Acquired by Infoblox in Nov 2019, SnapRoute is elevating the network into the cloud native era.
Delivering the industry’s first Cloud Native Network Operating System (CN-NOS), SnapRoute’s unique containerized microservices architecture and embrace of DevOps principles, empowers companies to accelerate application time to service, enhance security and compliance, and improve run-time operations to drive business velocity and growth.
Snaproute’s Cloud Native Network Operating System (CN-NOS)
- Built on containerized, microservices architecture.
- Embedded Kubernetes functionality to enable deployment and management of networks using DevOps toolchains, in addition to traditional means (e.g. CLI); unifying the infrastructure operating model and enabling CI/CD for infrastructure.
- Distributed control and data planes with standard protocols. No reliance on centralized controller.
- Economics that enable cost effective deployment to hundreds or thousands of points of presence.
SnapRoute CN-NOS Demonstration with Adam Casella
This is a demo using a BGP topology with CN-NOS running on Edgecore whitebox switches and Ixia traffic generators. Presented by Adam Casella, Co-Founder and CTO.
Ease of device management using both industry-standard CLI and native Kubernetes support is highlighted. Hitless upgrades of containerized adjacency and BGP microservices with live data-plane traffic shown. DevOps tool integration realized with streaming telemetry into InfuxDB, Grafana, and log aggregation using FluentD into an ELK stack.
