“UCS for my wife”

Sad though it is I was trying to convey the value of Cisco UCS to my wife, and in trying to find an analogy that she could relate to, and that would get the point across, I sketched out the attached diagram. Anyway she now appreciates the benefits of.

1. Less physical kit to power, cool and maintain
2. A unified device which if it fails you just replace it and all your recorded programs etc.. are not lost (Stateless)
3. It can store far more programs than any other comparable device (EMT)
4. Uses a unified cabling system to the TV (Unified Fabric / FCoE)
5. A single remote control that controls everything (UCSM)

    This is actually pretty cute/clever/funny. I am relieved that you aren’t TRADING UCS for your WIFE (as the title could suggest.) 🙂
