  • Central to being this optimized platform is the fact that UCS offers predictable, scalable performance for virtual desktop users. We’re not used to thinking about infrastructure having an impact on user experience, but honestly no where is that more evident than the role infrastructure plays in providing an uncompromised user experience. We punctuate this point, with assets like the ones shown here, which leverage 3rd party testing, by Principled Technologies, to demonstrate the scale and performance UCS delivers for virtual desktops. Through these papers, using industry-standard test methodologies and tools, we demonstrate how our UCS platform delivers industry-leading desktop-hosting density, without compromising the user experience, allowing knowledge/power users to get native-like levels of performance from their virtual desktop. Some figures cited here, show the kind of TCO effectiveness UCS offers, enabled by our B200 and B230 compute blades running VMware View or Citrix XenDesktop. We’ll share the links to these assets in the chat window later on. As we said earlier, desktop virtualization presents you an opportunity to have an architectural, solution-led discussion that spans infrastructure and desktop buyers, and using UCS as a proof point of how you can impact the desktop buyer’s user experience concerns, enables you to accelerate the selling motion and get to pilot / proof of concept leveraging UCS, much quicker. <br />
  • The Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server balances enterprise-class, performance, density and mission-critical RAS for production-level virtualisation and other mainstream data-center workloads. The server is a half-width, 2-socket blade server with substantial throughput and scalability. <br /> Building on the success of the UCS B200 M1 and M2 blade servers, the UCS B200 M3 server extends the capabilities of the Cisco Unified Computing System. It uses Intel&apos;s latest Xeon E5-2600 Xeon Product Family, 24 DIMM slots, 2 x 20 GbE LOM (LAN on Motherboard) to deliver new levels of performance, density and efficiency. <br />
  • Same setup for a single chassis and a single blade as it is for 40 chassis and 320 blades through dynamic provisioning <br /> Desktop Virtualization projects don’t start with 40 chassis and 320 blades. They start with a single chassis and a few blades. But as you prove out the architecture and you get ready to scale how can you do this efficiently and rapidly to meet your users demands. <br /> UCS can provide this strong foundation for your desktop virtualization infrastructure. <br />
  • We are able to scale and manage the scalability through service profiles. <br /> Service profiles allow you to abstract the servers identity including the required LAN connectivity, OS and Application requirements, and Storage Connectivity and encapsulate this into a stateless XML file. <br /> Therefore for desktop virtualization allowing you to predefine templates for different types of workloads such as a View server or a XenApp server. <br /> Then when you are ready to scale out your infrastructure its as simple as copyig a new Service Profile from the template and associating to a blade. <br /> Let’s also take the example of a server failure or increasing the resource capacity of the host. Say you have a server die? Or If you wanted to move the View host to a blade with more powerful CPUs, more memory, or more IO. How do you accomplish this today? <br />
