  • Virtualization Changed The Storage Workload OS App Physical Virtual Infrastructure • 1:1 app to datastore • Predictable, single QoS • N:1 app to datastore • Random, multi-QoS Hypervisor
  • VSAN: Radically Simple & Dynamic Storage For Virtual Machines Instantly provision VM storage using simple policies. vSphere Hard disks SSD VSAN Hard disksSSD ……………. Hard disksSSD Hard disksSSD Clustered VSAN Datastore Each VM maintains its own unique policy on the VSAN datastore. Storage capacity and performance scale dynamically with your cluster. Hard disksSSD Hard disksSSD VSAN vSphere VSAN Datastore
  • Cisco Is To Physical As VMware Is To Virtual • Single point physical infrastructure management • Fully capable XML API • Policy based configuration management • Template based configurations • OS migration between physical servers
  • Wire Once Architecture  All links can be active all the time  Policy-driven bandwidth allocation  Virtual interface granularity Uplinks 20Gb/s 40Gb/s 80Gb/s
  • Unified Computing System (UCS) Single Point of Management Unified Fabric Stateless Servers with Virtualized Adapters
  • Unified, Embedded Management Aligns People, Policy, and Configuration With the Cloud Server Policy… Storage Policy… Network Policy… Virtualization Policy… Application Profiles… Subject Matter Experts Define Policies Storage SME Server SME Network SME Policies Used to Create Service Profile Templates Service Profile Templates Create Service Profiles Associating Service Profiles with Hardware Configures Servers Automatically Server Name UUID, MAC, WWN Boot Information LAN, SAN Config Firmware Policy Server Name UUID, MAC, WWN Boot Information LAN, SAN Config Firmware Policy Server Name UUID, MAC, WWN Boot Information LAN, SAN Config Firmware Policy Server Name UUID, MAC, WWN Boot Information LAN, SAN Config Firmware Policy Server Name UUID, MAC, WWN Boot Information LAN, SAN Config Firmware Policy Unified Management
  • Manage Many Form Factors for Diverse Application Requirements  Rack and Blade form factors in a common resource pool  Self Integrating System  Add capacity without complexity Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect Cisco UCS Fabric Extender C-Series Rack Mount Servers B-Series Blade Servers Unified Management
  • Cisco UCS E-Series Single Wide Blade Up to 2 SATA, SAS or SSD Hard Drives Configuration and Management Through CIMC Intel Xeon E3 Family Quad-Core Processor On-Board Hardware RAID 0/1 with Hot- Swap Capability One External and Two Internal GE Ports USB 2.0 Port for External Device Connectivity 8, 12, and 16 GB DRAM Options Maximum 65 W Power Draw 80 Percent Less than Server Wire-Free, Plug-and-Play Modularity, Low Shipping Weight (2.5 lb/1.1 kg) Remote and Schedulable Power Management iSCSI Initiator Hardware Offload KVM Console Connector 10/100 Ethernet Management Port Two SD cards: One for the CIMC and Temporary Storage of OS and One for a Blank Virtual Drive
  • Cisco UCS E-Series Double Wide Blade Up to 3 SATA, SAS, SSD Hard Drives or 2 HDD and a PCIe Card Out-of-Band Configuration and Management Through CIMC Intel Xeon E5-2400 Quad Core or Six-Core Processor On-Board Hardware RAID 0, 1, and 5 •Configuration Options with Hot-Swap Capability Two External and Two Internal GE Ports with TCP/IP Acceleration Front-Panel VGA, 2 USB, and Serial Console Connectors 8 GB - 48 GB DRAM Options Maximum 130 W Power Draw, 80 Percent Less than Server Wire-Free, Plug-and-Play Modularity, Low Shipping Weight (7 lb / 3.2 kg) Remote and Schedulable Power Management iSCSI Initiator Hardware Offload Two SD Cards: One for the CIMC and Temporary Storage of OS and One for a Blank Virtual Drive
  • VSAN on ISR G2 and UCS E-series  One Chassis In-Box redundancy architecture • 4 UCS E-140S Modules in one Cisco 3945 Integrated Service Router • VSAN running on the UCS E-series modules in the ISRs • Synchronous Data Mirroring across the nodes • Use vCenter to manage all hosts and VSAN storage clusters VSAN Datastore Hard disks SSD Hard disksSSD Hard disksSSDHard disksSSD
  • VSAN Across Remote Sites  Redundancy across UCS E-series with in a router in a ROBO • VSAN can create a single VSAN Storage cluster across all nodes with in a router Hard disksSSD Hard disksSSD …………….
