Cisco UCS Platform Emulator

Cisco has been the leader in Network Equipment for years and since they got into the Server arena they have been a leader there too.  Cisco has created the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator so that you can evaluate and train your employees on Cisco’s UCS Platform.  The Cisco UCS Platform Emulator is a free download with a Cisco login account.

You can download the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator from this link: https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-69786.  The available downloads are in the format of a VMWare template and VMDK images.

The great thing about the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator is that we can assign whatever hardware we want to the Emulator.  With the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator we can simulate whatever Cisco hardware that we want..

Once we have created this “Virtual” hardware within the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator we can then configure this hardware from the UCS Interface.  The Cisco UCS Platform Emulator shows us the exact same interface as the actual hardware based Cisco UCS.

 

In future articles we will talk about actually installing the Cisco UCS Platform Emulator and then adding some hardware to it.
