Cisco Unified Computing System Overview
The Cisco Unified Computing System ™ is a next-generation data center platform that unites compute, network,
storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and
increase business agility. The system integrates a low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network
fabric with enterprise-class, x86-architecture servers. The system is an integrated, scalable, multichassis
platform in which all resources participate in a unified management domain (Figure 1).

Technical Information Spec Sheet for Cisco UCS 6120XP Fabric Interconnect
Product Overview
The Cisco ® UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnects are a core part of the Cisco Unified Computing System,
providing both network connectivity and management capabilities for the system (Figure 2). The Cisco UCS
6100 Series offers line-rate, low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
functions.
The Cisco UCS 6100 Series provides the management and communication backbone for the Cisco UCS BSeries Blade Servers and UCS 5100 Series Blade Server Chassis. All chassis, and therefore all blades, attached
to the Cisco UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnects become part of a single, highly available management
domain. In addition, by supporting unified fabric, the Cisco UCS 6100 Series provides both the LAN and SAN
connectivity for all blades within its domain.
From a networking perspective, the Cisco UCS 6100 Series uses a cut-through architecture, supporting
deterministic, low-latency, line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports, independent of packet size and enabled
services. The product family supports Cisco low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet 1 unified network fabric
capabilities, which increase the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. The fabric interconnect
supports multiple traffic classes over a lossless Ethernet fabric from the blade through the interconnect.
Significant TCO savings come from an FCoE-optimized server design in which network interface cards (NICs),
host bus adapters (HBAs), cables, and switches can be consolidated.

Unified Fabric with FCoE: I/O Consolidation

Technical Information Spec Sheet for Cisco UCS 6120XP Fabric Interconnect
The Cisco UCS 6100 Series is built to consolidate LAN and SAN traffic onto a single unified fabric, saving the
capital and operating expenses associated with multiple parallel networks, different types of adapter cards,
switching infrastructure, and cabling within racks. Fibre Channel expansion modules in the interconnect support
direct connections from the Cisco Unified Computing System to existing native Fibre Channel SANs. The
capability to connect FCoE to native Fibre Channel protects existing storage system investments while
dramatically simplifying in-rack cabling.
Cisco UCS Manager
The Cisco 6100 Series hosts and runs the Cisco UCS Manager in a highly available configuration, enabling the
fabric interconnects to fully manage all Cisco Unified Computing System elements. Connectivity to the Cisco
UCS 5100 Series blade chassis is maintained through the Cisco UCS 2100 Series Fabric Extenders in each
blade chassis. The Cisco 6100 Series interconnects support out-of-band management through a dedicated
10/100/1000-Mbps Ethernet management port as well as in-band management.
Cisco UCS Manager typically is deployed in a clustered active-passive configuration on redundant fabric
interconnects connected through dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet clustering ports.
Optimization for Virtualization
For virtualized environments, the Cisco 6100 Series supports Cisco VM-FEX architecture. Cisco VM-FEX
architecture allows the interconnects to provide policy-based virtual machine connectivity, mobility of network
properties with the virtual machine, and a consistent operational model for both physical and virtual
environments.
