AlefEdge, Netris work on automating network services for enterprises at mobile edge

Edge Internet leader AlefEdge and automatic netops platform Netris have announced a partnership to provide enterprises and application developers a platform with an automated service for connecting to Alef’s compute and delivery network EdgeNet. EdgeNet is based on Alef’s Software-Defined Mobile Edge (SD-ME) platform.

“Enterprises considering 5G-style Edge services are looking for simplicity and the most inexpensive and efficient route to scalability—without limiting performance and security,” explains AlefEdge Founder and CEO Ganesh Sundaram. “With Netris providing networking, load balancing and security to support an Edge cloud, our partnership illustrates another example of why Edge is the new Cloud. Users and developers now have access to another valuable tool to build and manage their applications and services.”

AlefEdge’s EdgeNet is a platform-as-a-service designed to enable systems integrators, developers and value-added resellers to build 5G-like applications and services over contemporary networks, and to enable enterprises to adopt them easily. Scaled across thousands of locations, EdgeNet accelerates the digital transformation for enterprises through Open APIs, automation and quickly connecting application developers and network programmers to the Edge through Alef’s SD-ME platform.

“Managing networks is challenging and time intensive,” adds Netris CEO Alex Saroyan. “Enterprises seeking the benefits of the Edge cloud only want to worry about how their application and services are interconnected, not the network implementation details. By handling implementation and automatic configuration, our software and our approach strongly align with Alef’s SD-ME platform, adding more depth to its open and programmable architecture.”

Netris, an automatic network operations platform, makes it possible to operate physical networks like a service. Netris exposes simple, intuitive, cloud-like interfaces (including a GUI, API, Kubernetes CRD) optimized for use by both networking and non-networking people alike. Integrated with Alef’s SD-ME platform, Netris’ interface configures the switching, routing, load balancing and network security based on services and policies defined by the enterprise or application developer. This eliminates the complexities of manual network configuration and orchestration and allows users to deploy infrastructure quickly with minimal investment.
