Cisco UCS Platform Emulator is the Cisco UCS Manager application bundled into a virtual machine (VM). The VM includes software that emulates hardware communications for the Cisco Unified Computing System. The UCS Platform Emulator (UCSPE) was developed to enable the use of Cisco UCS Manager and the UCS XML API without requiring physical hardware. UCSPE significantly shortens the development cycle for applications that are based on the UCS XML API. You can create and test programs using only UCSPE installed on a laptop.
UCSPE presents a controlled environment for the following:
- Emulation of large-scale environments
- Changes in the hardware inventory (device discovery)
- Firmware upgrade testing
- Troubleshooting real UCS problems
