NVIDIA NEO User Manual and Release Notes v2.7.20

NVIDIA® NEO® is a powerful platform for managing scale-out computing networks. NEO enables data center operators to efficiently provision, monitor and operate the modern data center fabric. NEO serves as interface to the fabric, thus extending existing tools capabilities into monitoring and provisioning the data center network. NEO uses an extensive set of REST APIs to allow access to fabric-related data and provisioning activities. NEO eliminates the complexity of fabric management. It automates the configuration of devices, provides deep visibility into traffic and health, and provides early detection of errors and failures.
