Cisco ACI with AppDynamics v1.1

April 2020

The Data Center Practice is pleased to announce that Cisco ACI with AppDynamics v1.1 is available on dCloud to Customer, Partner and Cisco users in ALL dCloud locations.

Cisco ACI-AppDynamics integration helps business-critical applications run flawlessly. By providing deep visibility and powerful correlation across the application and network, this seamless interaction enables teams to deliver a positive end-user experience.

Experience how AppDynamics integration with Cisco ACI solution provides end-to-end visibility into the application and network layers within a data center.

The infrastructure of this demo consists of two parts, a datacenter-based part and a cloud-based part. The datacenter-based part consists of:

  • an ACI infrastructure
  • a native ACI application
  • a VMware infrastructure
  • an in-house developed demo application.

The demo application is deployed on top of the VMware infrastructure, which in turn is deployed on top the ACI infrastructure. The cloud-based part hosts a managed AppDynamics SaaS controller.

To facilitate operational visibility for infrastructure administration teams, the AppIQ ACI application is used, which runs on top of the ACI infrastructure. The application works as a bridge between the ACI and the AppDynamics infrastructures, gathering and correlating information to present an aggregated infrastructure and application visual overview of the current overall health per application.

What’s New

The AppIQ ACI application has been added and is featured at the end of scenario 2. AppIQ provides ACI operators almost real-time visibility of the performance and the health of the application as it relates to ACI application and fabric topology.l)
