In this week’s episode of Engineers Unplugged, Tim Swanson (@tiswanso) and Nigel Kersten (@nigelkersten) discuss NXOS and Puppet, and the Cisco/Puppet plug-ins created for configuring network switches. What does this mean? Watch and see. Hint: it ends in unicorns. **The next Engineers Unplugged shoot is at EMC World, Las Vegas, May 2014! Contact me now […]
Acquisition and mergers involve integration of both business and IT infrastructure and there is a need for fast and seamless integration. Similarly, in shared-services scenario, tenants in a network need transparent access to the extranet or shared services in more flexible fashion. Cisco VXLAN EVPN Downstream VNI provides greater flexibility and time savings when it comes to integration of disjoint networks and shared-service deployments.
Explore two new methods of network automation in NX-OS using a model-based approach.
Learn how to set up streaming telemetry with gNMI on your Cisco Nexus switches and stream it to an open source collector.
See how to develop Your Own CLI Commands in NX-OS with the NX-SDK, a C++ abstraction and plugin-library layer that streamlines access to NX-OS backend infrastructure processes.
Got “learn network programmability and automation” on your To-Do list?… Start now with the Data Center Networking Track at DevNet Day on June 18th. Make the infrastructure agile, flexible, and secure enough to handle today’s demanding workloads.
Start exploring the programmability features that come with Open NX-OS. In this blog we’ll cover NX-API CLI.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a tool that helps you profile the network end-to-end and store that info as snapshots? Genie can help you do it with a simple command!
Part 1: Setting up your development environment. The blog series starts at the beginning, without assuming any prior knowledge of advanced computer programming and networking concepts.
