Cisco Unified Computing System

Management

Cisco UCS is managed centrally and is policy-based, which means you never configure the same setting twice.

Integration

The network is part of UCS, which means that you get a complete integration between network card and your fabric.

Automation

Because UCS is controlled by policies via a central interface that has APIs, you can easily program your server infrastructure.

Intersight

Manage and monitor all your servers from a common cloud view. Via AI you get tips on patches and upgrades.

What does UCS do?

Controlled by policies

In order to build uniform and easily controlled data centers, it is necessary to create policies to control the infrastructure. UCS is only managed with policies, which means that the configuration is only created once and then replicated to all servers of the same type. In the same way, you control firmware, boot-order, RAID or network settings and just as easily you add a new server that should have the same settings.

Separates hardware from identity

In the same way that a SIM card is a movable identity between different mobile phones, a service profile is a mobile identity between different servers. It contains all settings, MAC addresses and more and can easily be moved to a new server in the event of, for example, upgrades or replacement.

Lays the base for automation

UCS is managed centrally via UCS Manager and Intersight. Both have APIs and are policy-based. This means that you have all the prerequisites that exist for creating the automation to provision physical servers. Test more on the dCloud links below.

One platform regardless of form factor

Whether you run blade or rack servers, they are connected and controlled in the same way. You do not need a special system to handle the blade chassis and you do not need multiple monitoring integrations. Everything is neatly and neatly gathered in one place.

Why UCS?

More efficient data centers

Standard server systems require separation between the different networks and storage. This means more cables, ports and equipment. Cisco UCS combines all of this in the same system by integrating the network with the servers. This means simplified cabling, fewer ports and lower power consumption while increasing efficiency through easier management.

Combine with Hyperflex

You can use CPU power and memory from your UCS servers to relieve your Hyperflex system. Resources are placed on the UCS server and talk to the storage in the Hyperflex system. As an administrator you do not notice any difference, but as a decision maker you can reuse a previous UCS investment and you are allowed to scale flexibly.

Cloud-based AI

Via Intersight, you can monitor and manage your UCS clusters from one place. You also get recommendations on patches and upgrades, warnings for incompatible firmware versions and more based on Cisco's analysis for AI.

Test yourself
There are several options for you to test, evaluate and explore the possibilities and simplicity of UCS on your own. Via dCloud, you get access to Cisco's labs and environments.

UCS Kickstart

We have simple but flexible entry-level packages where dimensioning, installation and training are included. At a fixed cost, our UCS-certified technicians will help you until your new server environment is ready. Simple, safe and efficient.
