SingleConnect Technology: Simplify Server Connectivity

Category: Cyber Security   |   Presented By: Cisco SingleConnectTechnology

Cisco SingleConnect technology treats physical servers and virtual machines in the
same way. In Cisco UCS, every I/O connection, whether for networking, storage
access, or management, is virtual. Every network link originates in the fabric
interconnects and is brought to each blade server, rack server, and virtual machine
through Cisco FEX Technology (Figure 4). So, for example, if a web server or voice
application is run in a virtual machine, dynamically created NICs can attach to the
virtual machine with the right security and QoS settings established for the duration
of the virtual machine’s lifecycle

Cisco SingleConnect technology is responsible for increased network bandwidth,
accelerating activities such as the movement of virtual machines between servers,
and for lower network latency, helping accelerate transactional applications. This
better network is one reason that Cisco has set more than 70 world records on
industry-standard benchmarks for scenarios ranging from enterprise applications
and databases to virtualized and cloud computing environments.
