Apstra Lab

41 Launches
Solution Overview

We will demonstrate how Apstra can efficiently and effectively build a basic Multi-Site fabric during this lab. This orchestrator behaves much like Cisco DCNM/CNDFC or Arista CVP. The ultimate differentiator is that Apstra works well with all the major switch manufacturers.

Goals & Objectives

This lab will enable a student to build a basic Multi-Site fabric using Apstra for complete end-to-end connectivity. Apstra was designed from the ground up to be vendor-agnostic, which gives it a distinct advantage and puts you, the customer, in the driver's seat by allowing you to procure whatever hardware meets business objectives, budgets, and timelines.
