Cisco UCS Director 5.3.0 automation for StorMagic SvSAN 5.3/UCS Mini Solution summary

Improve consistency, efficiency, speed and agility within ROBO environments

Organizations with remote sites typically have limited IT resource to dedicate to the delivery and management of their remote IT infrastructure. With hundreds or thousands of remote sites, this could mean that frequent, manual, time-consuming or complex tasks can take up considerable resources, reducing the ability to pursue new IT projects or divert resources when urgent issues arise.

Cisco UCS® Director 5.3.0 provides visual, easy-to-use automation for heterogeneous environments, providing a unified view of the entire infrastructure resources. It works by abstracting hardware and software into programmable tasks, spanning hypervisor, compute, network, and storage infrastructure components. Tasks are used to create workflows that can automate common tasks through to entire infrastructure deployments.

Designed to work seamlessly with best-in-class Cisco UCS servers, Cisco UCS Director 5.3.0 can help users of the Cisco UCS Mini Hardware using UCS Manager 3.0 and StorMagic SvSAN 5.3 solution achieve more within a VMware ESXi 5.5 environment. Cisco and StorMagic’s enterprise-class software-defined storage solution delivers highly available shared storage for critical applications on site, while addressing the familiar challenges of better performance and application availability.
