0:07 in this video we'll take a look at how

0:09 easy it is to enable new business

0:11 services with appstra so we're going to

0:13 be adding a new network for our new

0:15 application

0:18 this might happen if you have a dev team

0:20 that's implementing a new app or for

0:22 whatever reason you need a new network

0:24 added to your data center fabric

0:29 so the first thing we're going to do is

0:31 create a routing zone which is

0:33 essentially a vrf for the application in

0:35 this case we'll call it production

0:38 it's as simple as that to create the

0:40 routing zone however appstra is going to

0:42 tell us that we need some further

0:43 information to enable this service

0:48 we need our loopback ip addresses for

0:50 the leaf switches

0:52 which we can assign from a pre-existing

0:53 pool of ips

1:05 once we've done that we can create a new

1:07 virtual network for this application

1:12 so we will give it a name

1:15 associate it with a production routing

1:17 zone that we just created

1:22 provide a vlan

1:25 and an ipsubnet

1:36 and then we will say that we'd like to

1:37 make it present on all of the racks in

1:39 the network

1:44 in the uncommitted tab in yellow we can

1:47 review the changes before we commit

1:54 all looks good so we click commit

1:59 we can write some notes to give some

2:01 context in case we need to roll back to

2:03 a prior state

2:05 and click commit

2:10 and now we have a new routing zone and

2:12 network created for our new application
