Tail-f Systems Brings Carrier-grade Network Management and OpenSAF HA Middleware Closer Together


STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – April 27, 2011 – Tail-f Systems, the leading provider of configuration management software for networking equipment and network management systems, today announced its OpenSAF TailPack enabling the integration of carrier-grade management with high availability (HA) middleware in less time and with reduced risk. 


The OpenSAF TailPack is a pre-integration service offered by Tail-f Systems’ Professional Services organization that leverages the power of Tail-f’s ConfD software to help developers manage networking products using an open source HA framework.


“Enabling faster integration between Tail-f Systems’ management technology and OpenSAF HA middleware is a valuable step forward for companies like ours,” said Bryan Bettencourt, Senior Staff Software Engineer, ARRIS. “Tail-f’s ConfD together with the new OpenSAF TailPack is a powerful combination that will help us continue to deliver industry leading solutions.”


Providing sample code for functions like retrieving status information, making configuration changes and invoking administrative actions, the OpenSAF TailPack provides a fast start to developing a fully customized operator interface for high availability systems. TailPacks include source code, documentation, and test examples, reducing development and testing time, minimizing project risk, and decreasing the time needed for integrating third party components.


“As a foundation member of OpenSAF, we are committed to helping our customers benefit from best-in-class management solutions for high availability middleware,” said Fredrik Lundberg, CEO, Tail-f Systems. “This new TailPack will help our customers bring new products to market faster and with less risk.”
