Integrating Network Devices Into Your DevOps Workflow

Time 10/18/17 10:20AM-10:40AM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

Traditionally, networking has been configured and operated differently from the rest of the infrastructure, leading to fragmented operational practices. Ansible’s agentless posture enables it to automate the entire infrastructure from the network to the application. This capability allows you to codify your entire infrastructure, including policy and security, into your Devops workflow.

In this session, we will cover Ansible’s ability to automate and abstract both on-prem physical and virtual networking infrastructure as well as cloud-based networking infrastructure. We will also outline and demonstrate a CI workflow that includes a git-based repository for version control and management, an automation engine for testing and verification, and Ansible Tower to push out playbooks into the infrastructure.
