Our modular architecture provides and end-to-end approach for achieving a simpler, vendor-agnostic, network operation, transitioning from NetDevOps techniques for network automation through the management plane abstraction, towards a fully featured SDN implementation with control plane abstraction.
At the heart of Whitestack Management Plane Abstraction is Ansible, an open-source configuration management tool, with a wide adoption and strong orientation to networking. Its focus is simplicity, extensibility and no dependency on agents. Our supported distribution features additional modules and an API for northbound integration.Get to know Ansible
WhiteNMS features a multi-vendor network management system, able to monitor networking devices, as well as servers, applications, databases and virtualized resources. It provides fault, performance and inventory management, and it is based on OpenNMS.Get to know OpenNMS
Our architecture for SDN and network automation features other modular components as well, that help Carriers transition from a vendor-controlled environment with high TCOs, to a fully automated operation with simple, commodity hardware. These additional components include:
