Minimize Network Downtime

No performance degradation or downtime

Network operations teams are under pressure to adhere to a  policy of the “five nines” (99.999%) service-level agreement (SLA). Network downtime can be devastating to the service providers’ business. Even a brief amount of downtime can lead to lost revenue, damaged reputation, legal liability, and brand dilution from a business perspective.

DriveNets Network Cloud architecture inherently enables high availability in software and hardware. On the hardware level, it includes built-in redundancies for any hardware element; if any component
fails, the network cluster can continue to operate seamlessly. On the software level, DriveNets Network Operation System (DNOS) combines classic router high-availability features, such as non-stop routing (NSR)/non-stop forwarding (NSF), with its cloud-native advantage of each microservice backed by another. Running every function on a dedicated container isolates each function and minimizes blast radius, so that a failure in one service will not affect the operation of other services on the shared infrastructure. Using a virtualization layer, it is possible to scale up the data plane by just adding more white boxes to the same logical network element, with no performance degradation or downtime.
