This paper compares the network architecture, configuration, deployment, management capabilities, and performance of two systems:

• HP BladeSystem servers with Virtual Connect (VC)

• Cisco Unified Computing System® (UCS)

Both systems connect physical and virtual servers to LAN and SAN networks and manage those connections up to the server-network edge.

This paper does not compare HP CloudSystem Matrix to Cisco UCS. CloudSystem Matrix lets you readily provision and adjust infrastructure services to meet changing business demands. Neither Cisco UCS servers nor HP BladeSystem servers with VC alone provide that higher level of capability and services.
