A10 Device Package for Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

This is a deployment guide for the A10 Networks® Device Package for Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). The A10 Networks Device Package allows integration of A10 Networks Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS®) devices (running 4.0) with Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (Cisco APIC). Cisco ACI provides a centralized fabric control and automation framework capable of managing application policies. Within ACI, the Cisco APIC serves as the single point of automation and fabric element management in both physical and virtual environments. A10 Networks aCloud™ Services Architecture is integrated into the Cisco ACI application policy framework through a plugin also referred to as Device Package. The Device Package allows Cisco ACI to communicate with devices and deploy policies automatically.
