This session will cover the integration between Cisco Prime Service Catalog and Red Hat OpenShift. The result of this partnership is a new innovative tool that enables end users to order and take delivery of fully configured application stacks from a unified self-service portal. In this session you will learn:
•What is an application blueprint and how it enables automated deployment of application stacks in a consistent manner
•How Cisco Prime Service Catalog delivers a single pane-of-glass for all users to provision, configure and manage complete application stacks
•How configure complete application stacks including the underlying components such as network services
•Auto-scaling and load balancing capabilities of this solution relieve developers of the need to recreate platform services for each application
Confidently integrate Cisco’s security portfolio to respond to the increasingly sophisticated attacks being targeted at the data center. This webcast will focus on the new secure data center technologies based on the latest Cisco Validated Design. This solution makes sure of the secure and reliable delivery of business applications across the data center.
This webcast utilizes several primary technologies, such as the Cisco ASA 5585-X Firewall with Intrusion Prevention, Lancope Stealthwatch, Cisco TrustSec, Cisco UCS Director, and Secure Enclaves Architecture on FlexPod in a design that brings application awareness to the data center fabric and network services.
Primary attributes of the design:
•ASA firewall clustering for scalability
•Fabric integration with virtual port channels (vPCs)
•Link aggregation for simplified operations
•Intrusion protection and application visibility
•Real-time signature updates
•Secure group tags (SGTs) for policy aggregation
Customers who deploy the solutions benefit from simplified operations, increased availability, enhanced utilization of fabric resources, and threat mitigation and remediation of advanced persistent threats (APTs).
Cisco introduces VMDC DCI solution which provides validated design to ensure high availability and performance for applications across Metro and Geo data centers. This solution unlocks Business continuity and stateful workload mobility which is top of mind for both public and private cloud providers to connect multiple data centers to support Business Critical operations.
Workloads continue to increase in data centers, be they virtual or physical. The network infrastructure must respond to these operational demands with ever greater agility. Cisco DFA or Dynamic Fabric Automation is an evolution of the Cisco Data Center and Cloud Networking which enables customers to gain efficiency and increase service velocity. Cisco DFA simplifies fabric management, optimizes the infrastructure, and automates network provisioning with the Cisco Nexus 2000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 Series Switches
With DFA, customers gain unsurpassed operational simplicity thorough superior integration and can scale well beyond 4,000 VLANs and tenants. This session will help you understand how Cisco DFA technology can be deployed incrementally in the evolving data center. Customer use cases will show real-world benefits. A demonstration included will illustrate some of the DFA capabilities in more detail.

Big data has become mainstream as businesses realize its benefits, including improved operation efficiency, better customer experience, and more accurate predictions. However, companies are often challenged by the complexities of traditional server solutions. In this webinar, you will learn how to unlock the value of big data with the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®). Nearly all industries are deriving value from big data and Cisco UCS delivers the performance, capacity, management simplicity and scale that businesses need to increase agility, speed time-to-value, and deliver a competitive advantage that drives revenue.

With the increase in the number of workloads in the datacenter be it virtual, physical or cloud, the infrastructure needs to enable a varying mix of LAN and SAN traffic. Cisco Unified Fabric, Cisco’s Data Center Switching solution, delivers flexibility with multi-protocol support. It enables true convergence by combining the power of Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC) technology. This session will help you understand how FCoE technology can be deployed incrementally in the evolving converged Data Center designs. Some case studies from customers like Boeing will be presented to demonstrate the real-world view and benefits of FCoE designs.
The topics that they will address include:
•Providing design guidance and share best practices on how to design a converged infrastructure that merges SAN (Fibre Channel) and LAN (Ethernet) environments
•Key consideration in deploying real-world FCoE designs with a number of real use case examples
Title: The Path to Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Convergence in a Unified Data Center
Cisco's Andrew Levin and NexusIS's Paul Sferratore address the organizational and operational challenges in the new data center model and unified fabric. Will unified roles or unified tools move the business forward? Watch and see.
