NIL's Mitja Robas on Data Center Automation

On the first day of the conference will our expert Mitja Robas deliver the presentation Make Data Center Network Automation Your Friend.

Though designing and sizing a data center solution is important, many tend to forget about day 0 to day 2 operations i.e. implementing changes, updates and upgrades, scaling, maintaining, and monitoring the solution… These are all important parts of a solution's life cycle. A seasoned IT professional will agree that we rarely see a greenfield project but rather a migration or an upgrade of an existing environment. Such projects almost certainly consist of multiple components - think about physical and then virtual workloads, now adding the realm of containers – the network must provide common ground for all though they may have quite different requirements. The pace of changes, the scale of environments, the lifespan of instances, and sheer complexity (even though it's under the hood) is beyond the abilities of manual administration. Automation can be our friend in saving time, omitting errors and faults, and pursuing operational nirvana. We'll take a down-to-earth look at the automation, the benefits and challenges, discuss how it can be used, and show that automation does help operating nowadays environments more efficiently.
