All Unified Computing Products

The Cisco Unified Computing System is built to meet today’s demands while being ready to handle future technologies. That future includes more powerful processors and faster Ethernet standards. Cisco UCS helps to reduce total cost of ownership by automating element-management tasks. It does so with service profiles that enable just-in-time provisioning.


Unified Computing Solutions

The Cisco Unified Computing System represents a radical simplification of traditional architectures. It dramatically reduces the number of devices that you must purchase, deploy, and maintain. Cisco UCS delivers end-to-end optimization for virtualized environments while retaining the ability to support traditional OS and application stacks in physical environments.

At A Glance

The Cisco Unified Computing System is a next-generation data center platform that:

  • Unites computing, networking, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system
  • Integrates a low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric with enterprise-class, x86-architecture servers

This approach decouples scale from complexity. A given Cisco UCS might have 1 server or 320 servers with thousands of virtual machines. All resources participate in a unified management domain designed to:

  • Reduce total cost of ownership at the platform, site, and organizational levels
  • Increase IT staff productivity and business agility
  • Deliver just-in-time provisioning and mobility support

The system incorporates:

  • Standards-based unified network fabric
  • A partner support ecosystem of industry leaders
  • Cisco VN-Link virtualization support
  • Cisco Extended Memory Technology PDF (PDF - 150 KB)

The Cisco Unified Computing System supports an incremental deployment model. That approach protects customer investments with a future migration path to unified computing.
