Nuage Networks Introduces Virtualized Services Assurance Platform (VSAP)

2,388 views

Published on

The Virtualized Services Assurance Platform (VSAP) addresses the need for visibility and tight correlation between the networking requirements of virtual applications and workloads (the “overlay”) and the physical connectivity provided by the IP network infrastructure (the “underlay”). VSAP is the industry’s first solution to deliver operational visibility and multi-vendor management between SDN overlays and any network fabric underlay.

  2. 2. What We Are Announcing  Open clouds need open visibility for smooth operation  Growing build-out of private and hybrid clouds in key enterprise verticals  Growing adoption of flexible & open overlays for agility in DevOps mindset  Growing demand for freedom of choice in networking hardware (underlay)  Growing need for visibility and correlation between the overlays & underlay  Introducing Virtualized Services Assurance Platform (VSAP):  Visibility of service health across both the overlay & the underlay  Facilitates troubleshooting & remediation across multi-vendor environment  Topology discovery, Policy correlation, resource mapping, monitoring  Operational Peace of Mind  Service Correlation & visibility across every application, anywhere in your cloud  Nuage Networks VSP is removing yet another cloud networking constraint…  VSAP is in trials now with enterprises & cloud providers, available in the next quarter.

  15. 15. VSAP Capabilities Overlay & Underlay Correlation Service Navigation Fault Management Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Assurance Platform POLICY CORRELATION • Mirrors Nuage VSP policy objects • Tracks dynamic lifecycle of virtual machines & services MONITORING & TROUBLESHOOTING • Historical events & alarm correlation in a dynamic environment • Maintain past events to identify root cause & impact analysis • Maintain virtual objects even when destroyed as historical data OVERLAY & UNDERLAY CORRELATION • Topology map of virtual objects associated with physical elements • Correlate events between the virtual and physical environments • Pinpoint problems in overlay & underlay with alarms, path monitoring MULTI-VENDOR SUPPORT • Standard protocols for underlay topology detection & path monitoring • Underlying core network can consist of any components supporting standard protocols (OSPF, BPG, ISIS, SNMP)
  16. 16.  Discovery of full network topology based on routing peers & logical links  Topology map of physical network elements  Identification of the underlay router and advertising router for a given prefix within the DC VSAP Topology View  Path visualization for connectivity between virtual & physical endpoints  Statistics to monitor health of each network element  Display virtual objects associated with each router in the underlay
