Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction, but could have been more., 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Implementing Cisco UCS Solutions (Kindle Edition)
If you are new to the UCS world, this is not the worst place to start. For a server guy, the integration and convergence of the network and server side can be a bit overwhelming and a steep learning curve. There are a lot of networking concepts and equipment (VLAN's, port channels, Fabric interconnects, spanning tree, etc). that need to be picked up in relatively short time, and when you add the complexity and demands of different networking requirements (iSCSI, FC, LAN) to a solution that uses virtual adapters, you need a book that will walk you through it.

This book is half-way there. Using the book alongside the UCS emulator will get you a basic understanding of how the UCS bits fit together and how they are configured, but there isn't much in the way of real world experience or recommendations here. If you want guidance on how many adapters to put on each blade, or the best configuration for boot-from-iSCSI using VMware, that isn't here. Sure, it will help you put your own design into practice, but you need to draw on other sources for best practices.
