UCS hardware recommendations

Hello,

 

I was looking for a recommendation of which parts I should be looking at for buying a UCS system to run just a few virtual machines and a catalyst switch that has the WLC capability. This is for a test environment to play around with ISE and Prime so additional machines might also get added to it. 

 

However I will have to keep it relatively low cost for the business expense. 

The things I will need are:

UCS blade - no idea which one to look at but the machines I will need on it at a minimum are ISE, Prime and a windows AD infrastructure with a CA server.

Catalyst 3650 for testing the functionality of ISE with the built in wireless capabilities of the switch.

 

Cheers,

 

Waqas
