Kevin Houston of Blades Made Simple comments:
Cisco is taking a very unique approach with the UCS M-Series. Veering away from the tradition server model of each server having its own NIC and RAID controller, the servers in the M-Series are “disaggregated” and share a NIC and Storage. Although this platform is ideal for nearly any single-threaded application, Cisco appears to be targeting the M-Series for “Cloud-Scale Applications.”
Cisco is really swinging for the fences with the new UCS M-Series. They want to put one in left, field, right field, and behind home plate. Read Kevin’s analysis for more details.
