Product overview

Cisco Intersight® Infrastructure Service is an infrastructure lifecycle management solution delivered as-a-service or as a connected or private virtual appliance. It helps IT operations teams see, control, and automate their compute, storage, and networking infrastructure—wherever it is—from one place. Intersight Infrastructure Service is a core module of the Cisco Intersight IT operations platform that provides a single dashboard for managing and automating your global infrastructure throughout its lifecycle. Intersight Infrastructure Service supports the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) and Cisco HyperFlex® hyperconverged infrastructure, Cisco® networking platforms, virtualization and container platforms, third-party servers and storage, and other integration endpoints. Because it is SaaS software, Intersight Infrastructure Service functionality increases and expands with weekly releases.

With Intersight Infrastructure Service, you get all of the benefits of SaaS delivery and full lifecycle management of distributed infrastructure and workloads across data centers, remote sites, branch offices, and edge environments. This empowers you to deploy, configure, secure, update, maintain, automate, and scale your environment through a cloud-operating model in ways that were not previously possible. As a result, your organization can operate with consistency and control, stay in compliance, and strengthen your security posture to deliver IT infrastructure, resources, and applications faster to support business growth.

For Cisco infrastructure, Intersight Infrastructure Service works in conjunction with Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC), and Cisco HyperFlex Connect. In addition, Intersight Infrastructure Service integrates with third-party storage, servers, virtualization, and other SaaS services. You can simply associate a model-based configuration to provision servers and associated storage and fabric automatically, regardless of form factor. Using profiles, IT staff can consistently align policy, server personality, and workloads. These policies can be created once and used to simplify server deployments, resulting in improved productivity and compliance, and lower risk of failures due to inconsistent configuration. In addition, Cisco provides integrations to third-party operations tools, such as ServiceNow, to allow customers to use their existing solutions more efficiently.

Intersight is my best friend. We use it daily, if not hourly, to manage globally distributed infrastructure and workloads. No more logs, no more spreadsheets.

Flexible deployment options

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service is SaaS software with the flexibility of advanced deployment options. You can take advantage of new features as they become available from Cisco without the challenges and complexity of maintaining your management tools.

The majority of our users enjoy the benefits of full SaaS management from Intersight instances in the eastern United States and Germany. Users can connect Cisco infrastructure directly to Intersight and connect third-party systems through a Cisco Intersight Assist on-premises appliance (more details below). However, if you have data locality or security needs for managing systems that may not accommodate a full SaaS model, you can leverage the on-premises Cisco Intersight Connected Virtual Appliance to connect those systems.

Alternately, the Cisco Intersight Private Virtual Appliance provides an easy way to deploy a VMware Open Virtual Appliance (OVA), which can be configured, deployed, and run on-premises without an internet connection. The Private Virtual Appliance allows you to take advantage of much of the SaaS functionality without connectivity back to Both the Intersight Connected Virtual Appliance and Private Virtual Appliance provide advantages over conventional on-premises management tools.

Cisco Intersight Assist

The Cisco Intersight Assist enables you to claim third-party infrastructure, platforms, and other endpoints that are not directly SaaS-connected to Intersight, so they can become Intersight-managed. For example, you can use Intersight Assist to manage VMware, NetApp, Pure, Hitachi, and other on-premises infrastructure and platforms. Cisco Intersight Assist is deployed as a VM appliance running on premises, installed using an OVA that is available on To learn more details about how Intersight Assist extends Intersight management to on-premises, third-party infrastructure and platforms, visit our help site. To learn how to install Cisco Intersight Assist, watch this video.

Monitoring and capacity planning

To support the complex environments created by modern applications and the dramatically increasing number of infrastructure endpoints, enterprises require analytics integrated tightly with their operations management tools. To enable these analytics capabilities, every Cisco UCS server, Cisco HyperFlex system, or Cisco UCS Director instance is configured to automatically connect and transmit to Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service certain telemetry information over a secure channel (including serial numbers and IP addresses, the versions of Cisco software installed on an endpoint, and feature-use data).

Users can employ this data to monitor the health status and performance of fabric interconnects and UCS servers using out-of-the-box dashboards. They can browse real-time and historical device metrics and telemetry data to troubleshoot problems in depth, forecast and budget resources, and find intrinsic correlations in dispersed data. For example, they can troubleshoot UCS domain network issues by checking hardware status, server port metrics, and network uplinks to identify potential issues between servers and fabric interconnects and the upstream network. Or they can conduct capacity planning by viewing overall average utilization of fabric interconnect uplink ports over a defined time period. Then they can verify link capacity to add more chassis to an existing UCS environment.

In addition, users can create custom health and performance dashboards using filters and a library of widgets.​

Users also can monitor and track server power and energy consumption. For example, they can analyze server energy consumption by searching and viewing power consumption by individual servers and overall energy consumption of the global server environment. They can drill down by device using filters to see details such as top energy consumers. Then they can export data for reports, presentations, and analysis in CSV files or using the Intersight API.

Enhanced automation and orchestration

Model-based deployment

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service provides model-based deployment for Cisco and third-party compute, network, storage, integrated systems, virtualization, and containers. For example, a Cisco UCS C-Series rack server can be set up quickly and easily by replicating an existing server profile for rapid configuration. The model-based deployment works for a single system in a remote location or hundreds of systems in a data center to enable rapid, standardized configuration and deployment. Similarly, HyperFlex platforms can be sent to their destination, have basic internet connectivity established locally, and then be configured and set up remotely through the cloud-based HyperFlex installer.

Automation and workflow orchestration

Intersight Infrastructure Service includes a drag-and-drop automation and workflow designer to create and execute complex workflows of operational tasks across Intersight-managed Cisco and third-party compute, network, storage, integrated systems, virtualization, and containers. A central workflow engine sequences the steps in workflows and automates their execution. A workflow executes a set of tasks, each designed to automate specific operations (for example, create, read, update, or delete) on any infrastructure or platform element. Workflows can consist of one or more tasks arranged to execute sequentially, repeatedly, in parallel, or conditionally, or they can include sub-workflows to help organize or reuse automation.

Users can select from a library of prebuilt tasks that automate popular operations across Cisco and third-party compute, network, storage, integrated systems, virtualization, and containers. These prebuilt library tasks are preintegrated with access to infrastructure models, inventory, and configuration information managed within Intersight to simplify task configuration and workflow creation. For example, to automate configuration of a VM property, a preintegrated task can enable the author to select which VM to operate on from the existing inventory of VMs that user can access. The preintegrated modeling could allow a workflow author to easily traverse to that VM’s parent hypervisor host for additional configuration, the parent server operating the hypervisor, networks attached to that server, etc. Preintegrated configuration information also allows the orchestration author to control automation by other criteria.

In addition to the preintegrated automation task library, you can create your own custom tasks with the task designer using a variety of open integration methods such as constructing HTTP-based API calls, executing Ansible playbooks, PowerShell, or SSH.

A variety of workflows for popular orchestration use cases are included. You can also modify existing workflows or create your own using the workflow designer. The drag-and-drop designer makes it easy to assemble preintegrated tasks, custom tasks, and sub-workflows along with conditional statements and loops to construct any end-to-end orchestration you need across Cisco and third-party compute, network, storage, integrated systems, virtualization, and containers. For more information on automation and workflow orchestration, visit our help site.

Cisco HyperFlex cluster deployment

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service provides an installation wizard to install, configure, and deploy Cisco HyperFlex Edge and HyperFlex with fabric interconnect clusters. The wizard constructs a preconfiguration definition of your cluster, called a HyperFlex cluster profile. This definition is a logical representation of the HyperFlex nodes in your HyperFlex cluster. HyperFlex cluster profiles are built on policies that define sets of rules and operating characteristics, such as node identity, interfaces, and network connectivity. After gathering the node configuration settings to build a HyperFlex cluster profile, the installation wizard validates and deploys the HyperFlex cluster profile. More information is available on our help site.


Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service includes an API based on the OpenAPI specification, a powerful definition format to describe RESTful APIs. Support for the OpenAPI specification provides users with access to an interoperable REST API with tools that automate the generation of the Intersight API documentation, API schemas, and SDKs. The Intersight API includes fully functional Python and PowerShell SDKs.

The API is an integral part of the broader open connector framework Cisco has established to enable the Intersight ecosystem to evolve. We currently support a ServiceNow plug-in to ingest and view Intersight inventory and view their relationships in the ServiceNow IT operations management platform. The ecosystem will be expanded to support a wide range of Cisco and third-party DevOps software.

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service dashboard

Customizable dashboard and mobile app

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service provides a dashboard (Figure 1) that spans Cisco UCS, Cisco HyperFlex, and third-party compute, network, storage, integrated systems, virtualization, and containers. The dashboard is user-customizable, allowing you to focus on the information and tasks that are relevant to your needs. You can create, customize, rename, and manage multiple dashboard views by adding, removing, or rearranging widgets on the dashboard. Intersight supports the display of up to 30 widgets per dashboard. This global dashboard includes features such as:

      Global inventory: Get information about inventory across supported systems, whether they are in the data center or at remote locations.

      Fault monitoring: Manage faults and set up alerting for all managed systems.

      Firmware status: Monitor and manage firmware versions.

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service allows you to monitor systems from a single management tool. However, if you need to look more deeply into a specific platform, IIS provides:

      Cross-launch capabilities for virtual Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) sessions.

      Tunneling capabilities for Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco UCS Director, Cisco IMC software, and Cisco HyperFlex Connect to allow secure access to the manager, whether you are inside or outside the corporate network.

The Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service mobile app provides visibility on-the-go with its intuitive view of Intersight-connected systems. You can conveniently keep an eye on your data center and edge environments—anywhere, anytime. The mobile app is an Apple and Android application to monitor inventory, tasks, and alerts. You can also take actions, such as turning on LED locators and opening Cisco support cases.

Proactive support

The telemetry data and incidents collected from the Cisco Intersight‒installed base are transmitted using secure communication mechanisms, and this information is available for use by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) to provide insights and more proactive support. When combined with Cisco Smart Call Home, TAC cases can be automatically opened for certain faults. No matter how a TAC case is opened, if the system is connected to Cisco Intersight, the log files are automatically read from the system, attached to the TAC case, and automatically analyzed for known issues. For certain types of hardware failures, Return-Materials-Authorization (RMA) cases are automatically opened. The Cisco Intersight and TAC integration speeds case resolution, limits the impact on IT personnel, and ultimately increases system uptime.

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service also enables users to provide more direct feedback to our products. In addition, the tight integration with the TAC extends the solution scope by enhancing continuous delivery to further speed up fixes and future development.

Hardware compliance

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service evaluates your hardware and firmware compatibility to help ensure that your system is compliant with the Cisco Hardware Compatibility List. This process identifies unsupported configurations and alerts you to any potential problems that may arise from unknowingly running unsupported configurations.
