  • Fastest Growing Product in the MarketAt Cisco, we didn’t create just another server, we designed an evolutionary system that integrates networking and management and isflexible and scalable enough to handle any workload.We aimed to create the ideal, programmable platform for virtualized and cloud environments, and to help solve many of the very real challenges customers face. People said we wouldn’t succeed—we did.Today, Cisco UCS is the fastest growing product on the market. In just a short time, there are more than 23,000 unique Cisco UCS customers. Today, Cisco has the #2 worldwide market share in x86 blade servers. More than 44 ISVs write to the Cisco UCS API, and this number continues to grow. Tens of thousands of applications are supported on the system, so you can have confidence that the applications you depend on can be supported.Cisco UCS was designed with system and business performance in mind. As of September 2013, Cisco UCS has achieved 79 world records on performance benchmarks. The system has also received numerous industry awards and certifications.It’s also readily available, with more than 3,400 channel partners providing businesses with easy access to the technology.Let’s turn to how this innovative system can help your business succeed.
  • The Cisco Unified Computing System, or Cisco UCS, is the first truly unified data center platform that combines industry-standard, intelligent Intel Xeon processor-based servers with unified management, networking and storage access into The system is a smart infrastructure that is automatically configured through integrated, model-based management to simplify and speed deployment of enterprise-class applications and services running in bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud-computing environments. Cisco servers, combined with a simplified, unified architecture, drive better IT productivity and superior price/performance for lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Only Cisco servers integrate with Cisco UCS, and only Cisco integrates rack and blade servers into a single unified system.Building on Cisco’s strength in enterprise networking, Cisco Unified Computing System is integrated with a standards-based, high-bandwidth, low-latency, virtualization-aware unified fabric. The system is wired once to support the desired bandwidth and carries all Internet protocol, storage, inter-process communication, and virtual machine traffic with security isolation, visibility, and control equivalent to physical networks. The system’s 10GB Ethernet network meets the bandwidth demands of today’s multi-core processors, eliminates costly redundancy, and increases workload agility, reliability, and performance.Cisco UCS helps organizations go beyond efficiency: it helps them become more effective through technologies that breed simplicity rather than complexity. The result is flexible, agile, high-performance, self-integrating information technology that reduces staff costs, increases uptime through automation, with faster return on investment.
  • Cisco UCS Powers SAP HANACisco UCS powers SAP HANA, delivering a broad range of advantages to your business.Reduces cost while increasing manageability. The unified infrastructure inherent in the solution dramatically reduces the number of physical components required. The solution effectively uses limited space, power, and cooling by deploying less infrastructure to perform the same, or even more, work. For example, the unified fabric built into Cisco UCS results in fewer network interface cards (NICs), host bus adapters (HBAs), cables, and upstream switch ports and eliminates the need for parallel Fibre Channel or management networks.Scales out effectively. With Cisco UCS, you can easily add more compute and storage building blocks as demand rises. Your IT department can start with the compute and storage infrastructure needed today, and to scale easily by adding more compute and storage blocks as demand rises. Because the Cisco UCS compute and EMC [NetApp] storage building blocks integrate into the unified system, they do not require additional supporting infrastructure or expert knowledge. The system simply, quickly, and cost effectively presents more compute power and storage capacity to SAP HANA applications.Accelerates time to results. When your company needs to make important business decisions, the performance of analytic and business intelligence systems is critical. SAP HANA innovation, combined with the balanced resources of Cisco UCS, delivers rapid analysis and reporting at less cost. Your IT department can use more servers and distribute data loading and analysis tasks to take advantage of massively parallel processing. The balanced resources of Cisco UCS—processing power, I/O bandwidth, and memory capacity—help ensure your IT department gets more performance from your SAP HANA implementation.Offers visibility. End-to-end management provides visibility and enables the monitoring and automated remediation of physical servers, storage, and network.
  • Journey with lots of twists and turns…but ultimately will converge on standard building blocks which cover the full landscapeStandards with common architectural approach across deployment options will win out
  • Cisco and EMC: Providing Disaster Tolerance AdvantagesBecause the solution uses stateless blade servers, a failed blade server can bereplaced in minutes. The operating system, profiles, and data reside in storage and are managed by Cisco UCS Manager.In fact, all components in the solution—blade servers, storage systems, and networking components—are highly available, and in many cases, redundant.The Cisco UCS unified fabric interconnect can allocate any switch port to any job at any time. This allows failing storage ports to be repaired in minutes.Cisco UCS Manager provides real-time monitoring.The storage systems offer exceptional high availability features.EMC VNX Series Storage: High Availability and Redundancy FeaturesThe storage systems use a mirrored write cache for improved data availability.Battery backup allows for an orderly shutdown. Caches are flushed to vault disks to help protect data in the event of a power failure.The storage systems support RAID 0, 1, 1+0, 3, 5, and 6. Different areas of the array can uses different RAID levels.The storage system has redundant data paths, power supplies, drive connections, and storage processors, and supports hot sparing. All of these components can be replaced without disruption.Continuous system monitoring, call-home notification, and advanced remote diagnostics help administrators identify, find, and fix potential issues faster.
  • Cisco and EMC: A Building-BlockApproach to ScalabilityCisco and EMC use a building-block approach that makes it easy to scale SAP HANA deployments.With Cisco UCS, you can:Easily deploy and provision servers for greater compute capacityScale to 48 nodes and 192 TB of data (with 8-to-1 compression)Add plug-and-play EMC VNX storage building blocks, scaling capacity as your data sets growSimplify switching and networking layers, which means fewer networking components and less cablingStreamline management with Cisco UCS Manager, for end-to-end management, rapid provisioning of resources and applications, and improved insight into infrastructure operationNote for PresenterSolution details can be found in:
