Apstra Intros Network Automation OpEx Calculator

Apstra just released a Network Automation OpEx calculator that provides a way to measure potential savings from deploying Apstra. The calculator guides people through a detailed analysis covering all the steps in designing, building and operating a leaf-spine data center architecture.

In the calculator, you start by entering the day rate of a systems engineer and project manager. From there you fill out scope and design requirements – from there, implementation and testing specs and finally, operations.

The calculator then shows the difference between the “existing” approach and using Apstra.

Savings calculators are a good way to sell solutions – they give cover to the decision-maker(s) in an organization looking to implement a solution.

According to the company, this is how the OpEx savings breakdown. Apstra customers achieve 23.94% savings for Scoping requirements, a 72.99% savings at the Design stage, 82.26% savings during Implementation and Test, and 75.00% during on-going Operations.

“What is especially significant is that the bigger the installation, the bigger the savings,” said Sean Hafeez, Director of Business Development, APAC at Apstra. “Without Intent-Based Networking, doubling the number of switches almost doubles the amount of labor for configuration and verification. But with Intent-Based Networking automation, it makes little difference whether you are dealing with 10, 100, or a thousand switches.”
