Users stay informed of of the status and limits of resources assigned to them. This includes lifecycle management to control consumption.
Administrators have greater control with discovery and visibility, and the ability to make real-time changes.
Included functionality for network services management can simplify the provisioning of complex network environments.
Prebuilt automation packs and tools for configuring services and workflows speed time to deployment and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Unified Cloud Management and Orchestration
This powerful solution complements the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as well as other Cisco and non-Cisco products and partner technology solutions. So while the software is optimized for Cisco architectures, it can be integrated with your organization's existing systems, service management tools, operational processes, and infrastructure from multiple vendors.
By partnering with Cisco for your cloud deployment, your organization will benefit from a unified cloud management platform that delivers increased speed, responsiveness, user satisfaction, and operational efficiency.
