Data Center Use Case

Enterprise Bypasses the SONiC Learning Curve with Verity

The Problem

Leadership within a large enterprise organization struggled with the perceived requirement of how they can rapidly upskill their network engineering and operations staff on the SONiC CLI for a new private cloud build-out.
Leadership within a large enterprise organization struggled with the perceived requirement of how they can rapidly upskill their network engineering and operations staff on the SONiC CLI for a new private cloud build-out. A lack of time, money and technical expertise hindered their ability to design, build, and manage a network with their existing in-house staff and growing automation goals.

The Challenges

Proprietary network hardware, software and protocols need to be avoided to prevent vendor lock-in

Moving to an open network operating system (NOS) like SONiC required the time-consuming retraining of network administration staff

Creation of the private cloud underlay and overlay must be error-free and adhere to best practice standards

The Outcome

BeyondEdge Verity for Cloud delivers a cost-effective way to bypass the SONiC learning curve by abstracting manual command line configuration tasks through advanced automation. This allowed the enterprise customer to architect a data center with lower-cost hardware and using open standards methodologies. The time savings gained in using Verity are as follows:
Design

Design

Up to 60% time savings – Much of this savings was due to staff not having to manually verify network CLI configurations as Verity automates the entire validation process according to standards-based best practices

Build

Up to 80% time savings – No need to learn a brand new CLI and zero-touch provisioning allows for remote installs with lower hands-on skill requirements

Design

Ongoing operations

Up to 60% time savings – Verity’s dashboard delivers centralized visibility and network health/performance stats at one’s fingertips. This allowed the enterprise organization to reallocate their highly skilled technical workforce to focus on matters more pertinent to the organization
