Cisco Upgrades UCS

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- IT organizations today are striving to establish data centers that support virtualization and cloud computing to become more competitive and agile, reduce the cost of physical infrastructure, and support the demands of data growth and Big Data analytics. Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced innovations across the Cisco Unified Computing System™ to deliver a third-generation fabric computing platform -- which integrates network, compute, virtualization and management -- to address these challenges and help customers respond rapidly to changing business needs, scale their data centers, and accelerate transition to virtualization and cloud computing.

The Cisco UCS™ third-generation fabric computing platform incorporates the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family and includes multiple server form factors delivering the industry's highest server density and efficiency, with up to eight times the memory capacity and four times the I/O compared to previous UCS servers. The Cisco UCS Manager now allows IT administrators to manage both blade and rack servers as a common entity, and extends the management domain to span thousands of servers across data centers around the world.

"Our customers care most about time-to-deploy business applications, application performance and unified management of bare metal, virtualized and private/public cloud environments," said Soni Jiandani, senior vice president, Data Center Group, Cisco. "Cisco pioneered fabric computing and service profiles -- still not duplicated by any other vendor -- which allow IT managers to deploy applications in minutes instead of days. Now with innovations in UCS Manager their integrated management spans rack and blade servers, and scales across data centers to thousands of servers globally. Our open system allows for structured integration with partner and customer solutions, making the Cisco UCS and the Unified Data Center a strong foundation for rapid deployment, performance, scalability, and ease of management," said Soni Jiandani, senior vice president, Data Center Group, Cisco.
