Overview

Cisco UCS Director represents the next generation of software for the management and orchestration of data center infrastructure.

Cisco UCS Director delivers unified management and orchestration for the industry’s leading converged infrastructure solutions that are based on Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) and Cisco Nexus. Cisco UCS Director extends the unification of compute, network, and storage layers through Cisco UCS to provide data center professionals with single pane-of-glass management and storage solution choice. Cisco UCS Director supports the industry’s leading converged infrastructure solutions, including NetApp FlexPod™ and FlexPod Express, EMC VSPEX, EMC VPLEX, and VCE Vblock™.

Cisco UCS Director automates the provisioning of resource pools across physical, virtual and baremetal environments from a unified, centralized management console reducing time-to-value for both applications and end users. Cisco UCS Director delivers native automated monitoring, OS and software updates and resource utilization analysis to free up your IT staff from mundane maintenance tasks allowing them to focus on competitive innovation for your business.

This document provides information regarding the physical and virtual devices and software supported by Cisco UCS Director. The information has been segmented into different functional areas and is organized by vendor within each functional area. We do not support hardware or software versions that have reached end of support by their vendors. There could be a delay between when a hardware model or software version reaches its end of support and its subsequent removal from this document. Support for hardware models and software versions is based on the end of support date announced by the vendor.
