Common Tools Across Net, Storage, Compute

Problem Being Solved:

  • Lack of normalized statistics and metrics across network, storage, servers and applications
  • No inter-administrative domain troubleshooting & management tools

Open Networking Components:

  • Open published network APIs providing low-level access to Linux/network kernel
  • Standardize on Linux within network gear to consolidate skill sets

Gaps: Manual effort across three admin domains. Pull stats for an application that show resource

use of compute, network, storage etc.


  • Spread Linux tools across administrative domains
  • New processes such as: Advanced Traffic/Flow testing for network certification
  • Lower OpEx spend & IT organizational efficiency gain
