FlexPod Express with Cisco UCS Mini and VMware vSphere 5.5 Deployment Guide

The FlexPod Express model may be deployed as a “standalone” configuration, locally managed as an independent infrastructure. This means the local administrator would use UCS Manager and a local virtual machine manager such as vSphere vCenter to oversee the compute domain. The FlexPod® Datacenter solution combines NetApp® storage systems, Cisco® Unified Computing System servers, and Cisco Nexus fabric into a single, flexible architecture. FlexPod Datacenter can scale up for greater performance and capacity or scale out for environments that need consistent, multiple deployments; FlexPod also has the flexibility to be sized and optimized to accommodate different use cases including app workloads such as MS SQL Server, Exchange 2010, MS SharePoint 2010, SAP, Red Hat, VDI (VMware View/Citrix XenDesktop), or Secure Multi-tenancy (SMT) environments. FlexPod Datacenter delivers:

  • Faster Infrastructure, Workload and Application provisioning
  • Improved IT Staff Productivity
  • Reduced Downtime
  • Reduce Cost of Datacenter Facilities, Power, and Cooling
  • Improved Utilization of Compute Resources
  • Improved Utilization of Storage Resources
