By enabling better automation of processes and management, Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) allows data center managers to achieve greater agility and scale in their server operations while reducing complexity and risk. Join us as we discuss UCS PowerTool, the PowerShell library for UCS, and demonstrate how Cisco UCS PowerTool interfaces with the Cisco UCS XML API (which provides an interface for Cisco UCS hardware inventory, monitoring, alerting, and automation of Cisco UCS using PowerShell). Real world examples detailing programmatic bare metal deployment and ongoing systems monitoring and management of Cisco UCS using Cisco UCS PowerTool will be demonstrated.
