New Alliance partnership strengthens trend towards Open Network Automation

The racksnet GmbH from Eschborn and the FNT GmbH from Ellwangen, have now signed an alliance partnership agreement.

In this context, racksnet® has also developed an interface (API) to connect the racksnet® software to FNT’s network management solution. As a result racksnet® extends the existing FNT network documentation and management solution by the rapidly growing area of network automation. Customers can now perform zero touch deployments directly from the FNT Command software. By integrating racksnet® into the planning and workorder control of FNT Command, a perfect orchestration with the physical rollout up to the hardware level is possible in addition to the fully automated configuration loading.

Added value for customers

Both companies are convinced that the joint solution will offer customers enormous added value in terms of time and costs for configuration and management of manufacturer-independent IT networks.

With the automation solution from racksnet®, IT networks can now be analyzed and automatically configured (including IoT networks) independently of hardware manufacturers such as Cisco, HPE, Huawei or Cumulus (Linux) for the first time. Unique in the world is the fact that no scripting (CLI) is required for the configuration of complex infrastructures. All entries are made via a graphical user interface (GUI), drag & drop and numerous templates. Playbooks can also be easily and quickly integrated into the cloud based application of racksnet®.
