What does a SODC Deliver?: • Intelligent Management Fabric • Automatic data center infrastructure provisioning based on a set of pre-defined policies/business rules. • On-Demand Utilities • Data center resources are drawn from a shared pool when needed, and returned when not. Business units/application owners are only charged for the resources they consume, eliminating redundant resource expenses. • Rapid Delivery of Services • Cisco’s SODC provisions new processing or storage resources to meet an application's new requirements within minutes, rather than weeks or months. • Resource Optimization • Storage, servers and applications are optimized for maximized reliability, availability and serviceability. • End-to-End Security • Robust, easily managed security solution ensures highly sensitive proprietary data is accessed only by those with appropriate clearance
How does a SODC Support Mission Objectives: • High Availability • Automatic resource provisioning and reduced client-impacting service outage times. • Enhanced Continuity • Intelligent security applications based on data type and criticality ensure robust transmission and monitoring. • Improved Agility • Capacity aligned to demand easily adapts to changing mission requirements and enables scaling on new resources in minutes instead of days. • Lower TCO • Significantly reduce server and data center operating expenses by lowering system administrative overhead, diminishing the number of dedicated compute hosts and utilizing inexpensive commodity hardware.

Architecture Framework Three functional areas map to access control, path isolation, and services edge. Functions Access Control Path Isolation Services Edge Branch - Campus WAN - MAN - Campus Data Center - Campus Identify and authenticate client Isolate into a segment Grant/prevent access Map client VLAN to transport technology Transport client traffic through isolated path Terminate isolated path at destination edge GRE MPLS VRFs Map isolated path to destination VLAN Apply policy at VLAN entry point Isolate application environments Compartment ACompartment BCompartment C
Access Control • Objective • Authenticate users or devices logging onto the network • Process • Identify endpoints • Authorize onto the network through port activation • Associate endpoint to specified user group • Primary authentication scenarios • Client-based authentication for endpoints with client software • Clientless authentication for endpoints without client software
Path Isolation • Objective • Isolate traffic, so that users only have access to designated data and resources • Process • Using separate Layer 2 domains to logically isolate traffic negates scalability and modularity benefits of hierarchical network design • Alternatively, traffic separation can occur in the Layer 3 domain • Distributed access control lists (ACLs) • Overlay of GRE tunnels interconnecting VRFs • VRFs at every hop interconnected with VLAN trunks • MPLS/BGP VPNs GRE MPLS VRFs
Services Edge • Provides mechanisms required for users from different groups to securely access common services • Provides access to user-group-specific services • Provides logical connectivity and security mechanisms over shared facilities
