On a typical day, the network ops command center operator spends 45% of the time triaging alerts, 15% on creating/updating trouble tickets and 25% on monitoring alert consoles. However, identifying the real problem and troubleshooting it most effectively to maintain SLAs is the core of the problem.
Enterprises and service providers are all moving to virtual data centers, or cloud architectures, or the new Software Defined Data Center, to obtain what are now well-known benefits: agility, efficiency, and cost control. But the move to these dynamic, virtualized, cloud architectures is creating new challenges for the management teams who are responsible for ensuring service availability and performance.
The top 3 challenges we hear most often are: SLAs – ensuring that agreed-upon service levels to the business are met or exceeded Managing operational costs -- by increasing operating efficiency, enabling high degrees of automation throughout the data center, and deliver more with existing resources Service-delivery infrastructure visibility -- having the management insights necessary to further expand the ongoing operational use of software-defined technologies with confidence
The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches deliver high scalability and performance, and exceptional energy efficiency in a compact form factor. These switches are ideal for aggregation- and access-layer deployments in enterprise, service provider, and cloud networks.
