AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks facilitates the management, monitoring and maintenance of the complete stack of Chef's infrastructure, to be part of AWS has a large community for support and assistance, it also concentrates a lot of documentation that can empower our devops area to shorten the curve Learning. Good tool to automate tasks for the company's devops and IT staff.

Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight is very well suited for IT engineers, system administrators, and IT personnel that just wants to have a quick, easy use, interface (be it web-based or application-based) to monitor, manage and maintain their Cisco Infrastructure. This product provides just that, and looking at the product road map it can definitely offer more which we are really excited about!

Pros

AWS OpsWorks

  • The interface is quite intuitive and allows you to discover and easily find what you want to do and what other features are within OpsWorks.
  • Chef integration is pretty seamless and there are a good set of options and operating systems to choose from
  • It makes things like auto scaling set up, either via load or time, more straight forward and intuitive than what you'd typically see via the EC2 console
Andrew Raines | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Intersight

  • Cisco Intersight controls and manages all the infrastructures in the business set up, through advanced technological improvements.
  • More so, Cisco Intersight has the cloud space for rational storage and access mechanisms.
  • The software has data collection mechanisms, that allow businesses to increase their proficiency.
Rayden Paul | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AWS OpsWorks

  • Getting up and running with OpsWorks is a very technical and potentially time-consuming process. You need to know the ins and outs of Chef/Puppet if you really want to get into it and there isn't a convenient way to test out the environment locally so debugging can be time-consuming.
  • To take advantage of some of the newer AWS instance types you need to be running on a VPC, which again is a pain if you don't have a DevOps team.
  • The error logs and monitoring metrics in OpsWorks are pretty basic and haven't changed much over the years.

Cisco Intersight

  • The cost is a little high per trackable asset
  • Mobile application is missing some features
  • Automatic TAC case creation doesn't always work as advertised

Cisco Intersight is the affirmative program that enhances the management of all business infrastructures, both software and hardware-based tools. Besides, Cisco Intersight has a distinguished power of increasing the automation process, which eventually reduces the workload of the entire staff in the company set up and costs are lowered.

Unless you pay for a pricey support package getting support on OpsWorks will be pretty slow. Documentation is also relatively limited and sometimes hard to follow when compared to competitors. Generally, we've been able to get the answers we need from OpsWorks support when we run into problems but don't expect rapid responses.

I have had servers TAC cases open for issues with Cisco Intersight. Some have yet to be resolved. One case that is still open is where the HCL status ( Hardware Compatibility List ) shows not validated when It should be. We have several servers that have the exact same hardware, OS, and the same firmware. One server will show the HCL is not validated but all others will

Alternatives Considered

AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks is an orchestration tool, basically you use it to specify the state you want your network to be in by specifying the state you want each resource (server instances, applications, storage) in which you want that resource to be. And specify the state in which you want each resource.The evaluated competitors have other benefits that in our case did not provide as many benefits as OpsWorks.

Cisco Intersight

I think the idea of Intersight came from Meraki. The difference is Meraki used to manage all Meraki products with a single dashboard via SaaS deployment mode. Intersight provides the same capability for all UCS products and Hyperflex. Intersight also eliminates some tools that Cisco used to manage in the data center

The pricing model of Cisco Intersight was best as compared to other products. Their licensing terms were suitable and better for our budgets. When we compared the billing and ROI we found that it was more profitable as compared to other tools on the market. I would not champion for any pricing terms changes from my experience since everything is planned positively.

Return on Investment

AWS OpsWorks

  • OpsWorks has allowed some of our more simple application stacks to be implemented quickly and effectively. Whilst it is difficult to put actual numbers on it, it meant we could hit the ground running before tackling the more complex world of Cloudformation/Terraform to manage parts of our infrastructure.
Andrew Raines | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Intersight

  • The automation reduces the human capital involvement and this saves on costs.
  • Centralized management ensures there are proper structures for sharing business roles and functions.
  • More so, Cisco Intersight has data collection structures, which are authentic and help in controlling business growth.
