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!

SolarWinds Kiwi CatTools

Setting up device backup schedules for individual locations is quick and easy. The application is very straightforward and basic. The application covers 90% of our needs. Some devices that require configuration and file backups utilizing ftp or other methods are configured using a different set of tools. Backups can be stored in configured destination folders for easy review.

CatTools is simple to set up and administer. Anyone who can install a Windows application can quickly set up an automated backup of one or more devices. It does what it was designed to do.

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

The software is easy enough to set up and configure that even after using the product for years, we never had to contact support. We used some open source products before utilizing CatTools and could have used a speed dial to try and figure out the intricacies of the products.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight makes device management easy by automatically detecting the parameters that need to be monitored, so you can save time registering each device. In addition, thanks to its mobile application, you can know most of the time if an incident occurs due to the active alerting of the application.
