Cisco is creating a new UCS Architecture that includes EPIC storage devices with performance that will rock most needs. 4 million IOPS wth up to 40 GB/s bandwidth! New Nexus 7k series switches and Cisco UCS Director integrate into this new infrastructure. Director is still new to me, looking forward to checking it out. Also let’s face it “Invicta” is a bad-ass sounding product line. Cisco gets a thumbs up on that.
A 2U 3124SA UCS Invicta appliance offers the medium-scale environment a modular solution for I/O acceleration. It features 250,000 IOPS, 1.9 GB/s bandwidth, and storage capacities up to 24 TB raw or up to 64 TB with data reduction enabled. The UCS Invicta Scaling System is designed for organizations requiring enterprise-class scale, capacity, management and performance. It features up to 4 million IOPS, up to 40 GB/s bandwidth, and storage capacities up to 720 TB raw, and up to 1.9 PB with data reduction enabled. Unified Management of both the UCS Invicta Appliance and the Scaling System is done with UCS Director integration.
