This will the first in a number of posts I make to catch up on the great content I’ve collected and bookmarked since I got involved in UCS.
Steve Chambers over at ViewYonder posted a use case for Cisco UCS that involves using the same physical UCS infrastructure to support (one at a time) multiple customers in a disaster recovery service provider type scenario.
While I don’t necessarily agree that you’d need to have a dedicated infrastructure for each customer without UCS, I think this use case is an excellent example of how easy it is to repurpose hardware quickly and efficiently – regardless of the reason. I’ll have another post soon discussing this very same idea when it comes to burst and redundant capacity for your various applications.
