Enterprises are experiencing an unrelenting need to accelerate speed, flexibility, security and scale across increasingly complex data centers and multi-cloud environments. They're shifting to strategies driven by applications running multiple instances within these multi-clouds – and looking to simplify the management and scalability of these environments. By automating basic IT operations with a centralized and consistent policy across multiple data centers and geographies, customers can more easily and securely move and manage workloads with a single pane of glass.
Join us to see why a sophisticated Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution is no longer a “good to have” data center requirement – it’s now the underpinning for a successful, profitable business. We'll learn how ACI comprehensively supports the four pillars of a successful SDN solution – Performance, Availability, Security and Automation. We'll then take a look at the ACI object model, and how the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) provides a policy-driven approach to managing those objects through a single REST API that can use both XML and JSON formats. In closing, we'll show how you can have the flexibility to run applications across your own private clouds – as well as public clouds of your choice – while maintaining consistent network policies across an entire multi-cloud domain.
