Agile Datacenter Networks
Altran is a pioneer and leader in converged datacenter solutions. As part of a new offering in datacenter network design, Altran has launched an end-to-end datacenter switching and orchestration solution that provides full connectivity across tenant computing infrastructure without degradation in switching and routing performance. The solution includes a full software and control stack for top-of-rack (ToR), leaf-and-spine switches and routers with an overlay network design that provides tenant virtual machine mobility across connected datacenters enabling “any workload anywhere.”
Using our software frameworks and a unique solution design, Altran can build and manage converged datacenter networks by leveraging a Layer 3 fabric with CLOS-based network design, a VXLAN-based data plane, which is extendable to millions of end points, and a control plane that leverages an overlay network that provides Layer 3 routing to endpoints. This allows datacenters to scale up, add more computing capacity, increase storage and upgrade the network fabric.
The Altran Software Defined Datacenter solution supports virtualized and software-defined network (SDN) functions, which allows for efficient use of hardware resources with the flexibility to provide demand-based network functions.
Leveraging its Big Data and analytic frameworks, the Altran Management and Orchestration solution can respond proactively and predictably in an agile manner to ensure resources are managed efficiently. Our Security Management framework enhances the solution by providing an orchestration-controlled tool and methodology to ensure that vulnerability and penetration testing are performed as required and in an automated fashion.
Altran’s world-class digital design capabilities provide a business-focused set of operational interfaces designed specifically for automated and orchestrated networking operations. It is truly a multi-function solution that satisfies the needs of content management, IoT applications and general communications. Operations are fully compliant with standard technical recommendations.
Altran’s Agile Datacenter Network offering is an innovative approach for deploying and managing datacenter networks. Our offering brings in technology and services that drive specific business value for our customers
We help clients develop a new class of devices and applications are emerging that will generate unprecedented demand for mobile computing power and real-time exchange. Through our experience design services we help clients look past the limits of device processing and the latency of cloud computing, and instead bring compute power closer to the user — to the edge of the internet, the network operators' unique domain.
