Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)
ACI: Agile, Open, and Secure
IT departments and lines of business are looking at cloud automation tools and software defined networking (SDN) architectures to:
• Accelerate application delivery
• Reduce operating costs (1:22 min) Video
• Greatly increase business agility
Cisco ACI is a comprehensive SDN architecture. This policy-based automation solution supports a business-relevant application policy language, greater scalability through a distributed enforcement system, and greater network visibility. These benefits are achieved through the integration of physical and virtual environments under one policy model for networks, servers, storage, services, and security.
Through Cisco ACI, customers are reducing application deployment times from weeks to minutes. It also dramatically improves IT alignment with business objectives and policy requirements.
Cisco ACI is built on:
• The Application Centric Policy (based on Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller or APIC)
ACI provides a network that is deployed, monitored, and managed in a way that benefits different teams in the IT organization including SDN Network, Cloud and DevOps, and Security. It supports rapid application change by reducing complexity with a common policy framework that can automate provisioning and resource management.
