Microservices architectures are rapidly changing the way applications are being developed. In this
lab we will be introducing Project Contiv, which is an open source project to provide a high level
abstraction of the networking services. Contiv provides a secure framework with a rich policy
framework in order to protect these applications.
This lab will guide the student in the installation of Contiv, and how to integrate Contiv with ACI.
During the lab students will become familiar on how to navigate a container environment and
understand the value of Docker Swarm and be able to deploy a micro services application in an ACI
environment. At the end of the lab students will be able to understand how to deploy a microservices
application in an ACI environment leveraging Project Contiv.

This lab will focus on the installation of Contiv and how Contiv integrates with ACI in order to
showcase the value of having an automated mechanism to communicate application infrastructure
related intents and policies.
