Cisco Enterprise Content Delivery
Network Solution—Cisco Content Engines

Above:

Cisco 500 Series Content Engine and Cisco 7300 Series Content Engine

Cisco Content Networking Product Portfolio

The Cisco® Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN) solution, running Cisco Application and Content Networking System (ACNS) Software, enables organizations of all sizes to reduce costs, drive productivity, and increase revenues by extending strategic applications from the data center to the branch, including:

Content and application acceleration

Access management and security

Video streaming

Corporate communications

E-learning

Point-of-sale kiosks and video displays

Software and file distribution

Cisco ACNS Software combines the technologies of demand-pull caching and pre-positioning for accelerated delivery of Web applications, objects, files, and streaming media which runs on Cisco content engines and content engine network modules, the Cisco Content Distribution Manager (CDM), and Cisco content routers.

Together with Cisco content delivery hardware platforms, intelligent Cisco ACNS Software provides the following business-critical functions:

Content edge delivery using the Cisco Content Engine or Cisco 2600/3600/3700 Series Content Engine Network Module to avoid WAN congestion by storing and delivering content at the network edge

Central management capabilities using the Cisco CDM appliance

Content routing capabilities using the Cisco Content Router for HTTP routing and the Cisco Web Cache Control Protocol (WCCP) embedded in routers and switches with Cisco IOS® Software

For ready-to-use live and on-demand streaming, customers can combine the Cisco ECDN solution with the
Cisco IP/TV® 3400 Series Video Server, which captures and delivers standards-based MPEG video with synchronized presentations, program creation, scheduling, and interactive QuestionManager features.

In the data center, Cisco content engines can be used with the Cisco CSS 11000 Series Content Services Switch (CSS) and the Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Content Switch Module (CSM) for reverse proxy caching, which offloads expensive back-end Web servers.

Cisco CE-510-K9 Content Engine

The Cisco 510 Content Engine requires a single IDE hard disk. Customers can optionally purchase a second IDE hard disk; however, there is no external storage expandability beyond two internal disk drives. Optionally, the Cisco Content Engine 510 can be configured with either a Fibre Channel adapter for interfacing with SANs or an MPEG video decoder for baseband video capability. Due to the availability of only a single PCI slot either the Fibre Channel adapter or MPEG decoder can be installed in the Cisco 510 Content Engine, but not both. (Part number CE-510-K9.)

Cisco CE-565-K9 Content Engine

The Cisco 565 Content Engine requires two internal SCSI hard disks. No additional internal hard disks can be added to the product. For storage expandability and higher caching performance, a Cisco Storage Array 7 can be connected to the Cisco 565 Content Engine SCSI connector. Optionally the Cisco 565 Content Engine can be configured with either a Fibre Channel adapter for interfacing with SANs or an MPEG video decoder for baseband video capability. Due to the availability of a single PCI slot, either the Fibre Channel adapter or MPEG decoder can be installed in the Cisco 565 Content Engine, but not both. (Part number CE-565-K9.)

Through a CLI configuration the Cisco 565 Content Engine can be changed into a CDM or a content engine. There is no additional licensing or customer cost to make this change. (See Table 1.)

Cisco CE-7305-K9 Content Engine

The Cisco 7305 Content Engine requires two internal SCSI hard disks. In addition, up to four hard disks can be added to the product for a total of six internal disks. For storage expandability and higher caching performance, a Cisco Storage Array 14 can be connected to the Cisco 7305 Content Engine SCSI connector. Optionally the Cisco 7305 Content Engine can be configured with a Fibre Channel adapter for interfacing with SANs. (Part number CE-7305-K9.)

Through a CLI configuration the Cisco 7305 Content Engine can be changed into a CDM or a content engine. There is no additional licensing or customer cost to make this change. (See Table 1.)

Cisco CE-7325-K9 Content Engine

The Cisco 7325 Content Engine requires six internal SCSI hard disks. No additional internal hard disks can be added to the product. For storage expandability and higher caching performance, an SA-14 storage array can be connected to the Cisco 7325 Content Engine SCSI connector. Optionally the Cisco 7325 Content Engine can be configured with a Fibre Channel adapter for interfacing with SANs.

Cisco Content Engine Product Function Matrix

A new feature of Cisco ACNS Software Version 5.0 is the capability of configuring certain hardware as a content engine, content router, or CDM. All products will ship directly from the factory as a content engine and in some cases the content engine can be changed into a content router or CDM with a command-line interface (CLI) command (Table 1).

Note that the product can only have a single function (content engine, content router, or CDM) and cannot be configured to perform all functions simultaneously. Existing hardware (Cisco Content Distribution Manager models 4650and 4630, Content Engine models 507, 560, 590, and 7320, and Content Router-4430) will operate with Cisco ACNS Software Version 5.0 but cannot be reconfigured, as described in Table 1.
