Which of the following is Cisco software that can be used to manage multiple UCS domains across geographical boundaries?
- Cisco UCS Director
- Cisco IMC Supervisor
- Cisco UCS Manager
- Cisco UCS Central
Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Central is software that can be used to manage multiple UCS domains, including domains that are separated by geographical boundaries. Cisco UCS Central can be used to deploy standardized configurations and policies from a central virtual machine (VM).
Cisco UCS Director is software that can automate actions and be used to construct a private cloud. Cisco UCS Director creates a basic Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) framework by using hardware abstraction to convert hardware and software into programmable actions that can then be combined into an automated custom workflow. Thus Cisco UCS Director enables administrators to construct a private cloud in which they can automate and orchestrate both physical and virtual components of a data center. Cisco UCS Director is typically accessed by using a web-based interface.
Cisco UCS Manager is web-based software that can be used to manage a single UCS domain. The software is typically embedded in Cisco UCS fabric interconnects rather than installed in a VM or on separate physical servers.
Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC) Supervisor is software that can be used to centrally manage multiple standalone Cisco C-Series and E-Series servers. The servers need not be located at the same site. Cisco IMC Supervisor uses a web-based interface and is typically deployed as a downloadable virtual application.
