UCS Storage Interoperability Matrix


The following table lists storage systems that have been qualified by the Original Storage Manufacturers (OSMs), Cisco Partners, and the Cisco Storage Enterprise Assurance Lab (SEAL) to support seamless deployment of networks using Cisco Unified Computing System products.


Note Starting with Cisco UCS B-Series Release 2.0(2), interoperability information for storage devices and UCS servers is maintained in the Hardware and Software Interoperability Matrix for B Series Servers in Release 2.0(2).

Notes:

1) For detailed information on supported Servers, CNAs, and drivers, refer to the Cisco Hardware and Software Interoperability Matrix: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10477/prod_technical_reference_list.html

2) Refer to the EMC ESM matrix for support storage firmware versions and specific supported configuration information: http://www.emc.com/products/interoperability/

3) Direct-Attached FC storage to 6120XP/6140XP/6248UP is supported in release 1.4(1) and higher. However, it is restricted to topologies in which the zoning database is provided from an upstream Cisco MDS 9000 switch or Nexus 5000 or 5500 switch.

4) Refer to NetApp NOW for more information on supported Data ONTAP versions and specific supported configuration information: http://now.netapp.com/matrix

1 As of July 2011, UCS Series B switches no longer support McData directors and switches.

2 The 6100 fabric interconnect firmware is included in the UCS code bundle

3 NPV support mode only.

4 Switch Management Application Revision: The use of mixed code revisions in the same fabric should be limited to code upgrade processes only. You must always use the management code rev. associated with the highest level of switch code
