ProVision 6 Feature Preview – Peering Update!

by | May 1, 2017

With the latest release of ProVision making its way through QA, we wanted to give you a preview of a significant workflow update being rolled out to our Peering Module. Historically, when configuring Peering sessions, you were limited to a single session at a time. With the update you will now be able to configure sessions for a peer ACROSS exchanges.

To see this in action – go to the Communications menu for a given exchange, and the action menu for the Peer should have a “Configure Sessions” option on the menu.

Upon clicking, you should see additional options for configuring sessions across exchanges for the particular peer.

You do have options to select multiple sessions for the peer as well as options for pushing the configuration immediately or at a scheduled time. In the example, you should also see that the window also displays a list of exchanges where you do not have routers, but the peer is present.

We have some more good stuff coming in 6.0 – but wanted to give you an idea of the workflow improvements to make general tasks faster and simpler.

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”

The 6connect executive leadership team and technical team are great to work with and we look forward to many partnered projects to help customers address their Cloud, IoT and Security needs with IPv6. Automation, workflow and orchestration are critical to the success of most of these projects and 6connect is well positioned to help our mutual customers in those areas.”

“A customer is looking for an integrated solution from a single vendor for both IPAM and DNS. Through the 6connect reseller program, Secure64 is able to offer the most secure DNS solutions married to a unique combination of IPAM and resource provisioning that customers want. It’s a marriage made in heaven.”

“A huge benefit of working with the 6connect team is that they devoted a lot of resources to get our products integrated so we had the turnkey solution that we could take to market. It was very easy to work with their team to get product integrated and successfully launched.”
