Learn how Cisco is continuing to innovate by bringing together the physical and virtual worlds with UCS:

  • -beyond service profiles which can configure or reallocate resources to ensure applications and new services are running in minutes not weeks,
  • -beyond existing support for both blade and rack form factors in a single management domain,
  • -beyond supporting both physical and virtualized workloads in the same system,
  • -beyond a system that is optimized for the elements to work so efficiently together, that it has achieved over 70 world record breaking benchmark performance results.
