True to the Internet of Everything (IoE), Cisco UCS Invicta transacts, processes, and analyzes more data into intelligence in less time. As a result, businesses create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity. Rather than trying to keep up, UCS Invicta customers set the pace.

Business Acceleration

Today's economy demands better integration between transactional data and real-time analytics in order to successfully react to dynamic business trends. UCS Invicta accelerates applications and, as a result, accelerates business.

Organizations can implement strategies faster by removing restrictions created by traditional server and storage architectures, eliminating data center bottlenecks, and helping IT keep up with business.

IT Agility

With this end-to-end IT solution, users provision infrastructure, assign resources, and accelerate performance all within a unified management solution. Customers can start with as little as a pair of routers and nodes, according to their needs. If more throughput is needed, customers can add routers. If more performance or capacity is needed, nodes can be added.

Operational Efficiency

Deliver additional business value and improve profitability by investing in growth opportunities and lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). An agile data center promotes efficiencies and consequently shifts funding from IT infrastructure and support costs to revenue-generating growth opportunities.

  • Reduce performance-tuning management and managed service providers.
  • Manage policy and service profiles through a single management console.
  • Retrieve lost performance. As applications accelerate, businesses create time.
  • Pay for results. Pay for the speed in which you accelerate applications rather than for capacity.
  • Reduce energy consumption, floor space usage, licensing and maintenance fees, and management overhead.

Application performance drives the speed of business. It is essential that these workloads consistently write and read data quickly. UCS Invicta Solid State Systems integrates application acceleration directly into the computing domain, allowing organizations to transact, process, and analyze more data into intelligence in less time. The system's scalability facilitates the acceleration of multiple applications at once.

Analytics and Intelligence

UCS Invicta gives businesses the capability to improve big data performance and analyze data in near real time using predictive and prescriptive analytics. This allows businesses to stay ahead of market conditions, rapidly compare what-if scenarios, and gain a competitive edge.

Batch Processing

Arm your business users and customers with real-time data to outpace competition with quicker data availability.

  • Reduce cost. Batch processing completes within SLAs, lowering maintenance needs.
  • Increase user satisfaction. The batch can run anytime without compromising other workload performances.

Database Loads

Accelerate database operations so that applications and your business can respond in real time. UCS Invicta application acceleration solutions provide SAP, SQL, and Oracle database applications the added boost they need to provide impactful results.
