Cisco UCS servers simplify your data center architecture — reduce the number of devices to purchase, deploy, and maintain, and improve speed and agility. Active data demands agile infrastructure built from ongoing innovation and delivery. The Cisco UCS S-series storage server delivers rapid scalability and performance to activate your data and insights in real-time. Cisco modular architecture lets you right-size infrastructure for the workload and operate with the efficiency and predictable TCO you need. Cisco UCS B-series blade servers are based on Intel Xeon processor E7 and E5 product families. They work with virtualized and non virtualized applications to increase performance, energy efficiency, flexibility, and administrator productivity. With Cisco UCS you get scalable, cost efficient data and analytics that position you to lead in the marketplace. Cisco UCS C-series rack servers deliver unified computing in an industry-standard form factor to reduce TCO and increase agility.

The Cisco UCS S-series storage server delivers rapid scalability and performance to activate your data and insights in real-time. Cisco modular architecture lets you right size infrastructure for the workload and operate with the efficiency and predictable TCO you need. The Cisco UCS Manager automates and treats infrastructure as code to improve agility and reduce TCO. Unifies management of Cisco UCS blade and rack servers, Cisco UCS Mini, and Cisco HyperFlex speeds up daily operations and reduces risks with policy driven, model based architecture. Composable infrastructure for distributed workloads. For cloud scale, grid, electronic design automation (EDA), online gaming, and genomic applications. Cisco UCS M-series servers disaggregate components and use policy based management to compose system resources.
Cisco UCS Subcomponents
Computing resources — this separation of components by the Cisco M-series server platform decouples the life cycles of the component subsystems. It is no longer necessary to replace an entire system because the processors, hard drives, or I/O need to be updated or refreshed. With Cisco UCS management software, the resources can be pooled and dynamically managed across systems, racks, and even data centers. Storage resources — the Cisco UCS E-series servers allows application performance to be optimized by composing and scaling subsystems to achieve the best ratio of computing of I/O to storage in small discrete increments. The design also allows for smaller increments of scale, so your applications have the number of computing nodes they need to achieve desired performance and availability. No more over provisioning and no more wasted resources. With this groundbreaking design, provides a highly dense, modular, and power-efficient platform designed to meet the needs of parallelized workloads.
Reduce costs without compromising vital network services with a router-integrated branch blade server. Cisco UCS E-series servers are virtualization-ready and application-centric. They are built with network, compute, and storage capacities for high-performance application hosting. Integrated network services can run on one blade, reducing CAPEX and service calls. Lower TCO through energy savings, wire-free setup, and one service contract. Gain consistent management and network services across all application servers. Cisco UCS E-series Servers are x86 64-bit service modules that reside in Cisco 4000 series ISR platforms. They balance simplicity, performance, and power efficiency. They are well suited for distributed branch offices with small IT footprint. Cisco’s newest 6-core Intel, compute blade has up to 32 GB memory and 4 TB storage. And 10-GE connectivity allows you to host twice the amount of network and application services. Cisco’s network compute engines (NCEs) are computing modules optimized for power and performance.
Enterprise NFV Support
Virtual network functions that run on Cisco UCS-E series include Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services with Akamai Connect, Cisco Virtual Wireless LAN Controller, Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance, Cisco Firepower IDS/IPS, among others. By redefining your network with software, you can deploy new applications and services on demand. You stay ahead of the game with the edge you need to succeed — no matter how many branches you have. To succeed in today’s digital marketplace, you need to work faster, cheaper, and smarter than your competition. There is a lot of pressure on your network to deliver the applications and services you need to do it all. As the demands facing each of your branches grow, you have to keep adding services to your network that deliver results. Cisco Enterprise Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) converts your critical network functions into software, making it possible to deploy services in minutes.
Cisco UCS Management
The award-winning Cisco UCS Manager is a model based, automated tool for element management that allows for easy integration with higher level tools using our open XML API. This streamlines operations and facilitates the transition to DevOps. Automate routine tasks to increase agility, simplify daily operations, and to reduce management and administration expenses. Cisco UCS Manager supports the entire Cisco UCS server and Cisco HyperFlex series hyperconverged infrastructure portfolios. It enables server, fabric, and storage provisioning as well as, device discovery, inventory, configuration, diagnostics, monitoring, fault detection, auditing, and statistics collection. You can extend the benefits of Cisco UCS Manager globally across an enterprise to thousands of servers in multiple domains with Cisco UCS Central software. Cisco’s open platform treats infrastructure as code. It extends the functionality of existing management tools through a broad, mature partner ecosystem.
