I’ve been working on a data center migration from regular switches to a Cisco ACI fabric in the last couple of months. I can’t say that’s enough to be defined as an ACI expert but I’ll share here what I learned from the experience. The project started with a Network Centric approach for an one-to-one migration from the previous network. After the migration new VRFs are being created in App Centric mode with contracts.
This week I’ve attended a training about Cisco ACI DCAC9K. Based on my personal experience no training can cover all the topics or all the use cases but I think this training with a cover-to-cover read of Deploying ACI can help to build the basis to start the ACI journey with strong fundamentals.
