InterCloud Systems, a global provider of cloud networking orchestration and automation solutions and services, has announced that its Netlayer.io software platform has been selected as a Technology Partner with Computer Associates (CA).
Netlayer.io integrates with Computer Associates’ network monitoring solution and analytical systems. The integrated Netlayer.io/CA solution would provide end-to-end orchestration and monitoring functions for “next-gen” virtualized networking environments such as SDN, NFV, and SD-WAN. CA monitoring and analytics through Netlayer.io’s cloud networking orchestration would allow reactive and proactive actions based on CA’s analytics input. The integrated Netlayer.io/CA solution was presented at CA World convention that took place in Las Vegas in November 2017.
“We spent over a year working closely with teams at Computer Associates to integrate into several CA platforms including Spectrum and eHealth,” said Konstantine Babenko, Chief Technology Officer (CTO). ‘The ultimate goal was to add value by providing an opportunity for customers to increase service level optimization to existing IT monitoring systems. It is our goal to continue to work closely with CA and drive more value to customers whose networks continue to move deeper into virtualized networking as part of their global networks.”
Software Defined Networking
CA and Netlayer.io’s combined solutions work in a fully virtualized, software-defined environment. It would allow networks to:
- Significantly increase availability of the network without extra hardware investment
- Decrease amount of service affecting failures as CA’s predictive analytics functions through Netlayer.io’s provisioning engine, to prevent faults from occurring
- Provide a higher level of networking resource load balancing based on CA’s analytics input
“The Netlayer.io team has done an outstanding job of building partnerships for the future success of the platform,” said Mark Munro, CEO of InterCloud Systems. “The team is working on other technology partnerships as well to expand the reach of the platform and provide solid growth opportunities. We look forward to greater success with Netlayer.io in 2018.”
