Session 3

Own Your Data Plane in Public Clouds with Aviatrix for Greater Visibility and Control

As enterprises transition to the cloud, many encounter challenges with the limited visibility and troubleshooting capabilities native cloud constructs provide. Unlike physical data centers that are owned and managed by each individual enterprise, cloud service providers are multi-tenant by nature; this results in limited access to the underlying data plane for visibility, analytics, and troubleshooting. Learn how Aviatrix provides a single tenant experience in a multi-tenant cloud environment by allowing customers to own and manage their own data plane across regions and across different cloud service providers. Through Aviatrix’s tight integration with the VM-Series from Palo Alto Networks, we will also be discussing how Aviatrix can orchestrate the insertion of the VM-Series in a simple and consistent manner. We will cover what a secure cloud network is with Aviatrix and how its position in an enterprise provides unique capabilities that were not possible with traditional data center architectures.
