Avi Networks and Cisco have partnered to deliver fully automated load balancing services on a turnkey NFV platform.
The solution replaces monolithic load balancing appliances with a distributed application services fabric that lowers capital expenditure and operating costs. Unlike traditional approaches, the NFV solution elastically scales while providing much-needed flexibility, application analytics, and intelligence.
Cisco’s CSP 2100, an open x86 Linux/KVM platform and the Avi Vantage software platform seamlessly deliver turnkey NFV capabilities while providing superior elastic load balancing and expanded L4-L7 services. The solution is designed to automate network services with:
- Standard Intel x86 servers
- Virtualized/software-defined network functions
- Full REST API-driven capabilities
- Elastic “lego-block” scaling of services
