In my last blog I mentioned that we are rolling out a set of application specific migration and deployment guides that detail how to transition from a proprietary RISC/UNIX platform to the Cisco Unified Computing System. Our newest guide reviews the migration of Oracle’s Siebel Customer Relationship Management (CRM) applications from a SPARC/Solaris platform to Cisco UCS with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. All of the guides capture the key drivers behind the migration effort as well as the migration methodology, approach, best practices, and results. The Siebel CRM migration to Cisco UCS delivered dramatic performance improvements with fewer servers and lower total cost of ownership. Click here to go directly to the Oracle Siebel Migration Guide and see figure 13 and 14 for a summary of the performance results.
In addition, we have also recently added a PeopleSoft Migration Guide and PeopleSoft Deployment Guide to our arsenal of technical resources. The PeopleSoft Deployment Guide provides detailed screen by screen instructions on how to install PeopleSoft on Cisco UCS.
With an increasing number of customers migrating or planning to transition from RISC/UNIX platforms to an x86-based architecture, these guides can help pave the way for some of the most popular business-critical applications to be quickly and easily deployed on Cisco UCS. Check out our RISC/UNIX migration page to see all of our migration resources.
