Cisco ACI Review

It has centralized our projects, but the user interface is complex

What is our primary use case?

We use it for virtual automation and virtual networking in our data center. It is for virtualized networks instead of physical elements.

How has it helped my organization?

It has centralized our projects.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use because you have all the information coming from the same technology.

What needs improvement?

The ACI user interface is complex and Cisco should improve it.

We had to take time to learn the product, as it is quite complicated to understand.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable. We use it all day.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have technical support with Cisco, and it is great. They are easy to reach. We are big client. They generally solve our issues.

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

We were previously using Cisco NX-OS products, which are physical, but we needed to install virtual. 

We have large data centers which need to be integrated with vRealize.

How was the initial setup?

At beginning, it was not easy to set up, because it is a complex project. However, the initial setup was easy overall.
