  • Economics are a huge driver for cloud adoption. Beyond agility, the cloud operating model has the potential to lower IT costs by enabling administrators to manage more applications and infrastructure than with traditional means. The IDC numbers show where IT budgets are going. Operational overhead is 70% of the IT budget. Capital costs are largely under control. You can always try to save a few percent on hardware cost. Power and cooling are important, but that’s not where most of the money is going. While virtualization has helped increase server utilization to keep capital costs under control, it has not reduced complexity. Hypervisors bring new operational requirements to IT, with increasing cost. Commodity cloud solutions address only part of the overhead – automating VM creation. Unfortunately, much of the operational spend is on physical server management and the dependencies between VMs, hypervisors, and physical infrastructure. UCS Manager provides infrastructure automation capabilities that work with cloud management software to streamline physical and virtual server deployment. UCS directly attacks the complexity problem in IT and enables a more effective cloud – in performance and economics.
  • Focus:Oracle due to their use of Cisco UCS internally (over Sun products) is endorcing the design benefits of UCSKey points:For past 2 years all Oracle sales training has been hosted on Oracle VM 2.2 on UCS with 1,000s of VM’s with 0% downtimeBriefing systems can now accommodate easily moving from DB to applications to hypervised workloads thus incrasing the number of customer demos per day compare to other vendor’s designsIf a customer wants to run Oracle NoSQL – the ONLY certified system they can choose is UCS. Sun and Exadata are not certified today (Aug 30, 2012)
  • Focus:Building a system design around the network, which Cisco develops, leads to albut ZERO data packet loss and hence no negative customer service and the bottom line.Key points:All DBA’s have experienced and worry about packet loss and how lost transactions lead to lost customer orders and impact to business’s bottomllineWhile a loss of a single packet is not critical to a small paint shop in Iowa  the loss of a transaction for the Taiwan Stock Exchange (which runs Oracle DB on UCS) could have a HUGE negative ripple effect in the exchange.Miercom – an independent thirdy party measured packet loss for UCS compared to an HP x86 server and the result are on the chart.This is a key benefit of bringing network technology to server design and one of key features that separates UCS from competition – including Exadata
  • VM mobility is a hypervisor feature (attribute).  However, domain of mobility is determined by the network protocol, for example VLAN.  This is because the IP address needs to be preserved during live migration (vMotion).  VLAN provides a limited, rack-wide mobility domain due to its limited scopeclick: There are network protocols that enable POD-wide, or even DC-wide VM mobility.  Examples are FabricPath/Trill and VXLAN.  With such broader mobility domain, compute infrastructure can be made even more efficient.  It provides much better agility because a tenant is able to burst anywhere in the data center – where-ever compute capacity is available..  Hence network intelligence is critical for broadening the mobility domain
  • Notes:The results below are an extension of the Proven Track Record of Performance for Cisco UCS:• Cisco has consistently set world records on SPECjAppServer®2004, SPECjbb®2005, and SPECjEnterprise®2010 benchmarks, proving the breadth of enterprise middleware performance that Cisco Unified Computing System can deliver All three benchmarks are powered by the latest Intel Xeon E7 family of processorsSPECjEnterprise2010:What means to Cisco: Another in a series of Oracle based benchmarks that demonstrates the superiority of Cisco UCS over our competition. Specifically:World-record in any x86 based serversWorld-record in any 2-node SPECjEnterprise2010 configurationsHighest per-node SPECjEnterprise2010 performance What this means to Oracle: Demonstrates the performance superiority of Oracle Weblogic over its primary competitor IBM WebSphere.What this means to Customers: Customers should seriously consider Cisco UCS to run their enterprise applications particularly those like Oracle that run on Oracle Weblogic and Oracle Database Some additional ways to phase this: Now customers can run their enterprise applications on x86 based Cisco UCS servers with confidence while leaving behind the vendor lock-in associated with costly RISC processor–based servers.  The benchmark results demonstrate how Cisco delivers an end-to-end solution with the server and networking product breadth and depth necessary to outperform the rest of the x86 server industry.  This result demonstrates not just superior performance, but also how customers can power their enterprise applications with a high-performance system built on industry standards: the Cisco Unified Computing SystemSPECjbb2005:What means to Cisco: Another in a series of Oracle based benchmarks that demonstrates the superiority of Cisco UCS over our competition. Specifically:World-records in mainstream enterprise servers (in both 2-socket and 4-socket categories) By setting records with two servers simultaneously, Cisco shows how organizations can use their choice of 2 or 4-socket servers to power enterprise middleware with superior performance. While many server vendors have access to the same processors from Intel, only Cisco has incorporated the top-of-the-line Intel Xeon E7 family into a flexible, scalable, blade form factor. What this means to Oracle:Demonstrates the performance superiority of Oracle Java HotSpot Server over its primary competitor IBM Java 9 VMWhat this means for customers: Further proof that Cisco UCS is one of the very best platforms to drive their Oracle environments
  • FocusJust a summary of the key points of this presentation
  • FocusGo for the close and try to set up the next meeting to discuss the customer’s environment in more detail, present more detail on our work with Oracle and look to get to the point where we can gather the data to do a custom sizing of UCS for their Oracle workloads.
