Brocade is improving IT operations and driving greater business agility for enterprises and cloud service providers.
The company has released Brocade Workflow Composer, a new server-based network automation platform to this end.
Brocade's new release is designed to provide DevOps-style network automation for provisioning, validation, troubleshooting and remediation of multivendor networks.
The platform also integrates with workflows across multiple IT domains for end-to-end automation.
"Embarking on the digital transformation journey can be overwhelming for most organisations requiring changes to the network infrastructure, organisational and operational models and new skill sets. However, when broken down into digestible and evolutionary steps, organisations can navigate the journey at their own pace," said CK Lam, director of Data Center Fabric and Virtualisation for Asia Pacific, Brocade. "One of the first places to start is to bring a new approach to network automation. With Brocade Workflow Composer, Brocade is bridging IT silos and enabling end-to-end automation of cross-functional IT workflows."
Software-driven lifecycle management
Brocade Workflow Composer is designed to automate the entire network lifecycle ranging from initial provisioning and validation to troubleshooting and auto-remediation.
The solution leverages customisable integration points to recognise events from any network device, cross-domain platform or application, and then invoke action by other tools and applications to execute an automated workflow.
It enables IT agility and choice with turnkey, customisable or do-it-yourself network workflow automation.
Brocade Workflow Composer's open, extensible, microservices-based framework provides workflow execution.
The company also provides Brocade NetDev Professional Services to organisations that require help in transforming their network engineering and operations team.
