Apstra Introduces the First Universal ZTP server for Multi-Vendor Data Center Networks

OCP US SUMMIT 2017 – Santa Clara, CA – March 8, 2017 – The networking community has long needed a vendor-agnostic approach to bootstrapping a multi-vendor network. Apstra®, Inc. today launched its community initiative and announced its first open source project: Aeon-ZTPS. Apstra will be demonstrating the universal Zero-Touch Provisioning Server (ZTPS) and the Apstra Operating System™(AOS) at the Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit, March 8-9, 2017 in Santa Clara, CA.

“Aeon-ZTPS is an easy, low-risk approach to automate the drudgery of bootstrapping different vendor devices. It gives you the confidence in the journey to decouple networking tasks from underlying device specificity. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the networking community with Aeon-ZTPS, our first open source project.  We look forward to growing this project, the first of more to come this year,” said Jeremy Schulman, Head of Customer Enablement at Apstra.

Apstra developed Aeon-ZTPS to help bootstrap devices as part of its flagship product, AOS, and is releasing it as a stand-alone project in response to customer demand. The Aeon-ZTPS is:

  • Vendor agnostic
  • Extensible to future devices
  • Fast, reliable, and transparent

Learn more about the Aeon-ZTPS project on the Apstra blog or by seeing a demo at the Apstra booth (C31) at the OCP Summit.  Or view videos of an AOS demo from Disaggregate or Networking Field Day.
