NS1, a leader in smart network control solutions, announced the availability of NetBox Cloud in AWS Marketplace, a curated digital catalog that customers can use to find, buy, deploy and manage third-party software, data and services to build solutions and run their businesses on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
AWS customers can use the fully supported and hosted software as a service (SaaS) version of the NetBox open-source solution to simplify their path to network automation by building a comprehensive network source of truth (NSoT) without the challenges of management overhead.
“AWS customers can now use NetBox Cloud to build an authoritative inventory of every physical and virtual network asset as the first step toward network automation,” said Bill Lapcevic, SVP of business development at NS1. “Accomplishing new infrastructure and application initiatives often requires networks to evolve and adapt at a pace that is prone to errors if approached manually, requiring network automation. Network automation architectures rely on a network source of truth as a central view into the intended state of the network, and NS1’s advanced infrastructure, support, and experience with NetBox Cloud make leveraging a NSoT less expensive and easier than ever.”
Thousands of companies rely on NetBox to define and understand the state of their network infrastructure. With this information, companies can push out configurations and monitor changes, thanks to simple API-driven integrations with other network automation and monitoring tools like Ansible and Terraform. NetBox Cloud adds critical enterprise features and services including support, an easy upgrade process, single sign-on, performance autoscaling, and access to test environments.
As network complexity increases, manually managing infrastructure and handling traffic at scale become infeasible. NS1’s solutions, including NetBox Cloud, support the transition to network automation at scale. The firm’s Managed DNS and Traffic Steering solutions were listed in AWS Marketplace earlier this year. The offerings help AWS customers optimize network performance and resilience, including unique features like Dedicated DNS, a fully independent secondary DNS network supervised through the same portal as Managed DNS.
