Virtualization architecture
With 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
Network
Compute
Virtualization
IT
solution
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
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
Key Benefits of Unified Computing
System
Reduce DC power consumption by 33%
76 VMs per kW drives greater DC efficiency
Extends the lifecycle of current data center 5 years
Wire once, connect to any
40% Savings on Cable Infrastructure
$21M Compute Cost Avoidance
$92M Storage Cost Avoidance
Service provisioning reduced to 1 hour from 200
Zero Down-Time Operations

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
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

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

UCS Management
UCM (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 !

Introducing Service Profiles
Server 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 Name
UUID
MAC
WWN
Boot info
LAN Config
SAN Config
PHYSICAL SERVERS
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.
