FREMONT, CA: The expanding needs to react to changes quickly and to stay relevant in the aggressive market; organizations are concentrating more on computerization now. Many service providers have changed to DevOps practices to make a culture of automation.
Recently, Cisco Systems, in an attempt to diminish the communication gap between networking professionals and the remaining IT operations team, is building up an application-specific integrated chip (ASIC). The chip would deal with all the network functions of an organization that has utilized DevOps practices. DevOps can be firmly associated with software development and IT.
Networks these days are turning out to be more software-driven, which makes DevOps a useful asset to manage them. The DevOps is intended to build an efficient network where administrators can exploit the knowledge of an expert in a particular system. DevOps saves time and cost, and delivers a superior quality of product to the end-user.
To decrease the network latency, Cisco is urging the engineers to deploy their applications directly on the switches and switches, which incorporate general-purpose processors. The custom ASICs planned by Cisco handle the network functions too. Network latency is an issue which developers face while attempting to deploy their application on distributed computing environments like IoT.
Cisco is attempting to pull in those developers as it can deal with the network latency. Cisco, as of now, professes to have more than 500,000 developers taking an interest in DevNet. Cisco is additionally trying to support DevOps groups, which are hesitant to surrender their legacy command-line interfaces so their systems networking environments could be modernized. Cisco additionally intends to embrace microservices and move away from the customary monolithic services. Monolithic services will make it conceivable to invoke network services on an increasingly granular level.
