ACI Deployment

What is Nexus Dashboard?

At a time when digital transformation is at an all-time high, businesses tend to generate huge amounts of data, and require complex and ever-growing network infrastructure. With plenty of services needed to manage data centers, monitoring and moving through various applications have become increasingly difficult.

In short, an organization’s IT staff needs to deal with screen sprawl to keep up with digital transformation.

Cisco’s Day 2 Operations program helps solve these unique challenges through the Nexus Dashboard. As a centralized management console, the Nexus Dashboard allows organizations’ network operators to access all the applications needed for managing the network, all from a single launch point.

The Cisco Nexus Dashboard also unifies fragmented operational tools. A data center’s dashboard provides access to Cisco Multi-Site Orchestrator for extended connectivity, Cisco Nexus Insights for proactive configuration of issues, and integration for third-party tools.

Nexus Dashboard Installation

A Cisco Nexus Dashboard is required for hosting and installing the application. Installing the server requires:

  • Careful site planning and configuration
  • Adequate safe space around the server for airflow
  • Air-conditioning that meets the thermal requirements
  • A cabinet or a rack that meets the requirements
  • Uninterruptible power supply to protect the server against power failures.

Full installation instructions come with the server, including how to install it in a rack, manage the cables, and connecting the servers for setup.

With the Cisco Nexus Dashboard as your organization’s data center platform, real time analytics, visibility, and repair for network infrastructure are more streamlined than ever.
