Summary

UCS architecture adds value by building in the network, policy, and


single plane of management.

HyperFlex brings with it the HX 220c and the HX 240c.

HyperFlex uses the UCS 5100 Series Blade Server Chassis to hold
compute only nodes.

Power requirements of the Cisco UCS B-Series are simple and


redundant.
