Cisco ACI Review

A quick, easy way to configure scripts while reducing human error

What is our primary use case?

The main purpose is to be a new data center in our company. 

How has it helped my organization?

Because of its automation feature, when you configure scripts for Cisco ACI, it reduces human error. It is an easy and quick way to do this.

What is most valuable?

  • It is resilient.
  • It is the future solution for data centers.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes, it has been a bit hard to configure it.

Since it is a new technology, Cisco moved all the menus. This made it tricky to use.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is working well. It is stable. However, the solution is a bit big for us to configure.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Before scaling, you have to develop the scripts.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not opened a ticket yet, but one of my partners says the support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our previously solution was Nexus, but I prefer Cisco ACI. I think ACI is the better solution.

How was the initial setup?

I wasn't a part of the setup, but it was straightforward and easy.

What about the implementation team?

We used our partner to develop the ACI in our company. They were really good and have good engineers with a good experience.

What other advice do I have?

This is another way to configure your network solution. Be open-minded about it.
