Python for Network Engineers – Data Center Use Cases
Welcome to Python for Network Engineers Series
In this course will be focusing on Automating Data Center Networks using Python.
The approach of this course is to learn Data Center Networking Technologies, then understand how we apply automation and programmability using high end Data Center Network Appliances such as Arista, Cisco Nexus 9000, F5 BIG-IP and Kubernetes.
Learn the basics of Python and understand how API works! This course provides you at least 40 python sample scripts designed to automate hundreds of network devices!
The set-up is simple. We have few switches a Linux server where all the python scripts are hosted.
Easiest way to understand Python Network Automation. No need to learn Netmiko, Napalm, Ansible and Paramiko. Automation is all about API!
Lastly, we will also learn how automate complex configuration such as MLAG/VPC and VXLAN.
Some the python scripts used are designed for an extremely large data center environment!
