Network Automation at scale: up and running in 60 minutes
Meeting: NANOG69
Date / Time: 2017-02-06 4:00pm - 5:30pm
This item is webcast
Room: Independence Ballroom I-F (5B Level)
Presenters: Speakers:
Jerome Fleury, CloudFlare.

Mircea Ulinic, CloudFlare, Inc.

Mircea works as network engineer for Cloudflare, spending most of his time writing code for network automation. Sometimes he likes to talk about the stuff he's working on and how automation really helps to maintain reliable, stable and self-resilient one of the biggest global networks. Previously, he was involved in research and later worked for EPFL in Switzerland and an European service provider based in France. Besides networking, he has a strong passion for radio communications (especially mobile networks), mathematics and physics.
Abstract: In this tutorial we will see how easy is today to implement the automation methodologies in our multi-vendor networks, no matter the size! We will see how to install the tools, setup the environment and then use.
Without diving into the programability level, we will focus mainly on the usability and how network engineers can achieve the goals of network automation without getting lost in complex systems, programming languages, encryption systems, databases etc.
