What is the deal with a U? Not the University of Miami Hurricanes, but rather the U within your data center. As more and more organizations move their resources from an on premise design to a data center design, the U’s become a big deal. When you are paying for space on a per U model every little U becomes extremely valuable. When our clients come to us and ask us to help them design a data center environment, we plan around trying to maximize each little U for them. One way that we’ve found to be very effective in space savings is with the triple combo of Nimble, VMware, and Cisco. With Nimble’s Storage, VMware’s vSphere and Cisco’s UCS solution, your organization will need less space to run the company.
