ACI webinar Series.jpg

 

This week we're excited to have Ramses Smeyers (Principle Engineer) to give you a basic introduction into Ansible and the ACI automation use-case. Once understood, we will see how to apply this automation language on ACI to automate day-2 operations such as access polices and tenants creation. To top it off, we will end with an example use-case allowing you to automate an entire ACI fabric.

This topic is a chance to discuss more about VPC configuration, best practices and troubleshooting. vPC is a virtualization technology that presents both Cisco Nexus family paired devices as a unique Layer 2 logical node to access layer devices or endpoints. A virtual port channel (vPC) allows links that are physically connected to two different Cisco Nexus devices to appear as a single port channel to a third device. The third device can be a switch, server, or any other networking device that supports link aggregation technology. A vPC can provide Layer 2 multipathing, which allows you to create redundancy by increasing bandwidth, enabling multiple parallel paths between nodes and load-balancing traffic where alternative paths exist.

This session provides an opportunity to learn and ask questions about Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches and FabricPath technology.

 
Cisco Fabricpath technology on the Nexus 7000 switches introduces new capabilities and design options that allow network operators to create Ethernet fabrics that maximize bandwidth availability, provide design flexibility, and simplify and cost-reduce network and application deployment and operation. Fabricpath leverages many of the best characteristics of traditional Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies, combining them into a new control-plane and data-plane implementation that combines the plug-and-play deployment model of a bridge Spanning Tree environment with the stability, re-convergence characteristics, and ability to leverage multiple parallel paths typical of a Layer 3 routed environment. The result is a scalable, flexible, and highly-available Ethernet fabric suitable for the most demanding Data Center environments.

Welcome to this Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation.  This is an opportunity to learn and any ask questions aboutCisco Data Center Overlays with focus on VXLAN (Virtual Extensible Local Area Network) to Vishal Mehta  and Pranav Doshi.

Ask questions from Tuesday October 20, to Friday October 30, 2015

 In the modern data center, traditional technologies are limiting the speed, flexibility, scalability, and manageability of application deployments. There is emerging interest in the industry in overlay technologies (such as MPLS, VXLAN, LISP...) which may address some of these challenges. This session will discuss the latest trend in Overlay Technologies and compare each one of the available solutions in terms of deployment, benefits and challenges.
