The Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS) Manager is a data center management solution that combines and includes virtualization, computing, storage access, and networking into one unified system. The UCS Manager can be configured using either a GUI web interface or the CLI regardless of whether it has one server or hundreds of servers containing thousands of virtual machines. The purpose of the system is to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) while increasing business agility and operate as efficiently as possible. Because Cisco UCS Manager supports Cisco and non-Cisco hardware, this creates a holistic infrastructure in your data center.

Cisco UCS Manager has many advantages aimed at serving your business properly and efficiently. The UCS Manager has an embedded system management that is integrated with each aspect of the data center. This integration creates an environment that is managed and operated as a single unit. Ranging from role implementation to the deployment of applications for hardware, security, and storage networking, Cisco UCS Manager enables infrastructure to be at its prime. IT can now focus on implementing solutions in a shorter period of time. One additional business advantage provided by Cisco UCS Manager focuses on cost. Cisco has unified fabric technology that passes all network traffic to parent fabric connections that eliminate the need for adapters, switches, and cables. The unified fabric deploys a “wire once” model, which means no more installation of costly hardware.
With Cisco UCS Manager, IT professionals are able to gain a single point of control. Instead of managing multiple technology portfolios and resources throughout the data center, UCS Manager converges all of the hardware into one easily managed system. Simplicity in the data center is a rare thing because IT is continuously demanding more complexity in applications. In order to streamline more efficient practices, systems like the UCS Manager need to be utilized. This sets the precedent and creates best practices for other organizations to use as a template.
