Cloudify, the leading networking orchestration platform provider, releases Cloudify 4.6.
The new version focuses on modular service composition from core to edge through enhanced service support, simplifying configuration through tighter Ansible infrastructure, and supporting more cloud-native edge deployments via Kubespray. Cloudify will showcase the upgraded solution at CommunicAsia, taking place June 18-20 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore.
As enterprises and service providers move to a virtualized, software-driven network to support digital transformation initiatives, new challenges arise, such as how to manage distributed networks and multiple locations at scale, while gaining control and visibility into each location.
In response to these market needs, Cloudify has upgraded its orchestration solution with a new service composition that enables the chaining of modular services built out of a hybrid cloud-native and non-cloud-native stack, from core to edge. In addition, the new version features Ansible integration, running existing playbooks through the Cloudify platform so that customers can easily connect to more devices without the need for custom integration. Cloudify also now supports Kubespray, an Ansible-based distribution tool that helps users deploy and manage many Kubernetes cluster instances on a wide variety of infrastructure choices.
Other updates include:
“In support of the market’s evolving needs, Cloudify is on a step-by-step journey to extend our orchestration capabilities and make the automation of distributed network services as simple as possible,” said Cloudify CEO Ariel Dan. “As companies begin expanding their virtual networks and multi-cloud applications to the edge, Cloudify is right there beside them, extending our orchestration capabilities to support edge networking.”
