Prime Infrastructure API in a nutshell

While PI (Prime Infrastructure) provides a lot of flexible options to deploy configuration templates, or to report information about your devices, you may want to tune it up in a way which is not possible yet, even with the latest version (see Seppi’s post about PI 2.1).

Why should you wait for the next development milestone?

Application API gives the opportunity to interact with PI in a robust and efficient manner, allowing the addition of reporting and configuring capabilities to the platform :

  • Access to device related information, such as physical and logical details, but also credentials, alarms and events.
  • Report access, where you can trigger and collect result of any report defined in the system.
  • Template configuration access, to manage, and deploy CLI templates.

UCS striking fear into HP and IBM

Two weeks ago IBM announced they were selling their Enterprise x86 server division to Lenovo.

Last week, HP announced that as of February 2014 their customers will no longer be able to access firmware updates and service packs without a valid support agreement. This goes to show that HP is trying to get every last dollar (Swiss Franc!) out of their customers!

Note: Cisco continues to offer UCS Firmware downloads for free with just a basic account, no support contract required.
