Product Release 3.0

Table of Contents

Introduction

This document provides guidelines for ordering the software and license components needed to deploy Cisco ® Application Networking Manager (ANM) 3.0.
Cisco ANM software is part of the Cisco ACE Application Control Engine product family and is a crucial component of any data center or cloud computing architecture that requires centralized configuration, operation, and monitoring of Cisco data center networking equipment and services. Cisco ANM provides this management capability for the Cisco ACE devices, as well as operations management for the Cisco Content Services Switch (CSS), Cisco Content Switching Module (CSM), Cisco Content Switching Module with SSL (CSM-S), and Cisco ACE Global Site Selector (GSS).

Product Numbers

Cisco ANM 3.0 consists of three main components: the base software, licensing for device management, and licensing for virtual contexts where applicable. A fourth component is the high-availability option, which enables a warm-standby Cisco ANM server to run in parallel with the primary Cisco ANM server.
Cisco ANM is licensed based on the number and types of devices to be managed, and where applicable, the number of additional virtual contexts licensed per Cisco ACE device. Cisco ANM must always be ordered for production use, including the base Cisco ANM server software and ANM high-availability (HA) server software. Additional licensing beyond the base Cisco ANM server software may be required depending on the number of devices to be managed and whether any Cisco ACE devices with additional virtual context licenses are installed (even if the devices are not yet in use). Cisco GSS support is included in the Cisco ANM server software and does not require separate licensing.
Table 1 lists the Cisco ANM 3.0 part numbers. The Cisco ANM high-availability product is an optional product for implementation of a high-availability standby server. The part numbers for the Cisco ANM high-availability option are listed in Table 2.

Cisco ANM Licensing Components

The Cisco ANM product family is defined by four components:

Base server software: ANM-SERVER-30-K9 is the required base product (which is priced at US$0).

Device-count expansion licenses: Part numbers ANM-AD-nnn are the base software products for Cisco ACE devices. Select the size or combination appropriate for the number of Cisco ACE devices to be managed. A single Cisco ANM server can manage from 5 to 50 Cisco ACE devices, using part numbers ANM-AD-005, -010, -020, or -050. For example, if seven Cisco ACE devices are to be managed, then the managing Cisco ANM server will require installation of either two ANM-AD-005 licenses or one ANM-AD-010 license.

Virtual context expansion licenses: Part numbers ANM-AV-nnn are the virtual context licenses for Cisco ACE devices. These licenses must match 1:1 with the Cisco ACE virtual contexts licenses on a per-device basis. For example, if seven Cisco ACE devices each have ACE-VIRT-050 installed, then the managing Cisco ANM server will require installation of seven ANM-AV-050 licenses.

Management server high-availability (HA) licenses: Use complementary part numbers ending with `H' to set up a hot-standby Cisco ANM server, with licenses at a significant discount.

Licensing

Cisco ANM 3.0 implements server-locked licensing with enforcement that requires license keys. To simplify key creation and installation, customers expanding their Cisco ANM installations should order options under ANM-LICENSE-PAK or ANM-LICENSE-PAK-H for each Cisco ANM server to which they want to add capability. For new installations, customers should order options under ANM-SERVER-30-K9 for each server they want to install.
The number of licenses for a given deployment will be determined based on the number of managed devices and the number of additional virtual contexts on those managed devices. The licensing of devices is independent of the use of those devices in redundant configurations (device high availability).
ANM-SERVER-30-K9 is a free software package and is the required component of Cisco ANM, the base software application. This is a full-featured version of Cisco ANM but is limited to management of only two Cisco ACE devices (modules or appliances) with the default number of virtual contexts (five). This package also includes operations support for the full capacity (three clusters) of Cisco GSS devices. The application must be run on a customer-supplied server, and the web browser client is run by the end user on a workstation.
ANM-SERVER-30-K9, without any additional ACE device licenses supports two Cisco ACE devices. When the first additional ACE device license is installed on the Cisco ANM server the total number of manageable ACE devices is based on the additional ACE device license. For example if the first additional ACE device license installed is ANM-AD-005, the number of ACE devices that can be managed changes from 2 to 5.
After this first additional ACE device license, all subsequently added ACE device licenses expand the number of managed devices additively. A server with a license for 5 Cisco ACE devices can manage a total of 5 Cisco ACE devices, not 7. A server with a license for 5 Cisco ACE devices and another license for 10 Cisco ACE devices can manage 15 Cisco ACE devices.
All managed device licenses for CSS, CSM and CSM-S are additive. A server with 2 licenses for 10 Cisco CSS, CSM, or CSM-S devices can manage 20 of those devices.
Additional Cisco ACE virtual context licenses are required on a per-device basis. Additional Cisco ANM virtual context licenses for each managed Cisco ACE device must match or be greater than the virtual context licenses on the Cisco ACE device itself, regardless of the number of virtual contexts actually created or used on the device.
Regardless of the licensing installed, any one server can manage only a fixed number of devices. For configurations requiring more than that number of devices, more than one Cisco ANM server is required.

• Each Cisco ANM server can support up to 50 Cisco ACE devices.

• Each Cisco ANM server can support up to 40 Cisco CSS, CSM, and CSM-S devices.

• Each Cisco ANM server can support up to 3 Cisco GSS clusters running Cisco GSS Software 3.0(2) or higher.

These maximums may be met simultaneously on the same Cisco ANM server depending on the scope and frequency of user and configuration operations, configuration size, and level of monitoring performed.
An evaluation license enables Cisco ANM 3.0 to manage the maximum number of devices and the maximum number of virtual contexts for 90 days, allowing you to evaluate these uses prior to purchasing licenses for production use. (See "Ordering Process: Evaluation License" later in this guide.)

For More Information

This document provides pricing and ordering information for Cisco ANM 3.0.
For additional information, please see:

• Cisco Application Networking Manager product page (external): http://www.cisco.com/go/anm

• Product inquiries (external): ask-anm@cisco.com

Ordering Examples

Cisco ANM 3.0 uses the same pricing and licensing model as Cisco ANM 2.0. The following two substitutions are the only changes from ANM 2.0 versions to ANM 3.0 versions:

• For "ANM-SERVER-20-K9," substitute "ANM-SERVER-30-K9."

• For "ANM-SERVER-30-H-K9," substitute "ANM-SERVER-30-H-K9."

Two Cisco ACE Modules with Default Virtual Contexts

Entry-Level Cisco ANM

Example Order 1
Customer plans to use two Cisco ACE 8-GB modules with the included five virtual contexts each.
Although an embedded manager is not available on the Cisco ACE Modules, since customer is managing just two Cisco ACE devices with the default number of virtual contexts (five), the entry-level Cisco ANM is all that is needed.
Customer can load the entry-level Cisco ANM on the server the customer provides to manage these two devices.
Customer should order:
1 ANM-SERVER-30-K9 from Cisco.com for no charge.

Two Cisco ACE 4710 Appliances with Default Virtual Contexts

Entry Level Cisco ANM (for Appliance)

Example Order #2
Customer plans to use one or two ACE 2G appliance with the included five Virtual Contexts each.
Customer can either use the embedded device manager to manage each appliance separately or customer can load the entry level Cisco ANM on server they provide.
Customer should order:
Use embedded device manager for no charge
-or-
Qty. 1 of ANM-SERVER-30-K9 from CCO for no charge

More Than Two Cisco ACE Devices and Additional Virtual Contexts

Cisco ANM for ACE
Example Order #3
Customer plans to use four ACE 8G modules, two ACE 4G modules and two ACE 2G appliances. They have added ACE license for 50 Virtual Contexts on the four 8G ACE modules. All are paired in Active-Standby configurations.
From Cisco ANM perspective, it doesn't matter if these modules and appliances will be run with or without ACE HA options (such as Active-Active, Active-Standby) as each is counted individually for management.
There are 8 devices to be managed, so ANM-AD-010 is selected for the level of Cisco ANM based software.
The default Virtual Contexts are included in the price of ANM-SERVER device support, but customer needs to purchase Virtual Context license expansions for 50 VCs on the four 8G modules.
Customer should order:
Qty. 1 of ANM-SERVER-30-K9
Qty. 1 of ANM-AD-010
Qty. 4 of ANM-AV-050

Adding to an Existing Cisco ANM Server
