BRKCDN-1117 - Virtualized Router & Virtualization Inside A Branch Router (2013 London)Virtualization is prevalent everywhere, in Data centers, in Cloud environments regardless it’s a public, private or hybrid and none the least in branch offices. Cisco is innovating in all fronts from bringing virtualization to the branch offices by building a blade server that can be hosted inside Integrated Services Router Generation 2 (ISR G2) and taking it’s industry leading routing foot print in Cloud. How does both these technologies help customers? In Branch offices by collapsing a blade server (Unified Computing System E-Series) inside a router we optimize network / compute foot print, drastically reduce total cost of ownership, simplify manageability and enable the platform to run not only Cisco appliances as virtual machines but simultaneously enable 3rd party application coexistence. In Cloud environments, customer today lack control over routing, have a primitive and fixed security framework being offered which is un-orchestrated and unmanaged by their enterprise tools and have no way of using enhanced services. Cisco’s Cloud Services Router CSR1000V removes all the limitations and restrictions and enables enterprise customers to move to Cloud seamlessly. Customers can now run a virtualized router in various cloud provider environments along with their applications. Come and learn how these technologies are creating a new deployment model within enterprise branch offices as well as in public / private clouds.

BRKAPP-2005 - Deploying Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) (2012 San Diego)Due to poor performance for remote employees, application owners have resorted to distributing their compute resources, implementing terminal services, or rewriting the applications. These options are costly in terms of capital investment, licenses, data protection, engineering, and operations. In addition, IT organizations have been asked to cut costs through consolidation and virtualization. Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) enables consolidation, data protection, simplified operations, and lower ownership costs for applications and the network. This session will show how to leverage Cisco WAAS for application acceleration, server virtualization through the virtual blade technology, and data center to data center replication. Deployment topics will include WAAS tuning, sizing, network integration (WCCP and in-line), standard branch topologies, data center topologies, scaling, monitoring, and management best practices.
BRKCDN-1012 - Building a Graphical Web-based Application for Managing Cisco IOS Devices (2012 San Diego)Using features already included with Cisco IOS, it is possible to build
graphical, web-based applications for managing Cisco IOS devices. The features of Embedded Event Manager (EEM), IP Service Level Agreements (IP-SLA), and TCL scripting language make it possible. The resulting applications can be used for troubleshooting and monitoring and can be very flexible. Since the applications are web server-based, they are easy to deploy and do not require any software installation on the client side. The applications run entirely within Cisco IOS devices and no external devices are needed. The applications can be quicky customized to suit the needs of specific end users.
Examples will show different types of applications that may be created and can be used as starting points for new applications. One example will show the creation of IP SLA probes from a web page, which can then capture the history of results from the user-created probe. Next, the history is graphically presented in a line graph showing the results.
Another example demonstrates the ability to configure different types of MPLS tunnels. The tunnels may be shut down or brought up, and the tunnels are presented graphically. The tunnels change colors depending upon their current up or down state. Finally, the user can initiate a ping across the tunnels and graphically present a line graph showing the results.

COCDCT-3468 - Inside Cisco IT: Private Cloud Architecture Designed for Business Continuity (2012 San Diego)The private cloud is one of today’s fastest growing data center solutions, and the significance of a secure architecture for business applications agnostic to the infrastructure is increasing. Cisco IT is building the foundation for business resiliency; however, resiliency at every layer of the business environment requires a holistic approach to managing and orchestrating infrastructure, platform, and application resources within a data center and across multiple data centers. This enables Cisco IT to automate delivery of end-to-end data center and infrastructure services to the business.
Cisco IT has been a fundamental driver in building and adapting the suite of management tools needed to orchestrate virtual data center infrastructure needed to deliver business services. Attendees will learn how Cisco IT is designing and deploying these next-generation virtual orchestration solutions and directions for cloud services management.
Cisco IT is migrating all its traditional data center applications to a radically simplified virtual infrastructure. This has significantly reduced the number of network and server devices and the cable overhead within the data center, while also speeding deployment time and overall application deployment agility. We have aggressively deployed Cisco Unified Computing System servers and Nexus physical and virtual switches, OTV, and Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud to provide cloud services inside Cisco.
Attendees will learn about the difficulties involved in migrating a heterogeneous set of applications to an internal private cloud. Attendees will also hear Cisco IT’s initial results of this server platform migration in terms of cost savings as well as enabling more reliable data center architectures at an acceptable cost. Additionally, we can share Cisco IT’s early experience in creating and expanding cloud services within the enterprise.
