Network Configuration Automation at ESnet

Time 10/16/18 11:50AM-12:10PM

Room Pacifica Ballroom 10/11/12

Session Abstract

ESnet's goal is to get to 100% automation of our network, but how do we get there? Starting with creating templates to parameterize our network device configurations, writing our "business rules" as software, and moving towards creating a singe source of truth, this presentation will provide an overview of what we have learned along the way in our journey in developing our tooling with open source components including YAML, Jinja2, and Python in a multi-vendor network using 'git' as the workflow engine to tie it all together.
