SACRAMENTO, Calif. – October 14, 2020 – /PRNewswire/ — Gluware, Inc., the leading provider of Intelligent Network Automation, announced today that it will showcase how Gluware Intelligent Network Automation streamlines the management of Ethernet VPN (EVPN)-virtual extensible LAN (VXLAN) in multi-vendor, multi-tenant enterprise environments at ONUG Fall 2020. The Gluware solution helps accelerate EVPN-VXLAN deployments by simplifying network management to safely and securely operate multi-service, cloud-enabled campus and data center networks. Gluware currently provides automation support for EVPN-VXLAN deployments from Arista, Cisco and Juniper Networks.

“Network management becomes increasingly difficult when enterprises scale to multi-vendor campus and data center networks. EVPN-VXLAN is effective in facilitating the flow of traffic between network domains, but it also increases the complexity of these environments,” said Lee Doyle, principal analyst, Doyle Research. “Gluware’s approach simplifies management tasks by leveraging network intelligence to automate infrastructure changes.”

Network architects are often faced with the challenge of configuring and managing the lifecycle of EVPN-VXLAN to support both legacy and new applications across varying ecosystems – data centers, virtual machines, containers and remote locations. Gluware’s Intent-Based Network (IBN) technology enables organizations to automate networks across these ecosystems, providing users with the flexibility to adapt to the needs of their unique implementations. Gluware Intelligent Network Automation in combination with EVPN-VXLAN solutions delivers the flexibility, security and simplicity modern enterprises need as they introduce new applications while supporting legacy software.

“Gluware’s intent-based networking automation platform unlocks network performance and enhances security in multi-vendor, multi-domain enterprise networks. These complex, dynamic environments have become the standard among the global 2000 and other digital innovators who rely on their networks as the heartbeat of their businesses,” said Jeff Gray, CEO, Gluware. “Together with our partners, Gluware is empowering IT leaders to increase security, enhance performance and future-proof the operational fabric of their businesses in a simplified manner. I look forward to highlighting one of our recent EVPN-VXLAN customer success stories in our ONUG Fall 2020 keynote presentation.”

As an ONUG Fall 2020 sponsor, Gluware will showcase its Intelligent Network Automation capabilities and solution for simplified EVPN-VXLAN management from October 14-15 at the Gluware booth.
