Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Tips on Re-Using Network Objects to Automate Connectivity Provisioning for Shared Applications



You likely have many servers in your data center, and many of them can probably be organized and categorize by multiple criteria such as operating system, function, or the network segment where the server will reside etc. In many cases each of these categories requires specific types of services and network access (DNS, NTP, Backup etc.).

In this new educational video, Professor Wool explains how you can create templates – using network objects – for different types of services and network access which are reused used by many different servers in your data center. Using this technique will save you from writing new firewall rules each time you provision or change a server, reduce errors and allow you to provision and expand your server estate more quickly.

Enjoy the video!
