This begins an extensive series describing the activities necessary to completely configure an automation portal (network configuration tool portal) based on Model/View/Controller/NoSQL principals. For the example lab in this series, I have created a completely Linux based virtual lab providing a portal for automating BGP black hole advertisement to full (Linux based) BGP speakers.
Please bear in mind that while this series specifically describes all the steps necessary to configure the virtual lab described above, the series is more significant in conveying all of the virtual lab foundational components and the general methodologies necessary to build a model-view-controller based automation portal.
