Who is Apstra?
Apstra® was founded to pioneer and enable the Self-Operating Network,™ a network that configures itself, fixes itself and defends itself. The company is redefining network operations and economics to make the network a CIO’s most valuable asset to address business velocity. The Apstra Operating System™ (AOS) provides the only vendor-agnostic, intent-based “command and control” system delivering agility and massive TCO savings through automation of network operations.
What is AOS and how does it benefits organizations?
The Apstra Operating System (AOS) is a vendor-agnostic distributed operating system for the data center network that enables business agility, dramatically scales operational efficiency, and reduces downtime.
The Apstra Operating System (AOS) automates the entire lifecycle of network infrastructure and services. Starting with customer-declared statements of intent, AOS automates the various processes involved in designing and deploying network configurations, and ensuring that the network is always “ready for business” through real-time telemetry and analytics that provide continuous validation.
