As NFV gains mainstream production status across carriers and service providers worldwide, important facts about the realities of a software-defined network world are coming to light.

 

Service levels for network functions—more commonly referred to as “service assurance”—is a concept created in the days when network functions were anything but virtual. These network services were tied to physical devices, and that hardware was “assured” to deliver its assigned “services” at a specified up-time.

 

In NFV, those now-virtualized network functions—or VNFs—must still meet desired service targets in order for the network to support its assigned applications at expected levels.

Intent-Driven Cloud

by Juniper Employee on ‎05-08-2017 06:00 AM

Carriers and enterprises know that success today is largely dependent upon giving customers and business units infrastructure choices that allow them to continuously move faster, all the time. New and improved applications and network services must be developed, packaged, and deployed across different environments—public, private, proprietary, open. To get there, they need a reliable and scalable infrastructure with security that is consistent across all environments, reducing complexity and risk while supporting growth opportunities.

 

Making this a reality requires giving developers a new set of abstractions that allow them to specify the infrastructure performance requirements that these services will demand in order for them to deliver the business value that customers expect. At the same time, operators of the infrastructure need to automate the monitoring and remedial actions necessary to keep those applications performing as expected.

 

This, in a nutshell, is what Intent-Driven Cloud is all about.
