FREMONT, CA – Digitalization is revolutionizing the operations of organizations across various sectors. Organizations are leveraging emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), cloud computing, and the internet of things (IoT) to promote enhanced productivity and efficiency. However, the data centers have been rather slow in embracing digital transformation.

IT departments of organizations are facing constant pressure to incorporate the new digital transformation initiatives and enhance their capabilities. The modernization of data centers is critical for the advancement of organizations since they serve as the digital nervous system of organizations. To achieve this, enterprises are turning their gaze toward data center automation. Enterprises such as Extreme Networks are aiding organizations in their automation journey, enabling them to accelerate their data center operations. The Extreme Fabric Automation, also known as Extreme Embedded Fabric Automation, is a robust and unique solution which has enabled IT departments to simplify and streamline their data center fabric operations.

Along with automation, it is high time for IT departments to employ DevOps/NetOps. It will enable organizations to streamline various aspects of their data centers. Agility and speed serve as cornerstones for data center automation. However, a robust and versatile organizational structure is also essential for a seamless transformation.

Enterprises can leverage the automation services of Extreme Networks to customize their data center operations. It will enable them to automate a manual process, thus streamlining workflow. Network connectivity can be provisioned during the development of the virtual machine, and the workflows can be integrated accordingly based on the configuration of load balancers, firewalls, and other services required for application rollout.

Organizations should first target areas which would yield most productivity if automated. The building block approach will facilitate a seamless transition, producing desirable outcomes in a short period. Instead of creating a massive workflow, organizations can leverage smaller workflows to form a chain of actions targeting specific tasks, such as provisioning VLAN, creating default gateways, and building port channels.

The Extreme Fabric Automation will enable network administrators to eliminate their manual configuration tasks and provide services across the fabric for day-to-day operations, while at the same time maintaining cost-effectiveness and efficiency. It also allows them to configure and create a fabric from a single entry point. Extreme Fabric Automation provides one of the most efficient means of data center automation.
