11-07, 13:00–15:00 (Europe/Berlin), Workshop Room 4

From 0 to a full blown EVPN/VXLAN leaf-spine datacenter deployment in <2h? Sounds like a fairy tale.
In this workshop Patrick will show you interactively (participants get there own enviornment) how to define and configure a datacenter design in YAML and Ansible based on the Arista Validated Deisgn. It includes a set of ansible roles and modules to help kick-start your automation.

What should participants bring to your workshop?
  • Unrestricted internet access
  • Knowledge of Linux
  • Understanding of networking (VLAN/VXLAN/EVPN)
  • Browser (ideally Chrome/Chromium)
