Anuta ATOM Overview

Anuta ATOM platform provides comprehensive end-to-end network automation, network monitoring, configuration and compliance management, network orchestration, and closed-loop automation for multi-domain and multi-vendor networks.

Some key features of the Anuta ATOM platform include:

Vendor Agnostic Platform: Anuta ATOM supports 45+ vendors across 150+ platforms. All major vendors, including Cisco, Juniper, Arista, F5, and others, are supported. Anuta ATOM provides SDK, which enables customers, and partners to develop device models not supported by ATOM currently.

Automated Device onboarding: Network devices can be onboarded on ATOM either manually or automatically through seed and sweep mechanisms. ATOM also provides zero-touch provisioning through DHCP or PnP. Once onboarded, ATOM provides a complete device lifecycle and inventory management.

Configuration & Compliance management: Upon onboarding the devices, ATOM provides configuration management and automated compliance enforcement. ATOM periodically archives and versions device configurations. Any out-of-band changes are detected, notified, and remediated on approval. ATOM’s compliance policy builder enables the administrator to define and standardize configurations. Any violation of baseline behavior triggers automated remediation to fix non-compliance.

Service Orchestration: ATOM enables Service lifecycle management and service orchestration. L2VPN, L3VPN, Application delivery, or any custom service can be modeled and ordered using the ATOM platform.

Low Code Workflow Automation: ATOM provides an intuitive drag & drop framework to develop automation for even the most complex of workflows such as software upgrades, Device RMA, network migration, troubleshooting, and diagnostic scenarios.

Performance & Network Health Monitoring: Anuta ATOM provides a single-pane-of-glass to monitor the entire network. ATOM can collect necessary device and network data through SNMP, SNMP Trap, Syslog, and streaming telemetry mechanisms. The collected data can be visualized through out-of-box and custom charts. It can also be shared with external databases.

Alert Routing & Suppression: ATOM supports alert deduplication, alert grouping, alert suppression, and alert routing. ATOM allows grouping of similar alerts into a single notification. In large outages, when many systems fail simultaneously, numerous alerts are triggered. Alert Manager in ATOM can be configured to group alerts by their cluster or alert name to send a single compact notification for all similar alerts.

Closed-Loop Automation: ATOM enables closed-loop automation by relaying the feedback from the monitoring platform to the automation platform. Thresholds and alerts can be set for network events. On breach of thresholds, the ATOM platform can automatically trigger remediation workflows based on approval from the network administrator.

APIs and Integrations: ATOM is an Open and API-driven platform. All operations in ATOM can be triggered through the ATOM’s self-service portal or APIs by northbound solutions such as OSS/BSS, ITSM, Ticketing/Billing, etc. ATOM workflow automation can invoke APIs from external entities such as ServiceNow, Jira, IPAM, and others.

RBAC & Multi-Tenancy: ATOM Supports Role-based access control and multi-tenancy, which will allow customizing privileges to various functions in ATOM. Workflow automation also supports similar access control rules where the workflows created by one user will not be seen by another unless explicitly assigned to them. RBAC policies also offer control over the execution of workflows.

Massively Scalable: ATOM platform is built on the latest technologies. It is a microservices-based stateless platform that can scale horizontally to support thousands of devices with high throughput and low-latency. ATOM is componentized and enables the deployment of selected components essential for desired functionality.

HA & Full redundancy: ATOM Software is microservices-based, containerized, and runs on the Kubernetes platform. All components of ATOM, except for databases, are stateless. Databases contain state information and are in HA. ATOM components support the active-active cluster model.
