The Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) is a data center platform that unites compute, network, storage access, and virtualization resources 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.

The Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 1280 is an eight-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable mezzanine card designed exclusively for Cisco UCS B-series blade servers. The card enables a policy-based, stateless, agile server infrastructure that can present up to 256 PCIe standards-compliant interfaces to the host that can be dynamically configured as either network interface cards (NICs) or host bus adapters (HBAs). In addition, the Cisco UCS VIC 1280 supports Cisco Virtual Machine Fabric Extender (VM-FEX) technology, which extends the Cisco UCS fabric interconnect ports to virtual machines, simplifying server virtualization deployment.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I appreciate the interface for UCS as it makes it much easier to manage specific scopes without having to go to the command line on a console. But you still need the console; I did not appreciate that I had to locate a port replicator and rollover cable to connect to the fiber interface. July 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by We use the Cisco UCS blades as a set of 6 Hypervisors using VMware, tied to NetApp SAN storage over FC and iSCSI. November 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The mother of our servers pod. This server system is quite heavy. Configuring it also quite difficult, but afterwards, its start to perform just like any ordinary servers, but with all the Cisco feature build around it. let say FCoE, best thermal dissipation, and rock solid performance and stability. Installed using vmware ESXi designed specific for cisco UCS. March 19, 2015
