In this post, Gian Paolo Boarina looks at how Cisco Network Assurance Engine can assure the datacenter fabric is working as expected for configuration correctness, endpoints and hardware resources.
All networks have one thing in common; the need to change. However, change is inherently risky.

Programmers and network engineers both need to follow consistent processes to minimize the impact of changes, and this post examines the need for good verification as a pillar of change control.
