ConfD radically reduces the time and resources needed to develop network management applications, helping developers meet critical market deadlines.
Traditional agents are protocol centric and are limited in ability to extend to new features. In ConfD, key management interfaces are automatically rendered from a single data model.

The Tail-f approach separates the management interfaces to the back-end system.
