7 7 © 2010 Cisco and VMware Cisco and VMware: Virtualizing the Data Center Cisco UCS Solves VMware Data Center Management Complexity for the underlying hardware  Full visibility from one console –From software configuration settings all the way down to the BIOS: across servers, network, storage, VMs, and software  Service Profile Templates automate software configuration set up vs. one-off manual effort – stateless computing hardware  Simplify and control system admin tasks with role-based access controls  Automate movement of workloads to meet changing demand patterns and performance spikes  Automate discovery and population of configuration information to CMDB(s) via XML interface  Event reporting and incident diagnosis through built-in Cisco management software  Integration with leading service management tools Network Compute VMware Storage Turnkey solutions that is pre-built, tested, and serviced as an integrated product ie vBlock or Flexpod with VMware

8 8 © 2010 Cisco and VMware Cisco and VMware: Virtualizing the Data Center Introducing UCS Service Profiles (stateles computing)  UCS Service Profiles are very much like virtual machine definitions in a VMware environment  Configuration files store server characteristics:  Boot parameters  NIC and HBA configuration (MAC, WWN, etc.)  UUID  Various policies (what happens when a link fails?)  All those items can be grouped in resource pools  Those service profiles are then mapped to physical servers to very quickly provision one or more appropriate servers PHYSICAL SERVERS Service Profiles Server Name UUID MAC WWN Boot info LAN Config SAN Config Server Name UUID MAC WWN Boot info LAN Config SAN Config
