Comparing and contrasting Cisco ACI and Apstra AOS for DC Management

Data center's are incredibly complex and expensive to operate, network outages are still too frequent, and it's getting harder every day to hire the right talent. Data center network managers, engineers, and operators are dealing with so much more than the underlying hardware, yet for many, data center management still means managing the underlying hardware with an integrated overlay with software-defined networking solutions like Cisco ACI. While this approach has been a sufficient solution for Cisco shops, it's limiting.

In this webinar, we'll compare and contrast Cisco ACI's hardware-centric approach to Apstra's Intent-Based Networking methodology. We'll show you how Apstra's approach to data center infrastructure management reduces the cost of operations, prevent network outages, accelerate time to deployment by augmenting your talent through simplifying your IT infrastructure consumption. Apstra's Intent-Based Networking approach helps you with data center network design, operations, troubleshooting, and security so that applications will run reliability reliably across the data center network.

    DJ Spry, Juniper Networks, Director of Product Management
    Are you ready to reap the benefits of intent-based networking in your data center? Join us to learn how Juniper’s Apstra Solution empowers your IT team to automate the data center network from design to deployment and throughout operations.

    Our Apstra solution is intent-based to maximize network performance, scale, and agility. It applies design templates for everything from cabling to provisioning, so your network continues to operate as it was intended. This intent-based system continually validates changes, alerting your operations teams of brownouts or deviations from your original intent.

    In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate how Juniper’s Apstra Solution can reduce your design and deployment time from months or weeks to days or hours. We’ll drill down into:

    - Templates: Templatize the design, validation, and deployment of your data center network, regardless of hardware vendor.
    - Closed-loop assurance: Use intent-based analytics for a single source of truth from implementation to operations.
    - Intent Time Voyager feature: Roll back your entire network—not just individual devices—to a previous state, regardless of variations in hardware or network operating systems.

  • Find Your Needles. Get Rid of Your Haystack. Automate DC Operations Every Day. Jun 24 2021 5:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Brad Casemore, IDC, Research Vice President, Datacenter Networks and Mansour Karam, Juniper Networks, VP Products
    Guest speaker, Brad Casemore, IDC’s Research Vice President, Datacenter Networks

    There is no denying that automation is the way forward in networking, but it’s about much more than just setting up your network. Where automation can make the most difference is in your everyday operations to monitor, remediate and manage change. Are you looking for better ways to head off problems before they occur, identify root cause, or respond more quickly to change requests? In this webinar, guest speaker, Brad Casemore, IDC’s Research Vice President, Datacenter Networks, and Mansour Karam, VP Products, Juniper Networks will discuss:

    - What IDC is seeing in terms of customer trends
    - Why automation for every day must start with the right network architecture
    - What customers should look for in a data center automation solution
    - How closed-loop automation and intent-based networking can help you make changes in minutes while preserving reliability
    -Specific steps teams can take towards everyday automation

  • Apstra AOS vs Arista CVP; Compare and Contrast for DC Management Recorded: Dec 18 2019 29 mins
    DJ Spry, Director, Customer Engineering and Elliott Castillo, Solutions Architect
    So, you have decided to automate and have purchased a lot Arista switches? One would think that using the vendor’s Element Management System (EMS) like Arista CloudVision is the way to go. Especially when they’re giving it away! But is it really free? In this webinar we explore the differences between Apstra's AOS Intent-Based Networking and Arista's CloudVision Element Management System.

    At Apstra, we believe that benefits of automation can only come from simplicity. Apstra's Intent-Based Networking for the data center simplifies and automates the way applications consume network resources by reducing design and operational complexity and giving meaningful and actionable insights to operators when things go awry.
