Companies of all sizes are realizing the increasingly important role digital plays in the enablement of their employees, sales teams and customers.

Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
Self-service is an advanced element of private cloud environments that improves management efficiency and business agility, as well as lowering operating expenses. A self-service environment streamlines the interaction between users and the IT department. It empowers internal consumers of IT services to request and receive appropriately configured resources on demand with minimal IT intervention. NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, the NetApp Management SDK with open APIs, and key ecosystem partnerships enable enterprises to easily integrate their orchestration solutions and custom management tools with the NetApp storage service catalog for automated storage provisioning and protection. Customers can thereby create a self-service, web-based portal that efficiently delivers IT as a service to virtualization administrators, application administrators, and users, while enabling IT staff to focus on higher value activities.
