Example 6: HX Series Server Connectivity

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the composition of libraries from the Cisco Networking Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This connectivity diagram sample depicts the HX Series Server Connectivity. Being constructed on the base of the "HX-Series Server Connectivity" schematic from the article "Cisco HyperFlex Hyperconverged System with 1000 XenDesktop 7 Seats", this diagram is strict, clear, and scalable due to the used pre-made vector objects from the ConceptDraw’s Cisco Networking solution. There are depicted two UCS 6248UP switches connected with the HX220c-M4S server. The similar servers of the HX-Series are typically connected directly to the Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects. This option is convenient for managing the HX-Series rack-mount servers using a single cable for both data traffic and management traffic. Use the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to model physical topologies, to design the systems' configurations, and to depict architectures with the use of internationally recognized Cisco network devices and equipment in minutes and without efforts. Place the elements sequentially and maintain the distances between them to keep the clarity of the image.

Example 7: UCS Cluster

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the composition of libraries from the Cisco Networking Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This connectivity diagram sample illustrates the structure of the UCS Cluster. The scheme is based on the "UCS Cluster" illustration made for the "Cisco Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center, Version 1.1, Design and Deployment Guide". The Cisco UCS (Unified Computing System) is a range of rack-mount and blade servers. There are two Fabric Interconnects (FIs) on the diagram, which are joined into a cluster. These Cisco Fabric Interconnects are connected with Ethernet cables between the L1 and L2 ports, on the diagram they are differentiated by colors — red and blue. These interconnections provide well-coordinated work of the Fabric Interconnects, if one of them will become unavailable, another one will receive an alert of failure and will take management automatically. So, the Fabric Interconnects continuously monitor the statuses of each other. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and the Cisco Networking solution's range of vector design elements are the best help in designing similar diagrams.

Example 8: Proper Connection Between the Server Chassis and two Fabric Interconnects

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the composition of libraries from the Cisco Networking Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This diagram depicts the proper connection between the Server Chassis and two Fabric Interconnects, which was designed on the base of the "Proper Connection Between the Server Chassis and two UCS6100 Series Fabric Interconnects" illustration published at the article "Cisco Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center, Version 1.1, Design and Deployment Guide". Two Fabric Extenders placed at the back of the Blade Server Chassis provide four 10 GE ports each one and are connected to the corresponding separate Fabric Interconnects with ensuring the redundancy and bandwidth aggregation. There are highlighted the expansion modules, connecting Fabric Extender to ports on the expansion module is not supported. The abundance of ConceptDraw tools and vector design elements lets construct the complex accurate diagrams, supply them with the textual descriptions, bright arrows and signs with exhaustive comments, you can add an explaining legend, and other elements you need to make your diagrams the most comprehensible.
