Steve Sharman is a Technical Solution Architect with the Cisco EMEAR Data Center team, based in London. Since joining Cisco in 1998, Steve has held roles of Systems Engineer, Consulting Systems Engineer and Technical Solutions Architect, covering enterprise and service provider customers across the EMEAR region with a specific focus on Data Center solutions.


ACI has been designed to work extremely well with a multitude of automation tools, including those from open source communities or even non-Cisco vendors. In this session we will look at using Ansible with ACI. We will cover the basics, including the embedded ACI modules in the Ansible distribution. Then we will complete the event with some demonstrations on a real ACI fabric, showing how to configure several tenant options plus building VMM Domain integration.
