Cisco ACI Review

Helps us drive consistent ACI policies and operational best practices to our cloud instances

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for Cisco ACI is to connect data center devices. 

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to drive consistent ACI policies and operational best practices to our cloud instances.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of Cisco ACI is that it is easy to manage. We can automate and it can be scripted. Virtual ACI is very good.

What needs improvement?

They should make it easier for the network people to do automated solutions. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. We don't have any complaints.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of Cisco ACI is good so far.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would give their technical support an eight out of ten.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Nexus 7000, 5000, and 2000 previously. The future is going to be on the data center.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of the Cisco ACI platform is a little complex. The migration was a little tough in the beginning but once we got it, it wasn't so hard. 

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultant for the deployment. Our experience with the consultant was good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We always use Cisco. They are our main vendor. We didn't have any competition to compare. 

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from 1-10, I would rate this product an eight. It's not 100% accurate yet.
