Back in July we announced Project Starship along with a Tech Preview of a product that would later be launched as Cisco Intersight. While it is not common that we release an internal project codename, we felt that in the spirit of the original ‘Project California’, the codename for Cisco UCS (Unified Computing System), warranted that we solicit feedback from our customers prior to the formal announcement and launch.  In September, we formally announced Cisco Intersight as the product name and going forward we will use this name in all external communications. 

Cisco Intersight Update:

We are pleased to announce that the Cisco Intersight Base was launched today for General Availability and is live at: This capability is available at no additional cost to existing Cisco UCS and Cisco Hyperflex customers who are on supported platforms.

Tech Preview Feedback & Product Announcement:

This announcement comes after a successful Tech Preview and I want to thank everyone who participated and provided feedback. In case you missed it, we formally announced Cisco Intersight to the world in September 2017 and the announcement was captured here:
