Day One: Deploy a Data Center Fabric with Apstra and Junos®

Design, build, and deploy a robust EVPN/VXLAN data center fabric with Apstra in this book that focuses on Apstra, Juniper’s intent-based data center networking solution. Apstra takes high-level user objectives (intent) and coverts them into Juniper validated, best practice designs. Device configurations are automatically rendered from the design with no user input required. Once deployed, Apstra leverages closed-loop automation and assurance to provide a complete fabric management solution.

The authors provide a step-by-step design, deploy, and maintenence guide to Apstra. You will build a data center fabric and learn the highlights of intent-based networking. Filled with over 150 illustrations, as well as integration examples with Junos devices and external servers, this Day One book takes you right into the lab.

“This marvelous little book fills a much-needed niche for Juniper Apstra: A deep dive into how Apstra works without having to either attend formal training or work your way through the 1000+ page user manual. Presenting a single use case, Adam and Cantemir take you through Apstra from the basics to the subtle details in clear, easy-to- follow examples. If you are considering Apstra, this book gives you a concise first look. If you are a new Apstra user, this book is a perfect guide for coming up to speed." -- Jeff Doyle, Member of Apstra Technical Staff

“This book is the go-to resource for deploying fabrics with Juniper Apstra. It covers all the basics that you need to know about this new fabric management tool and its many examples are easy to follow with step-by-step screen captures. If you are new to Apstra you should definitely give this Day One book a read but it’s also a great reference book for the experienced user. I, for one, learned a great deal.” -- Christian Scholz, Senior Consultant, Axians
