Remember those who are keeping you safe today.
The Master http://ucsguru.com/ answers this often asked question:
“Our current Blade infrastructure meets our security standards, where we CANNOT have traffic separated solely by VLANs, it does this by using separate modules in the Chassis to which we run separate cables, and we are unclear if Cisco UCS will give us the same level of traffic separation”
“Have Fun” experiencing the spirit of Cisco UCS. UCS is one of the few pieces of hardware that has a personality, get to know it. Do more than just clone Service Profiles and piss-off Cisco TAC with zealous and rebellious disjoint layer 2. Create some art with UCS Architecture and administration. There is more to experience with UCS than the usual mediocrity a datacenter can offer. Imagine the manual for UCS being titled “Zen and the Art of UCS Maintenance”… and get to work.
I think a good tag line for UCS could be:
“Bite your teeth into the ass of life!” ~ Pascal from movie Big Night
Bach composed “Chaconne” around 1720 on the eve of the European Enlightenment. “Chaconne” is said to be a “Celebration of the breadth of human possibility”. Incorporate some “Chaconne” into your UCS Infrastructure.
“Chaconne”, music to UCS by!

Summary of article would be, “Cisco UCS is integrating with popular analytic software and common big data projects like Hadoop” Or you could say…
“Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data, offers a set of reference architectures and solution bundles designed and optimized with leading big data and analytics software partners including Actian, Cloudera, DataStax, Elastic Search, HortonWorks, MapR, MarkLogic, MongoDB, Pivotal, Platfora, SAP, SAS, Splunk, and others. These architectures can be used as is or customized to meet specific business requirements.”
Very useful PowerShell program to see bandwidth through UCS.
