Are you challenged with responding quickly to business needs? Do you spend too much time configuring and maintaining your network? Tune in to learn how you can spend more time delivering innovation to your business with Open NX-OS.


Accelerate Your IT Tasks with Open NX-OS

(Live Webinar December 10, 2015 at 12:00 pm Pacific Time / 3:00 pm Eastern Time)

In dynamic data centers, network IT teams are required to respond quickly to support business needs. The current way of doing things might not be sufficient, especially in DevOps environments. In this interactive 60-minute webinar, we’ll look at the pillars of Open NX-OS and how they allow IT to manage the network the same way as Linux servers and integrate with existing tools and processes. Content management tools used in the server world such Puppet are now enabled in Cisco Nexus platforms through Open NX-OS. As we look at specific IT use cases, we’ll see how Open NX-OS capabilities along with Puppet integration will transform the way things are done today in a highly efficient manner.


Topics to be discussed include:

  • Overview of Open NX-OS

  • Overview of Puppet and how it works

  • Demonstration of use cases showing how things are done today, then how they can be done more efficiently with open NX-OS:

    • Use case 1: switch provisioning and configuration

    • Use case 2: monitoring and troubleshooting

    • Use case 3: security and compliance

    • Use case 4 (if time permits): software maintenance upgrade

Approximate duration: 60 minutes
