Achieving agility is a paramount importance for enterprise IT today and one key area many companies are turning to for this is deploying higher degrees of network automation. This has led to the rise of software-defined networking (SDN), which is designed to drive automation and programmability network-wide. Cisco, the undisputed leader in networking today, has seized on this important market transition with its unique, application-centric approach namely, appropriately enough, the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).

Load balancers and application delivery controllers have one critical job.  No, it's not distributing clients across servers, though that is an important aspect of their job.  At its core, a load balancer's task is to reduce risk.  One of the most common vectors for the introduction of risk is the complexity of a system, such as a legacy load balancer.

jetengineTake an example of a jet engine.  It is comprised of numerous components, each adding its own complexity and potential for failure.  By taking advantage of new technologies, such as 3D printing, GE has been able to reduce their jet engine's 25 part fuel injection nozzle down to a single part.  This helps reduce cost, time to market, and complexity from the overall system, which also improves the reliability of the engine.  At its core, it reduces risk. In the context of application delivery and load balancing, what if a single button can guarantee optimal SSL security settings or maximize application acceleration?

As some of you may be aware, a major security breach was reported at a well-known multinational company - we'll refer to them as Company X - on November 24, 2014. In the breach, their servers’ private keys and SSH keys were stolen. Among others, using the stolen keys, the attacker(s) can attempt to decrypt confidential data they may have collected in the past.
