Faster. Flexible. Agile. Unified Computing. The New Datacenter Model


Virtualization architecture with and without ucs
Virtualization architectureWith and without UCS

Virtualization has been promised as the answer. However, Virtualization Solutions to date only address part of the problem, and has done so by increasing operational expenses, infrastructure complexity, and risk.

Current

UCS

Virtualization

Compute

Network

IT must try to weave together network, compute, virtualization and management software

= High complexity and cost

UCS is a fully integrated solution and brings together network, compute resources and virtualization services

= Simplify and automate setup and IT operations, enable just-in-time provisioning


From cabling to your data center organization ucs simplifies
From cabling to your Data Center organization – UCS simplifies

What does your Data Center organization look like?

From ad hoc and inconsistent…

…to structured, but siloed, complicated and costly…

…to simple, optimized and automated

UCS simplifies

Not a point product – it’s a complete solution

UCS collapses the LAN, SAN and compute layers in one package

You said Compute layer ?

Yes, it means Cisco is entering the blade server market

UCS  blade servers, LAN/SAN access layers, unified IO, central point of management all combined with several innovative differentiators


Why we are where we are
Why we are where we are simplifies

Mgmt Server

  • Over the past 10 years

    • An evolution of size, not thinking

    • More servers & switches than ever

    • More switches per server

    • Management applied, not integrated

  • An accidental architecture

    • Still a 1980’s PC model

  • Result: Complexity

    • Server spawl

    • More points of management

    • More difficult to maintain policy coherence

    • More difficult to secure

    • More difficult to scale

Our Solution simplifies

Consolidated Infrastructure

Natural aggregation point: Network

Less overhead per server

Wire once: I/O on demand

LAN, SAN, IPC

Centralized management

Embedded native management

Fewer switches, management modules

Lower cost

Fewer switches, adapters, cables

Lower power consumption

Ucs management ucm unified computing manager
UCS Management simplifiesUCM (Unified Computing Manager)

Management GUI is hosted inside

the built-in Management-Node

  • As simple as pointing your browser to the switch’s IP

  • The GUI (called UCM) is Java-based

  • UCM is used to configure and monitor all aspects of the solution (LAN/SAN/Compute)

  • Key differentiator: the GUI is the one and only point of contact for all configuration and monitoring tasks

  • UCS is extremely extensible: it’s all XML behind the scenes !

Stateless computing

Nexus 1000V briefly


Introducing service profiles
Introducing Service Profiles simplifies

UCS Blades are very much like virtual machines in a Vmware environment

Configuration files store server characteristics:

Boot parameters

NIC and HBA configuration (MAC, WWN, etc.)

UUID

Various policies (what happens when a link fail, etc.)

All those items can be grouped in resource pools

Those service profiles are then mapped to physical servers to very quickly provision one or more appropriate servers

Server Profiles

Server Name

UUID

MAC

WWN

Boot info

LAN Config

SAN Config

PHYSICAL SERVERS


Stateless computing
Stateless Computing simplifies

Server identity no longer has to be tied to physical server hardware

Profiles provide identity

Seamless server mobility

Stateless blades

Boot over network (LAN or SAN)

Boot order and boot devices are part of the pre-defined logical server profile

On-board disks can be used for temp, swap, etc.

Server Name: LS-A

UUID: 56 4d cd 3f 59 5b 61…

MAC : 08:00:69:02:01:FC

WWN: 5080020000075740
