Zenoss for Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI)
Cisco ACI accelerates data center application deployments, automates IT tasks, and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO). It accomplishes this using a business-relevant, software-defined-networking (SDN) policy model across networks, servers, storage, security and services.
Zenoss builds on the foundational ACI elements to complete the picture. When network teams use ACI to define the networking for new applications, Zenoss automatically generates models of the dynamic relationships across the infrastructure that supports the applications. Through platform extensions, Zenoss also drives provisioning and orchestration software to enable automated deployment of new systems and applications in production environments.
Customers deploying Cisco ACI can leverage the Zenoss advanced management solutions for the core Nexus 9000 series routers.
