ScienceLogic Achieves Sponsored Validation for Cisco UCS
ScienceLogic, an award-winning data center and cloud management software vendor, is now validated on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), the industry’s first converged data center platform that delivers smart, programmable infrastructure to simplify and accelerate enterprise-class application and service deployment in bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud-computing environments. The ScienceLogic management platform provides consolidated visibility and control for heterogeneous, multi-vendor systems located in data centers, private clouds, and public clouds.
The ScienceLogic platform has been a network management module in the Cisco Smart Business Architecture (SBA) since 2009. Cisco SBA provides reference architectures that simplify and speed deployment of Cisco solutions for midsize to enterprise networks. Selected for its ease of use and speed of deployment, the ScienceLogic solution includes a set of management templates that begin to provide availability, performance, and configuration information immediately, covering the spectrum of Cisco devices and services, including:
- Borderless Networks – routing, switching, wireless, networking, security
- Collaboration – voice, video, telepresence
- Data Center and Virtualization – Cisco UCS, VCE Vblock, data center switches
Extensive Cisco SBA testing served as a basis for the validation of the ScienceLogic management platform for Cisco UCS management. Beyond the breadth of coverage for Cisco solutions, the ScienceLogic platform was designed to manage dynamic, heterogeneous compute environments from the data center to the cloud, making it well-suited for Cisco UCS, which combines leading solutions, infrastructure, and tools from multiple vendors.
ScienceLogic provides both holistic and granular views for Cisco UCS – from overall availability and performance to real-time alerts and performance trending on Cisco networking components, blade servers, and physical and virtual machines. Starting with intelligent auto-discovery, ScienceLogic management for Cisco UCS provides a consolidated view of physical and virtual infrastructure components, tracking and updating the relationships between components as they change in dynamic, virtualized, and cloud-computing environments.
“ScienceLogic is committed to providing the most comprehensive, advanced, yet easy-to-use Cisco management solution on the market,” said Jeremy Sherwood, product manager for cloud, virtualization, and storage management at ScienceLogic. “For core Cisco networking gear and advanced technologies like Cisco UCS, Cisco TelePresence, and VCE Vblock, ScienceLogic provides a single platform for consistent monitoring and management of the Cisco solutions you have today and the ones you will deploy tomorrow.”
