Aptira & Cloudify
Bridging the Networking World & IT through Orchestration
Aptira and Cloudify have been partnering to deliver solutions for open infrastructure, SDN, NFV and ONAP for leading Telcos & Enterprises in the region.
Cloudify is an orchestration engine that is entirely pluggable. It can control any app, infrastructure, cloud IaaS, PaaS, SaaS or COE that provides an API or machine readable interface. Cloudify is used model based orchestration: the human designer decides what is needed and Cloudify automates the deployment of the design onto/into the infrastructure/cloud. They also support lots of stuff out of the box, and support the TOSCA model. TOSCA is the Topology Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications. Simply put, TOSCA offers a standardized way to describe applications as well as its dependencies and supporting cloud infrastructure. With this method of modeling applications, TOSCA enables users to deploy and orchestrate the lifecycle of applications across multiple clouds (and other environments).
Aptira has been delivering multi-cloud solutions based on Cloudify’s orchestration platform, including deep expertise around OpenStack and open networking projects, being a joint-member with Cloudify in the Linux Foundation Networking project, along with a community leader around OpenStack in their territory.
