Gluware IDE is used to develop Expert Features and Guided Workflows that integrate and simplify the mapping of network configs to business intentions, and Gluware Control further tunes those intentions.
Beginning the Journey Toward
Intent-Based Networking (IBN)
Reduce Complexity, Reduce Cost, Increase Agility
According to MIT and VMware, Intent Based Networking is:
The Model Editor and intermittent Strategic Syncs on Devices provide fine tuning for the mapping of network configs to business intentions throughout the lifecycle of networks and devices.
Config Drift provides a Runtime Verification mechanism for network config monitoring and an integrated compliance report generation utility.
Previewing and Provisioning activities leverage the Gluware Orchestration Engine which integrates the Discover/Analyze/Validation process, Contextual Execution, and Strategic Syncs – all of which help validate and abstract device and device type technical execution from business intentions.
Goals of Simplifying Configs, Reducing Cost, and Enabling Agility combined with the Continuous Intent Cycle described by MIT/VMWare delivers on the slope illustrated in the diagram below.
