WWT is developing solutions to help customers realize the benefit of SDN by enabling the deployment and orchestration of next generation data center networks.

In this demo, WWT Technical Solutions Architect Joel King demonstrates how python modules can be used together in an Ansible playbook to gather facts from the APIC, and then using the variables returned, modify the configuration of the fabric based on the results. Our use case is to meet the requirements of the network security administrator by implementing security policy filters on all end-user tenants. The playbook applies a service contract to a single tenant for testing, and then illustrates how we can use the ACI fabric to return the operating system version of a specific VM attached to the fabric.
