In this video, Steve Hollar demonstrates the Cisco Cloud OnRamp for Colocation feature, which is part of the Cisco SD-WAN solution. The first part of the video covers the full provisioning process beginning with the cluster being installed in a remote colocation facility, powered on, and properly cabled. The second part of the video showcases how to build a service chain using the Cloud OnRamp for Colocation feature.

The Cisco Cloud OnRamp for Colocation feature is part of the Cisco SD-WAN solution. This feature allows for the centralized provisioning of a cluster of infrastructure that consists of at least a pair of CSP5444 servers running Cisco Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure Software (NFVIS) and a pair of Catalyst 9500-40X switches directly from Cisco vManage. The cluster provides the foundation to deploy Network Function Virtualization (NFV) within the colocation or other type remote facility. The Cloud OnRamp for Colocation feature also allows for the creation and deployment of service chains consisting of single or multiple Virtual Networking Functions (VNFs) directly from vManage.

This video has two parts. The first part of the video shows the initial cluster provisioning. This section covers the full provision process beginning with the cluster being installed in a remote colocation facility, powered on, and properly cabled. The second part of the video showcases how to build a service chain using the Cloud OnRamp for Colocation feature. The service chain used as an example in this video consists of two VNFs, one vEdge-Cloud SD-WAN router and one ASA-v virtual firewall. BGP is used to exchange routing information through the service chain. The service chain is validated at the end of the video by confirming the remote sites can reach the server located in the colocation facility.
