Unified Fabric is a holistic network architecture comprising switching, security, and services that are designed for physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It uniquely integrates with servers, storage, and orchestration platforms for more efficient operations and greater scalability.
Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is a holistic architecture with centralised automation and policy-driven application profiles. ACI delivers software flexibility with the scalability of hardware performance.
An ACI-based network is deployed, monitored, and managed in a way that supports DevOps and rapid application change. ACI reduces complexity and offers a common policy framework to automate provisioning and managing of resources.
Simplified automation by an application-driven policy model
Centralised visibility with real-time, application health monitoring
Software flexibility for DevOps teams and ecosystem partner integration
Scalable performance and multitenancy in hardware
