Micro Focus Network Operations Manager (NOM) Technical Marketing Manager gives a short demonstration of the install of NOM express using the Container Deployment Foundation (CDF) The CDF platform is the foundation required to install all containerized Micro Focus ITOM products.
The CDF platform removes the complexity of containers by handling all installation, orchestration, and management of the core Kubernetes/Docker container infrastructure.
The CDF platform once installed acts as a launch pad to easily install, upgrade, and manage Micro Focus containerized products such as NOM.
Micro Focus NOM provides visibility into your network topology, health, and configuration; optimizes it for performance, capacity, and compliance; and orchestrates the configuration through automation.
NOM brings network engineering and operations teams together as they face a complex network infrastructure, with ever-changing technologies. Unlike using a myriad of disparate management tools, NOM helps network team deal with equipment outages, slowdowns, brownouts, security breaches, resource availability, and access denials.
