EMC and Cisco recently completed a joint project to demonstrate the High Availability (HA), scaling and Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities of a combined compute and storage architecture. The initial objective was to validate current established solutions for local HA and DR with the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and its new architectural paradigm. EMC and Cisco demonstrated that the current HA and DR design and solution paradigms do not need to be changed with the new compute-tier architecture that the Cisco Unified Computing System provides, and furthermore, using certain EMC Symmetrix VMAX and Cisco Unified Computing System technologies can actually increase the value of current designs for high availability and disaster recovery.
