Cisco Data Center Solutions
Cisco Data Center Solutions
Cisco has introduced several solutions in order to reduce complexity within the Cisco data centers and enhance reliability in the enterprise data centers. Here, we are going to introduce some of these modern solutions:
Cisco Network Assurance Engine
Cisco Network Assurance Engine or CNAE is a software only solution that installs in less than 30 minutes and proactively analyzes all your policies and configurations in your network to identify potential issues, configurations and more. By having more than 5,000 built-in failures, not only the CNAE continuously checks your configuration, but it also checks for correctness on different things like ACI, server load balancers, virtualization and more. It also provides you with recommendations to preserve policy compliance. You can avoid duplicate unnecessary configuration and risks due to human errors by detecting those potential errors immediately. Running your environment as optimized as possible is key in today’s resource constrained world.
Cisco Workload Optimization Manager
Cisco Workload Optimization Manager or CWOM is an agentless software only solution that constantly learns how your workloads and applications user infrastructure in a multi-cloud world. It provides you with daily recommendations and ways to improve its utilization, whether that means adding or reducing CPU, memory, disks or other resources. Maybe even moving a workload to a less congested server. CWOM allows you not only to detect better ways to use their infrastructure, but may also automate those actions to warranty you are always running in the best possible way.
If you’re planning on migrating to the cloud, it would be very easy to spend more money than what you actually need. Because you may have different undersides or oversized workloads. CWOM tells you exactly how much resources you may need and constantly right sizes them based on your applications demand. This enables your business to utilize and consume only the resources your application has really need on any cloud without manual intervention.
Cisco Tetration Analytics
Analytics play a major role in today’s world and we consider security and user experience as key factors in any business today. In the security front, Cisco Tetration is an infrastructure real-time analytics platform, that helps businesses enabling zero trust segmentation and compliance. Today’s straits are constant and understanding the way application communicate is important to avoid opening unnecessary pores, and therefore adding potential risks. Tetration discovers automatically, hide your applications communicate and allows you to quickly identify any potential threat that may affect your business through Cisco security. This may help you understand how a device is communicating to other devices and provide you with visibility even at the process level. Then if you want to enforce or micro segment an endpoint at the host level based on your defined policies, you can do so centrally and automatically through software-based answers. This helps you reduce by more than 85% the potential surface, where a hacker may attack, and allows you to analyze and secure your work workloads on any cloud.
Cisco App Dynamics
Cisco App Dynamics monitors your applications performance in real time. This allows you to monitor your application all the way from the end-user, in its mobile device or browser, to the database providing your business to impress identity insights on how your application is being accessed. Things like crash information, database query level, infrastructure utilization and more, reducing by more than 40% application incidents and separate monitoring tools acquisitions. You may run out dynamic sensors on any cloud making your applications monitored all the time anywhere, and even mapping your application performance to business transactions and metrics through Cisco analytics engine.
Cisco Cloud Center
Cloud Center is a multi-cloud management and orchestration solution that allows you to centrally aggregate multiple cloud resources into a single pane of glass. Then if you want to provide your IT users with a single click fully automated experience for Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Cloud Center allows you to model services once and then without any additional configuration deployed in any cloud you may want, whether it’s public or private. Cisco Cloud Center also allows you to understand how much money each tenant or user is spending on every cloud making it possible for you to limit those expenses or even benchmark different clouds based on price and/or performance. Through open APIs we integrate with more than 15 clouds, plus, we also integrate with existing automation and orchestration tools, like UCS director, Puppet, chef, Ansible and etc. Also, you may leverage features like micro segmentation Tetration and AppD the installation for every sensor you may want to deploy in the newly created applications and more.
