Cisco is pleased to announce Cisco IMC 2.0 is now available.
Over the last five years I have witnessed impressive evolution of the management controller for C-Series. Cisco IMC has evolved from a basic white box baseboard management controller to the world’s state of the art integrated management controller. Whether integrated into the UCS architecture or operated in a ‘standalone’ environment, Cisco IMC 2.0 is second to none.
Cisco has taken an integrated ‘no host agent’ approach to the UCS C-Series management with the Cisco IMC. Advanced feature sets are integrated into the hardware eliminating the need to manage host agent software or complex licensing.
