What are the 6 Elements for the Cisco ACI Logical Model?

Cisco is arguably the leader in the software-defined networking world. So, network administrators must understand how the software-defined network in a Cisco environment is structured and operates. The Cisco ACI requires a different approach to the logical hierarchy of a network compared to other methods of networking. To fully understand this approach, network administrators need to fully realize the 6 different logical elements in the network. These elements are:

  • Tenant

  • VRF

  • Bridge Domain

  • Application Profile

  • End Point Group

  • Contracts

Each of these elements is tasked with controlling a specific piece of the network puzzle. For instance, the Tenant element is a logical container that allows for separation for administrative domain-level control. One example of this might be a separation of departments where applications and services for an accounting department can be separated from applications and services for an HR department.

Understanding each of these six elements fully will help network engineers design and maintain a software-defined network within Cisco's ACI.
