  1. Unified Computing Vincent Meoni Data Center Systems Engineer DataCenter Switching: FC, Ethernet, FCoE, Blade Switching WAAS, Content Switching, xWDM, Unified Computing Systems vmeoni@cisco.com

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. Key Benefits of Unified Computing System

  5. Agenda What is UCS ? UCS Components What is the UCS differentiator ? Nexus 1000V briefly

  6. UCS 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

  7. Why we are where we are 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

  8. Embed management Consolidate LAN & SAN switches Remove Blade switches Adapters Management modules Less than 1/3rd infrastructure How UCS Compares to Other Blades Mgmt Server Mgmt Server Mgmt Server

  9. Our Solution 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

  18. UCS ManagementUCM (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 !

  19. Agenda What is UCS ? UCS Components What is the UCS differentiator ? Stateless computing Nexus 1000V briefly

  20. Introducing Service Profiles 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

  21. Stateless Computing 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 Boot Order: SAN, LAN SAN LAN Chassis-1/Blade-1 Chassis-9/Blade-5
