In today’s changing IT landscape, more and more organizations move from on-premise models to cloud-based services, and from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to Applications as a Service (AaaS). In order to keep up with these and other industry evolutions, businesses need to be flexible in the way they manage their infrastructures. Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabric architecture addresses these pain points, and provides a roadmap for future growth.
Cisco ACI is the only solution of its kind that addresses security and policy challenges across both enterprise domains and the cloud. ACI can benefit your organization by simplifying automation through application-driven policy models, by supporting an open ecosystem (networking, storage and management), and more.
In a recent interview, Soni Jiandani, SVP Marketing of Cisco’s Insieme Business Unit, stated that, “ACI is unique in providing a multivendor, multihypervisor solution that offers flexibility with deployment models. It’s designed to operate in heterogeneous data center environments with open interfaces, open source, and open standards.”
When asked about benefits that clients can expect, Jiandani continued, “ACI supports an open ecosystem that includes a broad range of Layer 4–7 services, orchestration platforms, and automation tools. This reflects real-world data center deployments.”
