Fabric Services System
Bring intent-based automation to every phase of your data center switching fabric operations
Get the architecture and tools you need to automate data center switching fabrics
Our Fabric Services System lets you support intent-based network automation at scale for all phases of your data center fabric operations, from Day 0 design to Day 1 deployment and Day 2+ configuration, operation, measurement and analysis.
A key component of our Data Center Switching Fabric solution, the Fabric Services System complements and extends our Service Router Linux (SR Linux) network operating system (NOS). It enables you to support true lifecycle management for your data center fabrics.
The Fabric Services System implements a modern architecture based on an open Kubernetes foundation combined with intent-based, distributed microservices and cloud-native approaches. It features the Fabric Services System digital sandbox, an operations tool that enables you to emulate a data center fabric, application workloads and external Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) speakers.
Why use the Fabric Services System to operate your data center network?
Automate all phases of data center network operations with a scalable, distributed automation and operations toolkit.
Simplify the integration of networking with DevOps practises using tools that break down organizational silos.
Manage workloads faster
Build certified fabric designs and automate EVPN configuration with a system that represents fabric intent as code.
Enable your NetOps teams to test and validate changes before applying them to the production network.
Improve fabric observability
Use comprehensive telemetry and log data to monitor and gain deep insights into east–west and north–south traffic.
Streamline fabric operations
Take advantage of operational views that let users quickly debug functional or performance issues or perform accurate capacity planning actions.
Support flexible fabric integrations
Integrate in-house operational tools, orchestration systems and cloud environments with a cloud-native approach.
