The UCS Platform Emulator (PE)

The UCS Platform Emulator (PE) is a version of the UCS Manager that runs in a hypervisor (VMWare, Hyper-V).  No UCS hardware is required to run UCS PE.    And the UCS Platform Emulator is completely free ( login required).

UCS PE is designed for:

  • Running the UCS Manager GUI ---  for training on UCS, as well as providing "live" demos
  • Learning/developing UCS PowerTool, Python or XML scripts and commands.   The UCS PE exposes the same XML API as a physical UCS domain.
  • Staging and Modeling configuration changes.   With the UCS PE, you can import production hardware configuration, import production UCS configurations (pools, policies, templates, service-profiles), and then dry-run proposed configuration changes in a risk-free simulated environment that reflects your production environments.
