It is used in our data center.

What is most valuable?

Automation is its most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

  • The way the objects are oriented on it are not as straightforward as they should be.
  • The learning curve of this product is very steep. It is not what I'm used to.
  • I miss having the CLI. I am old-fashioned.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It seems fairly stable. We have not had any major hiccups.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is pretty scalable.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. We had an issue where we had to talk to Cisco's technical assistance, and it worked out.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward. We just moved from one platform to another.

What about the implementation team?

We use consultants for the deployment, and they were very helpful. They had experience that we didn't.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There was only one logical way to go, and that was with the Cisco ACI.

What other advice do I have?

Just go for Cisco ACI.
