NA 101 – AUTOMATING NETWORK CHANGE AND ENFORCING NETWORK CONFIGURATION POLICIES WITH INFOBLOX NETMRI

Presenter: Lou Nardo, Product Marketing Director, with a technical Q&A panel including John Belamaric, Software Architect, Chris Wacker, Principle Engineer, and Sif Baksh, Senior Professional Services Engineer.
Of interest to: Network directors, architects, and engineers; IT operations managers

Network configuration changes are often still done manually by senior network engineers. Further, as the network evolves over time, these same engineers are the only ones who can verify device configuration policies—a task so large and complex it is rarely done and/or only spot checked. Time-consuming and tedious, both of these processes limit a team’s ability roll out changes within allotted windows, delaying service delivery. They also increase risk to network stability and security.

Attend this track session and:

  • See how other network teams are using NetMRI to roll out changes
  • See how other customers use NetMRI’s unique policy enforcement
  • Discover tips and tricks for making the most of the NetMRI change automation and policy capabilities
  • Find ways to drastically reduce the number and complexity of scripts you use to manage your network
  • See how to customize NetMRI to enforce your unique configuration policy requirements
  • Ask the architects for answers you can’t find in the Admin Guide.

You’ll come away knowing how to control and automate your network configuration changes, make sure your network is configured the way you know it should be, and free up time for more valuable service delivery tasks—with tips and examples from other NetMRI customers.

 

NA 102 – CUSTOMIZING NETMRI NETWORK CHANGES WITH CONFIGURATION COMMAND SCRIPTING (CCS)

Presenter: Sif Baksh, Professional Services, and Dave Signori, Senior Director for Product Management
Of interest to: Network engineering and operations

You use Infoblox NetMRI for discovery and configuration collection. Now take your investment to the next level by fully leveraging NetMRI change automation through configuration command scripting (CCS). CCS is a proprietary scripting language used for executing sequences of commands on supported network devices. If you know your devices’ command line interface, writing CCS scripts is relatively straightforward. CCS enables you to process device output and execute change across hundreds of multi-vendor devices in a single job run.

Join us in this session to

  • See best practices for CCS scripting and sample scripts for common tasks
  • Learn how to gather customized data from devices and to customize script job runs
  • See how to efficiently apply changes to wide swaths of multi-vendor network devices
  • Gain access to sample content and documentation

You’ll come away with a plan to start or expand on using NetMRI’s CCS scripting capability to automate change on your network.

 

NA 103 – NETWORK AUTO-REMEDIATION: FROM URBAN LEGEND TO REALITY

Presenter: Michael Ell, Director of Engineering, Empowered Networks
Of interest to: Network engineering and operations

Successful network automation demands accurate device discovery, lightweight configuration collection, continuous validation of compliance, and the ability to dynamically respond to changes in network configuration—also known as “auto-remediation.”

This used to mean knitting together clumsy vendor-provided frameworks with home-grown scripts and tools—typically not what most network teams require to support their day-to-day work. We’ve all heard the urban legend: That one company which made automation work flawlessly, with the numbers, metrics, and cost savings that vindicated the investment.

Today, with Infoblox NetMRI, you can make the urban legend your reality. We’re working with real customers with real networks who are realizing the promise of network automation.

Join Empowered Networks to learn how NetMRI can help your team:

  • Discover all network devices in your multi-vendor network; collect, inspect and validate device configurations; and detect changes in real time
  • Identify and correct configuration issues in real time, to improve security posture
  • Simplify or eliminate the integration challenges involved in auto-remediation
  • Demonstrate meaningful improvements in network reliability, cost of operations, and network team productivity

By the end of this session you’ll understand how network auto-remediation is real, can help your network team conquer routine changes and fire-fighting, and can give you the time to address strategic projects that enable your company to compete in the marketplace.

 

NA 104 – ASK THE EXPERTS: TALKING NETWORK AUTOMATION

Presenter:Dave Signori, Senior Director, Product Management (NetMRI, NI), Sif Baksh, Senior Professional Services Engineer, Lou Nardo, Director, Product Marketing (NetMRI), John Belamaric, Software Architect, and Chris Wacker, Senior Staff Software Engineer
Of interest to: Network engineering and operations

This is an open forum for you to ask the product experts for answers on any topic, including best practices, technology under the covers, how the system works, what to avoid, future plans, integration ideas, etc. The panel is made up of product leads, engineers, and field representatives with years of experience in network automation.
