Implementing DevOps with Cisco UCS and VMware vRealize

August 22, 2016 - 3 Comments

A Cisco sponsored session at VMworld provides practical guidance for IT organizations transitioning to DevOps methodologies.


Business Driving DevOps Adoption

DevOps adoption is increasing due to the demands of the business to deliver and update new services rapidly. IT organizations are changing to accommodate the need for speed and innovation. According to a recent survey*, 81% of enterprises have implemented DevOps in some form: by projects or teams (29%), by business units or divisions (31%), or company-wide (21%). This is an important topic, so a track is focused on it at VMworld US in Las Vegas. Cisco will sponsor a session to explain how you can leverage your investments in VMware tools and Cisco UCS™ and Cisco HyperFlex™ infrastructure, as you transition to DevOps.

Implementing DevOps with VMware vRealize and Cisco UCS (DEVOP9965-SPO)

Date: Tuesday, August 30, 11:30 – 12:30

Location: Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Islander H, Level 1

A Framework for Implementing DevOps

DevOps implementations utilize management and automation tools that can leverage programmable infrastructure to facilitate rapid software development lifecycles. Cisco UCS servers, storage and networking as well as Cisco HyperFlex hyperconverged infrastructure were designed from the beginning to be programmable infrastructure. They allow you to treat infrastructure as code. When they are combined with the vSphere and the automation and operations functionality of the VMware vRealize suite, they provide a robust framework for implementing DevOps.VMworld 2016 LV

Cisco and VMware have worked together to develop integrations for vSphere, vRealize Operations and vRealize Orchestrator. This session will explain how your organization can transition to the higher levels of automation and faster problem resolution required in DevOps environments. It will include demos, information regarding SDKs, and an overview of the open ecosystem Cisco has developed to help organizations successfully implement DevOps methodologies.
