I have been busy lately, but this weekend I was logged into YouTube and was suggested some new videos that had been posted called Cisco UCS Whiteboard Series. I looked closer and realized Jeremiah from Varrow has put together, what turns out to be a great series, five videos describing the pros and cons of 4 common approaches to implementing compute in a data center.
What I like about the videos is Jeremiah’s common sense approach to breaking down the evolution that has occurred moving from the stand alone rack server, to traditional blade systems, unified fabric/converged network to Cisco UCS. I recommend this series to anyone looking for more information about this topic.
