Network Object ManagerA Single Source of Truth for Your Network Automation
Conquering Limitations of Siloed Data to Enable Zero-Touch Operations
For reaping the benefits of network automation in complex IT infrastructures hindered by siloed and inaccurate data, your IT team needs trusted, shared repositories.
EfficientIP Network Object Manager (NOM) allows you to construct a Single Source of Truth repository of network objects which can be used to model and visualize any network topology. NOM provides a comprehensive, reliable, open inventory to serve as the foundation of any network automation, helping your DevOps, NetSecOps, and CloudOps on their path towards zero-touch operations.
Single Source of Truth Repository: Your foundation for Modeling and Automation
NOM repository delivers enterprise-wide and accurate visibility of all physical and virtual network objects types including switches, routers, servers, PCs, printers, IP phones, IoT, VMs and containers, as well as their associated metadata including name, interface type, OS, Cloud ID, CPU, RAM… to name a few.
As an open repository, NOM can be used to interconnect with and unify existing IT repositories and databases in a single Source of Truth. Its data can also be enriched with information from the EfficientIP Cloud Observer discovery tool.
Feed Network Automation for Operational Efficiency and Deployment Consistency Control
Being fully integrated into SOLIDserver Solutions, NOM data and metadata bring unparalleled ability to feed through open APIs the lifecycle management of network objects in physical, virtual and cloud environments.
You can easily connect NOM with your ecosystem such as business or IT applications and tools, for streamlining your automation processes, saving time and improving operational efficiency.
Model and Visualize Your Network Topology for Resource Planning and Provisioning
Using a web-based intuitive user interface, Network Object Manager enables your IT staff to design and visualize any network topology, thus dramatically speeding up the process of resource planning, provisioning and quality assurance. Even connections between different network objects can be defined and visualized.
Network objects can be organized by class, metadata and naming convention, helping enforce company policies. Existing infrastructure can be leveraged, allowing you to maximize your investments. And importantly, you are able to better manage recurrent costs by anticipating your connectivity and capacity requirements.
Compare Your Planned Topology with the Actual Network to Identify Differences
Using the data brought by Cloud Observer on any provisioned cloud instances, you can easily compare against the network topology planned and defined in the NOM repository, to identify differences and hence accelerate any decision to remedy as need be.
Thanks to SOLIDserver’s intelligent technology, your entire network now becomes truly visible and easier to analyze.
