Today’s data centers are complex in nature. Reduced agility, system outages, security threats, data storage migration, lost or misplaced data add to this complexity.
Also the adoption of the cloud services is increasing and many platforms and applications continue to co-exist, thus creating a management challenge within the data centers. Moreover, Data centers coupled with cloud services are transforming into pools of virtualized functions. Virtualized functions and new on-demand services are amplifying the need for strong overlays to achieve higher agility.
Cisco Virtual Topology System
To keep pace with this increased demand and overcome the challenge, Cisco developed the Virtual Topology System (VTS) – an SDN Controller that is designed to help resolve the technical and business challenges for building and managing cloud services. Virtual Topology System can help Service Providers build a resilient cloud, easily deployable NFV service chains, and ensure the high availability that all cloud services need.
This SDN controller helps build a powerful clouds infrastructure and NFV service chains that can be easily deployed, managed and updated, implementing a high availability cloud deployed/operated from a single pane of glass view.
Benefits of VTS
- Scalable multitenant networks: Ensures segmentation and agility of cloud infrastructure.
- Fabric automation: supports faster, agile network provisioning through hardware & software end points.
- Programmability: Provides an open, well-documented REST-based northbound API, that allows integration with an external orchestration or cloud management system
Also offers extensive southbound integration through platform APIs (Cisco NX-API) or NETCONF YANG
To learn more, join special webinar on May 2nd (replay also will be available for viewing on demand) in which our NFV and VTS experts explain Cisco’s VTS solution and how it addresses Service Provider, Data Center Virtualization and NFV requirements by delivering agility, scalable multi-tenancy, and programmability to the cloud-enabled data center.
