5.0 out of 5 stars Data center are evolving. You better read this book !, February 6, 2011
This review is from: Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) (Data Center): A Complete Reference Guide to the Cisco Data Center Virtualization Server Architecture (Networking Technology) (Paperback)
I had the chance to work in a new data center environment. We bought some UCS so I had to read that book and if I had to say a word about it, it would be : G R E A T !

As I said in the title, many of us are old enough to see how the DC evolved since 2000. There are so many technology and products that are now used. Cisco tried to get into the server market with the UCS and all I can say is that I m glad they did :)

The first chapter gives a "brief" explanation about Data center and their challenge.

Chapter 2 is more based on the UCS architecture:
This will be easier to understand for System admin than pure network engineer :) I loved that part very much because lots of diagram and picture are explaining how the hardware works.

Then after this "light" part, the authors are diving into the technology.

All the technologies that are part of the UCS are very well detailed :
10gig, FCOE, PFC, Virtualization etc etc.

This book also introduce some 10gig controllers made by Intel.

The way the book is written helps you to master the topics. Even for non native english speakers, it is very easy to understand ...

If you are interested in UCS or going to implement into your network, this is definitely the book you need to read from cover to cover !
