Updates to Sandbox Reservation Internet Access Policy

Due to changes in our networking policies, we are updating the internet access policy within our sandbox reservation instances.
Hosts will no longer have internet access outbound.
This should not affect the overall functionality or access to the resources within the sandbox instances, connecting via VPN.

Keep Innovating!

Where can I find exact difference between APIC DC and APIC EM?

There are plenty of white papers telling what APIC EM does but I didn't find anything that compares DC and EM. Any help is appreciated. And why isn't DC sandbox available?

Re: Where can I find exact difference between APIC DC and APIC EM?

Hi,

The APIC-EM controller manages application bandwidth via QoS and packet routing via ACL's and policies that can be set via the API.  In addition the network topology and device location can be determined.  More features are being added as well.  ACI APIC-DC is an entirely separate component.  In this controller the focus on deploying, managing and monitoring network based applications which is done via Application Network Profiles (ANP)s and End Point Groups (EPG)s.  Other features like interfacing with OpenStack and Fabric Packet Flow management exist as well.  Please see the blog at Why ACI APIC-DC?  In addition there is a white paper at:  http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/products/collateral/cloud-systems-management/aci-fabric-controller/at-a-glance-c45-7298…

Thanks,

Brett
