1 Cisco Unified Cisco Unified Computing Services include the following: Architecture Assessment Service Planning, Design, and Implementation Services Support Services Optimization Services Security Services Accelerate Your Transition to a Unified Computing Architecture More than ever before, the success of your business depends on the availability and performance of your business applications and on the secure, flexible transport of information across your data center. However, many enterprise data centers remain complex and siloed environments in which servers and storage equipment are vastly underutilized, cycle times for provisioning new applications are long, and operating costs especially power and cooling costs consume an ever-greater percentage of the IT budget. More and more organizations are turning to virtualization to address these issues. Unfortunately, many virtualization efforts do not deliver the expected results because they focus only on servers, failing to account for storage, network, and other critical resources. Even though virtualization has been around for several years, only a small portion of operating system workloads has been virtualized today. Siloed organizations, with separate teams for applications, security, storage, servers, network, and facilities, present a complex environment for end-to-end approaches such as virtualization. Compounding the effects of organizational complexity, many customers struggle with understanding how virtualization will affect day-to-day operational and IT service management procedures. The innovative Cisco Unified (Cisco UCS ) data center technology was designed to address this issue. By unifying network, computing, and virtualization resources into a single, preintegrated platform, the system provides the foundation for a broad spectrum of virtualization and performance optimization efforts. Whether you are seeking to create a stateless computing environment, enable just-intime provisioning of resources, simplify the movement of virtual workloads, or reduce equipment and operating costs, the Cisco Unified provides a powerful solution. To realize the full benefit of these innovations, you need to Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. This document is Cisco Public.
2 implement them quickly and accurately, in accordance with proven methodologies and industry best practices. Cisco Unified Computing Services help sustain and optimize the performance of your unified computing architecture after it has been deployed. Providing a unified view of all data center resources and interdependencies, Cisco can extend the benefits of your virtualization project beyond the domain of servers alone and help you tune the entire data center environment to meet your financial and technical objectives. We offer a suite of services that can be customized to help achieve the specific goals you have set for your data centers whether you are adopting the Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers or the Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Servers. For example, we can help: Increase asset utilization by extending virtualization across data center resources Reduce your data center facility footprint and power and cooling costs by consolidating your web and application servers Address your requirements for business continuity and disaster recovery Cisco and our industry-leading data center partners bring in-depth expertise to help you implement these and other projects, sustain and optimize them over time, and realize the full potential of your Cisco Unified. Architecture Assessment Service The first step in applying the benefits of unified computing to your business is isolating your objectives. The Cisco Unified provides a powerful platform for a broad range of projects, from stateless computing to virtualizing resources to providing a flexible, secure cloud computing infrastructure. To fully realize your goals, you need a clear understanding of how the solution will support your project in your unique environment. The Cisco Unified Computing Architecture Assessment Service helps you to definitively map out the business and technical objectives for your unified computing project. This service gathers input from stakeholders across your organization to clarify your strengths and challenges and the issues that need to be addressed to make your project goals a reality. The assessment begins by isolating your objectives and mapping them to a set of best practices for achieving them. It then continues with an in-depth documentation of architecture considerations across your existing and planned data center assets, including blade servers, computing resources, applications, operating systems, virtualization, input/output (I/O), and system management. The service documents the challenges, critical success factors, and risks involved in your project and the requirements you will need to meet based on your projected environment and user Cisco and/or its affiliates.
