Users get controlled access to the IT resources they need on-demand and not wait for days or weeks.

Cisco UCS allows policy-based management of data center services using service profiles with pre-defined server and connectivity configurations. newScale provides the ability for UCS customers to configure and request service profiles so that UCS server blades can shift workloads as needed, resulting in increased capacity and utilization.

The newScale announcement includes the, support for Cisco UCS, membership in Cisco Developer Network, New Cloud Builder site for Cisco UCS, Cloud Operating Model Workshop: newScale also launched a new program to assist service providers and enterprises in transitioning to a cloud operating model.
