March 2009: Cisco Unified Computing System
“Cisco deserves a lot of credit
for its industry chutzpah”
"The tough part here is that the server buyer has no relationship with Cisco.
And they don't know why they need one.” -Forrester Research
"A year from now the difference will be UCS is dead
and we have had phenomenal market share growth in
the networking space" – Randy Seidl, HP

Cisco UCS Mini Use Case : A Growing Coffee Roaster
› Scenario: A growing coffee roaster continues to add new customers for its custom coffee roast and needs to add new
staff and a more flexible IT solution that supports the growing business. The company needs to improve communication
between the front office and the roasting team as well as be able to run its order management system more efficiently.
Problem
Solution: Cisco UCS® Mini with Storage on Cisco UCS C240 M3
Rack Server with StorMagic SvSAN
› Need to reduce floor space
›
Servers consolidated into a single chassis, reducing floor space
› Need an IT platform that will expand
›
Easy computing and storage scalability: hot-pluggable in new blades
and drives
›
Large, shared storage capacity and exceptional performance improve client
service, without the cost and complexity of a SAN
›
Cisco UCS B200 M3 blades provide the computing power for VDI and order
management applications
›
Cisco® Call Home and Cisco UCS Central Software allows remote monitoring
and trouble-ticket issuing
› Need low-cost redundant storage expansion
› Require full-featured blades to run virtual
desktop infrastructure (VDI) for floor staff
› Want a service provider to remotely manage
hardware
35
Cisco UCS Mini Use Case: Retail Store Upgrade
› Scenario: A retailer needs to standardize its in-store IT infrastructure to reduce costs. The store already has Cisco UCS®
installed in its data center and would like to expand it to the 200 stores, but it has not been cost effective to date.
Requirements
› Standardize on a single computing platform in
stores and data center
› Provide high availability to in-store
applications, reducing costly downtime
› Need local access to customer data for in-store
orders
› Manage store environment from central IT
without requiring local IT staff
› Reduce downtime from remote system issues
Solution: Cisco UCS Mini
›
Standardize on Cisco UCS B200 M3 blades for data center and store
environments
›
Direct connect existing in-store Fibre Channel storage to Cisco UCS Mini,
eliminating in-store Fibre Channel switch maintenance
›
Standardize deployment of store configurations from Cisco UCS Central
Software
›
Cisco UCS Central Software allows central IT to monitor and manage Cisco
UCS Mini remotely
