ACI Integrating with F5 v3.0 (ACI-F5 v3.0)

ACI Integrating with F5 v3.0 (ACI-F5 v3.0)

Overview

Duration : 3 Days

The Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (Cisco APIC) is the unifying point of automation and management for the Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabric. The Cisco APIC provides centralized access to all fabric information, optimizes the application lifecycle for scale and performance, supporting flexible application provisioning across physical and virtual resources.
