Cisco CSP 2100 and Avi Networks – The power of Data Center NFV with agile, next-generation application services

Until recently, the promise of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) was largely confined to service providers who were looking to improve efficiencies by leveraging Virtualized Network Functions (VNF) running on x86 machines. Not anymore. With the Cisco Cloud Services Platform (CSP) 2100, mainstream enterprises now have an opportunity to take advantage of NFV quickly and easily.  The CSP 2100 is also being used by service providers in non-OpenStack environments.

Let us look at the first principles of NFV that make it attractive to enterprises. NFV is designed to support fully virtualized networking components with a goal to automating network services through:

  • Standard x86 servers
  • Virtualized/software-based functions
  • API-driven approach
  • Elastic scale

The challenge has been the level of expertise required to deploy network functions on generic hardware. The CSP 2100 and Avi Vantage together provide a turn-key solution for the rapid deployment of application services such as load balancing, on an elastic NFV platform, without requiring any additional expertise. The centralized management – key to both Avi Vantage and the CSP 2100 – ensures that administrators can efficiently roll out elastic, high-performance, load balancing and application monitoring capabilities.
