Overview

Automation Suites are collections of workflows, actions, sensors and services that target specific networking use-cases, e.g. Data Center Fabric architectures, or Internet Exchanges. They deliver turnkey workflows for provisioning, validation, troubleshooting and remediation workflows.

These are installed on top of Extreme Workflow Composer. Users can install one or more suites. Suites may have dependencies - e.g. the Network Essentials suite is foundational for other suites.

Users may modify these workflows to customise them to their needs.

Network Essentials

Network Essentials is a foundational set of workflows for operating Extreme network devices. It includes actions such as edge port provisioning, ACL management etc. These are basic building blocks that are used by other suites. Customers can also use these blocks to create their own customised workflows.

Starting with v1.2 supports Extreme SLX, VDX and MLXe device families. See more details here.

DC Fabric

The DC Fabric Automation Suite is an add-on package for Extreme Workflow Composer that provides services and pre-built automations for managing Data Center Fabrics - both VCS Fabric and IP Fabric architectures. It includes workflows such as:

  • Manage Fabric Templates
  • Build IP Fabric Infrastructure
  • Manage EVPN Tenants and Edge Ports
  • IP Fabric Validation and Troubleshooting
  • Manage VCS Fabric Tenants and Edge Ports

Starting with v1.2, DC Fabric automation supports all VDX device models, and SLX 9240/9140 switches.
