Coming soon … Cisco UCS Express

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, Cisco has a server line of products. That we already knew. Cisco has recently announced that they will start selling a version of the UCS that will fit into their routers. To that I say, “About freaking time!”. This is a great idea and one of the ways that I think that Cisco should have tried to move towards much more quickly. Think about the scenario where you have a branch that is relatively small. Let’s say 15 office workers just for example sake. What do those users need in a large enterprise that has branches? They need a local file/pricnt, router, IPSec tunnel to the HQ, maybe WAN optimization and likely phones so SRST/SRSV. That can now all be delivered in one box with redundant power supplies.

This means that you no longer need to provide a separate system for the servers at your branches. Now given that this hardware also supports VMware it makes deployment and support very very easy.

Until next time,
