The CISCO Unified Computing System (UCS)
Be Ready for the Future
This is built to meet today's demands while being ready to accommodate future technologies including more powerful processors and faster Ethernet standards. is configured through unified, model-based management to deliver you the following benefits:
Reduce total cost of ownership at the platform, site, and organizational levels
Increase IT staff productivity and business agility through just-in-time provisioning
Help enable scalability through a design for up to 160 discrete servers in a single management domain
Programmable infrastructure by use of an open XML API to manage the personality, configuration, and connectivity of server and I/O resources.
Move Beyond Infrastructure Maintenance
IT organizations are looking for ways to substantially decrease cost of ownership while increasing IT business value. As enterprise computing systems increase in scale, they also increase in complexity. And as complexity increases, so does the expense of deployment and ongoing management.
CISCO Unified Computing System helps address these challenges by streamlining data center resources, scaling service delivery, and radically reducing the number of devices requiring setup, management, power and cooling, and cabling.
Separate Scale from Complexity
Simplify deployment of enterprise-class applications by implementing the next-generation data center platform, the CISCO Unified Computing System. Its major functionality area involves networking, storage access, uniting computation and virtualization into a cohesive system.
The model based design integrates a low-latency, lossless, 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric with enterprise-class, x86-architecture servers and separates scale from complexity. Whether the system has one server or thousands of servers, all resources participate in a unified management environment designed to reduce total cost of ownership at the platform, site, and organizational levels. Meanwhile, increase IT staff productivity and business agility through just-in-time provisioning and mobility support.
CISCO UCS enables operational efficiency with rapid provisioning of infrastructure from shared pools of computing, storage access, and network resources; facilitate scaling of IT infrastructure, through unified, global, model-based management with service profiles.
