Re: AWS and Azure cloud Solutions and its integration with ACI.
Here are the most common questions I get from Customers:
Are there any feature gaps between my private fabric and deploying ACI in the Cloud (Azure, AWS)?
Do I need MSO?
What additional components do I need to extend my existing ACI fabric into the cloud?
What licensing do I need?
Can one of my Pods be in the Cloud?
Can my Cloud instance manage a physical Remote Leaf?
How can I evaluate ACI in the Cloud?
There is a pretty good CLUS presentation (BRKACI-2690) but it does not cover all of the above.
Assumptions: Some familiarity with AWS and/or Azure and familiarity with ACI
Comment..for an engineering/technical skip the requisite why? changing application landscape etc. if that is in question point to other content that covers that..there is lots! That is also why I suggest clearly stating the "entrance criteria" so you don't spend time on ACI 101. There is alot to cover even in the few topics below.
- Component Overview (much of this is in BRKACI-2690 and in other material)
- Ingredients for extending into the cloud and for starting in the cloud
-- Requirements (cheat sheets of these are incredibly valuable) -- Licensing
-- Cloud Provider Requirements
- Scenario 1 Extension into Cloud (Azure might be good as there is content for AWS) start to finish Take an on-prem ACI fabric and extend it to the cloud start to finish (you already have pretty good material for this)
- Scenario 2 Cloud Only start to finish
Start with ACI in the cloud only
- Scenario 3 - Stretch my EPG
