ONUG will demonstrate a multi-domain data virtualization framework at its conference later this week in New York City. The framework, which was developed by ONUG's AIOps for Hybrid Multi-Cloud Working Group, addresses the fundamental challenge of gathering disparate state data spread across multiple domains and providing unified access to normalized data by machine learning and AI tools. The idea is to apply AI to automate performance monitoring to aggregate, normalize and enrich select state data that is sourced from many points across multiple independent domains. “Just like a great wine starts with great grapes, great AIOps starts with great data,” says Nick Lippis, ONUG Co-Chair and Co-Founder. “The ONUG AIOps Working Group is addressin.

The Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) has deployed Pluribus Networks’ Netvisor ONE operating system and Adaptive Cloud Fabric, along with Dell EMC Open Networking hardware, as part of a multi-site network modernization project. The installation creates an SDN-controlled network fabric that federates together a large number of geographically distributed switches to appear as one logical switch, radically simplifying network operations. Pluribus said its controllerless architecture leverages the processing power inside the switches that are already deployed, distributing intelligence to every switch in the network. This distributed approach to automation lowers costs by eliminating the expense of multiple controllers while improving perfor.
