Building Network Automation Solutions
Network Infrastructure as Code
In this module we’ll discuss an interesting take on network automation: treating network infrastructure as code and using software development techniques to manage it.
The introductory part of this module will be part of the Autumn 2018 live course, in the meantime please enjoy a real-life case study presented by Mark Prior in Spring 2018 course.
1:39:46 Network Infrastructure as Code
In the Network Infrastructure as Code presentation Mark Prior described how he automated a private cloud infrastructure, and how he uses infrastructure-as-code principles to build reliable data center networking infrastructure.
|Automation Cloud Infrastructure||37:26||2018-02-15|
In the first part of his presentation Mark described a large-scale private cloud automation project he worked on.
|Network Infrastructure as Code||17:58||2018-02-15|
After introducing one of his network automation projects, Mark described how he uses infrastructure-as-code principles in his work.
|Introduction to Using Ansible in Network Automation||16:21||2018-02-15|
Mark spent ~15 minutes describing the principles of Ansible. As you might already be familiar with them, we moved them into a separate video.
|Demo: Network Infrastructure as Code||28:01||2018-02-15|
The final part of Mark's presentation was a hands-on demo combining Git (version control), Jenkins (CI/CD pipeline), Ansible (configuration deployment), Python (post-deployment checks) and Slack (ops team notification).
