Cisco Broadens UCS Blade Server Line
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco today introduced significant innovations to its Unified Computing SystemTM (UCS), delivering a broader and more powerful portfolio of technologies to help customers capitalize on rapidly changing landscapes in business and IT.
Built on the architectural foundation, partnerships, and rapid customer adoption of UCS, Cisco’s expanded portfolio addresses new market segments and use cases with the introduction of Cisco UCS M-Series Modular Servers for cloud-scale applications, and Cisco UCS Mini for small-scale and enterprise-edge environments.
Additionally, an expansion of the current UCS portfolio brings new levels of power and scalability for a wide range of data center workloads by unveiling new fourth-generation UCS Rack and Blade Servers for application performance, and new UCS Director solutions to manage Big Data infrastructure workloads.
“Rapid changes in the way applications are architected and delivered are being driven by the demands of Big Data, the Internet of Everything, mobility, video and cloud,” said Paul Perez, vice president and general manager, Cisco UCS. “We are in a new world where data sets and application scale are rapidly growing, and the opportunities for businesses to capitalize on the deeper intelligence and faster decisions they afford are really taking off. With this expanded portfolio, Cisco is delivering the largest wave of computing innovation since the original introduction of UCS – we are continually challenging and evolving how data center infrastructure should be architected and managed.”
