Networking Should be this Easy
As a network engineer, you should be able to quickly design, build and operate a modern L3 fabric while still being able to place any L2 workload (virtual, physical, or containerized) anywhere in that fabric. You should be able to easily stretch your L2 segments across the fabric using VXLAN.
You should be able to shrink and grow the fabric capacity easily. As a network operator, you should be able to quickly extract the insight, not just the raw telemetry you need, from both the underlay and overlay and correlate between the two. You should be able to swap out vendor A’s underlay devices with vendor B’s in minutes.
You should be free to execute any of the tasks above regardless of the underlay or overlay vendor you’re deploying. AOS 2.0 allows you to do that, and much, much more. It renders your intent into the expected network state and continuously validates the operating state of your network. If there is any deviation between the two states, AOS tells you where the deviation is and what needs to be fixed.
