  • First generation UCS brought the UCS Management architecture and unified fabric to market…Soon after, Extended Memory technology delivered both high memory capacities at full bus speed as well as significant memory cost savings…The UCS B230 and C260 offered industry-leading densities of CPU and memory…Next generation UCS servers enhance the differentiation along the same vectors…Next generation UCS servers will continue to employ these differentiated features and set new standards for performance and value in the x86 server industry.
  • Using the Cisco Unified Computing System as the basis for your virtual desktop infrastructure unites computing, networking, virtualization, and storage access using technology innovation to bring ideal platform for desktop virtualizationSpecifically, the Cisco UCS costs at least 20% less than competitors due to its radically simplified architecture requiring fewer components .Supports 60% more virtual desktops without impacting user performanceIs easy to deploy and scaleMassive Scalability – Full system scales to 320 servers x 120 virtual desktops/server = up to 38,400 desktopsLargest and most cost-effective memory footprint for a 2-socket server combined with screaming fast, secured I/O avoiding bottlenecks
  • Cisco has demonstrated 186 desktops on UCS B200 M3 servers with industry standard test tools.Our threshold for benchmarking is 1.5 sec for application response times, and 30 minutes for the environment to bootWe were the first platform to demonstrate virtualized PVS deployment and show how the bandwidth on the server is very important for the virtual PVS deploymentIn addition, we also demonstrate virtualized XenApp delivery with great densities – 208 session per B200 M3 server. Overall, the scalability, networking performance of the UCS infrastructure is demonstrated with our large scale validated where 5000 desktops boot in 30 min – so that the customers reach productivity fast.
  • Same setup for a single chassis and a single blade as it is for 40 chassis and 320 blades through dynamic provisioningDesktop 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. UCS can provide this strong foundation for your desktop virtualization infrastructure.
  • We are able to scale and manage the scalability through service profiles.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. Therefore for desktop virtualization allowing you to predefine templates for different types of workloads such as a View server or a XenApp server.Then when you are ready to scale out your infrastructure its as simple as copying a new Service Profile from the template and associating to a blade.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?
  • This is an example of some unique innovation on the UCS platform. Since QoS, bandwidth controls, and prioritization of traffic can be not only done on the access networking but can be extended all the way to the desktop. In this example, with Gold, Silver, Bronze classes of desktop workload running on the system, and a data center management action such as vMotion impacting the network behaviour. Without QoS controls, you can see that vMotion will occupy a significant part of the pipe and more importantly, it will have a negative SLA impact on the other desktop workload. With QoS controls, the bandwidth slicing is enforced to make sure the workload SLAs are not impacted, while data center actions such as vMotion complete gracefully.
  • With that, I open it up for questions ….Please do take advantage of our passport program. You only need to visit three more stations to enter to win wonderful prizes, including the JawBoneJAMbox … one of the top rated headsets for all of you on the go, as well as $50K apple gift cards.Thank you for your time today and enjoy the rest of the show and your stay here in Barcelona.
