Get a Solid Foundation for Server Virtualization

The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) is a next-generation data center platform optimized for virtualization that unites compute, network, and storage access into a single, cohesive system.

Server virtualization with Cisco UCS provides the following benefits:

  • Consolidated workloads, raised utilization levels, and reduced operating, capital, space, power, and cooling expenses
  • Ability to move workloads dynamically within a virtualization pool for greater flexibility
  • Optimized performance and service levels
  • Capability to scale existing applications or deploy new ones by creating more virtual machines using an existing pool of resources
  • High-availability and disaster-recovery features
