Discover Cloud Networks

The diverse surface area of the cloud requires a different approach to networking. Cloud networks must support a fluid landscape of infrastructure, platforms, and SaaS end-points. Without cloud fluency as a primary architectural principle the network will inhibit business priorities: growth, competitive responsiveness, agility, provider diversity.   


Prosimo orchestrates cloud native network resources across applications, platforms, regions, and cloud providers. 

It’s tight coupling with cloud native network resources vastly simplifies:

  • Cost Control
  • Interconnecting Existing Brownfield Deployments
  • Rationalizing and Security App Diversity

With Prosimo’s Resource Discovery capability, operators onboard VPCs/VNets and subnets to the platform. Once the desired cloud account is selected, Prosimo takes care of automatically discovering the VPCs/VNets and associated subnets across the accounts associated regions. Simply choose the specific Subnets/VPCs/VNets you wish to onboard and Prosimo will automatically populate the essential details required for the successful onboarding of the selected networks.

Introducing Cloud Network Discovery

1. On-board Cloud Accounts

On-boarding a Cloud refers to the association of a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) Account with the Prosimo platform. Prosimo orchestrates the cloud providers network resources and hence must communicate with the providers APIs. Associating an account facilitates the necessary cloud management communication required to build multi-cloud, multi-platform networks in minutes.

2. Discover Networks

With Cloud On-boarding and the Deployment of a Network Edge complete, Prosimo is able to discover all networks associated with the on-boarded cloud accounts.

3. Deploy Prosimo Edges

Prosimo Edge’s perform the orchestration of cloud native networking resources. A Prosimo Edge is deployed per-region and manages all VPC/Vnet network resource management for its cloud region deployment. Unlike with overlay network architecture, virtual devices do not need to be deployed per-VPC or per-platform.


4. On-board Cloud Networks

With Cloud On-boarding and the Deployment of a Network Edge complete, Prosimo is able to on-board networks associated with the on-boarded cloud accounts.

Prosimo’s discovery-led architecture seamlessly onboards networks for building connectivity between VPCs and VNets across regions and clouds. On-boarding is performed via a simple click-through process, whereby the Prosimo platform discovers the VPC/Vnet that you want to onboard to the Prosimo fabric.
