Cisco Launches Industry’s Broadest Networking Programming Environment with Its New Nexus® 9000 Product Line
November 6th, 2013
Today’s networks are restricted to configuration programming via CLI, but what if applications can call upon network resources automatically or if application developers are provided access to network state, topology, performance and other information? How might applications change and user experience improve? How may a networking programmable environment enable automated provisioning, orchestration and management? Could a programmable network enable a new era of IT and an industry of network aware applications just when the Internet of Things is starting to emerge? The Cisco Nexus® 9000 product line provides a wide range of programming options through an enhanced version of the Nexus Operating System (or NX-OS) that ranges from APIs to direct programming via its built-in Linux BASH environment, RPC, RESTful APIs, JSON, Python etc. I’m joined by Bradley Wong, Distinguished Engineer, Technical Marketing at Cisco, as we review the Cisco Nexus programming environment, its programming options provided to developers, use cases and potential industry impact.
