Autoscaling with VCCAP and StableNet®
Infosim® and Dimension Data PoC
Demonstrated live in Nice, the PoC showed how StableNet® can be used in cloud environments to monitor web application load and adapt to changing conditions so that applications can adapt to them. Among others, the following use case was shown: Web application was rolled out in a fully automated fashion in OpenStack private cloud. Bulk of HTTP GET requests was generated with stepwise increasing load profile by IXIA IxLoad. StableNet® was provisioned to monitor the load of application and instructed by a business logic script to detects it and to triggers scale out. This logic was also designed to free up resources as soon as traffic load dropped.
Without any doubt, multi-faceted automation tasks cannot be uniformally covered with a “one size fits it all” solution. In other words, each firm must establish focused priorities and functional compromises in order to develop the foundation for a successful network automation solution.
We face three primary types of competition, for various possible customers in the NMS arena. The customer types range from enterprises that need to secure the health of their network for production purposes to Telcos that require service assurance for the network services that they provide to their clients, and anything in-between.
As it has been nearly a year since Dr. David Toumajian first joined Infosim® as the Director of Marketing, we wanted to ask him a few questions about his experience at the company and some of the key initiatives that the marketing department has been working on during that time.
