Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure Overview

As traditional IT departments are under pressure to provide more agility and better outcomes to the business, a new model for operations has emerged–Fast IT. Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) can enable Fast IT by providing a common policy-based operational model across the entire ACI-ready infrastructure, drastically reducing cost and complexity.

This system-based approach simplifies, optimizes, and accelerates the entire application deployment lifecycle across data center, WAN, access, and cloud. In doing so, it empowers IT to be more responsive to changing business and application needs, enhancing agility and adding business value.
