Cisco UCS Central Software extends the capabilities and concepts of Cisco UCS Manager across multiple Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) domains in one or more physical locations.
With an enhanced HTML 5 user interface available in seven languages, you can work easily on a global scale to provide configuration capabilities for pools, policies, and firmware. Administrators can follow a define-once-deploy-many-times workflow for their infrastructure to increase operational efficiency.
Subject matter experts can promote global policy compliance by choosing the resource pools and policies that need to be enforced globally or managed locally. Cisco UCS Central supports the entire Cisco UCS and Cisco HyperFlex portfolio, as well as the full family of Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects and all current Cisco UCS fabric interconnects.
Easily extend the functionality of your management tools through a broad partner ecosystem. An open API builds on the Cisco UCS Manager API for easy integration into higher-level data center management frameworks. You can use Cisco UCS Central with the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator to model policies and test changes for large-scale environments without the need for physical hardware.
The Cisco UCS partner management ecosystem integrates many existing management tools. (PDF - 652 KB )
