Evolving From Python to Platforms for Network Automation
Productize Your Scripts & Scale Network Automation for All
Welcome Packet Pushers listeners! On our recent Heavy Networking podcast episode, we dive into the evolution of network automation and how to evolve from individual pockets of Python to platforms that enable secure team-wide self-service.
If you’ve been writing your own automation, we’re guessing you’ve run into this problem. You have a directory, it’s got a bunch of Python scripts or Ansible Playbooks in it. And yeah, they’re way better than CLI copy-paste, but who besides you can safely use those scripts or run those playbooks? Hmm, it’s all a bit fragile. And that makes you irreplaceable. And that’s not good. You want to be able to go on vacation or be sick or have dinner without getting a call, which means you need a network automation system that is not fragile that anyone in your organization can use and that leverages the automation work you’ve already done.
At Itential, we believe automation must be practical to implement and operate – that allows you to take your existing automation work and build a system around it for scale.
Go ahead, take a test drive.
