HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS: Comparing four typical datacenter tasks by the numbers

When you are setting out to evaluate different datacenter solutions, it helps to focus on the major items that impact operations.  Simply put, addressing recurring activities is the most impactful way to drive significant savings in time and efficiency. By reducing the number of steps in a reoccurring task, your time savings is realized each time you do that task. Of course, the more steps you have in routine tasks, the greater the opportunity for error.  Therefore, reducing the number of steps can also remove significant elements of risk from your datacenter’s day-to-day operations.

There are four server (compute node) recurring activities that come to mind:

  1. Deploying new servers
  2. Updating firmware and OS patches
  3. Taking advantage of VMware vSAN
  4. Setting up Boot from SAN

HPE asked Principled Technologies to do comparison testing for HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS on these four activities, looking at time to complete them, how many steps it took to do the work, and how many different tools (consoles) were needed.  You may find the results surprising….. “HPE Synergy composable infrastructure requires fewer steps and less time than Cisco UCS” 1.
