This Vendor-independent Workshop Provides You

Are you building a new data center fabric? Are you trying to decide whether to use VMware NSX or Cisco ACI? How about using EVPN solution from Arista, Brocade, Cisco, Cumulus Networks, Juniper or someone else? Can you use whitebox switches with VMware NSX? Does it make sense to run VMware NSX on top of Cisco ACI? This fast-paced half-day workshop will answer all these question (and many more).

Topics Covered

  • What do you really need – an overview of virtual and physical network services your data center fabric should provide, including physical transport infrastructure, virtual networks, and security services like microsegmentation
  • What do various products do? – An overview of what VMware NSX, Cisco ACI or a standard-based EVPN solution from Arista, Brocade, Cisco, Cumulus Networks or Juniper provides.
  • How could I implement various network services with these products?
  • How will my virtualized workload interact with the outside world? How will the VMs communicate with bare-metal servers?
  • How can I reduce the size of failure domains in my data center?
  • Can I use these products to build multi-pod or multi-DC environments?

Takeaways
After attending this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the features offered by VMware NSX, Cisco ACI and EVPN-based data center fabrics from major data center vendors
  • Select the product suitable for your environment based on the environment’s complexity, desired level of automation and self-service, and existing virtualization infrastructure
  • Integrate products from multiple vendors into an optimal data center infrastructure

Who Should Attend
This workshop targets data center or networking architects and designers who are planning, designing or building modern fabric- or virtualization-based data center infrastructure.

If you’re one of them, then this half-day workshop is a must-have overview of typical use cases, available products, and their interoperability.
