There are a lot of competitive claims made that pit one vendor against another. Its important to make a claim and back it up with the facts. Today I would like to share a fact-based analysis which validates that Cisco UCS enables you to gain competitive advantage by making your data center infrastructure more flexible, agile, and cost effective. As a result, the Cisco UCS truly transforms the business economics of today’s data centers.
The way we approach IT has been changing over the last few years. Executive management, employees, partners, and customers continue to demand more services. Waiting for applications and services to deliver information is not an option.
IT organizations are beginning to come around to taking a holistic perspective, one where they view their compute, network, and storage components as being part of a larger resource pool that has to be purchased, cabled, configured, powered, cooled, and maintained. When organizations look at their infrastructure holistically, they start to realize the cost of the traditional ways of doing business.
Cisco UCS goes beyond convergence by delivering the first truly unified system available in the industry. Cisco UCS takes a holistic view of the data center and takes a fresh approach to solving problems including management complexity; capacity planning and system refresh; delivering application performance; managing virtualized environments; lifecycle management; and server sprawl and data center environmental factors. Cisco UCS leads the way to gain competitive advantage by making your data center infrastructure more flexible, agile, and cost effective.
For example: did you know that IT administrators can deploy Cisco UCS in half the time and with 70 percent fewer steps? Did you know that you can pre-configure Cisco UCS servers when you receive system serial numbers so the system is ready to go live in minutes after it arrives at the loading dock? Did you know that Cisco UCS delivers scalability of large configurations for up to 52 percent less cost, all managed with a single management interface? Also, are you aware that with Cisco UCS you can get 20 Times Better Performance from Intel Xeon Processors and reduce your data center footprint by One Third?
These are just a few of the many facts that demonstrate the way Cisco UCS enables you to gain competitive advantage by making your data center infrastructure more flexible, agile, and cost effective. Please check our new in-depth brochure, Business Advantage Delivered: Cisco Unified Computing System, which provides additional fact-based analysis of how Cisco UCS truly transforms the business economics of today’s data centers.
We will continue this discussion and in my next post I will share additional information about how Cisco UCS reduces Management Complexity.
