Achieve Faster Business Outcomes with Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite on FlexPod

Speaker: Jeremy Oakey, Cisco and Ikramullah Mohammad, TME
Day/Date/Time: Monday, September 26, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Digitalization has caused fundamental changes in the business landscape resulting in the need to transform the way applications and business services are delivered to line of business professionals and customers. Digital transformation requires a flexible business model that delivers speed, consistency, and agility. The industry has proven that private-cloud–based automation has become the preferred manner to achieve these business outcomes, and customers want not only virtual services but also complete application delivery. This session provides an overview and demo of the newest capabilities of Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite. This solution is designed for organizations looking to deploy a hybrid-ready private cloud on Flexpod that will deliver:

  • Easy-to-use provisioning, management, and performance monitoring across infrastructure and application instances in both private and hybrid environments
  • Ability to graphically design and deploy multitier application stacks using Cisco ACI-based and industry standard containers
  • Lifecycle management of bare metal and multitier applications stacks located in private or hybrid cloud environments

 

Cisco UCS Storage Integration, Technologies, and Topologies with NetApp

Speakers: Craig Ashapa, Cisco
Day/Date/Time: Tuesday, September 27, 2:15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

This session details the storage-related technologies, integration, topologies, and best practices in the Cisco UCS family of products. Topics include third-generation Cisco UCS hardware and Cisco UCS Manager software, Cisco UCS to NetApp array connectivity options (FC/FCoE/iSCSI/NAS), Cisco UCS to Cisco SAN connectivity, and deep-dive troubleshooting. A live demonstration of Cisco UCS storage profiles on the latest Cisco UCS third-generation infrastructure is given.

 

FlexPod Data Center with Cisco ACI

Speakers:John George, Cisco
Day/Date/Time: Wednesday, September 28, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

This session covers the implementation of FlexPod data center with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). This FlexPod solution offers operational efficiency and accelerates data center application deployments using a policy-driven model across network, server, and storage conducive to automation.

Topics covered include how VLANs and VxLANs are used in the ACI fabric and how they map onto endpoint groups (EPGs), use of both the VMware vSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) and the Cisco Application Virtual Switch (AVS) in the virtual environment, use of restrictive contracts, Layer 3 routing in the environment, and shared Layer 3 routing to the outside, interfacing NetApp FAS storage to the ACI fabric including ACI bridge domain setup, interfacing the Cisco UCS system to the ACI fabric, multitenancy, Layer 4–7 services implementation, and specific FlexPod setups with Cisco ACI. Recommendations are made on multitenancy, storage protocol and application setup, performance characterization, and scaling a FlexPod with Cisco ACI.
