Overview

Cisco Intersight Infrastructure Services (IIS) enable the streamlined deployment, monitoring, management, and support of physical and virtual infrastructure. IIS supports Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS) servers and third-party devices. In addition, IIS provides the following advanced management and support capabilities along with global visibility of infrastructure health and status.

  • Telemetry data can be analyzed without any manual intervention when a problem occurs.

  • Service Request (SR) and a Return Material Authorization (RMA) are raised automatically.

Intersight Managed Mode (IMM) is a new IIS architecture that manages the UCS Fabric Interconnected systems through a Redfish-based standard model. IMM unifies the capabilities of the UCS Systems and the cloud-based flexibility of Intersight, thus unifying the management experience for the standalone and Fabric Interconnect attached systems.
