Cisco ACI Review

It has reduced our day-to-day operations by at least half

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is Multi-site architecture. We run three data centers with Cisco ACI Multi-site, so the interconnections of these three sites are made with ACI.

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced our day-to-day operations by at least half.

What is most valuable?

  • Its simplicity
  • It can be automated.

What needs improvement?

The user interface (UI) should be made easier.

I would like to have a multi-cloud environment, but I just read that Cisco ACI Anywhere is about to be released.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

At the moment, the stability is very good. A year and a half ago, sometimes things went wrong with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We chose Cisco ACI because of its scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is as good as their other products.

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

We were looking for an automated solution and decided to build from scratch with Cisco ACI.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. 

What about the implementation team?

We used Maticmind, which is an Italian system integrator and Cisco partner. They are very good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We chose ACI because we have worked with Cisco for a long time and felt that there was no reason to change at the time.

What other advice do I have?

It is a great product. We have not encountered any problems so far. Cisco is very good to work with, and I am really happy with this product.

I would advise to go with Cisco ACI.
