ACI

Application Centric Infrastructure
ACI is the Cisco SDN solution. ACI uses a policy controller to orchestrate network connectivity within the data center. The solution rests on a physical network fabric based on clos or leaf and spine architecture to allow ECMP routing between any to endpoints. The fabric is currently based on the Nexus 9K platform and uses a pure L3 IP based network with ISIS for internal communication and BGP for external connectivity
