Implementing a DevOps-style “network as code” philosophy led Societe Generale to Cisco. For superior agility, the leading European financial services group standardized and automated its data centers with Cisco ACI and Red Hat Ansible.
“It used to take us days to get a switch configured and months to do a data center software upgrade. With Cisco ACI and our enhanced Ansible playbooks, we are able to achieve zero-touch provisioning for switches, and data center software upgrades only take weeks. That’s an incredible gain of speed and agility.”Thomas Mouilleseaux, Global Head of Network Architecture, Security, Reliability and Automation, Societe Generale
