NetOps Automation

NetOps for your Network

DevOps tools are increasingly applied to networking, creating a NetOps approach to building and maintaining a reliable infrastructure to support the virtualized world – a network that is both available and agile. One approach to introducing NetOps into an enterprise is to layer it into an existing solution, adding functionality and flexibility to a familiar component of your infrastructure.

A Smart Out-of-Band management network already provides presence and proximity to your critical devices, and so is well-placed to bring NetOps automation to your network. The ability to run standard NetOps tools, such as Docker, Ansible, and Python on a console server provides a new way to automate your operations at centralized and remote locations.

The “Mars Lander” Solution

 

Most of us aren’t trying to land a module on the red planet. But when you deploy to a new location, you are often sending equipment to a “hostile” environment – untrusted, unmanned and with no connectivity.  Imagine if you could send a secure NetOps Console Server to that location to manage your Day-one deployment, with an embedded TPM chip to ensure protection of the configuration files and prevent tampering.

When the appliance “lands” at the remote site, it calls home over a secure LTE connection and enables the deployment process to be managed via a centralized management software. Up-to-date configuration and image files are pulled in, and standard Docker containers and Python runtime environment allow a range of automation procedures to run directly on that appliance. A simple, secure, reliable solution to Day-one deployments.

NEW NetOps Console Servers

That solution now exists, in the new Opengear NetOps Console Servers – Network Management appliances that combine the capabilities of a SmartOOB Console Server with the flexibility of NetOps Automation. They feature an x86 CPU to power automation tools, and a TMP2.0 chip for embedded security.

The compact OM1200 appliance is designed specifically for secure edge deployments, used in combination with Lighthouse Management Software, while the OM2200 appliance is configured for data centers and high density locations.

Integrated into Opengear’s Network Resilience Platform, they provide a separate, secure management plane which supports emerging requirements in Network Management and Automation.
