Showcase: Managing Your Network by Intentions • Multi-vendor support: PDAS uses a device driver model that allows equipment from any vendor to be included in the live digital twin. Using patented auto-discovery technology that leverages all native interfaces to equipment, PDAS maintains an accurate representation of the entire network, from the cloud to the edge, and everything in between. Ultimately, NetBrain PDAS enables network operations teams to operate more efficiently through automation and by leveraging the knowledge of all their peers, which builds a growing knowledge base for the company that persists regardless of which resources are present at any time within the organization globally. Forward Looking NetOps Strategies Forward-looking IT professionals are elevating their network operations thought process from one that views the network as a general-purpose utility that should be able support anything (as was commonplace in the 1990s) to one of detailed understanding of each of the specific needs of enterprise applications, their architectures, and all of the decomposed microservices that span the hybrid infrastructure. This goes far beyond monitoring device health and allows the tightest alignment of the network and the business. By focusing on IT service delivery, network operations can transform from a tactical and chaotic function, with lots of variability and a never-ending list of challenges, to a strategic function that delivers IT services based upon a plan. The plan can quantify and qualify the network with operational efficiencies at the forefront of the discussion. This provides a more suitable way to address risk profiles as well as the cost structures required to deliver each service. NetBrain understands the challenges of supporting distributed application environments and built PDAS to provide a simple, intuitive, proactive solution to deliver continuous validation of network and security intents. PDAS enables organizations to prevent application or network outages and service degradations in an ever-changing distributed cloud environment. In the event of a problem or outage, organizations can accelerate remediation efforts by leveraging the shared knowledge of teams who had previously fixed the same or a similar problem, which can be accessed from NetBrain’s Intent Library by anyone.
