Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

ACI was a major disappointment

Product allegedly designed to ease network configuration, turned out to be much harder than command line. Very disappointing.

Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

Implementation was kind of easy

Very good.

ACI

The ACI solution is not well architected since its beginning. When we had the requirements of inter-DC com,muncation, they created a banded solution by writing some scripts to make it happen. Also, the products ans solution were not well tested before pushing to customer, we became the bata QA team for Cisco, found 100+ defects and bugs during the adoption period

Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

Implementation was straightforward

Flawless Execution

Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

Implementation complex, hope to reap benefits.

It is new, so still work to be done, but so far so good.

Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

Cisco ACI is the future of networking infrastructure.

Although ACI is relatively new, Cisco worked with us to assist with deployment. There are features that are not yet implemented but we are taking baby-steps before turning loose.

Cisco ACI implementation successful and increased productivity

Vendor was extremely helpful in defining the requirements, collaborating in design, through out implementation and further supported with training and documentation.

Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

May revolutionalize networks, but still has some bugs to work out.

ACI is still a developing product-line. We have run into many caveats and limitations that weren't obvious during the pre-sales design sessions. While none of the issues have been show-stoppers, they have led to dozens of hours of troubleshooting and re-architecting aspects of our design to achieve our desired results.

Implementation went well, but support after was poor.

Overall it was average experience due to Cisco personnel, not the 3rd party implementation. For the initial implementation, it went well, but after that, we had Cisco resource turnover which leads to missing upgrades and patches and a better understanding of how to best leverage it.
