ITD (Intelligent Traffic Director) is being deployed by a large number of customers, and it is saving them massive CAPEX and OPEX, while providing unprecedented scale and high availability.
Here is a 10 minute video that shows step by step ITD deployment.
ITD is shipping on Nexus 9k/7700/7k/6k/5k Series of switches. ITD won the Best of Interop 2015 in Data Center category.

My team is moving hundreds of applications to our new Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) platform, and network dependency mapping is the first step in this migration. Most of Cisco IT’s applications are three tiered with web and middle tier residing on the same Java Virtual Machine (JVM) connecting to a database.
A typical application may have one or more JVMs that connect to one or more databases. Sometimes the databases internally connect to other databases. Over the last five years, we have heavily invested in Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) and thus have JVMs running web services. These web services are consumed by one or more user interfaces (UI). Some of these applications have jobs that run on our Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler (TES). Read More »

The Cisco ACI partner eco-system is growing rapidly. I was privileged to see prima-facie, at Cisco Live San Diego last month, the excitement surrounding AVI’s solution announcement with Cisco ACI and the growing customer interest. Though a late-comer to the ADC (Application delivery controller) market, AVI packs a punch to make customers and partners sit up and listen. What’s impressive is that, more than 20 customer deployments are already under way, both in private clouds and on premise Data Centers. In this blog, I want so share some of the key value-props and architectural benefits Cisco ACI-AVI joint solution brings to Application deployment in Data Centers.
The highly complementary nature of the AVI CADP (Cloud Application delivery platform) and Cisco ACI solution is achieved through a common architecture featuring unified management and control planes, as well as the ability to scale data plane resources elastically, on-demand as application requirements dictate.
The AVI solution integrates into Cisco ACI environments through RESTful APIs, providing end-users with holistic application delivery, security and load balancing, in addition to real-time visibility, monitoring, and integrated (inline) analytics of their on premise and cloud-based applications.
A simple architectural depiction will help understand how Cisco ACI and AVI Networks solution works.
The collaboration between Cisco and AVI Networks has delivered a highly integrated, L2–L7 solution that automates and simplifies the insertion, provisioning and scaling of key network services into a Cisco ACI fabric. The solution also delivers end-to-end visibility and analytics that provide actionable insights into application performance and the end-user experience, which are critical in modern data centers.
The Cisco ACI – AVI Networks CADP joint solution provides customers key benefits such as:
- Quick deployment with a high degree of automation
- Quick app provisioning with zero-touch L4-L7 service lifecycle management
- Full-stack L2-L7 visibility and closed-loop analytics
Stay tuned for more exciting news on the ACI-AVI solution front.
