SaaS Release Cadence

CloudCenter Suite SaaS is a managed, cloud-based service offered by Cisco. Cisco provides ongoing management, maintenance, and upgrades with end-to-end monitoring and 24/7 customer support. In addition, CloudCenter Suite SaaS offers a large number of pre-built, out-of-the-box integrations and content to ensure that your getting started experience with CloudCenter Suite is seamless. The following aspects of your CloudCenter Suite experience is handled by Cisco:

  • Preparing the infrastructure based on architectural considerations

  • Installing , Managing, and Upgrading CloudCenter Suite

  • Installing, Managing, and Upgrading Modules

  • Setting up the initial administrator

  • Managing the cluster

  • See SaaS Access for additional details

You can purchase CloudCenter Suite SaaS by contacting your Cisco Account Manager or a Cisco sales representative.

Self-Hosted Release Cadence

CloudCenter Suite Self-Hosted allows you to purchase, host, and  install the software from Cisco so you can access and manage the entire solution from a remote server or location that is located on your premises. You can choose to deploy CloudCenter Suite by yourself by installing it on-premises (VMware, OpenStack, and so forth) or by using a cloud provider (AWS, GCP, and so forth) as well as use the CloudCenter Suite out-of-the-box integrations to create a custom solution.

  • Across modules, only releases within the same major/minor versions are supported with each other. For instance, Action Orchestrator 5.1.3 only works with Workload Manager 5.1.2, but Action Orchestrator 5.1.3 with Workload Manager 5.0.1 is not supported.

  • The CloudCenter Suite has a common installer at the major release level to install, upgrade, and integrate all modules included in the suite.

    • The CloudCenter Suite installation corresponds directly to each major release, for instance CloudCenter Suite 5.1.

    • The minor release version is CloudCenter Suite 5.1.0, which is available as installer files for ALL components for all supported clouds.

  • CloudCenter Suite 5.1 includes multiple modules that are available through the Suite Installer and initiated by the Suite Admin.

    • Each module can have access to additional gateways or endpoints that allow enterprises to add module-specific components.

    • Each major release can have multiple minor releases at the module level.

  • The Kubernetes cluster can be upgraded to CloudCenter Suite 5.1.0 from CloudCenter Suite 5.0.x.

  • The backup and restore functionality is available in CloudCenter Suite 5.1.0. 

  • See Installer Overview or Suite Architecture for additional details.

You can purchase CloudCenter Suite Hosted by contacting your Cisco Account Manager or a Cisco sales representative or CloudCenter Suite Support team.
