BenchmarkCisco UCS benchmarking success in the Big Data space continues. We invest and lead in Big Data workload benchmark tests as these workloads are commonly found in UCS-oriented Data Centers around the world.

The guiding principles our Cisco UCS teams follow for benchmarking in the Big Data arena are:

  • A Commitment to Industry Standards

Cisco continues to demonstrate its commitment to industry-standard benchmarks by being the first vendor to publish TPC Express Benchmark-HS (TPCx-HS) results using the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 family

  • Drive Accelerated Big Data Benchmark Results

Cisco was the first vendor ever to publish TPCx-HS results. These new results establish Cisco as the industry performance leader at scale factors of 1 and 10 terabytes (TB).

  • Deliver A Fair Comparison Standard

Test against the TPCx-HS benchmark as it is designed to provide a fair standard of comparison for big data hardware and software configurations.

  • Showcase Performance and Scalability

The benchmark results reported highlight the performance and scalability of Cisco UCS® Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data.

Benchmark Table

From our March 2016 Cisco UCS Performance Brief, Table 1 above lists our most recent results based on our fourth-generation Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data architecture. As you can see Cisco provides a proven variety of UCS configurations that deliver industry-leading performance. For Big Data, speed is paramount and Cisco UCS delivers the speed you you need.
