Cloud Networking Automation

Connect and secure services across any runtime platform and public or private cloud

Customers who trust this solution

"Many enterprises seeking to improve application delivery take days or weeks to complete networking tasks"

2017 Application Delivery Controller Study

Cloud adoption is driven by organizations prioritizing application delivery. The essential implication is the operating model to accommodate the shift from “static” IP infrastructure private data centers to “dynamic” IP infrastructure across clouds. HashiCorp provides the foundation for cloud network automation with a central service registry that can then be used to monitor service health, automate network middleware and enable identity-based zero trust networking.

Challengesof cloud networking automation

People

Central IT struggles to deliver a consistent NetOps workflow in a dynamic IP environment

Developers want to improve application delivery cycles, but are stymied by many manual networking tasks

Process

Developers still request networking via ticketing which is slow

Policy enforcement is manual or non-existent which impacts productivity and risk

Tools

Teams have to use multiple networking tools which decreases productivity

Services networking lacks automation that is scalable, consistent and reusable.
