Aruba Fabric Composer (AFC) automates initial provisioning, ongoing configuration, and management of an Aruba ESP Data Center EVPN fabric. AFC’s Guided Setup process configures baseline switch features, underlay addressing and routing, and overlay control and data plane components.
AFC integration with VMware vCenter provides visibility, policy automation, and vCenter configuration of DVS and PVLAN policy components.
AFC enables flexible management of AMD Pensando’s Policy and Services Manager (PSM) firewall policy for the CX 10000 and access control lists available on all switch models. The API-based integration with PSM and CX-series switches allows AFC to provide a single pane of glass for all network-based policy management.
AFC provides a wizard-based microsegmentation policy builder. The end result of AFC’s PSM, switch, and vCenter policy component automation is a model that enables systems administrators to dynamically add a VM to network policy enforcement in their own independent workflows using VM tags.
Additionally, AFC provides ongoing visibility into fabric components. Alerts and troubleshooting tools allow quick identification and resolution to failures in the EVPN fabric.
