Cisco ACI vs Mina: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cisco ACI as "The industry-leading SDN solution". It represents the industry's most comprehensive data center networking solution with flexible deployment options and the ability to deploy apps based on business needs, not by technology limitations. On the other hand, Mina is detailed as "Really fast deployer and server automation tool". Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead.

Cisco ACI and Mina belong to "Server Configuration and Automation" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Cisco ACI are:

  • Automation and consistency
  • Multicloud acceleration
  • Protect your network with zero-trust

On the other hand, Mina provides the following key features:

  • Safe deploys. New releases are built on a temp folder. If the deploy script fails at any point, the build is deleted and it’d be as if nothing happened.
  • Locks. Deploy scripts rely on a lockfile ensuring only one deploy can happen at a time.
  • Works with anything. While Mina is built with Rails projects it mind, it can be used on just about any type of project deployable via SSH, Ruby or not.

Mina is an open source tool with 4.14K GitHub stars and 458 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mina's open source repository on GitHub.
