Are you questioning which architecture is best for you? Do we do ACI or NSX? At the end of the day, there are requirements for the next-generation data center, and in most cases, one architecture won't always solve the challenge.
How about both?
The biggest concern with both is often complexity. WWT's goal with this workshop is to help reduce that fear of complexity by running dual SDN architectures in the data center. With NSX on ACI, the underlay is simply Cisco ACI. ACI is a highly automated and scalable data center fabric that supports multiple sites. That is the relatively easy part of the equation.
This workshop will now dive into the challenging areas. What architecture will provide the overlay networking services? What are the security framework requirements for micro and macro segmentation? How do we plan to support public cloud, L4-L7 services, bare metal workloads, containers?
Once the workshop is complete you will have a solid understanding of how NSX and ACI will work better together to support your long term business goals.
