After part one of the Open NX-OS DemoFriday series in which Cisco demonstrated how to easily achieve network programmability and automation, Cisco will now take a more granular look at the tools available in Open NX-OS to provide the advanced framework needed for network control and automation. During this demonstration, you will learn:
- NX-API REST and how it exposes functions as a series of objects and their attributes. At its foundation, this provides an architecture for programmability.
- How the NX-Toolkit is actually a set of Python libraries that allows basic configuration of the Cisco Nexus Switch. With this library, users can quickly begin using the REST API and accelerate the learning curve necessary to being using the switch. So, instead of having to manually create the objects, you can use the NX-Toolkit to automatically have objects created. All you need to do is call a function.
- The NX-API capability allows you to send and receive commands over HTTP to a remote switch and get the result of those commands in the JSON format, making it very easy to understand and script.
Join Cisco’s Director to Technical Marketing Ranga Rao and Product Manager Shane Corban for this insightful DemoFriday. If you wish to learn more about the tools in Open NX-OS that will help accelerate the DevOps model approach and respond more quickly to customer demand, this presentation is for you!
