"Cisco ACI is the automation your data center needs"

What do you like best?

Its strong point for me and that deserves prominence is its ability to link server provisioning tools, storage provisioning tools, to an orchestration platform, to streamline new deployments and builds..

What do you dislike?

Cisco aci is a great program, but if it were to quote something that can still improve a bit is the user interface screen, it could be a bit more intuitive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ACI helped our company solve its problem with the lack of data center automation, with it solved the problem of network integration with the implementation of IT services in a fully automated service chain, saving us all the work and also saving time.

"Improve your agility and flexibility with Cisco ACI"

What do you like best?

The ability to manage the data center fabric from a single interface and/or by making calls to the API. It's much simpler to manage the data center from a single pane of glass. The flexibility I have in breaking up my endpoints into endpoint groups. The increased security. The ability to automate processes. The ability to integrate with other Cisco devices as well as 3rd party products; such as Firewalls and Load Balancers. The integration with hypervisors (for instance VMware) is outstanding. The overall increased visibility and flexibility I have in the data center fabric.

What do you dislike?

It's not that I don't dislike anything about the product, it just takes the time to learn it. The concepts are so different than what we are used to in Networking. It takes personal commitment and training. I think Cisco could make the interface a little more streamlined and easier to use. It takes the time to understand the flow of configuring things in the fabric.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure include:

* Reducing provisioning time of data center resources from days to minutes

* Improving ability to deliver on service level agreements (SLAs)

* Configuring infrastructure more quickly

* Using an application delivery model that is more in line with today’s workforce

* Reducing errors and overhead

"Cisco"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, basic, user friendly. has been around for a while. i like that it is simple and all you have to do is log in and go, there is nothing to setup or validate for every day use.

What do you dislike?

Old school, not always working consistency. sometimes there are errors causing it to disconnect and if i don't notice it is disconnected, it is not tracking my usage which is an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is user friendly however it does have the tendency of not being consistent. I would say it's okay for basic every day use for a low level company, but for a larger fortune 500 company I hope that there would be a better option, as this is not always consistent. Also, Cisco has been around for quite a while and their customer service is pretty good if you ever need assistance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to use but seems out of date. There are better systems available that may not have as many glitches as this often does. I don't like that is disconnects and does not fix itself.

"Cisco ACI is extremely efficient"

What do you like best?

I like how Api Rest allows you to programmatically interact with the network and make massive changes very quickly, making the task much easier.Another positive point is the telemetry around applications.

What do you dislike?

We had some bugs with user errors, causing the fabric to be in a practically irrecoverable state and the TAC did not always have the ability to correct delaying the task.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have several data centers running a mix of FabricPath, Catalyst and ACI. We have a data center that has been around for a few years that's only ACI and are starting to roll ACI out to additional data centers now that we've solidified the design/architecture.

"The Automation of the Datacenter"

What do you like best?

Cisco ACI is the NGDC (Next Generation of DataCenter), it helps with the automation of all your task in the datacenter

What do you dislike?

Cisco ACI uses a new software/interface, so you have to renew your knowledge about Datacenter, because the way to manage ACI is very different of you did in the past with Catalyst.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Cisco ACI API integrations

- CIsco ACI Tenant Isolation

- Cisco ACI Micro/Macro Segmentation

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cisco ACI has helped me to automate some task in datacenter, deploy a lot of tasks integred with other tools thanks of APIs. Thanks of Tenants design inside Cisco ACI, you can mix all your customers networks with the same network addressing in an isolated Tenant...
