Do more today, save money tomorrow with UCS X-Series
I’ve been working on Cisco UCS TCO/ROI for almost 12 years. The results have remained remarkably consistent, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned over the last decade plus.
The advantage of partnerships – Cisco UCS X-Series Solutions
Cisco has always partnered with industry leaders to deliver best of breed solutions as well as flexibility and choice. With the introduction of UCS X-Series, we have again partnered with industry leaders to deliver innovative solutions with our converged infrastructure and data protection partners.
Cisco UCS X-Series powers modern applications
we designed the Cisco UCS X-Series with the flexibility to support a wider range of applications. Previously, you might have used blade servers and rack servers depending upon the need for local storage or expansion cards. Now, a single system blurs those lines, Cisco UCS X-Series. This means that fewer system types can do the job, helping you avoid the cost and complexity of unique infrastructure.
Cisco UCS X-Series achieves 35 million IOPS performance in a single chassis
Modern enterprise computing workloads are adapting to a hyper-distributed and hyper-connected world where apps, devices, and data can be accessed anywhere and anytime. In turn, advancements in application architectures made it possible to deliver workloads in a variety of ways including as microservices wrapped in containers and virtual machines.
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.
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).
The power of possibilities – Cisco UCS X210c M6 Compute Node
Cisco UCS X-Series was designed to be modular, expandable, and blur the lines between blade and rack servers. It all starts with the Cisco UCS X210c Compute Node.
The power of innovation– Cisco UCS X9508 Chassis
The Cisco UCS X-Series begins with the Cisco UCS X9508 Chassis. Our engineering teams rethought everything: modularity, size, power, cooling, and fabrics. The result is a great infrastructure choice to base your hybrid cloud computing platform for the next decade.
