  • 27. 27 “Firmware upgrades are much easier, too. In our old environment, a firmware upgrade would take several days to complete. With UCS, we can finish one in a single night. Since we do that roughly once per quarter, we’re saving about a week’s worth of time every year on that one task alone.” 77% reduction of ongoing administrative/management costs based on 29 customers. Source: Customer Case Studies, see Cisco Data Center and Cloud Blog Posts http://blogs.cisco.com/datacenter/cisco-ucs-year-end-tco-wrap-up/ Average savings reported by 29 UCS Customers 77% Reduction of Ongoing Management Cost Support time was also cut dramatically. Thomas and the rest of the team have been freed to work on new projects in what he estimates is a twentyfold increase in productivity. Time saved is now being directed toward expanding the internal team’s expertise and experience with other technologies and applications, as well as launching new initiatives. “Consequently, PLAZAMEDIA service provisioning and change management are five to 10 times faster than before, while server decommissioning can be accomplished at least 50 percent faster. Increased administrative efficiency has freed IT staff to concentrate on more strategic issues.” © 2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Source: Customer Case Studies, see Cisco Data Center and Cloud Blog Posts http://blogs.cisco.com/datacenter/cisco-ucs-year-end-tco-wrap-up/ Average savings reported by 53 UCS Customers 53% Reduction of Power and Cooling Costs Lowered power usage by 66% “Our previous servers were 2U with 128 gigs of RAM, holding around 35 virtual machines [VMs], but using 2.5 watts of power per VM,” says Leonard [Gary, Dynamic Data Center Consultant]. “In comparison, the UCS blades are half a U [half slot] with 196 gigs of RAM, can hold around 50 virtual machines, and only use 0.85 watts of power per VM.” Reduced power consumption by 94% Power usage has also gone down a full 94 percent. “When I joined Young America, we were operating 41 racks and related gear nonstop. The room was hot, and we were running out of power,” says Bienapfl. With UCS, he’s been able to optimize computing resources and achieve a 10-to-1 compaction ratio. “We’ll soon be running our entire operations on just five racks,” he says. “We’re already starting to turn off cooling units and downsize UPS systems.” Energy savings were considerable and exceeded our initial target of a 30% reduction, reaching a total reduction of about 50%. “Outside visitors are surprised by our server room. Looked at purely from the servers, slightly greater energy savings are possible, but energy savings for the system as a whole, including other devices, are settled at about 50%." © 2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

The company also achieved a $475,000 reduction in operating costs within the first six months of buildout and saved $84,000 instantly by not having to renew software licenses on a number of virtualized servers © 2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

RUN AG We used to spend 1.5 days provisioning a new server. Now its 60 minutes. “We used to spend up to a day and a half provisioning a new server. Now we can do that in 60 minutes.” “Now that we can provision our environment on demand, we’re able to summon enormous computing power in almost no time at all. We don’t need to reserve capacity that we’ll never use. In short, we can drastically minimize wasted time and resources while responding much more quickly to customers’ needs.” Gopi Balasingam, Vice President of Operations CEIA has seen an almost 100 percent improvement in server deployment times, along with a 50 percent increase in server efficiency.

  • 38. 38 Cisco helped all of us rethink the server architecture with UCS, and I would have never though that I’d say this was 3 years ago when they came out with it; the UCS architecture changed the industry by paving the way to the logical disaggregation of the physical server through fabric computing they proved that you can buy white box components from any vendor, even one that had never build servers before, and pay a premium for them, as long as they’re assembled to achieve a true separation of logical and physical design; Cisco did that with blades and is now doing the same with rack-mount servers, and they’re selling a ton of them; the interesting thing is that while everybody though that true virtualization would lead to a drop in the price point of servers, this innovation has had the opposite effect, because customers are starting to realize that TCO is way more important than the cost of servers; don’t tell vendors that I said this when you negotiate with them, but a couple of percentage points in price pale in comparison to all the other costs; power and cooling alone will cost you more than initial purchase price over the lifetime of a server. David Cappuccio Managing V.P. and Chief of Research at Gartner From keynote address “The Infinite Data Center” delivered at Gartner Data Center Conference London Nov 2012 Endorsement for UCS Cisco helped all of us rethink the server architecture with UCS. UCS architecture changed the industry by paving the way to the logical disaggregation of the physical server through fabric computing. TCO is way more important than the cost of servers.
