This webinar describes several real-life network automation use cases including:
- Abstracting network state and using abstracted state in checking network correctness;
- Automating IPv6 deployments
- Automatic deployment of data center fabrics (January 2017)
- Automating network services (February 2017)
- Monitoring network traffic and responding to traffic shifts (spring 2017)
The webinar will be delivered as a series of independent live sessions. The first session (November 22nd 2016) focuses on abstracted network state and automated IPv6 deployments.
Abstracting Network State
David Barroso will describe how building abstractions can help you get to your goals faster, improve your daily operations and reliability and how it can help your organization work together.
Automating IPv6 Deployments
Deploying IPv6 on all servers, switches, routers, firewalls and load balancers is absolutely boring (once you figure out what needs to be done) and error-prone, resulting in potentially awesome troubleshooting experiences.
However, every well-defined repeatable process can be automated, and IPv6 deployment is no exception. This section will help you get started on your journey to automated IPv6 network deployment.
Automating Data Center Fabric Deployments
In this section of the webinar Dinesh Dutt (Cumulus Networks) describes a data center fabric automation use case:
- Simplifying the fabric design and corresponding device configuration;
- Generating device configurations with Jinja2 templates;
- Deploying configurations and managing devices with Ansible.
Automating Network Services
Why can the big public cloud provider offer automated firewalling and load balancing services but you can't replicate that feat in your enterprise environment? This section will give you several guidelines you can use to modernize the network services deployment including:
- Reduce the blast radius;
- Decompose complex security policies into their simple elements;
- Integrate network services deployment into application development process.
About the Author
About the webinar
- Excellent in depth approach to tackling the technical challenges for automating networks
- Wim Gerrits
- This webinar is a great exposure to the overall power of Ansible. Also, shows how as network designers and engineers, we can approach a project with a programmable approach from the beginning. The Ansible specifics flew by way too fast for me to absorb, but what i got out of it is key to journey of re-tooling and re-thinking our jobs. Very valuable. Dinesh is wonderfully articulate as well.
About the instructor
- Articulate. Intelligent.
About the materials
- More use cases would be great, as networks are so diverse.
- Wim Gerrits
- Both segments (NAPALM and IPv6)
provided both deep insight as well
as just a basic introduction to these
really powerful tools/clutch use cases
that are not available anywhere else
in the world, no matter how many
