FlexPod Datacenter & SQL Server: A Championship Team Gets Better!
FlexPod Datacenter has been enhanced by the new Intel Xeon 3rd Generation Scalable processor based B200 M6. This is the ideal platform to host Microsoft SQL Server 2019 databases and applications. This new Cisco Validated design shows the best practices to set up this Converged Infrastructure to provide the best performance, quickly, leading to a lower total TCO for your organization.
Flexible Hybrid Cloud Networking with Infrastructure as Code and Cisco Nexus Dashboard
Infrastructure as Code is becoming the operational link between DevOps and NetOps. Working with Cisco Nexus Dashboard and Intersight, operations teams can tightly integrate and automate Day 0 to Day-N processes for critical hybrid cloud and multicloud applications.
Modernize Everything – Cisco UCS X-Series and Cisco Intersight
When evaluating servers for your next project, at the edge, in the data center, or someplace in between, you should also evaluate how they are managed and what else that management platform has to offer.
X marks the spot – Cisco UCS X-Fabric Technology
Cisco UCS X Fabric Technology is the second fabric in X-Series, named for its versatility and flexibility. While Unified Fabric is Ethernet-based, UCS X-Fabric blurs the lines between rack and blade servers. It allows you to compose system policies in Cisco Intersight and enables hybrid cloud services such as Intersight Workload Optimizer, Intersight Cloud Orchestrator, and AppDynamics.
Eliminate Network Blind Spots with Visibility from Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches and ThousandEyes
Deep linking and integration of ThousandEyes visibility with Nexus data center infrastructure provides access to the KPIs to measure network and application performance and quickly detect and resolve network issues.
UCS X-Series Intelligent Fabric Modules deliver simplicity and performance
One of UCS’ biggest benefits has always been Unified Fabric. That is carrying data, storage, and management traffic over a single wire. The IFM combined with Cisco VICs deliver Unified Fabric. Reducing the number of cables per server (CapEx and OpEx considerations but TCO will be in a future blog) while being able to deliver the right amount and type of bandwidth to the server depending on the application is the hallmark of UCS. With the IFM, UCS X-Series ensures fast and secure delivery of packages (data).
