Cisco DCNM Demos: Comprehensive Management for the Data Center
Bookmark this blog! New demos will be added in the near future.
At Cisco Live, a customer asked me: “If I don’t have Cisco ACI yet, and my switches are NX-OS based, what can I use to automate and manage my data center [switches]?”
Cisco DCNM is one of the most powerful data center fabric manager that Cisco has ever produced. It’s the recommended automation and operations management solution for data center NX-OS deployments. It’s also Cisco’s premier storage networking management tool. It includes our best practices and advanced fabric tools, so, as your network grows, you handle it all with DCNM multi-platform management!
The following demos will show you the most popular capabilities and how you can bring those benefits to your data center:
