    EMC Ionix Unified Infrastructure Manager

    Single point of management for Vblock infrastructuresEMC Ionix Unified Infrastructure Manager (UIM) enables simplified, integrated provisioning,

    configuration, change, and compliance management for Vblock Infrastructure Packages (VIPs). As

    the newest addition to the EMC Ionix IT management portfolio, Ionix UIM is purpose-built for Vblock

    infrastructure element management, managing the Vblocks as a single entity. This dramatically

    reduces operational expenditureswhile providing simplified management functionality that

    empowers companies to more easily make the transition from physical to virtual to private cloud

    infrastructures. Upon initial release, Ionix UIM will fully support management of the Cisco Unified

    Computing System (UCS). This will evolve into full support of Vblock infrastructures.

    Overview of Cisco UCS configuration changes

  • Service profile catalogService profiles are the recipe for building services and the basis for delivering infrastructure as

    a service. With Ionix UIM you can build various tiers of service profiles for network, compute, and

    storage configurations and combine them into an offering for customers. This enables Vblock

    components to be delivered as standard units of service to a customer, selected via the Vblock

    dashboard. Service profile capabilities will be provided for Cisco infrastructure in the first release.

    tion drift. The first release of Ionix UIM provides this for Cisco UCS and related network infrastructure
