New! Cisco UCS Director 4.1 – When You Don’t Have Time to Wait on IT

Congratulations on your hot new project! It is critical to your organization expanding its revenue base; it’s top of mind for your manager and the CIO. What’s that? You did all the planning, but you can’t start for four weeks? Oh, right—that’s how long IT needs to get you the necessary infrastructure resources.

Let’s change the perspective. YOU’RE the head of IT. The hot new project is critical to your organization. People want to start now but with all these manual processes your team needs four weeks. Your customers are frustrated. What’s the answer?

Cisco understands the impact of a delay like this on your organization, and we have the solution.

By replacing manual processes with unified automation and management across virtualization, compute, network, and storage, Cisco UCS Director gives you the speed you need. With the 4.1 version, Cisco UCS Director has deepened its infrastructure management capabilities.  With deeper support for FlexPod, Vblock, VSPEX, VNX and VNX2, Nexus (including the new Nexus 9000), UCS Manager and Central, Cisco UCS Director is continuing to increase the efficiency of your IT staff across a broader range of infrastructure components.   This link will provide more details on the latest release.

Does Cisco UCS Director really make a major difference? Yes, and in more ways than picking up the pace. Customers frequently comment on the following:

  • Consistency. Sounds fundamental right? Cisco UCS Director ensures that virtual machines, LUNs, VLANs and bare-metal instances are set up right—and according to YOUR best practices—the first time, every time. Human errors resulting from a system administrator applying best practices from a former job are eliminated.
  • Fosters collaboration. Instead of your system admins repeating the same manual tasks every day, they have time to talk with their network, computing, and storage counterparts. They create and innovate, and you benefit from the new services they deliver.
  • More with less. Let’s be honest, this is the mantra in business. Customers consistently mention how Cisco UCS Director helps them manage more with their existing IT staff.  When peak workloads hit … no sweat. Read our latest customer success story with Entel to learn more.

Here are some next steps to take. Register for a live demo and ask our technical experts questions. The next demo is Wednesday, February 5th and they run bi-weekly. Download the latest version of Cisco UCS Director and try it free for 30 days.

Your new project is critical to your organization expanding its revenue base.  So ask yourself, “Can my hot new project really wait or would I rather start now?”

Cisco UCS Director lines up IT with your business and eliminates the time waiting.

Now go kick-off that project.
