INTEGRATION:

Ansible and Dell EMC Networking

DELL EMC NETWORKING

Dell EMC Networking Solutions are based on an open ecosystem, enabling organizations to chose from industry-standard network applications, network operating systems and network hardware. These Open Networking solutions enable IT managers to build an application-agnostic infrastructure and simplify data center management with standard automation tools, like Ansible and standards-based open platforms.

Integrated Solution

The Ansible modules for Dell EMC Networking Solutions enable IT administrators to configure and maintain the state of network platforms running OS10, OS9 and OS6. Working with Ansible reinforces Dell EMC’s message of creating a more efficient and agile infrastructure through network automation.

Using Ansible to provision and manage your Dell EMC switches will allow you to rapidly deploy new devices, change network configurations and track running network device configurations against a known baseline both for Dell EMC as well as third-party OSes.

SOLUTION BENEFITS

The Ansible modules for Dell EMC Networking Solutions allow organizations to use open-source tools such as Ansible to minimize costly engineering overhead and help reduce the time and effort required to design, provision and manage networks in the following ways:

  • Agentless: No new software to install on your switches

  • Powerful: End-to-end automation of configuration from bare metal switches using the Dell EMC Open Automation framework

  • Easy: Dell EMC Networking modules ship with the Ansible distribution. There is nothing extra to install anywhere

  • Best Practice: Leverages CLI user authentication to centralize and monitor session management

  • Flexible: Full support of Ansible model for Networking: command, configuration and facts
