The Most Powerful for Virtualization

Boost Data Center Application Performance

Your data center applications and enterprise applications can run better, at all levels, with Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). Cisco UCS combines servers, networking, management, and storage access in a single management structure. Bare-metal and virtualized applications perform better and your data centers run more efficiently with visibility across multiple data centers and geographies.

Data Center Applications



Cisco UCS and its underlying components give you a single-fabric data center infrastructure. Cloud-ready, scalable, and integrated with important Microsoft technologies, including System Center and PowerShell, our validated solutions optimize Windows Server and Microsoft.


Big Data - Data Analytics

Lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) with a proven architecture for data center applications, including Big Data and data analytics. With Cisco UCS servers, you gain exceptional performance, scalability, and availability. And you get predictable throughput and latency for your most demanding big data applications.



Reduce SAP deployment risk, complexity, and costs. Cisco UCS provides differentiated, scalable, and highly secure end-to-end solutions. Cisco servers are designed with the performance and reliability to power memory-intensive and mission-critical applications.



Get nonstop access to your Oracle applications and data at a lower TCO. Running Oracle applications and databases on Cisco UCS combines high-performance servers, high-speed loss-less networking, storage, and access, for validated and fully integrated solutions.
