Unified and Engineered Systems, Servers, and Blades
Unified and Engineered Systems
Unified compute systems typically integrate servers, storage, and networking switches into an appliance like system. The management software or orchestration layer is the differentiator feature between these types of systems. The most advanced systems fully integrate all detailed tasks across all hardware and software components of the system to make the provisioning of new services a very easy process.
Unified systems designed for mixed workloads (e.g., VMware, Microsoft HV’s) and unified systems designed for application specific configurations (e.g., SAP HANA, Oracle DB, SQL, Exchange, and more …)
Engineered systems for specific applications (e.g., ExaData, ExaLogic) and general purpose engineered systems (e.g., ODA, Super Cluster) for mixed applications.
