Description

Speaker: Nick Martin (Cisco Systems) As Data Centre operations teams look to improve the efficiency of provisioning and managing the physical and virtual infrastructure they have begun to apply the tools and approaches they have leveraged for server management to the network. Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure uses a policy driven approach to provide an integrated overlay delivering a natural abstraction between application design, and infrastructure deployment. This new paradigm for networking overcomes silos, drastically reducing cost and complexity. To put it simply: 1) Cisco ACI is a new network platform 2) we have a new management model based on (group) policy 3) this simplifies things and thus saves money.
