  • {"16":"VDI is already complex and many organizations struggle with the interdependencies of making the infrastructure components work together in concert. We offer a unified approach for server, fabric and storage that makes management and scaling simple to do, along with tight functional integration with Vmware mgmt suite\n","17":"<Tony> For your reference, we’ve included a more detailed slide on each of the bundles. I’d also encourage you to grab the link shown in the top left corner, and download the official brochure/flyer for the UCS/View bundles, which you can share with customers. What you’ll notice here is that we have the B-Series starter bundle on the left, which includes the UCS chassis, 2 fabric interconnects, 1 B200 management blade, 3 blades for hosting View desktops, and 300 Horizon View licenses. Use the SKU at the bottom to order this.\nAs I move to the middle column, you’ll see additional options for the starter kit. The Expansion bundle adds 100 Horizon View users, deployed on an additional B200 blade. We also have 2 upgrade options for the B-series starter kit, related to storage. If your customer is interested in floating/non-persistent desktops as we mentioned earlier, they can go with either the UCS Storage Accelerator, based on Fusion-io, which adds 785GB of on-board flash memory based storage, managed as part of the UCS blade, or they can go with standard 4x16GB flash memory.\nFinally as we move to the right, we see our options for smaller deployments. The C-Series bundle includes a single C240 rack server with 24 600GB SAS drives in a RAID configuration, and 100 Horizon View licenses. For customers who are implementing the ISR-G2 branch router solution, we also have a SKU for the E-Series blade, packaged with 25 Horizon View licenses.\n","19":"Slide is done\n","15":"The FlexPod is not a fix configuration. It provides an excellent starting point as shared infrastructure for organizations that want to run mixed workloads. The starting point is the MS Productivity Applications, but the FlexPod architecture allows different resources to be scaled while maintaining the same design and implementations.\nThe initial sizing guide covers the MS Applications (VDI Windows 7, MS Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, MS SQL 2008) and over time will cover many different applications.\n"}

    • 2. UCS Is To Physical As VMware Is To Virtual • Single point physical infrastructure management • Fully capable XML API • Policy based configuration management • Template based configurations • OS migration between physical servers Presentation_ID © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Cisco Public 2
    • 3. Network Integration of UCS Manager and VMware vCenter • No other joint solution moves network QoS and security settings with virtual machines, automatically and simultaneously. • Integrated port profiles and port groups reduce chance of error and increase security, eliminating downtime.
    • 4. UCSM VM-FEX Integration VM-FEX virtual machines appear in the Virtual Machines tab in UCS-M
    • 5. UCS & VMware Auto Deploy Automated Provisioning of Hypervisors • VMware Host Profiles completely define the hypervisor configuration • Cisco UCS Service Profiles completely define the physical server configuration • Autodeploy enables network based provisioning/booting of hypervisors • UCS Autodeploy integration allows for one click provisioning of fully configured hypervisors
    • 6. UCS & Auto Deploy Operational Simplification Profile-Based Provisioning Integrated with vSphere 5 VMware vSphere 5 Auto Deploy • Boot servers over IP networks using shared storage • Link each new physical server to a vCenter boot image UCS enhanced Auto Deploy Link service profile template to a vCenter boot image • Deploy many vSphere servers with a single click • Without UCS • Policy enforced: saves time and reduces errors UCS Enhanced Auto Deploy Associate boot image one server at a time Server #1 Automatically associate boot image Server #1 Server #2 Select a server: go to server element manager, find server, copy MAC address Select a server: go to server element manager, find server, copy Find Auto-Deploy Server #3 MAC address image: go to vCenter, select image, enter server MAC address Select a server: image: go to vCenter, select image, enter Find Auto-Deploy go to server element manager, find server, copy Boot Server #... server address MAC address server MAC Select a Find Auto-Deploy image: go to vCenter, select image, enter Boot serverserver: go to server element manager, find server, copy MAC address server MAC address Boot server Find Auto-Deploy image: go to vCenter, select image, enter server MAC address Boot server Server #2 vCenter boot image to service profile Link template Select template Server #3 Deploy new server Deploy new server Select template Server #...
