    S8|E25 Delivering Visibility and Actionable Insights with ThousandEyes

    S8|E25 Delivering Visibility and Actionable Insights with ThousandEyes

    ThousandEyes is joining forces with the Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches to bring Internet and Cloud Intelligence to tens of thousands of organizations around the world, enabling them to see and manage networks and applications that they rely on but do not directly own or control. By bundling ThousandEyes with its most widely deployed switches for campus and branch environments, Cisco is solving a critical visibility gap for enterprises, who are increasingly leveraging cloud, Internet and SaaS to deliver digital services to its employees and internal systems.

    Cisco Catalyst 9300/9400 switches with a DNA Advantage or Premier license can now serve as a vantage point for enterprises to gain a 360-degree view of campus service delivery—with no need to deploy additional hardware or purchase a separate software license.

    S8|E21 Simple Steps to SD-Access Adoption

    S8|E21 Simple Steps to SD-Access Adoption

    In this podcast, we discuss recent features, enhancements, and deployment strategies for Cisco SD-Access.

    New features have enabled additional ways to evolve an existing network into a modern, automated, and secure SD-Access network in gradual steps that minimize disruption to business or users. Network Administrators can choose their starting point in the network evolution journey depending on the status of their existing network and decide their destination based on their business needs, adding benefits at each step along the way.

    New segmentation capabilities and deployment flexibility have enhanced SD-Access to support Layer 2 switched access networks as a migration step in the journey.

    New features also enable use cases that allow flexible routing of traffic from Layer 2 access networks to destinations outside the fabric. This is very useful in multitenant networks.

    We also discuss the deep visibility that SD-Access features such as AI Endpoint Analytics and Group Based Policy Analytics bring that helps administrators determine what endpoint devices are on the network and how communication flows between them and other resources. This visibility lets them craft effective and granular access policies, which they can enforce automatically through device configurations that segment the network.

    S8|E20 Extend Infrastructure as Code to Your On-Prem Environment

    Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become the standard mode of operation for public cloud infrastructure provisioning and modern development practices. However, extending IaC to your on-premises infrastructure can be challenging. Cisco and HashiCorp recently announced a joint solution, Cisco Intersight Service for HashiCorp Terraform that addresses this issue.

    In this podcast we will dig into the requirements for bringing IaC on-prem and how the combination of Intersight and Terraform Cloud Business makes it easier and safer.
