Innovation is in BlueCat Networks’ DNA, and with Triton, our new network orchestration platform, we have once again redefined what is possible for IP Address Management
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, today announced the availability of Triton, a new software platform that delivers process orchestration and efficient workflow to network operations. Triton goes beyond the simple automation of network changes by orchestrating the interactions between people, processes and best-of-breed tools and applications. By orchestrating end-to-end processes and workflow, Triton allows organizations to complete critical network requests such as spinning up a new virtual machine or onboarding a device in a matter of minutes. With Triton, organizations can improve SLAs and better respond to changing business needs and rising expectations for connectivity.
“Innovation is in BlueCat Networks’ DNA, and with Triton, our new network orchestration platform, we have once again redefined what is possible for IP Address Management,” said
Brad Micklea, Vice President of Product Management, BlueCat Networks. “Cloud, virtualization and the explosive growth of mobile devices are putting a heavy demand on the network. IT staff struggle to manage an ever-growing number of provisioning requests that today require significant time and manual effort. The challenge is that to complete the provisioning, it is not enough to simply handle the network changes. These changes need to be integrated with best-of-breed ticketing, asset management and security systems as well, making processes and approvals difficult to coordinate. Triton orchestrates and simplifies the complexity behind everyday requests and ensures that network operations can move at the speed of business.”
PCN, a BlueCat Networks certified professional services organization and reseller that provides world-class managed services for enterprise DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI), is an early adopter of Triton. “For us, having the power of DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management connected to a true network orchestration product gives us everything we need to efficiently make IT changes for our customers’ businesses in a unified, easy-to-use package,” said Dave Champagne, DDI Practice Manager, PCN. “With BlueCat Networks’ Triton and Proteus solutions, we will be able to realize a significant reduction in the time it takes to provision servers and dynamically expand or contract applications. This is critical as we strive to provide market-leading SLAs to our clients.”
With Triton, organizations are able to build true IT process automation, which Gartner1 defines as:
- A tool workflow designer provides a mechanism to document the process workflow.
- The automation engine at the heart of the tool.
- An integration and visualization framework provides a dashboard for debugging and monitoring the execution of the workflow(s) with reporting capabilities as well. Additionally, the framework provides connectors or adaptors that enable tool-to-tool integration needed for both cross-domain workflows.
Triton delivers these key functional elements in a simple and extensible platform that is focused on network operations and automating the DNS, DHCP and IPAM functions that are critical to strategic IT initiatives from DevOps to virtualization, cloud and BYOD. Unlike other solutions that force users to adapt to their way of doing things, Triton processes can be tailored to any organization and can then be rolled out either as fully automated workflows or leverage Triton’s built-in IT self-service Web portal to make it easy for end users to request changes or interact with the processes. The workflow and processes defined by Triton can also be modified on-the-fly for greater flexibility and agility.
