Cisco APIC is the main architectural component of Cisco ACI. It is the unified point of automation and management for the Cisco ACI fabric, policy enforcement, and health monitoring and optimizes performance and agility.
Allows application deployment within sites and across global data centers without complex Data Center Interconnect (DCI) infrastructure.
Automate the interconnect of multiple on-premises and cloud data centers.
Provides a command-line interface (CLI) and GUI, which utilize the APIs to manage the fabric holistically.
Robust implementation of multi-tenant security, quality of service (QoS), and high availability.
“Configuring physical and logical components manually takes time and can introduce errors. With Cisco ACI, we can define groups, interfaces, and policies once, and then push them everywhere from a central console. Once the scripts are developed and the button is pushed, no human intervention is needed.”David Martinez IT communications manager, Grifols
