Which statement about the Cisco UC on UCS TRC and the third-party server specs-based virtualization support model is true?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
is VMware vCenter - when deploying on UC on UCS Tested Reference Configuration hardware -> optional when deploying on UC on UCS Specs-based and Third-party Server Specs-based hardware
-> mandatory -> vCenter Statistics Level 4 logging is mandatory so that Cisco TAC is able to provide effective support.

If not configured by default, Cisco TAC may request enabling these settings in order to provide effective support.
-> Also note that enablement of specific VMware vSphere management features may require vCenter and/or a higher feature Edition of vSphere ESXi.
-> Cisco Collaboration does not require its own dedicated vCenter.
-> Note that when VMware vCenter is not required and is not used, then VMware vSphere ESXi's default management interface is its free/included VMware vSphere Client (formerly branded VI Client)http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Unified_Communications_VMware_Requirements
The Cisco UC on UCS TRC (Unified Communications on Unified Computing System Tested Reference Configuration) and the third-party server specs-based virtualization support model are two different approaches to deploying virtualized UC applications on servers.
A. The statement that both the UC on UCS TRC and the third-party servers spec-based support models have rule-based approaches is not entirely accurate. While both approaches involve following certain guidelines and best practices, the UC on UCS TRC has a more prescriptive approach, providing specific configurations and requirements for the supported hardware and software components.
B. The UC on UCS TRC support model has a rule-based approach, providing a detailed, prescriptive configuration for supported hardware and software components. In contrast, the third-party servers spec-based support model is more flexible, allowing for a wider range of hardware configurations, but requiring specific configurations for software components.
C. The UC on UCS TRC support model may require a higher level of virtualization experience due to its prescriptive approach, while the third-party server spec-based support model may require less experience due to its flexibility.
D. VMware vCenter is mandatory for the UC on UCS TRC support model, as it is used for managing the virtual infrastructure and providing features such as high availability and distributed resource scheduling. The third-party server spec-based support model may or may not require vCenter, depending on the specific virtualization platform being used.
E. The statement that VMware vCenter is optional for the UC on UCS TRC support model and mandatory for the third-party server spec-based support model is incorrect. As mentioned above, vCenter is required for the UC on UCS TRC support model, while its use in the third-party server spec-based support model may vary depending on the virtualization platform being used.
In summary, while both the Cisco UC on UCS TRC and the third-party server specs-based virtualization support models have their advantages and disadvantages, they differ in their level of prescriptiveness, flexibility, and virtualization experience required. Additionally, the use of VMware vCenter may be required or optional depending on the approach being used.
