The start appeared to be rather easy, mainly some issue with the start. That's not new for any project within IT. However, convergence compaitibilty with our CP firewalls appeared to be challenging. It's fixed, but not with a standard out of the box solution, which is rather shamefull.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.
