Within the first weblog of this sequence, we noticed simply how straightforward it was to deploy a X210c Compute Node with Cisco Intersight. Final week, we confirmed how X-Collection can ship excellent efficiency for Oracle databases. Right this moment, we’re going to go a bit deeper on configuration and present how straightforward it’s to get nice efficiency with little or no effort.
All of it begins with a server profile template. If you happen to’re new to UCS, it’s straightforward to arrange swimming pools, insurance policies, and templates in Cisco Intersight. Our consultants have already performed a lot of the give you the results you want because the defaults work extraordinarily nicely in most conditions. With Intersight, you should use the API to utterly automate server configuration and deployment. Or use our GUI and have it stroll you thru every thing you want to configure administration, storage, and community insurance policies.
Let’s watch Technical Advertising Engineer Scott Garee undergo making a service profile template.
Rinse & repeat
As soon as the insurance policies and swimming pools have been created, you possibly can reuse them in your subsequent server deployment. You may also replicate and modify for various use circumstances and functions. An awesome instance of that is networking defaults by working system – see @3:21 of the video for particulars. Coming quickly, you’ll be capable of create one coverage for VMware infrastructure after which copy it and alter that one entry for a naked steel Home windows or Linux server. These defaults come from the 1000’s of hours Cisco engineers have spent on efficiency testing and tuning. Beforehand, these greatest practices have been solely revealed in Cisco Validated Designs. Now they’re integrated into Cisco Intersight. You possibly can leverage our experience to get nice efficiency utilizing inbuilt defaults.
Come again subsequent week and see these networking polices come to life with a video exhibiting single server 200G Ethernet efficiency.
