In others simulators say CISCO APIC.


I believed B is the answer. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/cloud-systems-management/application-policy-infrastructure-controller-apic/datasheet-c78-732414.html Cisco ACI consists of (Figure 1): ●   Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) ●   Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches (Cisco ACI spine and leaf switches) ●   Cisco ACI ecosystem


This answer is incorrect. According to Cisco's own documentation, the correct answer is the Cisco APIC. "The infrastructure controller is the main architectural component of the Cisco ACI solution. It is the unified point of automation and management for the Cisco ACI fabric, policy enforcement, and health monitoring. The APIC appliance is a centralized, clustered controller that optimizes performance and unifies operation of physical and virtual environments. The controller manages and operates a scalable multitenant Cisco ACI fabric."


I agree with Sypher, ACI is just the architecture, APIC is the management system in that architecture.


Agreed. Spike has the correct answer for this one.


SDN solution based, Cisco ACI (B) is the answer. Cisco APIC (C) is just one of the component within Cisco ACI itself eventhough APIC is the key to centralized management system


The question actually asks which "component" of Cisco's SDN solution (Cisco ACI) serves as the the centralized management system. Which would be Cisco APIC.
