Itential For Multi-Domain Networks

Add elegance, intelligence and diversity to your network automation systems.

Modern Networks are Complex, Diverse & Distributed

Today’s businesses require network automation capabilities that span multiple and distinct automation domains from traditional physical networks to next generation programmable networks, SD-WANs, cloud networks, and VNF-based infrastructures.  Unfortunately, most network automation platforms and orchestration tools are limited to their specific automation domains. Implementing multiple network automation tools without connecting them to a common automation framework creates a plethora of problems including:

  • Incomplete or open-loop automation stories vs. closed-loop automations
  • Expensive, complicated, and duplicative integrations between each disparate automation tool and every other north, east, and west bound system within the ITSM ecosystem
  • Design inflexibility and vendor lock

Itential solves these problems by consolidating and extending the capabilities of individual network automation tools into a single, intelligent network API to other systems in the IT ecosystem. Itential provides a single northbound conduit, simplifying integration and spanning automation stories across complex, diverse and multi-domain environments.

An Automation Platform as Powerful & Robust as Your Network

Itential is purpose-built for today’s complex, heterogenous networks. From cloud-based networks to data center networks and from NFV to distributed WANs – Itential includes the features that you need for even the most difficult, large enterprise and service provider class network automation projects.

  • Create cohesive automation stories that span multiple domains and network types
  • Integrate your DevOps, analytics and ITSM systems once vs. once per network type
  • Save time with closed-loop automation capabilities and deep pre and post check capabilities
  • Choreograph activities of lower level configuration tools and controllers into orchestration-level use cases
Integrations

We originally chose Itential to help us accelerate what we were doing around Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) because of Itential’s intuitive user-interfaces and out of the box integrations with our DevOps tools. Once we saw the power and speed that we were able to obtain with Itential we started expanding it to work with our Ansible deployments as well. The Itential solution allowed us to combine what we were doing with Ansible, Cisco and soon an SD-WAN provider, into a single, cohesive network automation strategy.
