This session will answer these questions by helping you understand how to approach datacenter automation based on specific criteria. It will also provide guidance on which automation product you should be using… and which ones to avoid. Finally, this session will offer you some practical tips to ensure that your automation journey is a successful one, and tell you where to find additional resources to get a deeper understanding of the described concepts.
