SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 17, 2017 -- Quali, the leader in on-demand, self-service IT environments for cloud and DevOps automation, today announced its CloudShell software platform won the 2017 Layer123 Network Transformation Award for “Best New Orchestration & Control.” The judges selected Quali as the category winner “based on CloudShell, which offers networking companies a standardized approach based on TOSCA to orchestrate infrastructure and foster rapid adoption of new technologies such as SDN, NFV and SD-WAN.” The awards were judged independently by a panel of analysts from SDN NFV Congress Analyst Partners and highlight excellence and innovation in delivering the next-generation of NFV and SDN products and services.
In 2017, Quali has already received numerous awards and accolades including a Best of VMworld finalist, a TMC Cloud Computing Security award, a Red Herring North America 100 award, an Enterprise Management Associates Top 3 Winner for DevOps Security, Compliance and Cost Control, an SiTech Top 20 award and was named an NTT DATA Global Open Innovation Business Contest finalist.
“It is great to see several market leaders come together to tackle network transformation in different ways as it is the underpinning of complexity in several data center and cloud environments. This award is special as automation and orchestration of networks and infrastructure at scale in a vendor agnostic way is a big deal and Quali is becoming known to doing just that,” said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Quali. “CloudShell provides companies looking to adopt SDN and NFV technologies a faster and more agile way to test, certify and become DevOps-ready using cloud sandboxes with in built automation and orchestration leading us to be the preferred choice in several large Fortune 500 enterprises as well as Telco and Service Provider datacenters.”
CloudShell comes in two flavors. The CloudShell Pro solution provides full-stack, on-demand hybrid IT environments for several use-cases including rapid replication of SDN/NFV environments.
