Title: What is Cisco ACI?Advantages of Cisco ACI
Post by: masud895 on August 25, 2020, 09:36:56 AM
Cisco ACI
Cisco ACI, Cisco’s software-defined networking (SDN) architecture, enhances business agility, reduces TCO, automates IT tasks, and accelerates data center application deployments.

Why Today’s Solutions Are Insufficient:
Today’s solutions lack an application-centric approach. The use of virtual overlays on top of physical layers has increased complexity by adding policies, services, and devices.
Traditional SDN solutions are network centric and based on constructs that replicate networking functions that already exist.

ACI Key Benefits:
Centralized Policy-Defined Automation Management
Holistic application-based solution that delivers flexibility and automation for agile IT
Automatic fabric deployment and configuration with single point of management
Automation of repetitive tasks, reducing configuration errors
Real-Time Visibility and Application Health Score
Centralized real-time health monitoring of physical and virtual networks
Instant visibility into application performance combined with intelligent placement decisions
Faster troubleshooting for day-2 operation
Open and Comprehensive End-to-End Security
Open APIs, open standards, and open source elements that enable software flexibility for DevOps teams, and firewall and application delivery controller (ADC) ecosystem partner integration
Automatic capture of all configuration changes integrated with existing audit and compliance tracking solutions
Detailed role-based access control (RBAC) with fine-grained fabric segmentation
Application Agility
Management of application lifecycle from development, to deployment, to decommissioning—in minutes
Automatic application deployment and faster provisioning based on predefined profiles
Continuous and rapid delivery of virtualized and distributed applications
