Cisco VTS is an add-in to Data Center Network Manager which allows configuration and visibility of the EVPN VXLAN protocol deployed on a Nexus switch fabric. VTS is not a full-fledged SDN controller such as the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) for Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabrics, This is by design. It’s an alternative to ACI for customers who need automation and consistent policy configuration but who don’t want to opt into the object-based policy model of ACI,, which requires a potentially challenging change to how network teams interact with service development, server, storage, and security teams. Also unlike ACI, VTS also can control supported data center edge routers/switches to provide completely integrated and automated management of the underlay (physical network), which is the sole focus of the network team.

What you will learn:

  • Overview of VTS
  • Newly released features
  • Roadmap
  • Demo of capabilities and look-and-feel of the GUI
