This webinar builds upon the January 8th session (http://www.slideshare.net/getyourbuildon/techadvantage-webinar-closer-look-into-dynamic-fabric-automation-dfa) and provides additional insight as to the technical components of how DFA works followed by a live demonstration.

Cisco DFA is the industry's first to be optimized for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 at all points, simplifying application deployment (physical and virtual) and providing consistency (quality of service [QoS], availability of network services, user experience, etc.) at all points of the network for all kinds of deployments. It simplifies, optimizes and automates the data center (DC) fabric environment by offering an architecture-based on 4 major pillars (fabric management, workload automation, optimized networking, and virtual fabrics). Each pillar provides a set functions which are modular enough to be used independently so that the adoption of new technology is eased as the DC fabric architecture evolves.
Agenda
- Introduction and overview
- Hands-on DFA Architecture
- XMPP and PoAP Demonstration
- Semi-Automated Workload Deployment
- Fully Automated Workload Deployment with OpenStack

Don't miss the live demo, replay the WebEx: https://cisco.webex.com/ciscosales/lsr.php?AT=pb&SP=EC&rID=74476657&rKey=d0e53a73afce73ad
