Introduction to the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In for Cisco UCS Manager

The VMware vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for Cisco UCS Manager enables organizations to accelerate and simplify the management of their cloud infrastructure by automating the provisioning of UCS blades for virtualization. With over 90 out-of-the-box actions and workflows, the plug-in adds management of compute hardware to vCenter Orchestrator, therefore enabling the automation of the entire physical and virtual stack. Together with the vCenter Server and vCloud Director plug-ins, the UCS Manager plug-in provides the necessary pieces to automate several use cases, including:

  • Application of a service profile to a UCS blade
  • Cloning a service profile template to a service profile
  • Service profile customization of frequently modified components
  • Import and export of service profiles from and to UCS Manager instances

The VMware vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for Cisco UCS Manager runs on VMware vCenter Orchestrator 4.1 and the subsequent update releases. The plug-in is compatible with Cisco UCS Manager 1.3 and 1.4.
