- Cisco UCS E-series are installed into OSR routers.
- quite a lot of horsepower in there. Big CPUs, big memory.
- will be certified to run UCM applications for telephony
- are certified to run WAAS in a hypervisor (now that I think about it,
- Centralised manager is on the roadmap to remotely manage E-Series servers.
- E-Series blade has configuration options to be able to restrict IOS to Blade access. In the CIMC there is a “Lockdown IOS Configuration” button.
- server integrated into a Cisco router is covered by Smartnet contract of the router.
- If you buy VMware vSphere as a Cisco SKU, then software maintenance is covered by ISR chassis Smartnet. There are some interesting budget features on long term costs of ownership here.
