Accelerate Application Deployments
Deploy Applications at the Speed of Business
Application demands on data center environments are rapidly changing. IT organizations are looking at cloud automation tools and Software Defined Networking (SDN) architectures to accelerate application delivery, reduce operating costs, and increase business agility.
Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Cisco Evolved Services Platform allow different IT and network domains, including compute, storage, security, and network, to work together under a single automation framework that addresses all required resources and services that support an application. This breaks down traditional silos, simplifies operations, and reduces deployment times.
ACI Cuts Deployment Time and Effort
Businesses and cloud-based deployments require more agility from the IT infrastructure. The ability to adjust to rapidly changing business requirements, revenue opportunities and network bottlenecks is a key metric for IT organizations.
ACI automates the workflows associated with workload placement, network and service provisioning, and end-to-end application delivery. Policy-based automation, aligned with the organizational and application requirements, accelerates this delivery from weeks to hours or even minutes, depending on the complexity of the application environment. Application policies are centrally managed and stored in the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC), and distributed to network and security devices to enforce mobile application policies easily and efficiently.
A single, centralized policy language and model makes the ongoing management and modification of policies across many applications, and potentially many hundreds of devices, easy and intuitive, and vastly more scalable.
