and manage your distributed branch, retail, and manufacturing infrastructure.
