Introduction

UCS Server Optimized for On-premise Cloud Environments and Hyper Converged Solution
SISCO UCS server and Hyperflex, a hyper converged solution, have the ability to configure Cloud environments efficiently. UCS blade server is a new generation data center platform which unites computing, network, storage, access and virtualization into a cohesive single system in order to strengthen business flexibility and reduce TCO. In addition, as a new generation hyper converged solution, it overcomes complicated operation models in establishing the previous network, servers, storage in a silo manner. Therefore, it provides consistent architecture by the rapid deployment of servers and storage, flexible expansion, operational efficiency and network integration.
