Cisco states that this kind of cloud-based platform as a service is the first of its kind. Intersight brings a new era not only in how administrators can manage infrastructure, but how Cisco will deliver new features. Cisco Intersight is provided as a service with embedded analytics for Cisco and 3rd party IT infrastructure. It offers a different level of management that enables analysis, simplification, and automation of the environments in more advanced ways than the prior generations of tools.

To support the journey of automation, Cisco and Pure Storage have jointly developed this first third-party Integration into Cisco Intersight to give storage administrators the ability to manage Pure products from within Cisco Intersight. The first Integration is with FlashArray, Pure’s block-based all-flash storage array.

For Pure Storage, the potential of this platform lies in new features and capabilities. This storage and virtualization platform aims to solve the complexities of infrastructure management tools, providing: simplified deployment, management at scale, and the ability to add updates/enhancement without impacting operation frequently. These capabilities can be translated For Pure Storage’s FlashArray into:

  • Create VMFS Datastore
  • Delete VMFS Datastore
  • Resize VMFS Datastore
  • Add Host to Pure Storage FlashArray
  • Delete Host from Pure Storage FlashArray
  • Create/Delete/Rename Pure Storage FlashArray HostGroup
  • Remove Pure Storage FlashArray Host from HostGroup
  • vSphere OVF deployment
  • And more
