Introducing a Consumption-Based IT Model for the Corporate Data Center
Cisco has launched Cisco Intersight (formerly known as Project Starship) to offer developers public cloud–like access to data center resources while lowering IT OPEX. Intersight aims to consolidate operations for on-premises infrastructure into a centralized SaaS- based management plane that ties together, and will eventually absorb, the capabilities from Cisco UCS Manager, HyperFlex, and Integrated Management Controller (IMC) Supervisor. Intersight will initially be hosted by Cisco, but will be available as an on-premises or partner-hosted appliance in the future.

Intersight offers detailed performance metrics, telemetry, and inventory data for corporate IT to optimally target proactive maintenance and root-cause analysis tasks. Combined with machine learning capabilities, Intersight will provide guidance and, if desired, automatic issue resolution. At launch, Intersight connects to UCS Manager, IMC, and HyperFlex. It is safe to assume that Cisco will soon offer UCS Director integration.
