Data Center Network Interconnect

Automating High-Performance Data Center Interconnect

Data Center Interconnect is a critical component of large enterprise, campus, metro, and global data center fabric strategies. By leveraging NetBrain’s patented digital twin discovery and data model technology, NetBrain learns the entire digital infrastructure, regardless of the number of data center sites, or the technologies used to make those interconnections. By having a single view of the entire DCI infrastructure, collaborative operational teams can assure demanding application and capacity needs are met. And as service tickets are created for infrastructure conditions that span multiple sites, a single view is the only scalable means to automate those service tickets. With NetBrain, network operators ensure that their IT business services are available.

Assuring DCI Performance

NetBrain’s auto-discovery and data model along with the visual management console it enables forms the ideal service platform for your network operational teams. Since NetBrain treats DCI as any other hybrid network, it can be used to automate various operational workflows upon any portion(s) of the DCI structure at scale. Moreover, NetBrain’s no-code approach to creating service workflows enables any subject matter expert with the required skills and experience to capture their expertise and share it with their colleagues, to be used at any point in the future to address the same or similar kinds of service tickets.

Control Your Global Datacenter Network as One Network

DCI Operations

High-performance data center interconnects designs typically combine a variety of network technologies depending on speed and distance. Historically there had to be teams of operators for each site and each network technology, and hand-offs were an everyday challenge. NetBrain changes all of that, by using our patented digital twin technology to duplicate your entire DCI infrastructure in real-time, with continual updates for every device, path, and protocol. If it’s connected anywhere in the world, NetBrain knows about it in real-time and can automate any operation needed.

Manage Multi-Datacenter Infrastructures with Ease

Operate Remote Infrastructures

With NetBrain’s end-to-end visual management console, delays and resource constraints are all but eliminated since the entire infrastructure is known in one place. And with NetBrain fully aware, the automation of common service workflows can now span any site and any network technology, by leveraging the previously captured knowledge and experience of your subject matter experts. No longer is the distance a contributory factor to high MTTRs. NetBrain creates the effect of having SMEs onsite, at every site 24×7.

Operate Remote Infrastructures with Confidence

Leveraging Third-Party Data

NetBrain’s robust discovery and data model is further enhanced by out-of-the-box integrations with GitHub, AWS, Datadog, ServiceNow, Ansible, Splunk, and many more. By incorporating these data sources into its core model, information is presented in context to the bigger picture. No more need for multiple tools and transferring of external information. DCI tends to have extremely high impacts when problems occur, so the quicker service tasks can be completed, the smaller the risk is.

Integrate Automation with Your Datacenter Ecosystem

Micro-Services and DCI

Distributed Data Center fabrics have a unique characteristic of moving lots of micro-services and container-oriented applications across the entire infrastructure. It is quite common to have a single application comprised of many micro-services that span multiple data centers. By providing end-to-end visibility and network intent validation, your teams can ensure that the overall application design goals are being achieved, or take remediation steps when results are not as expected. With NetBrain, the assessment and assurance that application designers’ intents are being realized is an automated process, occurring continually, and pro-actively supporting the business.
