Cisco® Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI™) is an industry-leading secure, open, and comprehensive Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solution. It radically simplifies, optimizes, and accelerates infrastructure deployment and governance, and expedites the application deployment lifecycle. Keeping applications as the focal point, Cisco ACI abstracts all the underlying infrastructure up to the business metrics.
Customers who are used to operating their data centers in a network-centric context often struggle to transition to an application-centric way of operating data center. Enterprises are looking for a gradual transition toward the application-centric approach.
NetBrain integration with ACI (currently in beta phase, scheduled for release later this year) has been developed to enable our joint customers to take this journey toward application-centric data centers powered by Cisco ACI. NetBrain’s core technologies Dynamic Network Mapping and A-B path discovery provide a network-centric and application-centric view of your data center in an intuitive single pane of glass view. This side-by-side presentation of network and application contexts enables users to visualize their data center architecture in both contexts, thus enabling them to transition to application-centric model. The mapping combined with other NetBrain technologies, such as Executable Runbooks, also provides enterprises with powerful troubleshooting capabilities.
At the upcoming Cisco Live! Barcelona (Jan. 29 – Feb. 2, 2018), we will showcase the NetBrain–Cisco ACI Integration Solution with the following key capabilities:
At the Cisco Live! event, in addition to the continuous demonstrations, we will host several special presentations with our partner, Ravi Balakrishnan, Senior Marketing Manager from Cisco, to showcase the power of this integration.
