Cisco Unified Computing System

  1. 1. Cisco Unified Computing
  2. 2. Server Deployment: Rackmounts •First generation – Rack-optimized – Top of Rack or End of Row switches – CablesServer Server •BenefitsServer Server – Space utilization – Highly flexibleServer Server •WeaknessServer Server – Cabling – ServiceabilityServer Server – Power efficiencyServer ServerServer ServerRack Rack
  3. 3. Server Deployment: Blades Second generation • Blade servers • Integrated switchesServer Server Server Server Server Server Server Server • Fixed backplane Server Server Benefits Server Server • Space utilization Server Server • Cable aggregation • Power efficient Server Server WeaknessServer Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Server • I/O flexibility • Management Aggregation Server Server • Large chassis needed to Server Server amortize switch/mgmt costs Rack Rack
  4. 4. Server Deployment Management Chassis Management • New management layer Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Benefits • Consistency in chassis • Shared chassis infrastructure monitoring Weakness • Additional mgmt overhead • Additional cost overhead Server Server Server Server Server Server Server • Need chassis aggregation management • Artificial aggregation pointManagement Management
  5. 5. Server Deployment: Applications Application Deployment • Single application per OS Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Benefits • Isolation • Flexibility • Simplicity Weakness • Low utilization Server Server Server Server Server Server Server • Power & Cooling • Server sprawlManagement Management
  6. 6. Server Deployment Software Switch Software Switch Software SwitchManagement Management
  7. 7. Server Deployment Virtualization Infrastructure • Servers & Switches • Physical & Virtual Challenges • Many points of management • Consistent policies • Diagnostics Software Switch Software Switch Software Switch • Training • SecurityManagement Management
  8. 8. Server Deployment Today Mgmt Server Over the past 10 years • An evolution of size, not system • More servers & switches than ever • More switches per server • Management applied, not integrated Result • More points of management • More difficult to maintain policy coherence • More difficult to secureManagement • More difficult to scale Management
  9. 9. Cisco Unified Computing SystemMgmt Server • Embed management Mgmt Server • Unify fabrics • Optimize virtualization • Remove unnecessary – switches, – adapters, – management modules • Less than 1/3rd infrastructure
  10. 10. Cisco Unified Computing System Mgmt ServerA single system that encompasses: • Network: Unified fabric • Compute: Industry standard x86 • Storage: Access options • Virtualization optimizedUnified management model • Dynamic resource provisioningEfficient Scale • Cisco network scale & services • Fewer servers with more memoryLower cost • Fewer servers, switches, adapters, cables • Lower power consumption • Fewer points of management

  19. 19. Unified Computing System Manager• Embedded device manager for family of UCS components• Enables stateless computing via Service Profiles• Efficient scale: Same effort for 1 to 320 blades• APIs for integration with new and existing data center infrastructure
  20. 20. Service Profiles A service profile is a logical representation of a server that specifies its: • Identity—UUID, MAC, WWN, etc. • Configuration—Server Requirements, Boot Order, Firmware, etc. • Connectivity—VLAN, VSAN, QoS, etc. Policies PhysicalService Resources ServiceProfile ProfileTemplate Logical Resources
