Config Modeling

Config Modeling enables an extremely rapid onboarding of vendor network features by modeling the existing CLI directly by feature, then classifying lines as static, variable, or discoverable.  This method is extremely useful to onboard existing features and leverages the deterministic Gluware Control engine to manage network features across hundreds or thousands of nodes.

Config Modeling is built on technology base packages (routing, switching, firewall, load-balancer, WAN optimizer, wireless LAN controller) and vendor extensions that accelerate onboarding.  Customers can choose between 3 treatments for their features:

  • Expose native/raw CLI in the Gluware user-interface (static CLI)
  • Specify sections that leverage and data model variables in the existing CLI (Discovery CLI), or
  • Create form-fill based user fields for data input that will be changing over time (Variable CLI)

Key Benefits

Rapid onboarding of customer-provided configuration
No need to re-deploy network
No need to buy new hardware
No coding required

Start now, automate more features over time.

Gluware enables customers to automate as many, or as few network features as they want. If a network feature is not managed by Gluware it will be ignored in the configuration. Often, customers address their pain points first, like QoS, VLAN management, ACLs, SNMP or any network feature that is slowing down operations and affecting the business needs.

Gluware provides an immediate ROI becoming a force multiplier for your IT organization with an average of 50:1 or more reduction in time and cost for network changes with 100% accuracy.
