1st Cisco ACI Deployment in Iraq!

1st Cisco ACI Deployment in Iraq!
Cyber Code Technologies, a leading solutions integrator in Middle East based in UAE and Iraq, has successfully delivered Cisco’s first ACI in the Iraqi Market. We had build new fabric in the newly established Data Centre based on Cisco ACI Network.
/ Better Automation and Application Control over the Data Center
The solution will help centralized automation and build policy-driven application profile to deliver software flexbility with the scalability of hardware perfroamnce and facilitated rapid systems integration and customization for network services, monitoring, management and orchestation with visibility of both physical and virtual network. ACI is built upon a fabric foundation that delivers the best in class infrastructure by combing hardware, software, an ASIC innovations into an integration system.
Cisco ACI Anywhere, the industry-leading SDN solution, facilitates application agility and data center automation.

“The Iraqi financial sector is transforming to address newly demands from the market as well as is elevating due to digitization needs and transformation of financial and electronic payment requirements, thus we as a leading IT solutions integrator has to bring latest technology innovation to help our client achieve their business goals, we can’t keep relying on legacy technologies to achieve transformation. Thus we had build a complete Cisco ACI story for our customer and had succesfully devliery the project with excellence in spite all challenge around us locally and globally, our dedicated professional services team was able to exceed customer expectations and devliery everything with highest quality and make customer environment ready for business”

/ Key Characteristics of ACI include:
  • Simplified Automation by application-driven policy model.
  • Centralized management, automation and orchestration.
  • Mixed workload and migration optimization
  • Secure and scalable multi-tenant enviornment.
  • Extensibility and opennes – open source, open APIs and open software flexbility for DevOps teams and ecosystem partner integration.
/ Protect your network with zero-trust

Get business continuity, disaster recovery, and highly secure networking with a zero-trust security model.

Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)™ empowers your applications by automatically translating application requirements into infrastructure configuration. Running Cisco ACI with Nutanix allows you to build a datacenter that not only performs well, but is easy to manage and scale, freeing IT to focus on the applications instead of the infrastructure.

/ Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)

The infrastructure controller is the main architectural component of the Cisco ACI solution. It is the unified point of automation and management for the Cisco ACI fabric, policy enforcement, and health monitoring. The APIC appliance is a centralized, clustered controller that optimizes performance and unifies the operation of physical and virtual environments. The controller manages and operates a scalable multitenant Cisco ACI fabric.

The main features of the APIC include the following:

●     Application-centric network policies

●     Data-model-based declarative provisioning

●     Application and topology monitoring and troubleshooting

●     Third-party integration

  • Layer 4 through Layer 7 (L4-L7) services
  • VMware vCenter and vRealize
  • Microsoft Hyper-V, System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), and AzurePack
  • Open Virtual Switch (OVS) and OpenStack
  • Kubernetes
●     Image management (spine and leaf)

●     Cisco ACI inventory and configuration

●     Implementation on a distributed framework across a cluster of appliances

●     Health scores for critical managed objects (tenants, application profiles, switches, etc.)

●     Fault, event, and performance management

The controller framework enables broad ecosystem and industry interoperability with Cisco ACI. It enables interoperability between a Cisco ACI environment and management, orchestration, virtualization, and L4-L7 services from a broad range of vendors.

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series spine and leaf switches for Cisco ACI

Cisco Nexus 9300 and 9500 platform switches support Cisco ACI. Organizations can use them as spine or leaf switches to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems management approach.

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches include modular and fixed 1, 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet switch configurations that are designed to operate either in NX-OS mode for compatibility and consistency with the current Cisco Nexus switches (using Cisco NX-OS Software) or in ACI mode to take full advantage of Cisco ACI application-policy-based services and infrastructure automation features. This dual-function capability provides customers with investment protection and ease of migration to Cisco ACI through a software upgrade.
