Title: Implementation of an Agile SDLC CI/CD pipeline for managing a SDN VXLAN-EVPN fabric
Keywords: SDN, VxLAN-EVPN, DevOps, CI/CD, network automation

Abstract: In this paper, a DevOps oriented approach to managing a Software Defined Networking (SDN) based massively scalable data center fabric, using automation and software development principles is proposed and implemented. An Agile based methodology for the software development lifecycle (SDLC) of the coded infrastructure is implemented allowing for a flexible workflow compared to the traditional methods like Waterfall. Finally, it is demonstrated how the SDN based fabric can in the same way be extended into the top-of-rack access layer using the same workflow for non-SDN compliant devices, providing a unified method for automated network management and deployment.
