A Joint Solution for Infrastructure-as-Code

Cisco and HashiCorp’s partnership has grown steadily this past year with a bevy of joint cloud-native solutions that have taken the industry by storm. On September 29, we launched our joint Infrastructure-as-Code solution (IaC) featuring Cisco ACI and HashiCorp Terraform. The solution enables customers to embrace a DevOps model and accelerate application deployment, monitor operations, optimize network compliance in a secure and predictable manner. To keep the momentum going, explore post-launch Cisco Developer Community webinars, Cisco Champions briefing for influencers, DevNet Create, HashiConf Digital 2020, ONUG Fall 2020, where our joint innovations showcase continued to garner great developer interest.

What’s New and What’s Next…

Following on the success of our joint IaC solution, we’ve made great strides on a new integration between Cisco ACI and HashiCorp Consul that enables customers to operate their intent-based infrastructure efficiently, with insights from HashiCorp Consul service mesh. This integration, Consul App for Cisco ACI, brings together an intelligent closed-loop collaboration between the service/application and network that will pave the way for a dynamic, service-driven network infrastructure automation with self-service capabilities for services. In addition, the app will provide end-to-end visibility and insights into the entire technology stack starting from the application services to the physical network. We are redefining intelligent networks with Cisco ACI and HashiCorp Consul.

What if I told you, from definition to deployment, application services could define networking and security requirements at the infrastructure layer, in an automated and fully synchronized way? We have more joint solution launches planned with HashiCorp in the new year, and heralding these innovations is a webinar we have planned for next week. Join us on December 9 at 10:00 AM PST, where we’ll demonstrate how Cisco ACI, HashiCorp Consul and Consul-Terraform-Sync work together to provide end-to-end application discovery, network visibility and infrastructure orchestration. We have a well laid-out agenda with presentation, demos featuring key use-cases and a live Q&A.
