On April 5th, 2011, Cisco participated in the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 Product Family Announcement with NINE new world record performance benchmark results highlighting the Cisco Unified Computing System’s outstanding performance and IT productivity across key data center workloads. Cisco also announced the broadening of its server portfolio with the introduction of the Cisco UCS C260 enterprise server, an Intel Xeon processor E7 family based platform designed for most data demanding business critical IT challenges. The Cisco Unified Computing System’s outstanding performance benchmark results are highlighted in the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 Family-based Platform Performance Highlights (April 5, 2011) announcement.
Fundamentally, this record setting performance further reinforces the Cisco Unified Computing System’s ability to deliver next generation compute across bare-metal, high performance computing (HPC) and in the most complex virtualization and cloud computing environments in the data center. Check out the Performance Brief for additional information on the nine new Cisco UCS world record benchmarks. The detailed benchmark disclosure reports are available here.
So the momentum continues…In two short years, the Cisco UCS has captured over 40 world records for performance and IT productivity taking its place among the most trusted server vendors on the market. Check out the Cisco Unified Computing System™ Performance Leadership Presentation.
It demonstrates the breadth of Cisco’s Unified Computing System™ product line and highlights the way Cisco UCS can accelerate performance across the data center – including delivering raw computing power for individual servers, high-performance computing (HPC) grids, powering Java application servers, and the most complex virtualization and cloud-computing workloads.
The architectural advantages of a single cohesive system optimized for virtualized environments coupled with the industry leading performance validated by World Record Industry-Standard Benchmarks makes the Cisco Unified Computing System an “infrastructure platform of choice” to provide industry-leading performance in a converged infrastructure in your data center.
These results further reinforce the fact that Cisco is not just selling servers—it is re-inventing the server market.
