5. Enhanced Supportability Functions

  • Syslog Management: Simplify troubleshooting with a programmatic click in UI to collect the logs from devices, supported directly from the topology page.
  • Console Access and Inventory Download: Seamlessly access the console of switches directly from the ONES interface, simplifying device management. Effortlessly download the inventory details of all devices for efficient asset management.

6. Network SLA: Packet Loss & Latency

ONES 2.0 incorporates exclusive back-end support for Network SLA, enabling users to monitor packet loss and latency between any two end-points, measured using ICMP or TCP.

How does NetOps Ready Orchestration enhance enterprise deployments?

Incremental Config

ONES 2.0 adds support for incremental configuration changes. You may now deploy a template to configure your fabric and progressively update VLANs/VNIs across the fabric. This agility makes your network designs more adaptable.

Improved NetOps API

The NetOps API has been improved in 2.0 to accommodate several underlay configurations, including seamless underlay and overlay configuration. This capability not only provides for a broader range of use-cases, but also handles more deployment scenarios such as L2LS, L3LS, and flexible configuration and elastic scaling of spine and leaf nodes

New Use Cases & Features

  • L3 MC-LAG
    While L2 MC-LAG was already supported, ONES 2.0 adds L3 MC-LAG. This provides redundancy, load balancing, scalability, and easier management to meet diverse networking difficulties. Improve your network’s performance and reliability across a wide range of use scenarios.
  • Layer2 Leaf-Spine (L2/L3 Mode)
    Designed to meet the escalating demands of modern data centers, the Layer2 Leaf-Spine architecture offers low-latency, high-bandwidth connectivity with redundancy and efficient traffic distribution.
  • Rack-2-Rack Deployment
    A deployment scenario tailored for fabrics designed with interconnection with leaf devices exclusively, eliminating the need for spines. This streamlined configuration suits specific network architectures. 
  • BGP Peering over LAG
    Enable higher bandwidth, load balancing, and redundancy with this configuration use case. Multiple physical links are aggregated into a logical bundle, known as a PortChannel, optimizing network performance.
  • BGP Peering in MC-LAG Environments
    Configuring BGP peering among MC-LAG peers over the PeerLink ensures seamless operations during uplink failures, while additional interface peering expands network capabilities for optimized traffic handling and heightened resilience.
  • sFlow & DHCP Relay Support
    ONES orchestration tool’s recent support for sFlow and DHCP Relay within the data center, unlock a new level of network management.
  • Console Log
    ONES 2.0 provides administrators with a centralized console plane from which they can monitor network activity for various devices.This is quite useful for tracking the progress of the operation and recording logs in case of problems.
