Lyatiss Targets Application-defined Networking

Lyatiss, a start-up based in Mountain View, California with R&D in Lyon, France, unveiled its CloudWeaver network intelligence tool for optimizing application performance in public clouds.

The Lyatiss CloudWeaver is an orchestration tool that gathers intelligence on cloud performance and network resources to help users optimize their application performance.  Lyatiss is currently launching a public beta for Amazon Web Services users.

Lyattis sees a growing need for understanding and controlling the rapidly growing pool of virtualized network resources. Application-defined networking (ADN) aims to accelerate and streamline movement of data throughout the entire virtual infrastructure of each application.  Unlike SDN, which focuses on controlling the forwarding of individual packets within the network infrastructure, ADN orchestrates application flows – or the actual sequences of information exchanged. Lyattis levergages APIs so that application delivery and performance across public and private cloud networks are optimized, without compromising application portability or security.

"As cloud applications incorporate rich services – video, gaming, real-time collaboration and big data – businesses deploying these mission-critical applications will run into a variety of issues, including unpredictable latencies and potentially disastrous cascading effects from bottlenecks, failures and cloud outages. In addition, they'll experience wasted capacity and spiraling costs resulting from overprovisioning," said Pascale Vicat-Blanc, CEO of Lyatiss. "Software defined networking (SDN) is not sufficient to address the predictability and performance issues encountered in current cloud applications, nor can it meet the need for infrastructure differentiation and software control. Instead, evolving to a complementary ADN solution, like CloudWeaver, will be required."

Some key features of Lyatiss CloudWeaver:

•  Map.  Users can see where their virtual resources are located and how they are organized, how devices are talking to each other, and where hot spots and bottlenecks are being built up.

•  Build. Users can locate resources by selecting a provider and a region, provision and configure network services, interconnect easily and orchestrate heterogeneous resources. As a result, users can optimize and accelerate their cloud sourcing and avoid over or under-provisioning, as well as misconfigurations.

•  Operate. Users can have a better understanding of end-to-end performance and follow up on activities in terms of throughput and latency, and set up alerts to signal failures and path capacity limitations.

•  Analyze. Users can determine if and where the cloud network is inadequately provisioned or congested, if resources are properly located and configured, if jobs are well placed, and identify which component is responsible for increased latency. CloudWeaver also can anticipate problems, such as bottlenecks or cascading effect of undetected failures.

•  Fix. Users can fix failures, as well as provisioning or configuration issues, in minutes and activate the appropriate remediation workflows in a single click.

•    Program. Users can automatically capture the cloud network code in an XML-based virtual infrastructure description language (VXDL) so they can reuse or modify it offline. CloudWeaver also enables users to intuitively define minimum and maximum performance standards, program and enforce action plans for when those standards are not met.
