Ensure Networks for ACI
Ensure Networks for ACI is an architectural support subscription program that provides actionable deliverables to help your organization optimize your infrastructure as your business grows and evolves. The deliverables provided by Ensure Networks are a combination of scheduled and on-demand events with BTA architects/engineers across all domains within the Data Center including but not limited to automation, security, virtualization, compute, storage, application optimization and business continuity as it relates to ACI.
Scheduled deliverables are coordinated with your team by a BTA Delivery Manager. These occur weekly, monthly, and quarterly based on our experience with over 400 production ACI deployments. BTA provides documented outputs including but not limited to ACI health and capacity reports, best practice recommendations, and as-built documentation updates. Deliverable outputs are reviewed with your team periodically.
On-Demand deliverables are workshops or new ACI use case consulting covered under the umbrella agreement. BTA provides architectural guidance for migration planning, migration documentation reviews, and migration windows as you prepare and move workloads into ACI. On-Demand engagements also help your team with architectural guidance during interrupt driven events like a problem in which you've engaged Cisco TAC. We bring the system wide view of not only ACI but the integration touchpoints with the systems that connect with and interoperate with ACI.
Whether the deliverables are scheduled or on-demand the BTA Ensure Networks team is available to assist your organization through your ACI Fabric journey.
