Cisco announces additions to Data Center 3.0
Cisco Second Generation Unified Computing System and Nexus Innovations Increase Performance, Significantly Reduce Cost, and Simplify Business Operations
Cisco has announced additions to its ‘Data Center 3.0′ portfolio, which is designed to reduce IT infrastructure cost and complexity, provide better support for data center virtualization, and improve business agility.
The additions have been labeled as the ’second-generation’ Cisco Unified Computing System, which the company said furthers the promise of virtualization. It consists of next generation 2-socket and 4-socket server additions to the Unified Computing System (UCS) portfolio, thereby offering up to 50 percent more processor cores and four times the standard memory footprint. Even though the company states that there is a corresponding improvement in application and database performance, the specifications of the data center architecture is said to be capable of providing up to 10 percent reduced power consumption (compared to similar competitive configurations).
The company also expanded its Cisco Nexus portfolio with the Nexus 2248 and Nexus 2232 fabric extenders with 10-Gigabit Ethernet to the data center.
