I wanted to draw attention to this WAN Orchestration demonstration video from Nuage Networks to highlight that you don’t need to become a programmer to bring orchestration to your network.
Its worth a 3 minute watch to get some new ideas on how to simplify ownership and management of a large WAN.
I reject the idea that NetOps means every engineer needs to be coding in Python. That simply doesn’t scale. A very few people will use Python to provide customisation of platforms and frameworks like Nuage Networks Networks, VMware NSX and Glue Networks. But most of us will make things work just fine with orchestration products that will automate the network for us.
This is the deliverable that Software Defined Networking will bring you.
