Software Defined Services
Network operators and enterprises are responsible for configuring policies to respond to a wide range of network events and applications. They have to manually transform these high level-policies into low-level configuration commands while adapting to changing network conditions. Often, they also need to accomplish these very complex tasks with access to very limited tools. As a result, network management and performance tuning is quite challenging and thus error-prone.
IT departments are under constant pressure to meet user and application demands, aware that cloud deployments offer an easier and faster alternative but often pinned down by legacy deployment models. The problem stems from the inability of those legacy models to adapt to meet expectations for rapid provisioning, continuous delivery, and consistent performance across multiple environments. When it comes to delivering applications, the challenges of performance, security, and reliability have not changed. What have changed are the environments and conditions under which those challenges must be addressed.
MAKEIP Software defined services addresses these challenges with its expertise of DevOps and technologies like software defined networking (SDN), SDWAN and network functions virtualization (NFV).
Our team works with leading SDN platforms and offer rapid deployment of application layer services with automation, and orchestration within multiple environments and data centre models as per customer requirements.
While the changing user landscape has dramatically altered operational policies, applications are also undergoing radical changes in architecture, thanks to virtualization, cloud computing, and the rise of API-based models. These changes directly impact how application services must be provisioned and managed. New services and service provisioning methods have emerged in response, along with new integration models between cloud providers and enterprises, service ecosystems, and service providers. In this rapidly changing environment, the pressure to meet increasing demands often forces IT operations to adopt broadly available, open source solutions despite the complexity those solutions introduce. Such solutions have the advantage of being available now, at little or no cost, which often offsets concern about the longer-term technical debt such options incur.
MAKEIP application delivery models offer services such as availability, one that better aligns with trends toward micro-services and API-based architectures. MAKEIP key expertise lies building abstraction layer: the decoupling of services from their underlying infrastructure. Modern architectures favour a foundation of computing and network resources that can be abstracted into a fabric of pure resources that can be sliced, diced, and isolated—and thus more elastically utilized by higher-layer services. This application service delivery model also adheres to this principle to enable the efficiency, responsiveness, and flexibility required in the application service layer of the data centre stack.
