Time Wednesday, Oct 3 2:30PM - 3:15PM Speakers Trey Prinz Red Hat Till Maas Red Hat NetDevOps - Batteries and Pipeline Included with Cisco NSO and Ansible Carl Moberg, Cisco; Kevin Corbin, Cisco show more Description Cisco NSO provides an out-of-the-box, no-code API to the configuration and operational state of your entire physical and virtual network across all your vendors. That's a mouthful we know, but combine it with YAML-encoding of all that data and a small set of modules to manage it, and it becomes an unprecedented way to allow Ansible to robustly automate all the networks with a low-toil approach. Including auto-generation of task content based on golden configurations. Time Wednesday, Oct 3 2:30PM - 3:15PM Speakers Carl Moberg Cisco Kevin Corbin Cisco Verizon Connect's Internal Container Cloud Solution With Ansible Ira Ramtirth, Verizon Connect; Ketan Adkar, Verizon Connect show more Description To address Verizon Connect’s lack of automated processes to manage their legacy applications and infrastructure, they launched an initiative aimed at standardizing an automated DevOps process from infrastructure provisioning to application deployments. A simple powerful language like Ansible, helped to achieve this goal of building a container cloud platform using infrastructure as code. Using Ansible, we were able to deploy a 4-rack datacenter with zero touch provisioning within 8-10 hours.
