Goodbye to CloudGenics and hello to PaloAlto's Network Automation Platform
I do think this is the way to go, PaloAlto has created a network they intend to utilize  which offers services ranging from network creation, management, and network control. They are looking to control the highway to create a clean environment the same way Google is.

I have been a proponent of PaloAlto Networks since their inception using AppID and controlling the application, I think this goes right inline with the ability to create networks (as long as the network is consistent - good data in, good data out, this is where CloudGenix comes into play, they use YAML files to create automated SDNs and Physical networks).

I do think with PaloAlto's R&D team, they could improve this CloudGenix process because it looks like it is not polished, more from a DevOps perspective. I did see from the video (CloudGenix, the admin where the admin had to make changes and create variables in the YAML file "type: {switch}"; the application should have done this,  hopefully they can move this process to the next level.

It is an interesting time.
