Infrastructure programmability in the data center is a big deal as it drives automation and efficiency which, in turn, drives speed – an obvious prerequisite for the success of just about any business dealing with digital disruption. In part 1 of Cisco’s Open NX-OS series, we touched on the programmability and automation capabilities of Open NX-OS, and how it drives efficient IT operations. In part 2 — taking place on September 25th — will demonstrate the NX-API REST (Object Model), NX-Tool kit and more of NX-API, a framework and approach that enabled DevOps teams to respond more quickly to business demands.
In part 3, Cisco will demonstrate RPM Package Management/Patching and KStack allowing third party Linux networking applications to run seamlessly with NX-OS. We’ll also walk through in detail how integrating configuration management tools, whether agentless like Ansible, or with agents like Puppet Labs and Chef, enables the automation of Day 0, 1, and 2 operations:
- Day 0: Automating the bring-up of new devices with minimal human intervention
- Day 1: Configuring and operating the automation of all basic network operations to remove human error and accelerate service deployment and validation
- Day 2: Optimizing network service resources
The result is greater collaboration within DevOps teams and the acceleration of app deployment.
Register today for Cisco‘s third installment of their Open NX-OS DemoFriday series on October 9th at 10:00am PT.
If you can’t make it to the live event, register anyway. We’ll notify you once the assets are available to watch at your own convenience.
