Cisco UCS Service Profile Templates for Big Data
Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) service profiles are a powerful means for streamlining the configuration and management of Cisco UCS servers. They provide a mechanism for rapidly provisioning servers and their associated network connections with consistency in all details of the environment. They can be set up in advance before physically installing the servers.
Service profiles are built on policies—Administrator-defined sets of rules and operating characteristics such as the server identity, interfaces, and network connectivity. Every active server in your Hadoop cluster must be associated with a service profile.
The Cisco UCS service profile template for the Big Data enables you to set up the configuration for the servers in your Hadoop cluster. The service profile template for Big Data is included in a cluster deploy template. When the cluster deploy template is applied to the servers, the service profile template configures one or more service profiles that are applied to the servers.
The service profile template for Big Data wizard gathers the information required to create a service profile template. You can only apply this service profile template through the cluster deploy template.
For more information about service profiles and service profile templates, see the Cisco UCS Manager configuration guides.
