Cloudify

Cloudify is open source cloud management and network orchestration software used by large telecoms and Tier 1 network operators for cloud automation and network functions virtualization (NFV).

Cloudify has been named to the shortlists of two major telecom awards programs. The Global Telecoms Awards for 2017 has shortlisted Cloudify for its “Ground-breaking Virtualization Initiative” award. In addition, the Network Transformation Awards to be presented at the SDN NFV World Congress has shortlisted Cloudify for highest honors in the category of “Cloud & Carrier Service: Best vCPE/uCPE Enterprise Service.”

Open vCPE—A Groundbreaking Initiative

In March of this year, Cloudify launched an Open vCPE solution which introduced an orchestration-first approach to NFV adoption. The orchestration-first approach addresses one of the biggest challenges for providers—integrating with existing networks.

To date, most approaches to NFV adoption follow a process in which a new, virtual infrastructure is built from the ground up to replace the existing physical network functions. Then, virtualized network functions are deployed atop the new infrastructure. Finally, the critical components of orchestration and automation are added prior to launching the new NFV services. This process typically takes 12-18 months and involves multiple cycles of vendor selection, internal training and POCs.

In contrast, Cloudify’s orchestration-first approach focuses on designing and deploying the NFV orchestration and automation capabilities first atop the company’s existing network infrastructure (physical or virtual). New virtualized network services can then be deployed in days or weeks rather than months, which translates to significant cost-savings and additional revenue earnings.
