The Unified Data Center – Computing, Fabric and Management

As your data center evolves from the physical to the virtual and onto the cloud you need to have systems that adapt simply, perform optimally and remain secure. This paper provides an overview of the Cisco Unified Data Center and provides a look into a platform that offers these benefits and more.

Cisco has created a holistic structure by combining a service ecosystem while blending three of the most important technologies in the data center, these are classified as:
• Cisco Unified Computing – a scalable integration of computing, networking and storage
• Cisco Unified Fabric – end to end fabric at half the cost of competitive systems and twice the scalability
• Cisco Unified Management – Award winning solutions for IT service-creation and self-service capabilities

Considering a new framework may seem daunting and have you questioning if it’s worth the investment. But, an assessment of both CapEx and OpEx will prove otherwise. Read this overview and understand why an evolving data center should not be piecemealed as it grows but should be planned for maximum business and revenue potential.
