Cloudify, the leading networking orchestration platform provider, this week announced the release of Cloudify 4.6.
The new version focuses on modular service composition from core to edge through enhanced service support, simplifying configuration through tighter Ansible infrastructure, and supporting more cloud-native edge deployments via Kubespray.
As enterprises and service providers move to a virtualized, software-driven network to support digital transformation initiatives, new challenges arise, such as how to manage distributed networks and multiple locations at scale, while gaining control and visibility into each location.
In response to these market needs, Cloudify has upgraded its orchestration solution with a new service composition that enables the chaining of modular services built out of a hybrid cloud-native and non-cloud-native stack, from core to edge. In addition, the new version features Ansible integration, running existing playbooks through the Cloudify platform so that customers can easily connect to more devices without the need for custom integration. Cloudify also now supports Kubespray, an Ansible-based distribution tool that helps users deploy and manage many Kubernetes cluster instances on a wide variety of infrastructure choices.
