Cisco and Microsoft continue their ongoing enhancements to the integrations of their operations and automation tools to help IT organizations achieve greater efficiencies.
Cisco UCS™ was designed to help optimize IT operations. We created a broad partner ecosystem from the very beginning to leverage the advantages of our programmable infrastructure and unified APIs. The integrations we have developed with Microsoft and more than 15 other ISVs help organizations customize and extend their existing IT investments in:
IT service management (ITSM) and IT operations management (ITOM)
Monitoring and analysis
Orchestration and automation
Configuration, deployment, and compliance
DevOps and continuous delivery
Virtualization and storage management
Wide Range of Microsoft Integrations
The UCS management integrations with Microsoft include a variety of different tools. Here’s a quick summary:
I wanted to demonstrate some of the benefits of these integrations, so I developed a video to help you get started with the UCS Management Pack Suite for SCOM. The demo provides an introduction to the following:

Ongoing Development with MicrosoftWe’ve made several recent updates to the integrations to support the latest releases and provide ongoing improvements.

PowerTool Suite: Support for the latest releases of UCS Manager, Central and IMC plus new cmdlets to interact with the Cisco UCS hardware and software compatibility list. You can download the latest version here.
