From Pallet to Production – Big Data in Minutes

Behind the Scenes: Ready, Set, Go!

Don’t make your data center refresh more complicated than it needs to be. Installing the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) is seamless and simple—not to mention advantageous in more ways than one. Cisco UCS is an integrated architecture that establishes one cohesive system for increased business agility – a unified and virtualized data center that is easy to manage, so you have more time to focus on what matters most: supporting the business for faster, and better outcomes.  

Cisco UCS can be integrated with other leading IT solutions for ideal performance. For example, this solution brief explains how Cisco UCS is the ideal platform for deploying MapR to deliver a fully optimized Hadoop solution.

See for yourself how quickly you can go from pallet to production: watch this video demonstrating start-to-finish configuration of a 16-server rack with Cisco UCS—on the clock the whole time. Try to beat that.
