  • In summary, Cisco UCS combines industry-standard x86-architecture servers, networking, virtualization, and unified management in a single system. Cisco UCS is an open system, helping IT transform operations through policy-based automation and deep integration with familiar systems management and orchestration tools. Cisco UCS is a critical component of the Cisco Unified Data Center, offering innovation that enables our customers to transform and evolve their businesses through IT simplification, agility, and efficiency.
  • In addition to the already robust portfolio of UCS blade and rack servers, beginning in March, we will launch three new platforms – B200 M3, C220 M3 and C240 M3. Beginning later in the 1H2012, the UCS server portfolio will continue to grow with more blade and rack servers. Before the end of 2012, the UCS server lineup will include eleven (11) rack servers and seven (7) blade servers – This represents a doubling of the current portfolio!Other Key Points: -Balance Architecture memory i/o and cpu -Beyond Virtualization -Performance Metrics will be addedWorkload most suited for density, performance and I/O is VDI, commercial HPC, application servers, general purpose compute
  • New innovations create a balanced environment of processing cores, memory, and I/O for optimal application performance in bare metal and virtualized environments Highest scale, low latency networking: Cisco UCS6296UPFI and Cisco UCS2204XP Fabric Ext.4X Bandwidth – 2 Tbps 40% decrease is latency – sub 2 uS 48 10Gbps Unified Ports per RUChassis I/O Module 2204XPEnhanced Resiliency and Utilization with Port Channeling Options for both 80 Gbps and 160 Gbps to each chassisHigh performance virtual networks: introducing the VIC 1240 Industry’s first 40 Gbps-to-the-blade; up to 80Gbps bandwidth via an I/O expander in the optional mezz. slot 125 vNICs – 250 per server Higher VM consolidation – 100s per server
  • Cisco UCS™ unifies blade and rack management – an industry first. Provides operational flexibility and architectural freedom without compromise. Benefits of UCS Manager and Service Profiles brought to rack optimized servers Ability to add capacity without complexity
  • As you scale UCS domains there can be multiple UCS managers in the infrastructure, each managing a pair of fabric interconnects and the associated chassis and servers.What Pasadena brings is the ability to centralize the management of multiple UCS domains whether they are in a single datacenter or spread across multiple datacentersPasadena takes the underlying policy based management philosophy of UCS and simple globalizes it. As an example now you can have virtual MAC addresses derived from a global pool or firmware deployed from a central location to any UCS domainsUsing the same model based architectural framework of UCS Manager, Pasadena offers an API that can now be used for global automation among UCS domains.As the number of UCS domains and managed servers grow, this tool provides a way in which the management of this growing infrastructure can continue to be simple.As a result the operational savings of UCS continue to grow as the UCS environment itself grows.

  • Partnerships are important in any data center environment. Cisco’s differentiation with our partnerships is the level of integration, validation and testing that we’ve done across a wide range of partners. One of the biggest pain points for customers is ensuring that an application, OS and hypervisor will run effectively on the server platform. Cisco has a broad array of validated solutions across a variety of apps. Same goes for system management, which represents another huge investment by IT. Cisco also has defined what we call ‘ integrated whole offer solutions which utilize pre-packaged Unified Data Center solutions coupled with Cisco services. Whatever option you choose, it will help you obtain the benefits of Cisco Unified Data Center quickly. And customers can use these solutions as a way to expand existing data centers, as well.  We also have worked very closely with partners such VCE, HDS and NetApp to build converged infrastructure platforms. These platforms have been designed to eliminate artificially integration (through management layers) and the associated non-recoverable engineering investments that customers need to make. Let’s spend a few minutes introducing those platforms as they’re a key delivery vehicle for a company’s application portfolio.
