Remote Data Centre Management; Automated and At Your Fingertips

On-premises server and data centre management present a variety of considerations for organisations. Traditional data centre management platforms have been designed to minimise the complexity of managing the infrastructure they run on. The on-premises approach has presented a number of challenges, such as staff training and management, software upgrades and storage consumption. Unfortunately, a traditional on-premises data centre management approach is subject to the same challenges as the infrastructure it’s been designed to manage and can be a significant drain on resources and systems.

Although on-premises tools can promise centralised management, many fail to deliver that benefit. This failure can result in operational support teams still having to manage many aspects of their data centre environments on a box-by-box basis.

Cisco has removed the complexity of tool deployment, maintenance, and upgrades, by leveraging the agility of cloud services to create Cisco Intersight – a cloud delivered management platform to streamline both centralised and distributed data centres alike.
