  • Here is what we built UCS to do <br /> <br /> Customers told us: they were struggling to apply flash/solid-state technology in the environment <br /> <br /> Data Acceleration Layer for Applications <br /> Address scale of new data sets <br /> Address new velocity requirements <br /> <br /> Manage as a System <br /> Simplify infrastructure to drive TCO <br /> Multi-Workload / Multi-Tenant Flexibility <br /> <br /> <br />
  • Reduction in Provisioning Times <br /> Reduction of Cabling <br /> Reduction of Ongoing Management Costs <br /> Reduction of Power and Cooling Costs <br /> World-Record Application Performance Benchmarks <br />
  • In addition to the create buttons in the reports menu, UCSD allows the use of Macros to create customized workflows to help automate tasks. <br /> During the creation of a Cisco UCS Director workflow, you can use macros for Workflow Task inputs. During the runtime execution of the workflow, the Orchestrator replaces the values for each macro before executing the associated action. Each Cisco UCS Director workflow typically has the following components: 1. Workflow inputs that are defined by the administrator. 2. Tasks that are drag-and-dropped by the administrator from a predefined set of the task library. Each task has an ID, set of inputs, and outputs. Macros may be used for each task input. Any workflow level input or a previous task output can be used as a macro in a subsequent task. <br /> The figure shows the pre-defined tasks for Cisco UCS Invicta products in 4.1 UCSD.
  • Speaker Notes: <br /> <br /> The Invicta OS within UCS Invicta Series already resides on Cisco hardware! Available today are flash media management, data protection and de-duplication and UCS Director support. UCS Director support is a key differentiator that will enable consumer business imperatives – it allows for storage provisioning under the same management pane as the rest of the UCS architecture. <br /> <br /> The fuller vision of Cisco UCS is to have compute, network and storage living in the same architecture being managed by UCSD and UCS Manager for a fully unified Data Center management perspective. With the addition of UCS Manager, service policies can be provisioned in the same environment as storage policies. This will further eliminate Data Center complexity by reducing resource deployment from weeks to minutes and allowing resources to dynamically be reconfigured as business priorities change. <br />
