Cisco Intersight – A Transformative Evolution


Cisco recently introduced Cisco Intersight, a revolutionary cloud-based systems management platform. Intersight was designed to deliver significant benefits while being easy to use and simple for Cisco UCS and HyperFlex customers to transition.

Non-Disruptive Transformation

Great innovations need to be revolutionary without being too disruptive. They should deliver compelling new benefits to users without being difficult to begin using. This was our goal, as we developed the architecture for Project Starship, our internal code name for the new Cisco Intersight cloud-based infrastructure management platform. We wanted to provide a transformative experience for our customers with no hassles, as they adopt software as a service (SaaS) to manage their infrastructure.

Cisco UCS and HyperFlex are designed as programmable infrastructure with a unified API. As a result, no hardware is required to allow Cisco UCS or HyperFlex systems to be supported by Intersight. We are simply moving the management plane to the cloud with Cisco Intersight. We’ve also added analytics and machine learning to provide actionable intelligence to daily operations.

All that is required to transition to Cisco Intersight is the latest releases of UCS Manager, Integrated Management Controller (IMC) or HyperFlex software plus a new innovation we call a device connector. The device connector is a lightweight and autonomous piece of software enabling secure communication between the system and the Intersight portal. It is bundled with the firmware as an embedded product feature.
