Cisco's Unified Computing System vs. IBM Flex System: How Do They Compare?

Cover

“IT buyers who choose to buy less functional blade environments may actually be paying more in the long run thanks to lesser performance, higher power consumption, and additional deployment/integration cost,” according to research firm Clabby Analytics.

To ensure you don’t pay more for less functionality, let’s take a look at how  Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) and how Cisco’s extended memory servers, blade and rack designs deliver better performance than in years past, compares to IBM’s Flex System, which includes compute nodes (next generation blades), integrated storage (including internal solid state drives and an internal disk array), networking (including internal Layer 2 switching as well as access to Layer 3 Ethernet switching and Fibre Channel), PCIe support and more.
