It is a great way to get off the group with IaaS, Virtualization, Private Cloud, etc. Cisco UCS integration with storage isn’t limited to Vblock. Native Cisco UCS 10G infrastructure and VIC1240 & VIC1280 cards in UCS blades that can do 20G+ throughput offer massive throughput per blade to NAS and SAN storage.
