Cisco Catalyst Benefits
Our company's server infrastructure is 95% virtualized, so that is something that is definitely top-of-mind for us. We also have custom infrastructure build scripts that can provision Cisco Blades (ESX hosts), network segmentation, virtual load balancers, and individual virtual machines (Windows or Linux). We tap into the APIs that the Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series Switches make available to provision resources on the core switches for different pieces of whatever infrastructure we are running as code scripts. Using automation to build out infrastructure resources allows us to turn over new environments to our application development team much faster (with less likelihood of user error or build issues).
