Cisco: Principles of Application Centric Infrastructure

Question-mark Attending Cisco Live 2014 in San Francisco this week?

Well, get ready to hear a lot about ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure). It's almost here and its everywhere. And the acronyms, holy crap, get ready to get hit upside the head with of ton of those that you have never heard before. Cisco is only a close second to VMware when it comes to their love of acronyms.


Here are a couple of them that I have heard for the first time today.

  • APIC
  • VTEP
  • EPG

Anyway – here is Cisco's primer on ACI. Its a good read and might help you wrap your head around a few subjects before you head full bore into your sessions.
