  • Notes added by Tjerk Bijlsma (tbijlsma@cisco.com) – please reach out if you have questionsA complete UCS system consists of all these components. At the bottom of this picture are the adapters that you need to select when ordering. These go onto the blades (you’ll never see the actual adapters as the factory will install them on the blades for you, but you need to select the adaptor you prefer – Emulex, Qlogic, Cisco VIC, Broadcom, Intel). The blades then go into the chassis and the chassis in the back has two separate Fabric Extenders (IO Modules) that provide the connectivity to the Fabric Interconnects.Up to this point (everything below the Fabric Interconnect) nothing has a management port. There is NO INTELLIGENCE in the components below the Fabric Interconect. We have taken everything out of the chassis and centralized it in the Fabric Interconnects.Every design will always have a pair of Fabric Interconnects providing 2 active-active fabrics for data forwarding. The management of the entire solution also runs on the Fabric Interconnects and is called UCS Manager. No need for a separate server – it is build into the solution, not an afterthought. And that is UCS.
  • Contact slide author (M. Sean McGee; seanmcgee@cisco.com) for slide updates or explanation if needed.As of release in Dec 2010 (1.4(1)), Cisco UCS now only needs 3 infrastructure management IP addresses for 160 servers compared to HP’s need for up to 7 management IP addresses for each chassis – or 70 management IP addresses for 160 servers (up to 50 IPs if using FlexFabric).HP with Flex10 (7 IPs per enclosure)2x VC Enet modules = 2 IPs2x VC FC modules = 2 IPs1x VC Manager = 1 IP2x Onboard Administrator = 2 IPsHP with FlexFabric (5 IPs per enclosure)2x VC FlexFabric modules = 2 IPs1x VC Manager = 1 IP2x Onboard Administrator = 2 IPs
  • Cisco UCS is unique in the industry: its open, XML API management interface delivers both the broadest options for third party management tools AND deep functional integration with capabilities only UCS can deliverAdministrators can manage UCS with their existing tools and gain the benefits that UCS provides without upending their IT Processes.Over 9000 objects in UCSM available to developers via XML APICOLOR:EMC UIM 2.0 enables Server/Network/Storage provisioning with deep integration to UCS and EMC storage.  Define a service consisting of a UCS Service Profile, network attributes, and storage capacity/quality.  Build out multiple instances of the service and automatically have server, network, storage ready to use, including the VMware hypervisor.  New product – demo at VMworld. Dynamic Ops Virtual Resource Manager implements IaaS with UCS and NetApp storage through an end-user multi-tenant portal.  IT architect defines available service offerings via UCS Service Profiles and NetApp storage resources. A user requests their services and VRM builds them including provisioning the hypervisor and VMs along with Windows or Linux OS either in a VM or bare metal.  New product – demo at VMworld. The DCA industry is coalescing around UCS as the platform for cloud and self-service IT.  One example of that is CA *and* newScale coming together with a combined solution atop UCS for that builds complete application stacks on-demand.  newSclae’ service catalog drives CA Spectrum Automation Manager to provision the app layer.  This is being show live in the Cisco booth at VMworld. Of course, we have a great story with BMC – Bladelogic unified HW/SW app provisioning with deeper UCS integration.  BACKGROUND:It’s important to understand the differences between UCS Manager and third-party management software and how they integrate for a complementary solution. UCS Manager is embedded within every UCS instance at no cost and focuses on infrastructure-level control and configuration.Operating systems and application stacks sit atop UCS to deliver business services. IT manages these software layers within a datacenter and across multiple locations. This is where third-party management solutions come into play.Numerous management software products have built deep integrations to UCS, enabling users to take advantage of unique UCS capabilities within the context of existing IT processes.At its heart, UCS is a standard x86 platform, providing a seamless application management experience.UCS service profiles speed application provisioning and make datacenter automation tools more powerful by extending configuration management to the infrastructure layer.UCS works with IT’s monitoring and performance tools of choice so that administrators have a painless experience migrating from legacy platforms.Cisco’s UCS management ecosystem includes leading systems management vendors, big and small, allowing users to pick what is right for their environment.UCS helps IT migrate services from legacy infrastructure by providing a seamless management experience with monitoring and provisioning tools. Monitoring tools combine standard UCS interfaces with UCS’s unified view of the compute infrastructure for deep visibility into application health.Provisioning tools deploy standard x86 operating systems on UCS Service Profiles to quickly build new application instances.Workload agility seeks to match application capacity with demand, leading to repeated deployment and configuration of application stacks. Deployment and configuration tools can provision the complete hardware-software stack by leveraging Service Profiles in combination with existing OS-and-above capabilities. UCS Service Profiles provide policy-enforcement to guarantee consistently deployed infrastructure.IT is increasingly turning to pre-approved service offerings that users and administrators choose from a catalog.Whether in the context of cloud or self-service IT initiatives , users and administrators want integrated services spanning server, network, and storage.UCS’s comprehensive management API helps unify infrastructureelements with pools and service profiles to speed the service definition and orchestration process.To achieve service assurance, IT proactively identifies and monitors application infrastructure to ensure customer success. UCS provides monitoring tools with deep visibility into network and compute health to proactively avoid service disruptions caused by performance bottlenecks or other degradation.Analysis and performance tools can quickly identify infrastructure resources and map their relationships through UCS ‘s unified interface into the compute infrastructure.UCSM Release 1.4 includes support for C-SeriesThe UCS C-Series integration with UCS Manager fulfills Cisco’s commitment to providing an easy, incremental migration path from traditional, operationally intensive rack-mount architectures to unified computing. Now IT managers have a means of centrally managing all UCS blade and rack-mount servers in a UCS Manager domain, enjoying the Unified Computing System’s unique operational efficiency and agility regardless of form-factor. Integration of the UCS C-Series into UCS Manager helps create a standardized, form factor-neutral, efficient, agile and scalable application service delivery platform.

  • Citrix XenDesktop on FlexPod – a derivative of the FlexPod solution based on a Cisco Validated Design – features the Citrix XenDesktop with the customer’s option of using a VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Citrix XenServer hypervisor. It is a pre-configured and validated architecture built on a flexible and secure shared IT infrastructure, which provides a self-contained, easy to deploy, repeatable virtual desktop infrastructure solution.The Citrix XenDestkop validated design on FlexPod was created to address business goal of providing more flexibility through desktop virtualization. As the mobile workforce continues to grow there is a need to provide continuous access to thousands of desktops simutaneously , to dynamically expand and contract infrastructure and to provide rapid provisioning and cloning of desktops FlexPod is well suited for XenDesktop deployments since you can take a building block approach and deploy virtual desktops in chunks of 5,000, 10,000 as required. Streamlines upgrades such as migration to Windows 7, lowers TCO and simplifies deskkop and application management.Target markets worldwide include medium size enterprises, and services providers across the financial services, healthcare, education and government verticals.
  • So—it’s obvious that FlexPod for VMware in founded on a data center infrastructure solution that is optimized for virtualized environments—but let’s talk pragmatically about what that means to an organization like yoursThis FlexPod configuration comes to you as a complete data center in a one-rack cabinet that you can deploy quickly and easilyAs an example, the base FlexPod configuration can support 1500 users for these four popular workloads simultaneously: VDI, MS Exchange, MS SharePoint and SQL Server. But, it’s key to emphasize that you can flex the configuration to your specific environment. That’s because we’ve remove the guesswork involved. You’ll be able to rely on step-by step design guides and sizing tools—that are specific for FlexPod for VMware.*Proven results based on actual customer experiences and benchmark studies Get more from your existing IT assets and reduce capital expenses of the datacenter by up to 60% (VMware)Significantly lower power, cooling and real estate needs and cut your energy costs by up to 80% (VMware) 54% less expensive to own and operate (NetApp)50% more efficient data storage (NetApp)
