  • Slide: Title SlideNotes:
  • Slide: Cisco’s Microsoft Datacenter PortfolioNotes:We use this slide to continue to make the case that we offer a complete end to end solution for MSFT applications. Our portfolio delivers an optimum environment for the MSFT applications. Remember not everybody knows about UCS and people still get surprised when we tell them about our success in the server business…Our portfolio covers the following datacenter disciplines”Compute = UCS, certified for Windows Server 2012Network = Nexus, Nexus 1000V is tightly integrated with Windows Server 2012’s extensible Hyper-V switch.Storage = Our strong partnerships with EMC (VSEPX)and NetApp (FlexPod)Management = We integrate and extend with the MSFT System Center family and PowerShell toolset.Virtualization = WE ARE HYPERVISOR AGNOSTIC. VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix, all are OK…Architectures = Here we educate the audience on our CVDs – Cisco Validated Designs. Prescriptive guidance, reference architectures that we provide on the MSFT applications.
  • Slide: Enterprise Messaging: A Mission Critical ServiceNotes:Adaptability to new delivery models - IT departments demand the freedom of choice to run their messaging solution in a physical or virtual environmentThe need for high-availability - it’s necessary to replicate data and to load-balance client-facing services and potentially account for geographically dispersed failoverAvoiding added complexity - Administrators and architects have numerous server, storage, and network stacks. Each of these stacks is typically managed individually by specialists focused on that area, and large projects require complex coordination between these areas and ongoing cooperation during steady-state operations.
  • Slide: Meet Today’s Messaging ChallengesNotes:Cisco Unified Data Center is a holistic data center infrastructure architecture. It combines compute, storage, network, security, and management into a single fabric architecture to create an optimal environment for Microsoft enterprise applications. Cisco Unified Management framework features an open design that integrates seamlessly with Microsoft applications, boosting the power of Microsoft management tools. The Unified Data Center provides automation and simplified operations at the server, network, and cloud-services layers. Microsoft Windows Server and applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL Server on Cisco Unified Data Center bring management choice and flexibility to deliver agile, simple, and efficient data center performance.
  • Slide: AgileNotes:
  • Slide: SimpleNotes:Control the server, storage, and network infrastructure through a single, cohesive management system that includes the Microsoft System Center suite of tools, the Cisco UCS Manager, and Cisco PowerTool - a library of cmdlets based on Windows PowerShell to further ease control and automation across hardware and software
  • Slide: EfficientNotes:No Single Point of Failure - Designed to be fully redundantIf a failure occurs, Cisco UCS servers can be provisioned in minutes to reduce downtime. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 clusters servers to provide either active-active or active-passive failover for continuous availability Virtualization Automation - Cisco UCS with Microsoft Hyper-VWhen running in conjunction with Hyper-V from Microsoft, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager can automatically migrate live virtual machines to alternative servers to accommodate scheduled maintenance or proactively move or take other action if anomalies are detectedIntel Xeon Machine Check Architecture Recovery further increases flexibility and application availabilityLower Storage Access Expense - Choose your storage systemWith network-attached storage (NAS), the system’s high-bandwidth, low-latency, 10-Gbps Ethernet network speeds the flow of data between servers and storage systemsWith of SAN-based storage, the same network carries Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic completely and transparently to the host operating system or hypervisor through converged network adapters that place both network and storage traffic on the same networkImproved Consolidation Ratios - Extended Memory Technology Provides the largest (384 GB) memory footprint available for a 2-socket Intel serverImproves performance of memory-intensive applicationsSupport greater physical-to-virtual consolidation ratios, reduce the number of servers and required costs Increased I/O Performance - Increased memory capacity High memory capacity is required to realize the improved performance achievable with the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 redesignSupporting sufficient memory with traditional servers requires 4-socket servers and can be costlyCisco UCS Extended Memory Technology increases memory capacity in more cost-effective 2-socket serversThe Intel QuickPath Technology memory controller provides an efficient and cost-effective platform that supports optimal I/O performance

  • Slides: Deliver the Next-Generation Messaging SolutionNote: Here are some examples of what our customers are seeing. Let’s look at some specifics:Decreased time to provision new server resources from 5 days to 20 minutesReduced time spent managing physical servers by 80 percent - National FFA Org.5 times acceleration of application performanceCut time spent provisioning new applications down from seven weeks to a few hours -ConnectEduReduced operating costs by US$475,000 within six months of deploymentSlashed network outages, for cost savings of $100,000 per month- Seven Corners Inc.Additional Proof Points from Cisco Unified Data Center customer cases:Infrastructure costs:Audience View Tracking saw a 25% decrease in operating costsCineca was able to quickly and easily migrate 96% of our physical servers to virtual machines.“Disaster Recovery- Seven Corners slashed network outages, for cost savings of $100,000 per monthDeployment TimesAudience View Tracking reduced server provisioning from 1.5 days to 1 hourConsert was able to get the [UCS] racks up, configured, and actually have virtual machines running within about three days from when we took the products out of the boxNational FFA Organization reduced time spent managing physical servers by 80%Enspire reduced provisioning from 13 to 6 weeks, with goal of achieving 2-wk deployments
  • Slide: Cisco UCS for Microsoft ExchangeNotes:Exchange Server running on Cisco UCS meets the challenges of delivering a mission-critical messaging service while enabling the full promise that such a platform can offer, including:Agility—by streamlining the move to a next-generation data center and messaging platform and allowing for extreme scalability for thousands of mailboxes as business requirements change. Simplicity—through Cisco® Validated Designs that provide a certified, tested starting point for Microsoft Exchange deployments and by turning to a comprehensive data center platform that supports physical or virtual infrastructures, or public or private cloud environment. Efficiency—by enabling the holistic management of the messaging infrastructure from the software all the way to the bare metal while providing several key capabilities designed to improve performance and availability and reduce costs.
