Cisco Systems: Intent-Based Networking (IBN) for the Data Center (9113-2)

 

Abstract:

Intent-Based Networking (IBN) is an industry vision, where the network stays one step ahead of what the business needs by constantly learning, adapting and protecting. It's a radically new way of building and managing networks, designed to scale network changes, simplify troubleshooting and anticipate network and security issues. It's also designed to better manage applications and ultimately deliver a superior user experience. Cisco has been building toward IBN since 2013 when we unveiled our Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), followed by Tetration in 2016. Then early this year we rocked the industry by unveiling the Cisco Network Assurance Engine closing the loop on IBN with continuous, formal verification, insights, and corrective actions. Delivering on that vision now puts us well ahead of our competitors. With ACI, Tetration and Network Assurance Engine Cisco provides the ability to translate application intent, activate those policies across the network and the assurance of intent.

Achieving Business Continuity with FlexPod, Cisco ACI Multi-Pod, and NetApp MetroCluster (1170-3)

 

Abstract:

Come learn more about the new FlexPod with NetApp MetroCluster IP and Cisco ACI Multi-Pod solution, designed to avoid downtime or data loss in any scenario. MetroCluster IP, new for NetApp ONTAP 9.3, provides zero RPO data protection at block level up to 100km, while achieving unparalleled business continuity and infrastructure flexibility for customers at a lower cost. MetroCluster IP offers an alternative to the Fibre Channel fabric for back-end connectivity while retaining the same levels of reliability, scalability, simplicity, and performance. When FlexPod is deployed with an active-active stretch MetroCluster on NetApp All Flash FAS, combining local high availability and remote disaster recovery, the risk of downtime and data loss in disaster and maintenance scenarios is mitigated greatly in planned and unplanned events. With the addition of Cisco ACI, you can facilitate rapid systems integration and customization for network services, monitoring, management, and orchestration.
