Converged Systems Advisor is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that consists of an on-premises agent and a cloud-based portal.

The following image shows the relationship between Converged Systems Advisor components:

  1. The Converged Systems Advisor agent, which resides on your premises, collects configuration data from a FlexPod converged infrastructure using credentials that you provide.

  2. The agent sends the data to the Converged Systems Advisor portal.

  3. Users log in to the Converged Systems Advisor portal using a web browser to validate, monitor, and optimize their FlexPod converged infrastructure.
