Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Intersight

We use it as a tool to help customers with their management and operations of Cisco servers. With Cisco Intersight we don't need to have a VPN to the customer to be able to help with the management of operations of the servers. We also use it to deploy IKS (kubernetes) clusters at customers private cloud and in our lab
  • TAC cases
  • Remote management
  • Life cycle management
  • HCL
  • Installation and upgrades for Cisco Hyperflex
  • Kubernetes
  • IWE, beeds to be able to handle not just IKS virtual machines
  • Because Cisco Intersight is free (basic license), we can get customers on board very easily.
  • Easier to sell Cisco Servers.
I don't know of any product that is competing with Cisco Intersight, so I haven't been able to do a comparison.
Because Cisco is actively developing Cisco Intersight. Because Cisco listens to users of Cisco Intersight and actively develops suggestions and fix issues found.

Did Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service go as expected?


Would you buy Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Service again?


For me as a consultant with many customers running Cisco Servers in their DC, Cisco Intersight helps me and the customer to install/maintain and troubleshoot these servers without me being on-site or via VPN. The connected TAC functionality is the best part of Cisco Intersight today. You can directly from Intersight create a TAC case and the upload of the tech support files is done automatically so we don't have to do this manually. This is not only for Cisco Servers anymore—I learned this last week—but you can use it for Cisco ACI, and the upload of the tech support files if/when you are creating TAC cases. This requires Cisco ACI version 4.2
