CISCO UCS Functionnalities
Posted on 2014-08-02
I have done some reading about CISCO UCS.
To my initial understanding it is just a Blade server , like other traditional blades such as DELL, HPP, etc.. but with less wires to run in the Rack.
However when I started reading about its capabilities of booting from the SAN , then Service profiles, for now it is a little bit confusing.
If I understand each blade is one computer with hard disk, memory, cpu, etc... and on each blade you can install one operating system, such as Windows.
So why would they make it boot from the SAN, and why they create service profile, Pools,..
I have dealt with traditional blades, but cannot understand the functionalities of UCS.
