Juniper Apstra Demo: Consistent Data Center Operations Across Vendors

Demo Drop Network Automation
Slide with a white background and a headline that says “Edit Logical Device.” There is a graph below with blue squares and another below it that says “Panel 2”and has a graph with six purple squares.

You won’t believe how easy it is to manage your network with Apstra.

If your goal is to accelerate deployment while keeping consistency across your network, then Apstra is the tool for you. It’s the only vendor in the industry that offers vendor-agnostic, intent-based networking. Learn more about how your network can benefit from its flexibility and scalability in this demo.

0:07 appstra is the only vendor in the

0:09 industry that offers vendor agnostic

0:11 intent based networking

0:12 with appstra you can accelerate

0:14 deployment while keeping consistency

0:16 across your network you get investment

0:19 protection and the flexibility to choose

0:21 a vast number of hardware and adopt new

0:23 technologies faster

0:25 in this approach logical devices appear

0:28 in the appstr user interface as

0:30 abstractions of physical devices and are

0:32 vendor agnostic

0:34 vendor-specific mappings are added using

0:36 interface maps

0:38 in this video we will see an example of

0:40 how appstr manages three different data

0:42 centers situated at three various

0:44 locations with the same configuration by

0:47 different underlying physical hardware

0:52 let's take a look at how appstra handles

0:54 its multi-vendor support

0:59 so the first thing we're going to look

1:01 at are logical devices and logical

1:04 devices are actually abstractions of

1:06 physical devices

1:10 but they share common form factors

1:16 such as the number of speed and rolls of

1:18 different ports

1:20 so there's no vendor-specific

1:22 information involved in the individual

1:24 logical devices

1:27 they are then mapped using an interface

1:29 map to an actual physical device

1:37 you can see in this pick list we have an

1:40 extensive list of multi-vendor device

1:42 support

1:46 so functionally what appstra allows you

1:49 to do is manage multiple data centers

1:52 from a single management even if those

1:54 data centers use different vendors

2:00 one based on new york with juniper

2:02 devices

2:05 we have another data center in

2:06 pennsylvania with cisco devices

2:12 these are all similar architectures two

2:14 spines three leaf switches associated

2:17 servers and a gateway router

2:24 and then a california data center with

2:26 arista devices

2:31 we have three when you define the intent

2:33 for your network within appstra

2:36 appstro will translate that to the

2:38 individual config needed for the

2:40 different vendor devices

2:45 in the case of the new york data center

2:47 with juniper devices we can take a look

2:49 at our spine 1

2:51 and we can take a look at the rendered

2:53 configuration and we can see juno's

2:55 config

2:59 similarly with the cisco data center we

3:01 click on spine1

3:07 these have the same device profile and

3:09 the same intent to be found in all of

3:11 these data centers we can see that it's

3:14 rendered the configuration for the cisco

3:16 devices

3:19 and finally arista data center same case

3:24 we can take a look at the rendered

3:26 configuration

3:28 and see the eos config

3:32 this is how you can deploy and operate

3:34 multi-vendor networks with the ease and

3:36 simplicity of a single vendor network
