Cisco Cloupia, formerly Cloupia Unified Infrastructure Controller, delivers unified management for industry-leading converged infrastructure solutions based on Cisco UCS and Nexus technologies. Through unified management, Cisco Cloupia enhances the Cisco vision of enabling cohesive, flexible data centers that significantly increase IT agility and improve business, while reducing operational processes and costs.
Cisco Cloupia was designed to reduce IT operating and capital expenses through unified automation and management of converged infrastructures built around Cisco UCS and Nexus switching. Cisco Cloupia is the solution that manages physical, virtual, and bare-metal instances from a single, unified management console. Cisco Cloupia is differentiated from other infrastructure management solutions in a number of ways in what it provides.
Out-of-box turnkey solution
Cisco Cloupia can be installed and ready to provision virtual or physical environments in less than two hours. Cisco Cloupia comes with a pre-defined task library, allowing IT to quickly drag and drop tasks, and create workflows and templates that can be published to a self-service portal within minutes.
Cisco Cloupia is hypervisor-agnostic to complement today's heterogeneous data centers. The solution's orchestration and automation extend beyond just the virtual layer to physical and bare metal, providing IT operations with a single solution for managing all environments.
Model-based orchestrationProduct Highlights
The Cisco Cloupia model-based orchestration safeguards against business processes and tasks being disrupted. Unlike script-based orchestration, Cisco Cloupia can quickly respond to changes in the environment, such as a switch being unavailable, and select the best path forward. This helps to ensure that business processes and workflows continue undisturbed.
